Things to Consider When Redesigning Your Office Space

3043545-slide-s-4-the-open-office-designed-with-purposeThe design for your office space is important. The colors and patterns that surround your workspace can actually affect your productivity. The chairs you use can either support you properly or not at all. There are many things to think about when redesigning your office. You don’t want to cut any corners and end up with an unproductive workspace. Here are just a few of the top things to consider when redesigning your office.

 

  • Furniture: As mentioned before, something as little as a chair can affect productivity. You want to make sure you have adequate storage, proper desk space, and comfortable, but supportive, seating. When shopping for furniture consider refurbished as well as new in order to save money. Corporate Office Interiors offer new and refurbished office furniture.
  • Color: Harsh colors have been known to cause headaches and distractions in working environments. On the other hand, blank walls have been known to bore employees into daydreaming. It is important to stay away from “hot” colors such as bright oranges, pinks, and yellows. Also, you want to be cautious about going too dark. You do not want to feel like you’re in a cave. Blues are a safe bet for any office space.
  • Patterns: Patterns are as difficult as colors. It may be safest to stay away from patterns altogether, but if you are considering patterns make sure they flow. Make sure that the patterns blend with the office space and have a theme, you don’t want patterns to be too distracting.
  • Space: You want to make sure you have sufficient space. Make sure that you have enough room to do your work, but you also want to make efficient use of the space. Find the happy medium between “cramped, uncomfortable workspace” and “too much room to know what to do with.”
  • Atmosphere: Do you want a social atmosphere with open office space? Or do you want individual offices? This is important to consider when redesigning your office.

Make sure you are set on the type of environment you want for your office. It should be conducive to all different kinds of employees because you will want diversity in your coworkers. Consider all these things and more when you are redesigning your office space.
