The summer months can shed a light of positivity throughout your office. Although, if your office is looking a bit outdated, it can dramatically hinder your employees’ productivity; particularly if your office space doesn’t provide enough natural light. This week, Markwell Peck are here to share four summer office refurbishment trends that will brighten up your space.
Bright and bold
There is no better time to get out a paintbrush and start painting than summer. If your building either lacks natural light or pops of colour, then why not bring summer colours indoors? Bright colours like orange and yellow not only opens up the room, but it has also been proven to uplift your employee’s moods; making them more productive.
If you are trying to bring summer indoors when undergoing your office refurbishment; invest in some house plants and succulents. Not only do they look aesthetically pleasing but they also help with oxygen production which will positively benefit your employees. However, if you are not a fan of bringing in real plants, then you can invest in plastic ones which still add decorative value.
If you are undergoing an office refurbishment, then you should consider your company branding. You may decide to paint your office in your company colours. Or have a feature wall with your logo on it. Keeping your interior consistent with your brand message can help communicate to potential clients your dedication when carrying out a job. Not only that, but it will also remind your employees about the company’s brand values and work ethic.
Introduce a non-conventional zone
Summer can be very hot which means your employees will not be too keen on staying in the same area all day. You could introduce a non-conventional workspace that is not assigned to any particular employee. This gives your staff the freedom to go and work elsewhere if needed. It has been proven that unconventional workspaces can encourage productivity and creativity.
