It’s crucial that your office reflects the ethos of your business and, when it comes to visual aesthetics, you really want your office to stand out and be unique. A workspace that has received little care or attention over the years will not only put across a poor public image, but it can also have a significant impact on your employees’ motivation. By regularly refurbishing your office, you can enhance its visual appeal and maximise your workforce’s productivity.
And, if you’re currently considering a makeover for your office, it’s vital that you know what the office refurbishment trends to look out for in 2019 are.
Hot desking is the perfect solution for any office which experiences employees coming in and out on a regular basis. A communal and flexible method of working, hot desking allows employees to quickly pitch up to any workstation and get to work. For hot desking to work, however, you have to make sure that you invest in the correct equipment. Chairs, monitor arms and laptop stands, for example, all need to be fully adjustable in order to achieve the communal experience. And modular power supplies that enable staff to get their electrical devices up and running instantly are an essential that can’t be missed.
Superior Tech Options
We live in an age where technology is an integral part of both our work and home lives, so it’s important that this is a central consideration of any office refurbishment in 2019. WiFi, for example, helps to connect countless smart devices and, as a result, the presence of reliable and state of the art WiFi facilities should be a priority. Wireless charging points, too, are assets that few offices can afford to go without due to the flexibility they provide and their ability to reduce downtime for battery powered devices.
It’s becoming increasingly important to recognise the benefits of wellbeing for your employees and a refurbishment project is perfect to help facilitate this. Recharge rooms and relaxation spaces are installations which aim to improve the mental health of your employees and reduce the fatigue caused by the various stressors that accompany office life. While these quiet spaces are fantastic for improving morale and reducing absenteeism, they’re not the only way to enhance wellbeing. A well designed kitchen, for example, with modern appliances that emphasise healthy eating can also boost your employees’ wellbeing.
Energising with Colour
The power of colour should never be underestimated in an office and, in 2019, the trend is to embrace bold colours to bring your workspace to life. If you want your office to catch the eye and generate interest then you should be focussing on bold colours such as yellow, blue and green. And, by revitalising your office in this manner, you stand to benefit in two key areas. Firstly, your staff’s motivation levels will increase due to the investment in their surroundings and, secondly, the bold, engaging aesthetics will capture the imagination of any customers visiting your office.
