Description

Just 10 or 20 years back, no one really thought about office design and how it affects productivity and work satisfaction. The important thing was that the building is safe, that every worker has their own desk and that they all do their jobs. However, today, we understand the importance of offices and just how much they matter for the company. This means that every year there are new office design trends, new tech improvements, new design techniques to boost productivity and new motivation stories from modern offices. So, if you want to improve your office design, here are some of the best innovations in the field.

Flexibility

One of the quickest growing trends in office design is the absence of permanent layouts. This allows for extra flexibility that every modern workspace needs and it promotes communication, cooperation and easier problem-solving. Today, it’s all about modular components that can be quickly and easily mixed, moved and stacked offering many different workspace layouts, depending on the project at hand.

Biophilia

We all know that nature is good for physical and mental health, but just how much really? Well, according to one research, adding greenery to the office improves workers’ mental and physical health and raises general work satisfaction. Plants not only add a relaxing pop of color to the space, but also help create an optimal indoor air quality level and enrich the office with oxygen. So, think living walls or dividers, plenty of potted plants and even green roofs!

Minimalism

Minimalism is going strong in every area of interior design, offices included. This is all due to the fact that minimalism has a very smooth and uncluttered look that boosts focus and productivity and helps relieve stress. That`s why many workplaces have additional libraries with a selection of useful and interesting titles employees could read in between tasks, like top 10 finance books and similar. Additionally, it has a very contemporary vibe many businesses want to provide to their workers and visitors. Think clean lines, no clutter, minimalist branding, and plenty of closed storage space. There’s also amazingly modern and ergonomic furniture that fits into this futuristic notion of minimalism. Think a practical electric adjustable desk combined with a high-tech ergonomic chair and a footrest. This very minimalist and modern desk allows your workers to work both standing up and sitting down (depending on their preference and health requirements) and rest their legs when needed. A setup like this will keep workers healthy and rested while staying true to the minimalist look!

Fun break rooms

Once upon a time, break rooms were reserved for quick cups of coffee and chatting with your coworkers until the microwave is done. However, today, break rooms are taken to a whole new level with fun games and activities, cozy furniture for relaxing and quick naps and plenty of spaces that encourage communication and friendship. One amazing idea is creating a music room where employees can jam out and let off some steam. Plus, creating and learning new music boosts creativity, improves concentration and adds to the office culture (as long as it’s well sound-proofed)!

Baby and pet-sitting

New mothers and fathers have to go back to work as soon as their baby allows, but oftentimes, this is way too soon. So, some companies include a babysitting area where employees can bring their child and leave it in great hands while they deal with their careers. This allows parents to visit their kid and stay stress-free and focused knowing their child is having fun. The same goes for pets! Some offices want everyone to be able to be a pet parent, so they decided to make their offices very pet-friendly! There are pets next to workstations, pet play areas and outdoor areas for potty breaks. Plus, it’s scientifically proven that petting animals relieves stress and promotes collaboration.

New and creative office designs can inspire workers, provide them with the right tools to succeed and give them plenty of time to relax and relieve stress. And happy and healthy workers usually equal productive workers, so you do the math!
