Spring Office Design Ideas for 2017: Avoid the Ordinary

May 2, 2017 | Blog

The home office design is one of the biggest trends of 2017, putting more emphasis on creating a comfortable, residential workplace. Introduce soft furniture and floral pillows for a homely feel and lively spring vibe.

Traditional furniture finish options like cherry and maple will always have their place in some projects, but they have become rather ordinary. Spice things up with trend-setting tones like grey and white – they are sleek, classy and have a coastal element to them. When choosing between gloss and matte white for desks, consider where your light sources are and how the light will reflect from a shinier surface as gloss white desk tops can give off glare.

If you are looking to improve corporate appeal and the guest experience in your waiting area, why not try modular seating? It will maximise square footage and seating potential, whilst giving you the option to have powered waiting room furniture – allowing your guests to work while they wait with USB ports and plug sockets subtly located within the arms.

Introducing wall art is a simple, cost effective way to give your office a lift this spring. You could opt for a custom wallpaper that is meaningful to your employees and reflective of your brand values, art canvases or vinyl wall stickers. Remember to incorporate your company colours into the workplace, adding some colour and looking professional to your clients.

Keep on trend with Pantone’s colour of the year ‘Greenery’ whilst thinking about your health and wellbeing, and add some desktop plants to your workplace. Areca Palms act as a natural humidifier, the Variegated Snake Plant is an air purifier and Lemon Balm elevates mood. Another great way to introduce a spring mood. Plus, studies have shown that the colour green reduces stress!

Millennials continue to influence the direction of workplace design, as this generation wants a career that generates a sense of purpose and contributes to the greater good. As a result, it is the job of business owners and workplace designers like our partner KTM Design to ensure that the workspace embodies and visually represents these goals.
