There is no better time to get a paintbrush out and give your office a well-deserved lick of paint than before summer. More often than not, when the sun begins to shine, it highlights little blemishes around the room. This week, Markwell Peck are here to tell you about the most popular commercial decorating and refurbishment trends of 2018!
Commercial refurbishment has become majorly popular over the past few years with the belief that a modern physical environment will inspire employees to become more productive and channel their creativity.
Foliage and greenery
One major office refurbishment trend making waves this year is foliage and greenery. It’s been proven that having an office plant or two not only adds aesthetic value to your building. But it also helps with your employees’ productivity. A recent study revealed that when we work in green spaces; there is a 26% rise in awareness and 30% fewer absences. Having a green office amongst a busy city can help employees feel as though they’re working somewhere that feels more serene.
Unconventional is the new conventional
This is more popular in large corporations and in creative industries. However, the introduction of unconventional workspaces is on the rise. When it comes to office refurbishment, ensuring your employees have a breakout area and creative zone is vital. With technology allowing your employees to work from anywhere, why not think about creating a ‘third space’? This offers your employees more work space and a place to collaborate, letting them work how they please.
Breaking down barriers
The idea of an office refurbishment allows you to think about ways in which you can improve your office and work space. This commercial fit out trend involves the tearing down of walls and the introduction of large, open spaces and lots of non-enclosed environments. Naturally, like any commercial decorating and refurbishment project, we would recommend only hiring professional commercial decorators.
