If your offices and office reception area is feeling a little tired and uninspiring, there’s a lot you can do to improve it – even if you don’t have the budget for a big remodel. Here are some easy, affordable modern office ideas to freshen up your space.
- Add some green: Plants add life to an office, quite literally. They’re inexpensive and, if you choose the right plants, easy to maintain. They are also great for improving employee wellbeing by filtering air, reducing stress and boosting moods. Good plants for office spaces include snake plants, ficus, aloes (for sunny offices), orchids, and peace lilies. Be sure to check the plants light and water needs so you place them in the right areas of your office and, if you don’t want the hassle of caring for them yourself, there are companies who will supply and maintain office plants for you.
- Upgrade your lighting: If the mood and productivity at your office is low, your lights may be to blame. Poor lighting can lead to eye strain, headaches and mood problems, while good lighting – especially natural light – improves wellness, productivity and energy levels. Increasing natural light in your office through architectural glass walls or replacing old light bulbs with energy-saving LED bulbs will refresh your office and save on energy costs.
- Get personal: Letting your employees add personality to their workspace is one of the best ways of injecting new life into your workplace. Simply develop a few policies and basic guidelines outlining acceptable décor and other limitations and encourage your staff to exercise their creativity.
- Add art: Art is an underutilized resource for adding color, character and creativity to the workplace. Try think beyond bland office art and connect with your brand if you want to really inspire and energize your staff. For example, if your company is focused on Green initiatives then professional scenic and wildlife photography is a great choice, or if your company works in the media space then classic movie posters will be perfect.
