Flooring has an important part to play in the design of a new workspace. Whether you are looking to completely redesign your workspace, moving into new premises or just looking to change your flooring, we will work with you to ensure we create the perfect flooring space for you.
Where you work clearly matters: The design of the office can impact on employees’ performance, mood, efficiency and sense of well being, employees are happier in a more positive environment. Aim to create workspaces that allow for concentration, encourage collaboration, inspire creativity and improve productivity.
Using flooring to create different workspace areas within one office space gives great flexibility and can improve your companies’ structure. We suggest using varying colour schemes across the floors to designate certain areas for different tasks. This ensures that employees have the choice to work in a way that suits the task.
Here are some ways to create an ideal workspace for your employees using different designated areas:
Set aside space for a break out area
Having areas in the workspace that employees can use to take a break from their desk is crucial to their well being and productivity. This gives employees a space to recharge and relax as well as a casual area to collaborate and brainstorm ideas.
The open plan office space
The open plan workspace is the main area that is used daily. It needs to accommodate lone working while allowing for communication between employees. Collaboration comes more naturally in an open plan workspace, fostering a team spirit.
The quiet office space
Along with the collaborative open space it is also important to provide quiet zones. This area should enable employees to work alone for prolonged periods. Or even to provide a confidential meeting space.
A meeting room can leave a strong impression on clients. The best meeting rooms are the ones that express what your company is all about. Whether your style is fun and quirky or traditional you can reflect this easily with your choice of flooring. Carpet tiles have excellent acoustic properties, which will help to keep the meeting room quiet as well ensuring privacy. Look to create flexible meeting rooms for both employees and visitors, which can be used for an impromptu meeting or a welcoming professional space to receive a client. The flexibility of these spaces is where their value lies.
The modern workplace is now a place to collaborate and exchange ideas rather than just “get the job done”. The best companies are investing in their workplaces to promote wellbeing and productivity all round.
