If you’re going to spend all day in an office or workspace, why not make it comfortable and aesthetically pleasing? Office interior design may go unnoticed by some business owners, but it’s so important to the health, happiness, and productivity of workers.
Do: Reflect The Brand Of The Company
Brand is one of the most important aspects of building a successful business, so it’s important to always design the interior of a company to reflect its brand. The brand needs to be reflected not only on the outside, but also the inside. Logos and icons should be placed throughout the interior, and the atmosphere should reflect the values of of the company. For example, Bloguettes is a fun and creative studio, so having music playing throughout the day in a collaborative work environment reflects the fun, outgoing, and creative brand that Bloguettes has built.
Do: Natural Light Makes The Workspace Bright
Light, light, light! Having good lighting is one of the most important aspects of interior design! Bringing in natural light to a workspace not only brightens up the environment, but it creates a productive atmosphere for the employees within the space. Natural light also allows an office interior to be inviting and warm to employees, and makes a room look open and spacious.
Don’t: Buy Inexpensive Furniture Just To Save A Pretty Penny
Aesthetically pleasing furniture is always a plus with office interiors, but it’s a double-whammy if you find both good looking and comfortable pieces. Having furniture that is comfortable for employees is important for focus and health. Sitting for hours each day can have long-term effects on an individual’s health, so spending a little more on furniture that’s better for the human body is very important in office interior designs.
Don’t: Create A Non-Conducive Work Environment
Finally, non-conducive work environments decrease employee collaboration, happiness, and success. Cubicles as a work space scream seclusion. Having an open workspace allows employees to interact with each other and have conversations to get their minds off work for a few minutes. Not only will this help employees to feel refreshed, but it will also increase collaboration and teamwork in the office.
