The office of today must already take some. It is not enough simply to place tables, chairs and computers in a gray, dreary room. Even if it does not have to look like here in the picture in the office of Google: The optimal office space increases in any case the productivity. Google Docks Office, Dublin, Ireland

Why a beautiful office is important

A good corporate space should reflect the philosophy and character of a company. This not only ensures that employees feel more comfortable here, but also gives applicants a more positive, first impression of the company.

The results definitely make up for the cost of the purchase: a little color on the wall, a corner of the pause and some plants can work miracles. An office with a good, fresh design helps to reduce stress at the same time, increase productivity, promote creativity and improve the company image.

Inspiration for the walls

The office can be subdivided into various areas by differentiating the walls from one another in color. Which colors fit well, one can look at Beautiful living discover. For example, walls, in which the cozy corner of the quiet should be decorated, should be painted in a blue or yellow shade, and you can add a wall picture. For conference and meeting areas you should consider strong, bright colors that encourage creativity.

However, at least one wall should be held in a more neutral tone, otherwise the design can quickly overload. As an alternative to color-colored walls, you can also decorate a wall with canvases and pictures. If you are interested in industrial design, wood paneling is interesting.

These can be both light and dark and you can cut the boards to create a work of art together with the wall. You can also reserve a wall for plants. Beautiful office plants can be found online, for example room flowers to order. A little green in the office promotes creativity and gives a company a greener image.

The right furniture

It is best to put the less expensive furniture in the break area. New and second-hand furniture such as sofas, armchairs, hammocks, coffee tables and carpets are perfect in the break area - they have character and are not overly expensive. A good alternative is here, for example Used Office and also on flea markets you will certainly find something.

In the chairs and tables at the main workplace of the staff, one should be willing to pay a little more to spare their backs. Staples has here a selection of ergonomic chairs. In the meeting area, the seating areas should also be comfortable and in sufficient numbers. If the walls are somewhat monotonous, you can add a little color with a colorful sofa or table.


Of course, a good office needs to be adequately lit. But in addition to the main lighting in the room you should also think of other areas of the office. Table lamps and the lighting in the break areas should not be neglected. It does not always have to be neon lamps.

Here you can get creative. Floor lamps, industrial lamps or maybe even lava lamps can spread their own charm. But above all, enough daylight should fall into the office. With the right light, you can not only save energy, but also boost employee productivity. According to Researchers from the University of Surrey have found out that blue-enriched light stimulates light.
