Before you think about building and office, sometimes you need to consider how you’re going to create specific spaces and work that into the construction. Research has shown that the design of an office space affects how much work is done and the quality of the work. Here are some tips to help you design office spaces that promote high productivity.
- Include variety. Design spaces that employees can customize to their preferences.
- Make sure the lighting is good. Employees who can’t see well, won’t work very well either. Poor lighting can also cause headaches and stress. Try to incorporate as much natural light as possible and work in indirect lighting where you can’t use natural lighting.
- Raise the ceilings. Raised ceilings promote free thinking.
- Paint the walls any color except white. Try brighter colors like red, blue and green, which increase creativity and productivity.
