How to Bring your Office into the 21st Century

16.03.2020

It is hard for a business to become a big success if the business itself is stuck in the past.

These days, businesses need to be up to date with the times and be more forward thinking for success. One of the places you should start is with the office space that you have. So here are some of the ways that you can bring your office and workspace into the 21st century:

Spaces to relax

There is a lot of evidence to show that employees having regular breaks and some time to relax and unwind can actually help productivity in the office. So with this in mind, it is important to have space in the office that works out as a relaxing or breakout space. You could use an existing room and just update it with worktops and counters for the team to use and even get TVs installed, games and consoles.

Open Plan Layout

If you want a modern office space, being more flexible and open is a must. Managers and the leaders should consider creating a workspace where all people are equal. This is very effective with an open plan layout, along with desking and shelving that encourages positivity and productivity.

Promote Health

It is important to make sure that you promote health in the office, especially if you are looking to update and bring the office into the 21st Century. You could look to get modern desking for team members, as well as cabinets and cupboards for all of the things that they need, allowing office spaces to be clear and decluttered.

It is so important to make sure that you have hygienic washrooms in the office too.  This can include additional cleaning and having  modern technology in place. There are some great cubicles for the washrooms within the office, as well as modern technology such as self-flushing toilets, automatic soap dispensers and hand dryers. A healthy workforce is going to be a happy workforce.

Light and Bright

Staring at a screen for hours on end can be hard on the eyes and lead to headaches which is why having plenty of natural light into the office is going to really help. Fake light, alongside computer screens, can be quite damaging, which isn’t what you want in a modern office space. So, if you have the old-school fluorescent tube lighting, then it is time to update. 

The Office Decor

An office in the 21st Century needs to be light and airy, as mentioned. But having the right decoration makes a difference too. Decorating in neutral colours is one of the best ways to go, as it is subtle and can be a clever interior design trick.
