Top 5 design features for the modern office

With so many different office styles to choose from, it can be daunting to embark on an office refurbishment.

All businesses strive to have a creative and inspiring workspace for their employees, but how do you go about creating such an environment?

At Cube7 Interiors, we are industry leaders in this area and have decades of experience transforming offices.

Here are our five must-have design features for creating a slick, modern office:

1. Space

Adopt a more open-plan layout. By ditching those solid office partitions and individual cubicles, you will create a feeling of space, allowing employees to collaborate and interact, leading to increased efficiency and improved teamwork.

2. Let the light flow

Studies have shown that natural light makes us more productive (and, of course, happier), so make sure as much natural light can flow into the space as possible. Get rid of any unnecessary blinds or window coverings. Also, reducing the amount of artificial lighting in your office will lower your energy costs.

3. Use glass partitions

One of the most effective ways to give your office a modern look is by using glass partitions and doors. Doing so will not only allow natural light into the area and create a feeling of space, but it will also keep a sense of privacy. Our glass partitioning systems offer the perfect alternative to solid walls and doors when it comes to creating private areas, such as those needed for meetings.

4. Create a break-out area

Having a different space to allow creative thoughts to flow is essential in the modern office. A break-out space is a must-have, providing an area to eat lunch, relax, and work away from a desk and computer. There are no rules when it comes to designing a break-out space. They can be informal, quirky and creative.

5. Opt for good quality furniture

Make sure you choose good quality office furniture. It’s used daily, and the last thing you want to worry about is replacing it after a few months. Of course, wear and tear is expected, but good quality furnishings should not only look good and feel comfortable but should be made to last too. At Cube7 Interiors, we have a great selection of office furniture.
