Here are some low-cost interior design hacks you can use to make sure you get the best office fitout that improves your design and staff productivity:
- Declutter your Working Space
Can you imagine working in a cluttered space? Wouldn’t the clutter be nothing but a distraction while working? All offices have typical clutter that is hard to avoid. Offices are busy places, full of people who have a million tasks to complete at one time. Hence, the first thing you should do when planning your office renovation is to think of ways to manage office clutter.
The key to achieving this is finding the right solutions to organise your office clutter. It can be as simple as adding some simple shelves, cabinets, bookcases, or other storage options that would work well in the space and satisfy both your design and working needs.
- Use Colour Psychology
Namely, colour, colour combinations, and hues can have an enormous impact on how people feel and act. So, it is quite logical to conclude that colour can play an important role in the success of your business and staff efficiency.
Yet, when speaking about work, it really depends on the type of work your business does. For example, the same colours would have a different impact on people working in creative industries and those who deal with clients private matters. So, choose your next office fitout colours wisely!
- Modify your Office Lighting
Without a shadow of a doubt, fluorescent lighting is definitely the worst even though is probably the most used lighting choice when it comes to office interior designs. And, it comes with some annoying side effects like terrible headaches, eye strain, reduced energy and efficiency. Thus, you’d better make sure that your next office renovation doesn’t include any fluorescent globes on the ceilings.
Alternatively, you can try using natural light as much as space and layout allow you. Or, try repositioning workstations so that they are turned toward windows, replacing office walls with alternative partitions, preferably glass partitions, and switching from fluorescent lights to LEDs.
- Include Some Greenery
Last but not least, including plants in your office fitout is a very low-cost, yet effective interior design hack to improve the workplace environment. Plus, there are also some other benefits plants offer like reduced pollutants, increased oxygen, and reduced dust, which highly contribute to staff’s health enabling cleaner and fresher air.
Hence, the staff will experience a rather calming effect that will positively affect work productivity and efficiency. So, feel free to add as much greenery as you want!
