Now that the New Year is upon us, many businesses are looking to update their office space and help boost the morale of their staff. Many business owners are looking to the new office furniture trends of the New Year to determine ways to update their space and help increase their overall productivity. Some of the latest office furniture trends include:
- Meeting Areas- The idea of the traditional conference room is becoming a thing of the past. Instead of an enclosed space to conduct meetings, more office spaces are incorporating open meeting areas to conduct business. Having an open meeting area allows communication to flow smoothly and freely without the daunting limitations of a conference room and desk setup.
- Workstations- Instead of working behind closed doors or in cubicles, the workstation is becoming smaller, yet more open. As the devices we use become smaller, and our need for paper organization diminishes, office workstations are becoming smaller, yet more open. Standing workstations are also becoming more mainstream to help promote a healthier work environment while also helping to promote communication and collaboration among team members.
- Technology- As technology continues to evolve, office spaces are beginning to evolve with it. Desks and work areas are being created to support the technology being used within the offices. Rooms are becoming more open and universal to help integrate video conferencing and other technology with the office and your team members.
- Color- Studies are continuously showing us that color within an office holds several benefits. This is why more offices are using different colors instead of the traditional white or cream. Offices are incorporating colors that promote calm and creativity while also using artwork throughout the space as well.
