2. Keep It Clean

An untidy workspace is distracting and a time-suck. It decreases productivity and gives a bad impression to clients. Clear the clutter to create a professional impression on customers and staff. Everything should have its place. A number one problem in keeping the office tidy is not enough storage or not the right storage. Our office planners can help you find exactly what you need to create a place for everything to be put away where it is close to hand or neatly organized within your working spaces.

3. Be Mindful of Lighting

Garish fluorescent lighting is known to suck the energy out of even the most vibrant worker, and it can certainly dampen the mood for visitors. Opt for softer lighting that will still provide ample brightness. Ambient overhead lighting can be complemented by decorative pendants and personal lighting, creating a light, warm and inviting space.

4. Brighten The Space With Color

We tend to underestimate the importance of colour in the workspace. Incorporating bright colours can make your office space feel more inviting. Colour palettes can be chosen to affect mood, productivity and creativity. Our designers will be able to help you chose the right colours and tones dependant on the function of the space you are designing and the mood or mindset you wish to create.

5. Incorporate Conversational Features

Give visitors a lasting impression of exactly what your company is about with branding messages and quirky touches. Unusual seating or a touch of elegance here and there will make your company stand out and not be forgotten . If your workplace looks like everyone else’s in your industry then you won’t be considered any differently.
