When many of us think about cubicles, our minds immediately go to images of those iconic dull, uniform and drone-like office spaces of the 1970s. Fortunately, these useful office workspace dividers have come a long way since then, with modern office cubicles featuring vastly improved designs, additional functionality and style, thanks to the innovative use of color, materials and in-built tech features. Business owners can take this creativity and individuality even further using these tips!
- Define your décor policy: One of the easiest ways to achieve a more enjoyable and functional cubicle desk system is to encourage your employees to get involved. This has the dual result of improving your workplace as well as helping your employees take ownership. Simple rules just need to be put in place to ensure that creative ideas stay within the boundaries of your workplace culture and company vision. If you want to make the process even more fun, hold a competition!
- Plants: Greenery adds life and oxygen to your office space, and can be a great addition to a cubicle. Choose plants that don’t have high care needs and don’t put pollen into the air, like succulents, asparagus fern, Sansevieria, areca palm, Money plant or a Jade plant.
- Get colorful: Colors add vibrancy and boost mood, and they’re easy to add to cubicles without being permanent. Tack up material or colorful paper on your walls or poster board sections, add a rug or – if you have material walls – attach frames with bright pictures and photos to your walls with Velcro.
- Go ergonomic: Style won’t count for much if you aren’t combining it with comfort. Ergonomic desks and chairs help boost productivity and work enjoyment, and it’s easy – and budget-friendly – to include these into your cubicle and office design. Another good idea that adds comfort is to let your employees control their own lighting where possible – for example, having an additional lamp or full spectrum bulb at their desks.
