Here are some of the current trends you can use to maximize the value of your furniture and see lasting improvements in how you get work done.
4 Ways to Maximize Your Furniture to Achieve a Better Modern Workspace Design
Design 1: Polished & Intelligent
A sleek, composed, and refined office look can reflect in your work. If your office welcomes clients frequently, eye-catching tables, desks, and chairs can be the perfect additions to set the tone for your company. Solid wood desks, sophisticated bookcases, or elegant credenzas are suitable for both corporate and home offices and can elevate your office look to the next level. Not every piece of furniture needs to stand out, but rather a few statement pieces can make a big impact on the overall aesthetic.
Design 2: Productive & Focused Meetings
Space design matters during any meeting. You can maximize your office furniture for meetings by setting it up in a way that is congruent with the meeting goals. Will there be presentations? Are you planning for a large group? Will there be a catered lunch? These factors are important to consider when setting up meeting space. It’s best to have the meeting room set up so that each voice can be heard and the presentation can be seen from all available seats.
Design 3: Healthy & Considerate
If your company is transitioning back to in-office work after being remote for months/years, there are important modifications to consider for the space. While mask mandates are consistently changing across the country, the CDC recommends companies modify seats, furniture, and/or workstations to maintain social distancing of six feet between employees. The organization also recommends installing transparent shields or other physical barriers where possible to separate employees and visitors when social distancing is not possible.
Design 4: Adaptable & Modern
Did your company adopt a hybrid working model during the pandemic? If so, you may have different employees coming into the office on different days. As such, you may want to consider adding hot desks to your office.
A hot desk is a single workstation that multiple employees can use throughout the day. Businesses are turning to hot desks because of the many ways that they can save you both space and money, as well as the positive effects on team communication. This flexible solution works great with open office designs and can be just what your workspace needs for employees that are always on the go. This tactic maximizes space efficiency and reduces redundant office space, so it is worthwhile to consider this adaptable trend.
