Affects of Office Interior Design on Employee Productivity

By on February 1st, 2019

Start-up companies take up a lot of time, hard work, and effort. In order to ensure the success of your company it’s not only important to have driven colleagues, but also a work environment that will continue to be an asset to the culture and mission of the company. Having done some broad research, we’ve listed a few pros/cons for office interior designs that can help boost employee productivity.

Open or Closed Space?

Do you prefer to work in an open space or closed off space? Office interiors that are open and less restricted tend to have greater outcome in terms of success rate and high productivity from employees. On the other hand, offices that are closed off, with each person in their own cubicle tends to increase a higher risk of gossip which leads to unhappy relationships amongst certain workers. With lots of cozy furniture and spacious areas to relax while working, the office feels like a second home. Swivel chairs and a wide table full of dedicated workers become a haven of completion and comfort. It opens up the opportunity to connect with staff and get work done efficiently.

Without Food It’s Not Home

You would think it’s almost impossible for every corporate office interior design to have a basic kitchen and solitary tables, but startups have decided it is time for a change! The new chain of startups want to go big by adding an actual kitchen with large sinks, stove tops, extravagant tables, and most importantly a bar for those moments that call for a celebration! As we all know, the kitchen is the home of any building, and with the right design, supplies, and style it is bound to be one of the main highlights for your office. This approach attracts happy customers who get to sign a contract with a glass of wine in their hand, and happy workers who get to eat at home while working on the clock.

Color With Fun

Color sets the mood for any location and adds life to everyone’s world. All whites, bland grays or dark blacks can make the office seem gloomy, and in order to make the space come alive, bright office colors create a happy feeling and prove to be non-stressful. Bright yellows, greens, urban woods, and other accentuating colors can really up-lift an employees mood and has sometimes proven to have a positive impact on vendors who sign or work with a start-up company. When it comes to color you’re bound to have fun because there are so many colorful items that can be utilized in an office space. For example, bean bag chairs to match the walls, ping pong tables that compliment the serious tone of the office, or even colorful fixtures. Now one thing to watch out for is loud colors that don’t coincide with the company’s culture. For example, a law firm should stick to cedar woods and glass framed doors while a bike shop or computer company should liven it up and play around with fun colors to help boost sales employee performance.
