While office decoration doesn’t age as quickly as home decoration can, the fact that many people are coming in and out of an office space does mean that the decor can get tired and worn looking fast. If you want to update your office space, but don’t have a lot of time or a huge budget, we have a few suggestions for you.
- Window Coverings
Depending on your office, you may have a lot of windows that need covering. An easy way to freshen your space is to include modern-looking designs, like roller blinds Somerville, in interesting fabrics and finishes. Make sure that whatever you choose is easy to lift and lower as they will get a lot of use.
- Gentler Lighting
Offices, especially those that don’t get a lot of natural light, often rely on harsh overhead lights with fluorescent bulbs. Many people get eye strain and headaches from bright lights. This can affect productivity and morale. Make your office a more welcoming space by installing different types of lights with different wattages. Make sure to use energy-efficient bulbs to save electricity
- Flexible Workspace
The more we learn about how people work, the more we know that sitting at a desk in a cubicle is not the right work environment for everybody. Give your employees flexible workspaces, with different seating options and places to do group work. Don’t completely abandon the cubicles, though. Open floor plans don’t work for everyone. This doesn’t have to be a budget buster. Put in a large table and some comfy chairs for your employees to use.
Workers spend most of their waking hours at work. They should be able to have a workplace that’s attractive and welcoming. If you are looking for an easy way to improve office morale, any of these options may be able to help with that.
