10 Ways to Update Your Outdated Office Space - Carol Evenson - Blog

10 Ways to Update Your Outdated Office Space

In our offices, we can find ourselves with little motivation to update the space; however, it is important to note that the physical space of a workplace can have a weighty influence on employees. While having an outdated office area may be drab and unappealing, it can also lead to less productive employees who feel energized and motivated. By updating your physical space you can not only take your design to the next level, but you can also use this as an opportunity to create a better workspace for all.

Fortify Space to Withstand Time

Nothing says outdated space like cracking and damaged flooring. Make sure that you create a space that withstands the test of time and use by protecting it with products like pentra. Without a protective seal, you can soon find yourself needing to fix significant damage from daily use.

Use Colors Creatively

Offices used to be plagued with drab walls, offering little to no personality or aesthetic appeal. Give the premises some personality by tapping into people’s emotions and outlook through your use of color. Consider updating your colors to incorporate your brand, accentuate the workspace and set a productive and calm ambiance.

Reduce Unused Space

After spending some time in the office, you may realize that you are underutilizing or even wasting space. If you find that you there are areas of your premises that are being underutilized, consider taking the time to evaluate where your business could expand and repurpose this area. By giving space a great deal of intention and thought, you can ensure that you optimally use every inch.

Change Your Layout

If you can substantially change your office space, consider reevaluating your layout entirely. Whether you look at the position of communal or receiving spaces or consider adding in additional areas for focused work, this can be the perfect time for this assessment.

Create Collaborative Spaces

As you evaluate space, it can be important to take the time to reassess the needs of your business. Today’s young professionals are looking for spaces that promote creativity and collaboration. Consider designating an area for collaboration that can help harness and promote the use of this powerful tool.

Make Your Spaces Flexible

The reality is that it can be challenging to fit everything you need in one space. For those who have limited space or who are just looking to embrace innovation within their premises, consider making flexible spaces that can adapt to any need. Whether you choose modular furniture or designate areas that can serve multiple purposes, you can make spaces that can pivot as quickly as your staff.

Support the Process

As you look to create the best environment to support your staff, consider what tools they may need to be their best professional selves. Whether you introduce technology-savvy spaces or include whiteboards in all collaborative spaces, what you adorn your space with matters. If you understand what kind of business actions are completed daily, then you can decide how to best support these.

Introduce Greenery

Introducing natural elements into the office space can serve you well, as plants have many benefits. While they can offer fresh air, particularly in stuffy office spaces, they can also offer a calming element to any office. By juxtaposing natural elements with modern, clean lines, this adds both a trendy feel without going over the top.

Amplify Lighting

Lighting can play a significant role in our lives. By increasing lighting in your office space, you can help make a positive change in your staff’s happiness, productivity and wellbeing. Ideally, natural light is certainly the best option; however, this can also be mimicked with the right synthetic light. Having amply light in your space can keep your staff awake and alert without causing a jarring and unpleasant experience.

Reevaluate the Work

Another important evaluation that you need to conduct in your search to promote the perfect professional space is whether the work needs to be done on-site or not. In this modern, digital age that we live in, it only makes sense that this may be the perfect time to evaluate the need to do in-person work. While some jobs will require this, companies can save a great deal of money by reducing the number of necessary in-person employees.

Workplaces don’t need to be the drag, outdated and uninspiring spaces that they once were. Companies can create spaces that showcase a real personality, where their employees can truly thrive. Through some physical adjustments and intentional planning, organizations can create a truly aesthetically appealing and wonderful experience for all staff.
