Workspace Design Matters: Creativity, Productivity and Wellbeing

Workspace Design Matters: Creativity, Productivity and Wellbeing

Workplace design has a profound impact on business activities, worker’s productivity, and motivation across the board. An increasing number of business owners are starting to recognize this reality and invest big money in the premises. Alas, many employees are still stuck in traditional cubicles and have to cope with a ton of stress and distractions. Hence, it comes as a no surprise that some people are seeking to escape this tedious loop, and are retreating to their home shelters. 

Achieve healthy work-life balance

Achieve healthy work-life balance

We spend a great portion of the day at an office. Our brains respond to a wide array of stimuli, even when we are not aware of that. One thing you do notice, however, is how you feel in a certain environment. Corporate offices are among the most dreaded places and this is not just due to pushy bosses and prying colleagues. 

It is the workspace itself that affects how you feel. On the other hand, home offices are an integral part of our domestic environment, and they allow us to achieve a better work-life balance. Still, it is a good idea to invest time, money, and energy in pulling together a stimulating, well-designed work area. 

Productivity and color connection

A home setting gives you greater control over your workspace, and this amazing opportunity should not be missed. The design choices matter in terms of task performance, satisfaction, motivation, and error rate. Take the example of the colors. Studies have found that exposure to green and blue tones boosts the creative process, while red tends to aid in tasks that call for attention to detail.

These colors are often used in a combination to bring all-around benefits, but the trick is not to go overboard by creating a distracting visual cacophony. Apart from that, feel free to pick your favorite shades and make the office reflect your fine taste. 

Shapes that boost creativity

Another element that plays an important role is shape. It has been proven that round shapes spur creativity, which is often one quality you find lacking. Some companies even take advantage of curved seating formation to cultivate dynamic collective thinking. What is more, the majority of workers find shapely spaces more appealing than linear ones. 

The good news is that you are the boss in your home office, and can set aside the sterile, strict look that so many enterprises feature. Instead, go for a more relaxed feel.  Sleek offices with clean lines and minimalist solutions are all the rage, but do not shy away from unleashing your inner designer. 

Eco-friendly lighting for efficiency

Eco-friendly lighting for efficiency

All kinds of workers require ample lighting to achieve not only comfort, but also productivity, focus and health. However, if your goal is to create a workplace that’s well-lit but also sustainable, opt for LEDs which are durable, pleasant to the eye energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly. Additionally, their illuminating power makes them perfect for all sorts of lighting needs, so even gyms, swimming pools, sport and recreational centers are turning to professional sports floodlighting solutions in order to ensure maximum safety, productivity, and well-being. Whatever you’re doing, LED lighting solutions will provide you with maximum comfort and efficiency.

Health-centric design

The benefits of natural lighting and fresh air are among the most studied ones. A well-lit ambience enables us to avoid fatigue, eye strain, and plummeting energy levels. It boosts task-completion times and lifts the mood. Large windows are a treat as they let a substantial amount of natural blessings pour inside, just do not undermine this with thick curtains. 

Moreover, many people decide to purchase high-grade air purifiers to prevent mold, allergies, pet dander, asthma and other problems.  Also, strive to maintain optimal indoor temperature and find the middle ground between cold and warm. The best way to pull this off is with the help of a programmable thermostat. 

Improved storage

Improved storage

One thing you need to banish from your office is clutter. It is a menace which plagues our concentration and focus. Namely, the mess from the environment quickly spills over into our mind and puts us off the tracks. Your best ally in this effort is ample storage space. Think in terms of built-in solutions, wall shelves, DIY storage, etc.  

Finally, make room for quality ergonomic furniture as it safeguards your health and well-being and lets you customize the core work area according to your specific needs. People these days say that sitting is the new smoking, so check out amazing standing desks and other innovative solutions. 

Comfort of home

More and more people are working from the comfort of their homes, and this trend shows no signs of slowing down. After all, this is linked to advantages such as being your own boss, enjoying prime flexibility, and steering away from mountains of stress. Still, a home office impacts how you feel about your job, and your day-to-day performance. So, give workplace design the attention it deserves and you should be able to develop your full potential and climb the career ladder from the comfort of your home office.
