Did you know that your office space design can have a negative impact on employee productivity?
Dull, lifeless office design can make people dread going to work. Modern office designs are specifically made to look aesthetically pleasing while being functional and increasing productivity. If you are considering giving your office space an update, we have listed 5 inspiring office design ideas that you can use.
1. Get creative with your company colours
When clients visit your office, you want it to reflect who you are as a team. What better way to do this than to have a bold office logo and mission statement greet them as soon as they enter. Your brand colours must have pride of place in your office. The best corporate office designs incorporate company colours. This will make the office space reflective of you and your business. The right colours can affect how clients feel in your office.
2. Make your office feel like home
On average, people spend a third of their lives at work. For a long time, it was believed that you had to separate home and work. This may work in the sense of not letting work stress affect your home life but in office design, home design works in your favour. A touch of home is relaxing and calming. You can have comfortable couches and cushy seats for employees and clients to relax on. Environmental psychologists believe, that bringing nature into an education facility, workspace or even the home, can have a great relaxing and positive outcome into the space plants and greenery is introduced. Big-name companies like google and apple, have forgone the traditional office. Instead, have opted for their employees to work in any space they see fit. Whether it be on a couch, in the cafeteria or outdoors, they believe that if you are performing well in a certain space, why lot let their employee continue to do so.
3. Get modern office furniture
We all know that computer cords and network extensions are not nice to see. They also get in the way and mess with functionality. New furniture designs take this into consideration. Outlets are now integrated into desks and cords can be discreetly funnelled into table legs so that they are not distracting. No more fuss is the order of the day. Plants and a nice bookshelf can make an office feel more modern. Ergonomic furniture will also allow your employees to function better for longer and more importantly, comfortably. Sore backs and necks will have a productivity effect on your business. A comfortable employee is a productive employee.
It is widely believed, that incorporating the correct lighting, can have a positive or negative impact on a person’s mood. Most new schools built today in Australia will incorporate lighting to minimize shadows. Shadows are believed to make a person feel tired and sleepy, thus resulting in a student not paying attention. Implementing the correct lighting can bring the outdoors in, where dull lighting will affect your employees negatively.
5. Incorporate local artwork
Art has always been a great way to make any office space look amazing. Not everyone has a budget to get expensive artworks hung or displayed in their offices. In any city or town, there are local upcoming artists that are dying to get their work out there. This is a great way to get the artwork to brighten up your walls at a decent price while advertising local talent to everyone that walks into your office. This will also have a positive outcome for your business as it will be supporting local talent. This will go on to advertise your business via word of mouth.
