When is the last time you’ve made changes to your office? Some paint and some new interior design could make a world of difference, improving life for your workforce, and boosting productivity along the way. Hiring a commercial interior painting crew, or full renovation specialist can have a dramatic effect on how work is conducted in your building.
There’s no end to the possible alterations you could make to an existing office space. Here are a few of the ideas the team from C.E.T. Painting recommends.
5 Improvements That Can Boost Productivity in Any Office
1 – Better use of color
Drab white or grey walls don’t do much to raise employee productivity. On the other hand, a great new paint job can! Color psychology is a real phenomenon, and different vibrant colors can inspire different feelings in workers. High wavelength colors (reds and yellows) tend to inspire high energy, while low wavelengths (blues and purples) tend to calm people down. Or, green is a great all-around mood stabilizer.
Bright paints can also help make a room feel brighter, or even make it feel roomier, even if the layout doesn’t change. A commercial interior painting specialist could do a lot of good here.
2 – Whiteboard rooms
This is a trend we’ve started to see, and we love. A room set aside, amongst the offices and cubicles, which is simply covered in whiteboard material. It’s a perfect space for pitching new ideas, working through challenges, and generally encouraging creative problem-solving among workers. Consider adding standing desks or a sound system to allow employees to listen to music as additional tools to reduce stress during work days.
3 – More natural light
Want to make your workers perk up? Add more light. Simply installing extra windows or skylights can make a huge difference to workers’ moods. Better yet, with modern triple-pane insulated glass, you can do this without adding significantly to your air conditioning costs!
4 – More greenery
Another good option is adding plants, or even water features if you’re feeling ambitious. Having living things in an office will help improve workers’ moods, plus the plants will act as natural purifiers. Air quality is improved for team members since plants provide fresh oxygen.
5 – Modular dividers
Who says your office must have a single set layout? Using easily moved dividers and other modular pieces allow your common work areas to be reconfigured on the fly. Workers can create the space that best suits them from day-to-day. Studies show that simple configuration changes increase productivity and could save money.
