Having access to good artificial lighting or daylight is known to increase productivity. When people work under bad lighting conditions they can develop eyestrain headaches and general irritability. Particularly dark spaces can have a pronounced psychological effect and depress the brain. Employees should have access to their own lighting so that they can make the necessary lighting adjustments depending on the task they are carrying out. Well-designed artificial lighting will increase functionality however there is no comparison to natural daylight and this should be maximized wherever possible. Windows provide a connection to the outside world and should be used whenever the building design allows for it. Open plan layouts that employ low cubicle panels or glass panels can maximize the entry of natural light into the office. Skylights are also a good alternative when windows are not an option.
While you can replace all of the office furniture for a very fast remodel it can also be the most expensive option. Buying new office furniture may not even be required to create the illusion of new office design plans either. Unless your furniture is in such disrepair that it needs to be trashed you can opt to recondition it. If you dont just want the same old furniture back opt to refurbish it. Office furniture refurbishing is one technique that not only brings in a new look but also conserves precious planet resources. If youre looking to keep some of the structure of the office furniture while getting a whole new look or a workspace that serves more than one function consider remanufacturing it.
Timber sourced from sustainable forests can be used in attractive floor coverings. Recycled plastics are strong and work well in all sorts of office furniture and fittings. Additionally your office or workstations design can be complemented by using organic non-volatile paint for walls and ceilings. Unusual Options: The use of unusual materials can give design an interesting twist. Instead of choosing conventional smooth wood plastic or metallic surfaces consider using materials with more tactile appeal such as textiles in your office design to mark your office out as individual. Some offices have been known to successfully use such unconventional materials as cardboard for furniture and partitioning. Using largely ignored materials such as cardboard can be an ingenious approach to save money in redesigning an office.
Combining Materials: With the multitude of useful materials available for your office and workstations design it could be tempting to either take a very enthusiastic approach or try to use them all or get overwhelmed and stick to the simple choices. It pays however to take a considered approach to using different materials in an office design. Too many clashing materials and the office become visually crowded and messy too little and the office can seem dull. Often choosing one or two interesting materials to use throughout your office design can be very effective.
