When it comes to your office, you want a stimulating environment that encourages motivation. This way, you will get the best results out of your business and keep your employees happy and healthy. There are a number of ways you can do this, using colours and prints, all the way to furniture and light exposure.
So, we’ve listed a few design and décor tips, to help inspire you in the process…
- Colours – Each colour has a psychological benefit, orange promotes happiness, red hunger and yellow optimism. Because of this, it’s important to consider the colour scheme of your office, as choosing the wrong colour can negatively impact work and thought processes. Opt for a bright, clean colour. These colours will make a room feel less crowded and larger than it is which can help minimise stress levels for you and your staff.
- Furnishings – As insignificant as it may seem, furniture has a massive impact on your office. For example, the levels of tables and chairs can determine whether or not staff are comfortable at their desk. Lower desks can lead to back ache, and bad posture. To combat this, opt for a desk that is both a reasonable height and fits with the height of the chair too. Consider practicality and not appearance.
- Light Exposure – External light is a must when working in an office. Sitting at the same desk for a prolonged period of time can become dull, especially if there is no view of the outside. Exposure to natural light will lift moods, especially during the cold months. Your employees will be arriving to work when it’s dark and leaving when it’s dark – because of this, it’s important to allow them daylight throughout the day when at their desks.
