Optimising efficiency in the workplace need not be so complicated, especially when considering the benefits that come with multifunctional bungee cords; if you’ve already read our previous blog post of the ways to use bungee cords in the classroom, you’ll know that there’s more to them than meets the eye! This cost-effective method carries several uses that may not have even crossed your mind, so we’ve put together a list of our favourite DIY workplace projects that your colleagues can get involved with too. Prepare to get creative with these weird and wonderful ways that bungee cords can help in the office…
With plenty of colours to choose from, bungee cords are one way to brighten up your office environment without burning a hole in your pocket. Armed with clips and pegs, you can transform your office walls from drab to fab with a fun display, such as paying credit to staff member photos. Experiment with the bungee cord’s positioning too, perhaps creating a zig-zag pattern and intertwining with fairy lights for some extra pizzazz.
Do you have a broken shelf on your hands that could be repurposed? If so, get involved with a spot of DIY and start rebuilding your own! If the shelving has already been removed and you’re left with the outer casing, start drilling some holes at either side and feed the cords through them. And there you have it! The bungee cords act as a protective strap that prevents any files or bits of stationery from falling out to avoid any safety hazards.
How to fix a laptop bag handle
Got a broken bag strap on your hands? Make your own with a bungee cord! We’ve all been there before and had to cope with the embarrassment of your bag’s entire contents spilling out onto the floor. It’s unfortunately all too common for a strap to succumb to the weight of office equipment, and that’s why bungee cords are brilliant for this purpose – given their strength. Clip the bungee cord to where the broken strap once was, adjusting the length as needed. For some extra comfort, you may choose to make your own shoulder padding too, which can be clipped onto the cord.
Similar to repurposing a worn out book shelf or broken laptop bag, you need not throw out a chair with an old seat. Bungee cords can help in the office by bringing life back to old furniture, and although you may not think it, this underrated method makes for some very comfortable seating. There are several other benefits of a bungee cord chair, being that there’s increased airflow due to the gaps between the woven design, they’re easy to transport, and they’re great for improving posture too! So, what are you waiting for?
