Illuminate Your Office Space Intelligently

WHAT YOUR INTERIORS SAY ABOUT YOU

Your interiors say a lot about the design and the overall appeal of your office. This appeal does not only apply to your clients but as well as the people working for you. The office furniture and other tangible aspects inside the workplace tells a lot about your business and is the winning factor on how to achieve a successful and productive work atmosphere.

However, some businesses do not realize the importance of lighting in the office premises. Industrial lights may seem to be a standard or an already acceptable source of illumination inside the workplace. Unfortunately, this is not always the case.

The best quality of light perfect for work is ALWAYS daylight. It varies and adjusts naturally during the day. Such natural adjustment is gentle to one’s vision and it also provides a visual delight as colors are rendered accurately. Another factor that makes natural light the best lighting for work is that it’s free and cost-effective. Large glass windows surrounding the workplace is a great idea to naturally illuminate the workplace.

This may not be the case always. With so many skyscrapers around the commercial area, there are not enough daylight that can supply illumination in the work place. Here is where artificial lighting comes in the picture. Choosing the right type of artificial illumination for the working environment is a large factor in satisfying the comfort needs an employee will experience in the area.

Here are some tips on how to complement the available day light in your working spaces to ensure that quality and quantity lighting, minus the extra overhead cost is available all throughout the day in the workplace.

NATURAL LIGHT IN WORKING SPACE

To make the most out of the natural light available in your offices, opening areas and allowing a greater flow of light from the windows is the first step. You can use glass walls as dividers for cubicles and offices instead of dry walls to allow more light to come in. This makes you use less artificial lights during the day reducing energy consumption in the workplace.

Skylights can also another option to get more natural light inside the office. More natural light means more energy coming inside the office. It also helps in making the people inside more alert. A gloomy, dark office can make anyone longing for a relaxing afternoon nap.

BRIGHTER IS BETTER

Nature is far too beneficial compared to artificial lighting. However, natural lighting is not always available especially when work goes as the unforgiving hours in the morning. Making sure that there is sufficient enough with quality illumination during this hours in the office adds to everyone’s work productivity.

Pin lights would be ideally located close to each other to provide more elimination. White walls can also contribute in making your working areas brighter.

Light-colored office furniture can also make the room look brighter and it clean too. Metallic surfaces can also help reflect light to further brighten your area and accessorize the look of you working spaces too. They are both appealing, decorative and illuminates your indoors too.

The Basic Criteria for a Good Design and a Good Business

The Basic Criteria For Good Design Business

The Basic Criteria for a Good Design and a Good Business

A good business can be attributed to many things. A good boss, a great management, great working conditions and a place for growth and belongingness. Offering such ideal situations to your employees helps not only in creating a good business, you are creating a lasting and growing business that is bound to success.

Parallel to design, there are many criteria that defines what a good design is and how it can contribute to the greatness of a business. Here are some key concepts you should pay attention to be able to apply good design and achieve good business in your organization.

Empathy

Solving problems and improving lives has always been a mission of organizations. Providing a product or a product that offers empathy to its clients is what makes a business sell, grow and last. Meeting the needs of the users or your target markets keeps you in the game of the competition, reaping ROIs and profits along the way.

The same goes for design. You should have empathy towards the people that use and makes a living out of your business. Showing empathy to your employees reaps loyalty and productivity – two factors that makes any endeavor a success.

Identifying the areas where your employees experience discomfort makes them realize that you pay attention to their needs and is more than willing to offer the best working conditions to them.

Proving better lighting and ventilation to working areas, adding a pantry where they can spend their lunch breaks, investing in more comfortable chairs or adding an office gym to your office are just a few of the comforts you can provide to your employees.

Value

Contributing value through the design and changes that you implement in your working areas does wonders for a business. Adding relaxing office furniture in the work place does not only add value to the aesthetics of the office. It also adds value to the health and wellness of the people working for you.

Investing value to your employees – seminars, training and coaching sessions, better facilities, bigger and brighter offices, is investing value to your business. The more positive you invest in your business, the more value your people can provide to you and to your clients.

Inspiration

Galvanizing and engaging society, community and environment keeps everyone growing, starting from your people to your business in general.

Giving a corner or bigger office to employees who excel in the workplace gives inspiration to the others that their hard work will always be reciprocated with something good.

Ethics and Responsibility

Contributions that realized and transforms communities, the environment and lifestyles make a business grow and gain respect from the market that they evolve in. But how can one incorporate ethics and responsibility in design? Introducing green architecture to the working place is a business’s contribution in making the world a better place to live in, no matter how cliché it may sound. Supporting local suppliers and businesses that may aid in your business is another way of being socially responsible for the growth of the community surrounding around your organization.

Sustainability

Minimization of waste and environment footprint. Using recycled paper or having recycled office furniture upscaled for further use in your working places are simple ways in minimizing waste in the office. LED lights and promoting the use of natural ventilation is your business contribution to society and nature.

Progress

Pioneering the future and presenting strategic value to businesses and communities. To make a business a good one, an organization that exist not only for profits but also for contributing to the greater good is a company where people would want to be a part of. You’ll see talents of different colors and personalities wanting to be part of your organization, willing to contribute productively and wholeheartedly to your business and the visions that the organization believes in.

This and more is what great businesses are made of. It may be difficult to achieve all of this at once, but it is nothing impossible to do.

Not all businesses are created equal. Some are bigger and enjoys a vast amount of resource compared to others. However, even with limited assets, a small start-up business can still invest in an efficiently designed office without hurting their budget.

The area in the office that takes the most space is the conference room. Although conference areas are necessary functions your office should always have, they are not used daily. Four working tables that can be easily attached together can be transformed into a conference table with ease.

Aligning Office Furniture Along the Walls

You’ll be saving operational costs inside the office, consume less office supply and your employees will feel more relaxed with the set-up. Software and other computer tools can keep them working productively and efficiently even while t home.

Removing Cubicles and Converting into An Open Space Plan

Cubicles and closed office rooms can really take up a lot of space. Open space planning makes the look of an office simple – removing clutter and unnecessary furnishings and accessories. Open space planning is becoming a preferred office layout even for big offices too.

The best design solution for the office is having versatility and flexibility with your office furniture and accessories. Knowing the basic design concepts also makes it easier to move things around to make the office look spacious. Such aids in boosting the morale of your employees as well.
