Kornelija Lysette. Office. April 15th , 2017.
Most employees around the world, especially in the UK and the US spend approximately 90% of their working hours indoors. Out of them many are at a computer desk away from any window. A general perception is that lack of natural light can have a negative impact on the mood and productivity of an employee, thus both the employer and its employees would benefit greatly from exposure to natural light. The working styles in the corporate world have changed. Modernization is creeping through and having an impact on office interior designs. These days, office designs have surpassed the conventional workspace. Gone are the days when cubicles used to be all over the office, as modern layouts and some new concepts are replacing them. The workstations are now in an open space allowing more employee interaction. Today, an environment is being created with the office designs that promotes efficiency, spurs creativity and builds teamwork amongst the employees.
If your lease is coming to an end, or you have a break coming up you may be thinking about moving offices. As you consider whether you need bigger or more modern offices, why not also think about whether your existing space would work better for you if it was completely refurbished? Often despite having offices fitted out on occupation, as companies grow the space is filled up in a rather ad-hoc manner. This results in potentially untidy and inefficient use of the work areas, which can give the false impression that more space is required. Office refurbishment is a popular solution to space management, particularly in London where property rents remain high.
Office designers have noticed that societies environmental consciousness has transferred into our offices in a number of ways. Owners and managers know that energy costs are rising so there is a need to look for alternative energy sources. They have also seen an increase in the purchase and use of recycled furniture, which is a cheaper and more environmentally friendly way of furnishing their office.
Say goodbye to your private office (unless you're the boss, of course) because open plan offices are becoming increasingly popular. Companies are trying to make the best use of space possible, and office designers have found that giving everyone their own private area is just not the way to do this. An open plan office design also makes it possible for more employees to fit into the space, allowing for expansion.
