When it comes to design, sometimes the workplace is the last thought. However, if you think about it, the majority of your day is often spent in the workplace, making it a vital place in your life. The atmosphere and look of a workplace are crucial to how employees feel and behave. We want to inspire workers and boost productivity. Design can also help your workplace stand out. If your workplace is in need of a freshen-up this season continue reading for some design ideas to make your workplace more productive.

Minimalist Workplace

The minimalist look has been on the rise in all types of spaces, but especially workplaces. The minimalist design focuses on one strict color palette with colors popping through decor. Decor is also kept to a very minimum to keep a clean look. Less is more when it comes to a minimalist workplace.

Neutral colors are also a big plus. This keeps it easy on the eye and also very clean and natural. Decor such as plants and abstract art pieces are a huge plus and tie the theme and design together.

Clean and Bright

Who wants to work in a place that is dark, boring, and uninspiring? The answer is nobody. A clean and bright space can increase productivity and allow workers to think more open-mindedly. For the focus of this design, we really want to accentuate a bright color on the wall, such as white or another bright neutral.

Another crucial part of this is natural light. We recommend using as much natural light as possible through windows. If windows are unavailable, choose a light fixture that is neat, clean, and brings sufficient light to the space.

Pops of Color

Who doesn’t love a pop of color? Color inspires creativity and boosts the mood of those around us. If your workplace is seeming a little dull this is the perfect way to spice it up. Pick a color and stick to it. This is a great way to use your company’s specific brand color throughout your workplace.

For this design, you’ll want to keep a neutral base around the room when it comes to walls and furniture. From there pick a color and use it around the room in things such as pillows, art pieces, rugs, and light fixtures. Pops of color can be fun and inspire productivity, but be careful not to overdo them.

Neat and Collaborative

Working with others is a crucial part of most workplaces. There is nothing worse than being stuck in a cubicle with only a small desk and chair. This design focuses on a collaborative environment to inspire productivity and positivity in the workplace.

The biggest thing when creating a collaborative workspace is to give people enough space to work individually but also be able to engage with others. We recommend the use of long tables, circular tables, and also collaborative desks. This encourages teamwork and conversation among workers. With a collaborative environment, we also want to keep it neat and clean to make sure nobody gets distracted by color.
