We all know how the office life can be – long hours, harsh lighting, uncomfortable and dysfunctional desk space. It is something that every office tries to avoid; however, many offices and business seem to fail at this. The reason for this being can be many things, budget, aesthetics, or not enough resources. At Office Furniture Direct, we are here to help smash the notion that offices are drab.
Most, if not all, businesses are based out of offices and while teamwork and being social has its benefits for productivity, the décor may play a part in the downgrade of productivity. That is why it is best to create the best possible space you can for higher productivity within the work space. There are various ways you can do this from choosing the right furniture, maybe standing desks instead of traditional desk, to making the best out of your small space with cubicles or multi-person desks. The possibilities are endless with office furniture; sometimes it is all about trial and error to see what works best for your environment and employees.
In addition to office furniture playing a roll, there should also be the consideration of décor influences. Factors such as light, color, and art work all help or decrease productivity. Designs with bright colors might work in a startup tech office however; those same colors might have a negative effect in an office where research and writing are involved. Before you decorate do your research on color theory to find the best option for you and your team!
