We currently live in a digitized aesthetic world; where every space must match your company’s brand—from the furniture to the paint on the walls. Why is this important you may ask? Well, for starters consistent branding helps boost employee morale, while also demonstrating to clients that your business is keeping up with the fast-moving world around us.
Here are some trends we expect to see in office spaces in 2022:
Since so many have been working from home for over a year now, employees have established a new expectation of comfort while working that they may not have enjoyed previously in the office. To keep your employees as motivated as they were at home, it is imperative to establish a renewed level of comfort to ensure continued productivity.
Ways to encourage this may include separate spaces in which to take breaks, with comfortable furniture and designated quiet zones. Giving employees a place to decompress can not only grant a higher level of comfort, but can also provide motivation and boost morale in the office.
As we’ve all heard in podcasts and seen in team building exercises, circles are the shape for collaborative work. Implementing more circular elements in the office can improve communication and increase employee participation during meetings.
Not only can implementing circular elements boost morale, it also improves your office aesthetic—showing off a compact, purposeful, and modernized office.
While working from home, employees have gotten used their own environments which don’t include the typical office distractions. Sound proofing is imperative for increasing focus and concentration, especially when it comes to meetings. Creating a sound-proofed space can also encourage employees to maximize their production by eliminating office distractions like ringing phones, deliveries, and other conversations.
To implement this, you can incorporate soundproofing panels in your meeting spaces or around desks to absorb outside noise. We can provide an abundance of different sound proofing designs, allowing for virtually endless design opportunities!
The color green invokes calm and relaxation, while also increasing productivity. Implementing plants in the office is one of the newest and healthiest trends promoting air purification and ventilation. Not only does this improve the health of the office, but including accents of green has been proven to boost employee morale and productivity.
We know that every office space requires different needs as trends and work environments change, which is why we’re here to help! Contact our expert designers today to see how we can help your office keep up with trends in 2022 and beyond.
