Description

Having workers who never need to rest and unwind is a dream of every employer, but every employer also knows that that is not possible, especially if you want to have productive, focused, happy and healthy employees. That’s why every good company needs to have a lounge area or a break space that will allow workers to relax, recuperate and clear their minds. These areas also encourage co-workers to communicate, share ideas and offer support for each other which builds a sense of community and solidarity. An original, creative and fun design is also very important! So, here are some of the best office lounge and break room ideas.

The cigar lounge vibe

If you’re nostalgic for the olden times, you can opt for a cigar lounge vibe for your break room. Try to achieve a relaxing and mysterious atmosphere with a lot of warm wood and leather seating. Walnut shelves filled with (empty or full) whisky bottles, beer (or juice) on tap and plenty of space for talking and relaxing is what every cigar lounge needs— and you don’t even need cigars! Of course, artisan coffee and tea are a must for every office.

An active rest

When you’re stuck with a problem you just can’t solve or when you have a particularly demanding customer, all you need to do is get moving! It will get your blood pumping, fill you with fresh oxygen and just help you unwind. That’s why having a lounge with plenty of physical activities is a great idea! Create a ping pong room that will certainly raise your heart rate and even encourage some friendly competition. For more infuriating problems that can’t be solved with just a little sweat from ping pong, you can get a punching bag for your lounge. It might look a bit aggressive, but it’s actually a great way to let off some steam and clear your mind. It will even make office conflict rates go down!

A fun break room

If you want to raise your workers’ morale and make them excited to come to work every morning, you need to get them to have fun. You can easily achieve that with a lounge filled with fun activities like video game consoles, vintage arcade games and board games. A quick game of pool after lunch is the perfect way to communicate with co-workers, share great ideas and just get to know your colleagues better. Additionally, don’t forget some comfy seating. Your safest bet is to invest in comfy and large couches that will encourage people to sit together and talk. This will create a feeling of community and family.

A tropical lounge

When you think of the Caribbean, how does it make you feel? If the answer is relaxed, mindful and happy, why not introduce that vibe into your office lounge? Get some rattan chairs, create a (virgin) cocktail bar and let plenty of sunshine in. Additionally, don’t forget some big indoor plants, beach balls and nautical decor!

The great outdoors

Spending time in nature surrounded by greenery is the best way to relax and clear your head. That’s why some companies choose to turn their break rooms into eco-friendly indoor jungles. Living walls, big windows and a lot of natural materials will make people feel energized and focused, since plants are proven to relieve stress, improve concentration and generally boost human well-being. Additionally, some plants have a great ability to clean indoor air from pollutants and enrich it with oxygen, which is also amazing for people’s mental and physical health. Go, green!

So, remember that rest is just as important as work. These office lounge and break room designs will certainly boost morale and even improve your workers’ performance.
