5 Unique Ways to Upgrade Your Workspace

Ah, the search for the perfect workspace studio. A place where creativity flows like a river and productivity reigns supreme. And, when you’re working from home, it can be especially challenging to strike the right balance between comfort and inspiration. But never fear, dear reader, for I have recently made a bold move to pursue the perfect workspace. I invested in a few items that might have cost me my security deposit, but the ambiance they have created is truly priceless.

I believe that our surroundings play a crucial role in shaping our mood, outlook, and overall well-being. And as someone who spends a significant amount of time at my workspace, I knew I had to take action to ensure that my environment was inspiring, clutter-free, and conducive to productivity. So, I set out on a mission to find the perfect pieces to bring my vision to life.

Guitar Frame

The age-old puzzle of trying to fit a square peg into a round room and needing everything to pull double-duty! It’s a problem that plagues us all, especially those of us who live in apartments where every inch counts. But fear not, dear reader, for I have found a solution to this age-old problem. And it all starts with a particular piece of wall in my apartment.

You see, this wall sticks out like a sore thumb, and it’s pretty much the centerpiece of my abode. It’s the first thing people see when they walk in, and I knew I had to make the most of it. So, I put on my thinking cap and came up with an idea. I wanted to create a frame that would serve as a place to hang my go-to guitar when inspiration struck and have sound absorption properties. In other words, I wanted a multi-functional piece that would be the center stage of my place.

I spent hours sketching and sketching until I finally had it all down on paper. And then, I took my vision to a local frame shop and asked them to bring my idea to life. And let me tell you, I was blown away by the masterpiece that came back with me to my studio. It was exactly what I had envisioned and was the perfect solution to my limited space problem.

The frame was sturdy, elegant, and had the perfect sound absorption to make my guitar playing sessions even more enjoyable. And the best part? It was my place’s centerpiece, adding style and functionality to my apartment. So, if you’re facing a similar problem and are looking for a flexible solution, I would highly recommend taking a similar approach. Invest in a multi-functional piece that serves a purpose and adds style and elegance to your space. You won’t regret it!

Paint it up

An accent wall can be a game-changer when it comes to sprucing up your home decor. A pop of color here, a bold pattern there, and suddenly your dull and drab living room is transformed into a stylish and sophisticated space. But, with so many colors, how do you pick the perfect shade for your accent wall? Well, my friend, allow me to share a few tips that will have you picking colors like a pro in no time.

First things first, consider your existing color palette. If your walls are painted a neutral color, you can choose a bold and daring hue for your accent wall. But if your walls are already painted bold, then it’s best to choose a complementary or neutral shade for your accent wall. The goal is to create a harmonious and balanced space, not a color explosion that’ll give you a headache.

Next, consider the mood you want to create in your work space. Different colors enhance or evoke different emotions, so choose wisely. If you create a calm and relaxing atmosphere, choose a blue or green accent wall. If you want to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, then choose a red or yellow accent wall. And if you make a bold and daring atmosphere, choose a black or jewel-tone accent wall.

Lastly, don’t be afraid to get creative and have some fun. An accent wall is a perfect opportunity to show off your personality and bring a touch of individuality to your space. So, choose a color that you love, that makes you smile, and that you’ll enjoy looking at every day.

Sherwin-Williams’ Iron Ore

Step aside, beige and gray; there’s a new sheriff in town! Sherwin-Williams’ Iron Ore is the color I choose to nestle my guitar frame masterpiece. This rich, warm hue, with its subtle black undertones, is the epitome of sophistication. But what sets Iron Ore apart from all the other neutral paint colors? Buckle up, buttercup, because this color is about versatility! It can be paired with many styles, from modern to traditional, and it can turn any room into a cozy studio and inviting space. Whether you’re going for a chic and timeless look, or a bold and daring one, Iron Ore is a perfect choice.

And if you’re worried about Iron Ore being too dark or overpowering, don’t fret! This color strikes the perfect balance between bold and understated, making it the ideal choice for large and small spaces. Whether you’re painting an accent wall or an entire room, Iron Ore will add just the right amount of drama to your decor. So, go ahead, and give it a try. I promise you won’t regret it!

The Slat Panels that Slap

Sick of walls that are as bland as plain white bread? Want to add a touch of sophistication to your space? My next decision was The Wood Veneer Hub’s Smoked Oak Acoustic Slat Wood Wall Panels. These panels not only add a smoky and mysterious air to your walls but also soak up sound, creating a cozy and tranquil atmosphere in your workspace.

But before you start reaching for your wallet, take heed: these panels don’t come cheap. In fact, they’re the cost equivalent of a small yacht. But why settle for mediocre walls when you can have both stylish and sound-absorbing walls? And let’s be real, who needs a roof over their head when they have these panels adorning their walls?

And the cost is not the only thing that sets these panels apart. They’re also made from high-quality Smoked Oak wood veneer, ensuring their durability and longevity. Their acoustic properties make them ideal for home theaters, recording studios, or just for creating a peaceful ambiance in your home.

Slatpanel®: The Maintenance Lowdown and Installation Insider Info

So, you’ve got your hands on some Slatpanel®, and you’re ready to take on the world (or at least, your walls). But wait! Before you start installing, you should know a few things about care and maintenance.

First things first, I recommend giving your panels a protective finish. Something like wood oil will protect your panels while keeping their natural look and feel. And, if you’re feeling fancy, a light dusting or a quick hoover session will prevent any dust buildup. But, if you’re daring, you can skip the finish and wipe your panels down with a dry cloth. The choice is yours.

Next up, let’s talk about fire rating. The panels can be available with a fire-rated felt backing upon request, but the face materials are not. So, if you’re looking for a fire-rated option, give them a shout; these peeps are happy to help.

Now, let’s move on to cutting and installing your Slatpanel®. They recommend using a sharp saw to cut the slats and felt width-wise and a craft knife to cut the felt lengthways.

And finally, the installation.

We’ve all been there. You want to tackle a home improvement project but don’t have the right tools. Well, fear not, my friend, because I have a solution for you. Just call in a favor from a handyman, and you’re all set!

In my case, I called upon the services of my trusty brother, who just so happens to be a handyman. And, let me tell you, his skills and tools came in handy (pun intended). The only catch? The cost of his services was a saucepan of my delicious home-cooked fideo.

Now, some might say that a saucepan of fideo is a small price to pay for the use of tools and a handyman’s skills. But, in my book, it was a win-win situation. I got the help I needed, and my brother got a tasty meal. And, at the end of the day, isn’t that what family is all about? Helping each other out and sharing a meal together.

So, the next time you’re tackling a home improvement project and find yourself lacking the right tools, don’t hesitate to call in a favor from a handyman. And, if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll even be able to trade your culinary skills for their toolbox. It’s a handy trade-off if you ask me.


You have three options: glue the panels straight onto the wall with construction glue or grab adhesive, screw the panels directly into the wall (making sure to use the correct fixings), or screw the panels into 2″ timber battens. And, if you’re looking to achieve optimum sound absorption, we recommend combining the panels with Rockwool sound insulation behind the panels between the battens. This will give you Class A sound absorption, and your walls will be the envy of all your friends.

So, there you have it, folks. Happy installing!
