Executive Enhancements | Switching Your Workplace From Lame to Luxurious in 5 Simple Steps

Your office can tell a client all they need to know about you and your business.

Take a look around now – what do you see?  Perhaps some mismatched furniture, or that cheap chair that really isn’t as ergonomic as it claimed to be.  Imagine you are seeing your office for the first time – what would you think of the person who sat behind your desk?  If you are the business owner, what does the reception area, carpets, furnishings and decor say to you about your business?  If the answer you got was hard to swallow then read on.

If presenting an image of cutting edge innovation is your aim, I have found some unique, dynamic and compelling designed office decor that will immediately impress your clients, visitors and employees.  Take a moment to consider these amazing ideas capable of transforming any office and give your workplace the pizazz that it deserves.  Take it one step at a time and watch the impact it has on you, your client relationships and your staff.

 

Step One – Seating Solutions

The days of heavy, cumbersome executive chairs made from coarse unattractive fabrics are long gone.  A perfect way to revamp and revitalise you workspaces is with space-age style and decadent luxury.  Imagine the beauty, texture and comfort of leather OS Executive Chairs.  These are not just for stylish good looks either, they are designed for ergonomic comfort.  Don’t just think of your basic black either – the stunning beauty of white leather makes a dramatic statement in any environment.

 

Step 2 – Designer Desks

Electric powered sit/stand desks are fast becoming a must have item for the modern office.  These are especially sought after for employees with back problems who have trouble sitting for a long period of time.  The concept is gaining momentum as there is growing evidence that productivity is increased using this technology.

If you are looking for something a bit more traditional, think streamlined and minimalistic designs.

 

Step 3 – Soft Walls

If you have never seen a soft wall then you have to check them out.  This marvellously simple idea creates dynamic spaces that can be modified and altered to suit your needs.  Usually manufactured from lightweight materials to enable quick and easy transformations they can also be noise reducing, eco friendly, not to mention surprisingly attractive.

 

Step 4 – Pods

Work pods allow an open plan office where your team can have free flow of thoughts and ideas allowing for a collaborative working environment but also enable your office to have quiet spaces or separate meeting areas away from distractions and noise. This ideally gives you the best of both worlds and enables staff to function more productively.

 

Step 5 – Luxury Lighting

Natural sunlight can transform your office from a dreary dungeon into a stunning, inviting workspace.  It has been shown to improve the mood and productivity of employees as well as energising the whole environment.  If introducing more sunlight is difficult, try changing window treatments by using modern, light filtering blinds.

Modern lighting options can also take away the stark, cold look of fluorescent lighting whilst still being effective.  They can transform feature areas such as boardrooms and reception areas into showpieces by creating a stylish feature and giving off a warm ambience.

Your office speaks volumes to any client or visitor who enters it.  With that in mind, it pays to make the best impression possible.  Open your mind to new ideas and you can create a work environment which both you and your employees will love to spend their days in.
