Architects and interior designers take many factors into consideration when designing interior spaces. They are well aware that the physical work environment has a direct psychological impact on people affecting their behavior emotions and thoughts. Creating a well-designed environment is just as important as building a functional one since good design boosts creativity and productivity. There are numerous factors that come into play when considering good office design: lighting temperature color noise levels furniture space layout among others. Here are a few key considerations.
Citrus colors. Tangerine lime and similar shades energize and invigorate workers. If these hues are too bold for your walls try to incorporate brightly-colored upholstery art and signage. Office color trends may be fleeting but citrus accents should stay fresh for years to come. Natural materials. Think hardwood or bamboo floors earthy wall coverings corkboard and more. Bringing the outside in is the goal of many forward-thinking interior designers today. (Glass walls are great for this.) Plus naturally-sourced sustainable materials can be a green option for environmentally-conscious companies.
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.
Theres no question about it - an attractive office space increases employee creativity productivity and overall morale. Designer offices tend to attract and keep their employees longer than more unattractive ones and good workplace design is one of the top key factors that affect job satisfaction. In fact it has been suggested that a well-designed office can increase productivity by about 20%. Although many companies do not see investing in good workplace design as a priority (almost half) almost 9 out of 10 employees claim that the quality of their work environment directly affects their attitude toward work. It seems then that it would be foolish for employers not to try and find good design solutions to boost productivity - in the end it will be a worthwhile and satisfactory investment for everyone.
Office design ideas focus primarily on creating a functional work space and then on creating a pleasant and comfortable environment. Office spaces need to promote maximum productivity. The whole purpose of an office is to utilize it to complete work related tasks. Create a space where completing these tasks is simple and comfortable. Design the majority of your office space around functionality and then add your own personal touches and style.
