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.
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.
Making Visitors and Clients Feel Welcome and Comfortable Every business must understand that the company brand extends even to the offices. It shows how committed the organization is to get excellent work done and to make their staff happy and comfortable. The reception area could possibly be the only chance of the company to make a good impression to a potential client visiting the office. The design should make the reception table or desk stand out and easily be recognised. Here visitors can be welcomed and orientated. If at first sight a potential client immediately feels comfortable the company begins to build the notion that they can be trusted. It is now very popular to contract the services of experts in this field to help the business achieve this very goal.
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.
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.
