Design goes beyond the physical look of something. Aside from the reason behind the said design, it inspires the people that see it.

In an office environment, it’s important to keep your senses guessing. Since work can be quite stressful, you should find your own little ways to make your brain cells relax.

According to a study by the University of Massachusetts, 64% of the businesses they surveyed said that art in the workplace increases their creativity and productivity.

Here are some modern office design trends that will inspire your employees to keep on grinding:

1.     Create space for collaboration

As they say, two heads are better than one. If one task can be done by a team collaborating, then you’re sure it’s the best there is.

Provide spaces in your office where people can have small groups and talk about a specific task. You’ll see that their productivity will increase.

The feeling of exchanging ideas with other people is an activity that exercises the mind.

2.     Keep it functional 

Design your office in a way that it doesn’t obstruct the basic office functions. Make sure that not too big furniture barge in from people’s personal spaces.

Also, putting a design item that serves another purpose allows you to hit two birds with one stone.

3.     Spice it up with décor

It’s not a sin to put office decors around your area. By simply putting plants and wall paintings, you’re already making the office space much more interesting.

In line with that, the mind can take a break from looking at a screen for hours.

4.     Maintain good air quality

People are very sensitive when it comes to smell. It distracts attention even the most mundane scent.

Office design is not just what the eyes can appreciate; sometimes, it’s also the smell.

5.     Give way to natural light

While it’s great to have artificial light inside your office, having natural light also has other benefits. Surely, employees will appreciate the natural light because it spreads positivity and in general, inspires their productivity.

However, if there’s no way to set up a window in your office, you can just set up the lights in your office in the way that it boosts energy.

If you’re looking to improve your workplace, then remember these office design trends. After some time, you’ll see that office productivity go off the roof.
