There are many ways we can make our office décor modern, advanced and yet have a stylish and a simple look. It can be bringing in that new artificial plant, an artistic decorative piece, an oriental style carpet, or a red comfy chair. A contemporary office will create increased productivity, better morale, low absenteeism, higher creative thinking, stimulate minds and so on.

Office workspaces should be flexible to provide a variety of spaces and destinations for its employees-

Hide the wires - De-clutter your desktop. Wires of laptops, electronic devices, and paperwork can make an open desk appear very disorganized and messy. Even a big table conference can look very terrible if not concealed properly within the table.  There are many interior designers and manufacturers in the industry who are developing solutions which are clean and simple.

Bringing the outdoors in - Reclaimed wood panel installations, concrete flooring and incorporating natural flora and fauna are all becoming prominent. It gives a typical office surrounding a drastic makeover. This trend is fast catching up and people sure love it. You can place fake palm trees indoor at different corners in your office; you can place artificial flower center pieces on your conference table. Artificial palm trees add an instantly relaxed atmosphere and can liven up a boring room. 

Designated lounge areas - Gone are the days of rigid work stations. Typical cubicles, a typical boss office are all becoming passé now. Now designers are creating spaces which are no longer the typical offices. Lighter, powerful wireless technology is used nowadays so that working can be more comfortable which stimulates relaxed collaboration. There are ‘lounge areas’ in some offices where a person can sit and work there for some time. Sitting for too long on the desk and the computer can be stressful and at the same boring. Lounge areas offer you a big change from the same sitting arrangement.

Office organized by color - If you organize your work environment with different colors, it will help your thoughts to be more organized and fruitful. Color boosts enjoyment, efficiency, and creativity. Integrating pops of color in your office space can be an energy booster and make the otherwise dull environment of a typical office space lively. E.g., if your office cubicle or wall is gray you can add a contrasting wallpaper which integrates the gray color, put some decorative piece of a flower pot and add some artificial plants in it like silk roses, flower balls. Turquoise flowers will look great against a white wall or on a white desk.

A mix of different textures - There is much emphasis on using a variety of materials that focus on improving productivity and wellness. Using color and texture to create a work environment which is more varied inspiring and personalized. Graphic and artistic wallpapers are a great way to add spunk and brightness to your room. Different textures can also be incorporated for sofas, tables’ etc. E.g. you can have a leather couch and a rustic wood coffee table.

Wall Decals - Putting wall decals are the new in thing for making an otherwise dull office room attractive. Some of them are with sayings others only with images. We give you some examples below “Creativity and intelligence are having fun’; “Teamwork”;” We make everyday life work.”

Tiled floors - Tiled floors are a great choice for any office. They add an instant sophisticated appearance to the entire office. However laying them down evenly and choosing the right color is extremely important. There are different types of tiles available in the market. They are made of porcelain, ceramic or stone. There are also natural stone tiles available. Tiles offer you a variety of shapes, colors, and textures. Depending on the kind of profession you are in and your office requirements you should choose which tiles to be used in the office. For e.g.- creative jobs will benefit from porcelain that boosts creativity and inspires ideas while stone tiles are better for strictly regulated jobs such as business, finance, law.

Crystal desks - Gone are the days when there were regular wooden desks for people at work. While a wooden desk is always durable and easy to clean and maintain, contemporary designs are now using different materials for office desks. Now crystals are being widely replaced by wood. There are many scientific benefits for using a crystal desk. The stone ‘citrine ’attracts success and adds more positivity in your life. It is a highly motivational stone which increases creativity and energy. Having the stone ‘green aventurine’ on your desk will increase your luck and prosperity. Combining crystals with other materials like leather, wood or metal will have a totally powerful effect altogether.

Carpets - Carpets add an instant sophistication and style to an otherwise dull room. While they can be a little difficult to maintain carpets add an instant feeling of warmth and comfort. Carpets require no special effort to be laid and can spread from one wall to another.

There is always a difference between good office and a great office. Paving the way for a great office design is essential since it will increase communication and will be a great motivation to work. Also, care should be taken that employees should be able to work in a relaxed and calm atmosphere and at no cost of their well-being. Offices have to create facilities that allow moments for quiet and reflective thoughts. Also, offices do not have to be always gray or white. According to psychologists, different colors stimulate different parts of the mind. However, don’t go over the top by using too many colors else it can backfire horribly. Use complimentary or contrast colors where employers can feel relaxed and positive.
