Office Design

A recent article, Why Design and Decor Matters in the Workplace by Ceren Cubukcu says that office should be a place where all employees feel convenient and happy to come for work, after all, it is their second home.

Here are some tips to create a more personal, creative and productive workspace.

Use ergonomic furniture and equipment

Furniture and equipment are significant in designing office space to help increase employees’ productivity and efficiency.

Open office space with cubes

A sense of privacy is important to your employees so that they can focus on their work and reduce distractions.

Provide common areas

Common areas like kitchen, meeting space and relaxation rooms are essential and beneficial for your employees. Remember, they are spending at least 8 hours a day in the office so having common areas for breaks and get-together are significant to their productivity.

Decorate with plants

Plants purify the air by eliminating mold and bacteria, keeping employees healthier. Furthermore, studies proved that plants around the office space improve employees’ productivity levels— plants help reduce stress and create positive atmosphere.

Use natural daylight and soft lighting

Try to use natural daylight or soft lighting inside the office instead of fluorescent lighting. Natural lighting is linked to healthy sleep habits so your teams show up to work on time. Also, employees who are exposed to natural daylight are usually happier and more engaged.

Use colors

Colors have mental and emotional effects on people. For instance, blue is the color of serenity and wisdom, yellow nurtures creativity, white signifies purity and transparency, etc.  You can choose any color according to what energy you want your to have in your workspace.
