Some of the things you should take into consideration when renovating an office space or constructing it from scratch includes the needs of your company, employees and office trends.
Your priority should be to opt for renovations that improve the office space in terms of making it a more productive space for your employee. It should also be in line with your brand identity and reflect your business’s mission, vision and value system.
Ask yourself what you hope to achieve with your renovation strategy. This will help you streamline the process by automatically cutting down unnecessary additions and coming up with a game plan that both, fits your budget and meets all your requirements.
Don’t forget to stay updated with office trends while renovating which can help your workplace evolve into a more interactive and engaging space.
We’ve compiled a list of our favourite design trends in 2020!
Let the natural light in
This is one trends that has been carrying forward from the past few years, simply because of its popularity. Optimizing natural light in office spaces invites more warmth in the room and can increases productivity levels in workers. It also makes the office a healthier space to be in as research shows it can reduce stress on the eyes, as well as the risk of headaches.
However, it just doesn’t end here. While this can be a complex task to achieve depending on the structure and kind of space available, it’s important to complement it with effective light solutions within the building.
Utilizing office corners
We’re not just talking about where the water cooler gossip takes place. The nooks and crannies of office buildings are getting more attention because they’re unconventional spaces brimming with potential of adding aesthetic value to the room.
It includes places like under the stairs, on window ledges, outside the bathroom or even in empty corridors. Maybe this space is going to waste and you can work on a renovation that either decorates the space or allows it to be turned into a part of something else, such as a bigger board room or employee break room. However, this depends entirely on the need of the hour.
Making the workplace more mindful
Turning the office space into one which promotes mindfulness at the workplace is a win-win for your company. Some of its benefits include boosting employee satisfaction, which can invariably cause better performance and higher sales.
Mindful design stresses the importance of creating spaces which can allow employees to detach and take breaks from technology. They help take a step back from potentially triggering sensory overload situations which are common in the workplace. It can even be a room that allows employees to meditate or find their focus so they can return to their work.
