Style in sync with function
Living space Incognito with office space must have an equalizing balance of function both to sustain the activity of a productive work day and the comforts of home to escape from the office. Adequate work surfaces to accommodate projects and the piles of paperwork must have a catch-all place to file and put things away after each days work and to be easily accessed the next day. Cabinets, chests and armoires that are chosen for their storage capacity must also be spectacularly wonderful in your space. Think of the dual purposing of every component, a functioning office does not have to look like a typical office.
Board room verses boring room
Is an opportunity to add visual spark to the tone of the meeting with an unexpected version of a conference table. Glass top tables have always brought to any room a modern slick element but with the great look has always been the high maintenance factor of endlessly cleaning smudges and dust associated with glass, an uncompromising trade off! The design possibilities with glass have become limitless, glass table tops that are obscured with texture and finishes now provide the ease of care in a commercial setting. Marvel your clients at the next meeting…seat them at your strikingly stately conference table.
Diversity in color…release it
What could be more non productive than staring at a white wall for inspiration all day at work. The office should appeal to the intellect of the workforce and clients with the spirit of color. Vivid or subtle, an abundance or just a single hue, our brain reacts to color. There must be stimulation to raise productivity and awaken ideas of the people who interact in this space. Create motley of color in either in the artwork and design elements of the office or with a specific paint color combination. Boost the morale of your workplace by establishing a visually stimulating work environment with the effects of color.
