Creating a workspace for everyone
In today’s modern workplace, the physical working environment is recognised as a factor in helping to reduce workplace stress and a key contributor to a positive culture, as employees that like their surroundings feel happier, more engaged and more productive. So it makes sense that office interior design should consider more than just aesthetically pleasing components and focus on creating a workspace that actually increases wellbeing and encourages productivity.
Here we take a look at some of the key considerations when planning your organisation’s working environment and why your windows should play a big part.
A positive and inspiring office space
A workplace study showed that people working in environments with natural features reported 15% higher levels of wellbeing than those who did not, as well as increased levels of productivity and creativity. Feeling happy and inspired at work is integral to developing better relationships and collaboration, so introduce natural aspects and enjoy the positive effects!
Clement steel screens can create beautiful, inspiring spaces that are simply flooded with light. Consider introducing touches of greenery or add water features and benches made from natural materials to offer a tranquil area to unwind, meet or just sit and wait.
Different ways of working
Despite modern offices shifting towards open plan layouts only really within the last 15-20 years, today it is becoming more widely recognised and accepted that not everyone works in the same way and different working environments stimulate different types of people.
It all comes down to providing your colleagues with choice and variety in how they work, from individual desk spaces and group areas to a variety of meeting places, social zones, breakout spaces and other rooms that can be set up for a diverse range of meetings and presentations.
Internal steel screens are excellent for creating separate spaces that can also seem interconnected, maximising natural light and providing a striking appearance.
Natural light as the focus of interior design
Studies show that the benefits of decent amounts of natural light are far-reaching – exposure to plenty of natural light actually helps us to get a better night’s sleep and sleeping better contributes to improved overall health, happiness and productivity.
Floor to ceiling windows are the perfect way to maximise the amount of natural light flooding into your workplace. Choose from slim frames that provide greater glazed areas and elegant steel to add a modern industrial look. Whatever you choose, the results will speak for themselves.
