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.
There are numerous factors that come into play when considering good office design: lighting temperature color noise levels furniture space layout among others. Here are a few key considerations.

Planning an office space layout is not unlike urban planning in that people need both public and private spaces to function adequately and productively. By applying the urban planning model to office space design the ideal office layout should have both private and public meeting spaces private office and more public ones(cubicles) and various passageways to allow for easy traffic flow such as hallways and corridors.

As mobile technology improves as home working becomes more viable with bandwidth increases and as part-time working becomes more widespread so the need for one desk per person diminishes. Increasingly modern office design is moving towards a ratio of 7 or 8 desks for every 10 staff. The next question is then about saving money by reducing the overall office space rental or to perhaps give some of the space over to social and team purposes? One of the leading adopters of modern office design incorporating flexible working and shared desk allocation CISCO Systems works on a ratio of 160 sq ft per person. Clearly they havent used unallocated desks and mobile working as a cost-cutting measure.
