Design Offices by Yourself
Corporate office design is very important in creating a productive and pleasant working environment. Also, it is important to the success of your company and it is well worth consulting professionals to get it right. Here's how to do it without any design company.
You Can Never Have Too Much Light Or Space
An office lack of natural light can have bad influence on mood and productivity, both employees and employers would greatly benefit from more exposure.
In corporate office design, natural light is a benefit always being ignored. However, it should be one of the major considerations in corporate office design and layout. It can make a big difference.
In order to improve the amount of natural sunlight within an office, you can create an open environment by tearing down interior walls, using glass walls for private offices and benching desks instead of claustrophobic workstations.
Give employees enough space. It is not just to give them bigger desks, but you must also consider 'circulation space’, the space in corridors and between desks that enable people to move around freely. There is nothing more disturbing than having someone bumping into you every time when they walk by.
Create Break-out Spaces
Break-out spaces do not just mean the spaces employees can eat lunch. They provide a crucial place away from the office desks, which can help improve creativity. With non-bookable, break-out spaces create for those informal chats or just a change of scenery. These spaces take down barriers to communication and encourage spontaneity in the office.
Invest In Furniture
In corporate office design, most of smaller companies and startups may be tempted to save money on the office furniture, but in the long-term, you cannot save anything.
It has been proved that spend more money on every chair, you can save thousands of dollars in the long run. It may seem like a very small object, but employees spend the majority time sitting in an office chair. Trust me, when they suffer the ill effects of an uncomfortable chair, like low back pain and general discomfort, they do begin to pay attention to where and how they are sitting, thus contributing to complaints and absenteeism.
