If you want to really go above and beyond, consider springing for some basic home décor items. Command strips will let you hang pictures on the wall without damaging them. Throw rugs and pillows are my favorite way to make a space warmer and more inviting. Everyone comments on the gorgeous macramé pillow in my office that I found on clearance for $5!
Pulling all of this together is a small effort but makes for a big impact to daily work life. It’s a great way to delight team members using the space you’ve got.
No ping pong balls required.
