  2. A compulsory light intensity depending on the nature of the work
  3. A minimum space for each employee
  4. Good air circulation
  5. Ergonomic furniture

Utilize Space Well

With the tail end of the COVID-19 pandemic affecting the way in which we work, development trends in 2021 have taken a hygienic inflection trend: keeping staff safe, and giving workers space.

Partitions can work particularly well and offer a little privacy for all workers while still maintaining a social aspect.  In terms of decoration, minimalism or retro industrial are among the current trends that can be minimal yet functional and it offers you up more space. 

An Appealing Look

When your business office style inspires, you will find your workers are hitting their target quicker and office morale improves. Choose colors that work well, such as light airy colors, whites, pale blues, greens and avoid any fussy prints. Make the area modernized, by using ergonomic chairs and tables, updating old couches and seating areas to be practical and comfy and keep the office space as light as possible.

Use your lighting well. Poorly lit rooms can contribute to lack of concentration and workers feeling sluggish and tired quicker. Use modern blinds that do not collect dust and have regular cleaning which will also keep the space looking fresh.

Utilize your business’ signature colors by adding a feature wall with these shades as well as adding the logo and relevant artwork to the walls which brings the room together. If people entering and exiting can see new work, style and branding, it instils confidence into them and also helps them remember your company better.

Shelving and proper filing systems should be well indexed and old documents that are no longer needed must be recycled.
