Meeting Areas Become A Conducive Place to Be Creative A dull and intimidating meeting room might not bring out the best in every employee. Even a client listening to a presentation in a conference room that is cluttered and undecorated might not get a very good impression. On the other hand a modern and stylish room can bring out creativity and unique ideas from the staff which in turn the company can enjoy in the long run. Even the client will appreciate the whole experience of sitting down in a long presentation or meeting as long as the environment is comfortable and encourages expression.
Glass walls. Forget thick drywall which keeps natural light from flowing through a workspace. Frosted glass can add a little privacy while still letting in the sunlight. The best part: natural light keeps workers happy and healthy. Whether youre searching for a new office space or renovating your current location an office makeover can give your company a fresh face and a new start. The key is to share your goals with your office design team early on so youll have time to implement the projects you had in mind. With some creativity and enough planning in advance companies can customize their new office space to reflect changing brand identity employee needs and the latest innovations in the marketplace.
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.
Instead of isolating people in private offices and rows of cubicles offices will become much more fluid and flexible. Companies will build in lots of open space to encourage creativity and communication. Office furniture will become less rigid more movable and more comfortable. As people shift from desktops to laptops and tablets there will be fewer assigned desks or cubicles. Instead employees will gather and work where they can be most productive. At the same time the work office will no longer occupy a fixed location for increasing numbers of workers. If youve ever answered a business email at home or conducted an important client call from the airport you know that this trend has already begun. As adoption rates for mobile technologies continue to soar working outside the office on a regular basis will soon become the rule rather than the exception for many employees.
Every company wants to fit as many people as possible in the allotted space for the best price possible. Reducing overhead costs of leasehold space and/or decreasing utility expenses for a building your own has an immediate and measurable impact on the bottom line. And of course the synergies of having a more effective work environment can boost productivity. Design obstacles are the structural constraints within a building that can create issues when space planning and office furniture including columns load bearing walls windows and odd-shaped rooms that office must be designed around. A custom furniture manufacturer such as Interior Concepts Inc. can literally build furniture to suit your unique floor plan. Commercial interior design and facilities were originally designed to be office spaces; they have adequate power lighting and ventilation for office work spaces built into their design. This will probably not be the case with your house or other building that you have decided to use as a small or home office.
