Make an impression on your clients: Tips to spruce up your home decor for video meetings

January 26, 2021

Nowadays, business meetings are less about putting on a sharp outfit to meet in an office and more about making sure you have a stable Internet connection. But that doesn’t mean you can’t impress your clients on video!

While the first impression may not be a firm handshake, what’s placed behind you on the walls and surrounding your desk can make a difference. The following modern home decor tips will surely make an impression on your clients during video meetings.

Modern home decor items

Choose colours that reflect your personality

In person, it’s easy to capture our personality in how we dress, our demeanour, and the way we carry ourselves. Choosing the right colours for the backdrop of virtual meetings can make a big difference. Bold and vibrant colours like red, gold, yellow, and orange can instantly energize the meeting, while neutral colours bring a cool and professional vibe. Pick colours that complement each other to create harmony.

Showcase books and decor on a modern bookshelf

A visible modern bookshelf in the backdrop of your meetings is an excellent opportunity to spark conversation. Showcase books that are related to your industry to let your clients know that you’re an expert on the topic at hand. Add interesting modern decorative items to spark interest and as a subtle way to demonstrate your attention to detail.

Add greenery

Plants are a great way to make your space stand out. Freshen up the bookshelf or floating shelves behind you with greenery, or choose a large plant for bright energy. Not only are plants a great way to add colour and a touch of nature to your space, but they also filter and clean the air you breathe every day.

Invest in artwork

Another great conversation starter is beautiful, contemporary artwork as the setting behind you. Depending on the energy you want to give off, you can create the feel of tranquillity, make an otherwise plain background pop with colour, make a bold statement, or simply create a point of interest.
