Following on from an impressive 2018, we are set to see plenty more progressive office design trends in 2019. From a “sociable and spirited” colour by Pantone to guilt-free, eco-friendly flooring, this year’s eclectic haul will undoubtedly inspire some new ideas for your office refurbishment.
If you’re thinking of revamping your space, then make sure you check out our office design ideas for 2019 first. By the end of the article, you could be visualising something completely different!
Introducing features like these will reduce sick days, boost productivity and create an overall healthy workplace. In short, everybody wins with a wellbeing friendly design, which is why it makes our office design trends 2019 list.
Finding an affordable workspace once posed a difficult challenge for freelancers, start-ups and small teams. These days, however, they can access shared office space without being tied into expensive, long-term contracts. This is known as co-working, and is particularly attractive to those in the creative industry due to the fact they can work to flexible hours and collaborate with like-minded people.
To create a bustling, collaborative co-working hub, consider implementing whiteboards for brainstorming, meeting pods and shared desks with integrated power. Elements like these will ensure your space is conducive to business growth, which will help to attract a consistent flow of visitors.
Feature walls can instil your brand identity, add aesthetic interest to your interiors and provide a chance to impress visitors. They needn’t be expensive either; take these for example:
Framed Testimonials – Showing off your testimonials will establish trust between you and visitors. Visitors may include potential new clients or talented future employees, so you could see a big return on a small investment.
Story Wall – Introducing a wall which chronicles your company’s journey sends a message that hard work pays off. It will also make for an interesting talking point.
Vinyl Graphic – Vinyl wall graphics are a great way to instil your brand identity. For example, if your company has an eco-friendly ethos, then a woodland graphic would be a fitting addition.
Given that feature walls offer an inexpensive way to drive brand development, it was an easy decision to include them on our office design ideas 2019 list. If you’re looking to advance your brand, then now is a good time to start brainstorming ideas for your wall.
Factory Pendant Lights – Factory style pendants with dome shades are particularly versatile and work in workspaces and breakout areas alike. Or, if you have an on site cafeteria, then factory pendants can establish a modern coffee-house aesthetic.
If you want to take the industrial look a step further, opt for exposed ceilings, brick-effect walls and raw finishes. To see an example of how features like these are used, check out our Hudl case study.
When we talk about ‘statement pieces’ in the office design world, the conversation usually centres on novelty furniture or decorations. If your company has a green ethos, however, then cork flooring can be a perfect statement piece. After all, nobody said statement pieces can’t be understated!
A response to the “onslaught of technology and social media” which inhibits human interaction, Living Coral promotes connection and intimacy. Therefore, if your business relies heavily on collaboration, Living Coral will send out a positive message to employees.
The great thing about acoustic decorations is the fact they tick the boxes for both style and practicality. These days, you can find everything from acoustic panels that look like modern art to swirling suspended displays.
For open plan offices, where noise pollution is commonplace, acoustic decorations will be a smart addition. Be embracing acoustics, you can ensure the comfort of your employees and, in turn, boost productivity.
Wishing You a Successful 2019!
We hope these trends have inspired some fresh ideas for your office refurbishment. Remember, office interiors can have a huge impact on productivity and staff satisfaction, so thinking intelligently about your design can really push brand development. Choose wisely, and your company will reap the rewards!
