Modern offices are drastically different from the ones we had a few generations ago. Gone are humdrum cubicles, drab wall colors, and strictly utilitarian work environments. Now you can see a lot of offices that tickle the fancies of corporate types and keep them motivated to work.
Here are some the office design trends that are expected to prevail or evolve in 2015 and in the years to come:
More companies are capitalizing on the value of teamwork in their productivity. They do this by creating an environment where employees can share ideas and work together in every daily task or major project. The open floor space movement, shared or hot desks, office nooks where chance meetings can happen for business updates – all these fuel collaboration among employees.
The innovative designs (made popular by the large tech companies like Google) either dictate the office culture or adapt the existing one. The rooms and their furnishings or layout cater to the way the company conducts business or the company’s particular vision (e.g. a homey place for employees, a laidback ambiance like those of cafes, a sophisticated corporate facility, etc.)
Colorful accents, artwork, and unique furniture designs are integrated in the office whenever possible to brighten up the space and make it more appealing. Flexible, ergonomic seats, tables, and storages are also used to complement the creative workspace and inspire employees to be productive.
