Workspace plays an important role in the successful development and growth of any business. When it comes to designing or refitting your office, you need to create layout solutions that can adapt and transform easily to meet the changing needs of the business and future-proof your office.
Over the last few years, design trends have been about flexible, open and collaborative spaces. Designers claim that these multi-use offices led to better communication and diminish hierarchy within the office. The problem with this type of layout is that not enough thought has gone into issues that arise with noise, creating zones, visual aesthetics and the impact on staff wellbeing.
In this article, we look at ways to use screens, partitions to design spaces that are not only functional but also have a powerful impact on employee’s productivity and business growth.
Add Colour and Texture
A study done by the University of Massachusetts found that adding colour to your office can help employees, as it reduces stress, increases creativity, enhances morale, broadens their appreciation of diversity, and encourages discussions and expressions of opinions. What the eyes can see can either have a positive or negative effect on a person’s brain activity, so adding a bit of colour and texture to your office can benefit your employees.
A simple way to add colour to your space is through the use of decorative screens or wall tiles. With many different colours, textures and designs available, these can have an effect of an office mini makeover, offering your staff something visually stimulating to look at instead of rows of desks and chairs.
Specific hues also improve certain brain functions that can help boost productivity at work, so perhaps choose screen colours based on the type of activity that is occurring each space ie yellow to enhance clarity and precision.
