Some may decorate their office space with family photos and plants, but one employee took it a step further in an office decorating contest, two viral videos show.
The videos were shared by Jeff Feigal on his TikTok account, @jefffeigal, and they showed off the various intimate elements he incorporated into his workspace. Commentators were blown away by the amount of work he put into the contest, and some offered additional suggestions.
“My work had an office decorating contest, so I took it to another level,” read the text on the first videoviewed over 4 million times.
This video showed the exterior of the office cubicle. A roof and chimney were built over the cabin while vapor from a diffuser acted as chimney smoke.
A second video, this one viewed more than 175,000 times, revealed the entrance to the booth. A small driveway lined with fake plants led viewers into the space, while a child’s car was parked just outside. Mounted on the roof was a security camera. A screen that displayed a crackling fire complemented the cozy ambience of the workspace.
While Feigal has taken the task of decorating his office space to a different level, he’s not the only one bringing a personal touch to his office space.
According to Indeed, there are a number of factors to consider when decorating an office.
“Each office has its own guiding themes for its décor, but the goal is often the same: to boost morale to increase productivity,” the article states.
He then outlined different tips that can be implemented throughout the office, including his personal workspace.
Employees were encouraged to bring their “favorite things from home”, such as personal photos, stuffed animals and collectibles.
“Add a colorful blanket or soft cushion to your office chair,” the article suggested. “It makes your work environment feel more like home.”
Throughout the office, other details like artwork, furniture, and the right lighting can work together to create a comfortable environment.
Along with receiving praise from viewers, Feigal received additional ideas for what else he can add to the space.
“You really said, ‘If I can’t work from home, I’ll come home,'” one viewer wrote.
Another commented, “I feel like you’ve been thinking about it for a while. You won!”
Suggestions offered by reviewers included a satellite dish, an Amazon package in front of the cabin and an Easy-Bake oven.
“Then you can make fresh cookies for your neighbors,” wrote one commenter.
Some viewers wondered if the impressive decorations would violate fire safety code, but he said his space was away from fire sprinklers.
He said in the comments section that the best-decorated cabin will be determined by a vote on Thursday.
Newsweek contacted Jeff Feigal for comment.
