When it comes to adding your personal style to your office your choices will depend on your tastes. Pictures are the easiest way to personalize your office. Family photos add a personal touch to your office. Hang them on the walls or place a few on your desk. Frame your diplomas and degrees in rich looking frames and hang them where they can be seen. They will remind you of all the hard work and dedication it took to get where you are and will show clients the same. If you have neutral coloured walls choose bright and colourful pictures such as landscapes or abstracts. If your wall colour is rich and deep opt for black and white pictures as a contrast.
Since a functional office is your main goal start with searching for a desk. Check out desk designs online or in the flyers of local stores that carry office furniture. Know the measurements of your office and keep them in mind when shopping for a desk. Purchase a desk that will fit easily in your space and still give you room for a desk chair and for walking around. Choose a desk that has enough storage space to be functional and to make working easier. Having to repeatedly get up to retrieve items while working can be frustrating and distracting. Having a desk with enough storage space to keep all of your necessary items will help you complete your task quicker. If an additional filing cabinet is needed keep it close to your work area. Filing cabinets today come in black and wood finish instead of just the flat metal finish. These finishes help the filing cabinet to blend into the room more.
Most companies pay a lot of attention to the design of their websites marketing collateral logos and other marketing tools. And rightfully so as professionally designed marketing materials are essential for attracting new clients and growing the business. But what about your office? Todays work environment is undergoing radical change. And unless you design your office accordingly you may not be able to keep up with the evolving needs of clients or your employees. About two decades ago the Internet began transforming our work world by making access to information instantaneous and ubiquitous. Now new mobile technologies are kicking that transformation into high gear. With the emergence of smart phones tablets and powerful data-sharing platforms people can now work virtually anywhere with anyone at any time. As a result the workplace of the future will be less centralized more mobile and far more flexible than todays traditional offices.
Noise Employees have difficulty working productively in noisy environments since stress levels increase and concentration is lowered. There are many design tricks architects can employ to deal with poor acoustics. Using the correct materials in the correct location is key to achieving the proper level of sound absorption. For example ceiling tiles should generally be applied at a low ceiling height. If the ceiling is very high then other methods need to be applied such as lining the walls with fabric banners or acoustical wall panels to avoid the sound bouncing off of drywall or other non-absorbent materials. To keep voices from traveling too far it is useful to places highly-absorbent materials at mouth level throughout the office. Another effective technique in limiting a noisy environment is to create a monotone background sound known as white noise. This can be achieved in a variety of ways such as through the strategic placement of fans and air conditioners the use of water fountains or by installing a sound masking audio system.
Space Layout By selecting ergonomic chairs and workstations to maximize physical comfort or by installing shelving and cabinets to keep the work area tidy you can help increase employee productivity. However there is something that has a much more pronounced effect on employee function and psychology: the overall space plan. Planning an office space layout is not unlike urban planning in that people need both public and private spaces to function adequately and productively. By applying the urban planning model to office space design the ideal office layout should have both private and public meeting spaces private office and more public ones (cubicles) and various passageways to allow for easy traffic flow such as hallways and corridors.
