How can the Beats Interior Design Improve Your Office Interior Design?

Thursday, May 29th, 2014

 Interior Design Advice You can Learn from Beats

Just this week Apple bought Beats, an electronic and technology company, for $ 3 billion dollars. Originally it was reported that Apple would buy Beats from rapper turned entrepreneur Dr. Dre for $3.2 billion. Beats is the biggest acquisition thus far by Apple, but that’s not the impressive news.

What inspired Apple to buy Beats?

You might be surprised, but the office environment played a major role in closing the Beats deal. The interior design and layout of the Beats office is very impressive because it encourages work collaboration. In other words, the layout helps build up teamwork. Beats has a very open office space theme. The office environment is very fluid and flexible to help employees get creativity while staying while connected with co-workers. When business teams stay connected, they can truly help a business thrive because workers can work independently while being well prepared to collaborate at any time. Remember, a healthy work environment gives workers the opportunity to help each other while working effectively as individuals.

Even conference rooms at Beats are open office spaces. For example, the Beats conference rooms have glass walls for utmost transparency, while bringing in plenty of natural light.

The best work environments offer comfortable seating. You can get the best comfort for your money by purchasing ergonomic chairs and ergonomic furniture. It’s better to collaborate in-person than via a digital platform because people prefer personal experiences over impersonal experiences.

Integration. Creativity. Collective. All three are important in an office environment. American Design Associates can handle your office interior design while consulting you on the best office furniture for your specific work environment.

Modern Office Environment: How to Attract and Keep Millennials

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Millenial Furniture and Interior Design

Are you in desperate need of a modern office design? Then it’s time to throw out the cubicle and embrace open office space designs.

As more Millennials enter the workforce, open office and co-work spaces are in demand than ever before. Young workers understand that they will spend the majority of their work experience in an office environment, but that doesn’t mean they will accept a conventional office environment. In fact, they are more interested in working for companies that try to make the office environment as comfortable and fun as possible.

If you want to attract young talent, you need to have a lively office design. Yes, that means getting rid of old filing cabinets and ancient work stations. Yes, that means upgrading traditional office chairs to ergonomic chairs.

To put it short, you can keep your workforce satisfied with your office environment by offering them variety in work situations and more importantly give them plenty of workers’ freedom.

Modern employees want to work in office environments that apply liberating designs. They do not want to be cooped up in cubicles. They want their work stations to be moderately individualized, while still giving them the opportunity to use furniture designed with work collaboration in mind.

A popular trend in office furniture is offering both sitting and standing desks for workers. This will assure them you are looking out for not only their healthy well being but also promoting them to get creative with their work. The worse thing you could do for your workers is cram them together like sardines.

If you don’t know what your workers want out of an office environment setting, hand out surveys. Ask for honest feedback. If you don’t have happy workers, you don’t have a thriving company.

American Design Associates is here to Millennial proof your office environment. We know your business cannot excel if it cannot attract and retain young talent, intellectual workers. As your interior designer, we will provide you information on the best modern furniture to use in the office. We will even outline an efficient office layout for you.

To attract millennials to your company, furnish the office with collaborative furniture. Offer high quality workstations where they can use the latest digital technology and mobile devices. The more work flexibility you can offer them, the better.

Baltimore Interior Designer

Are you taking on an apartment, home or office interior design project this summer? There are ways to create the look and feel you desire, without burning a hole in your wallet. We are here to tell you how.

When occupying a new space, emotions can run high. Moving in general is very stressful and once you are occupying a space, you do not only want it to look good, but you also will want the space to user friendly.

You’ll want to get the essentials out of the way such as purchasing quality furniture. Before you can get to that, you need to hire a professional interior designer to identify the best space layout for your interior design.

Here are ways a reputable professional interior designer, like American Design Associates, can help you create a beautiful and highly functional interior design:

  1. Use removal wallpaper for the design of your room. By using removable wallpaper, you can get creative with the color and style of your new space. In fact, you can change the look and feel easily when you grow bored with color and style of the room. In fact, it may be more affordable to use removable wallpaper than paint.
  2. Buy large mirrors to create the illusion that a small room is larger. Where should you position mirrors to create the illusion that the room is larger? Let the mirrors reflect windows to add more dimension to your room.
  3. Use old furniture and give it a fresh look with fresh coast of paint. Not only do can you save money on buying furniture by painting traditional furniture, but you can also give your room a modern look, while showing your appreciation for classic furniture items.
  4. When buying new furniture, do you best to conceal storage units. People are more likely to  to use a room and feel comfortable in a room when the room is decluttered. You can store magazine, folders, business portfolios in office desks and storage ottomans.

Add some unique artwork and you’ll create a room people can truly admire and easily use. Don’t forget to add some plants to your space. Not only are plants beautiful, but they can also improve indoor air quality.
