When redesigning or designing your office space, there are a lot of important factors to consider. How open do you want it to be? What kind of space do you want your employees interacting in? These are just a few of the questions you may be asking yourself as you start to plan redesigning your office. Here’s a few tips we’ve found helpful for redesigning your office:
- Use as much light & space as possible – Open spaces lend themselves well to productivity, as cubicles can make some employees and workers feel confined. Open spaces also let more natural light enter the office. Natural light in general leads to increases in productivity. An open space with plenty of natural light will remove the walls that keep you from that elusive boost in productivity that you’ve always wanted.
- Make a few break away spaces – Break away spaces are spaces that are separate from your employees’ desks can aid productivity as well. These spaces can be used for informal chats, lunches and brainstorming sessions. Some of the greatest ideas can come from having an informal break away space where employees can throw ideas around.
- Invest in your office furniture – Cheap office furniture can cause a multitude of problems for employees such as back pain, neck pain and other ailments that effect worker productivity. It’s possible to refurbish, recycle and repurpose your existing office furniture so you don’t have to invest money in new office furniture.
