The Importance of Design
Color schemes, spacing and room layout, ergonomic furniture and lighting are all incredibly important for a product work place and a happy home life. The psychological impact of these factors could be the difference between a happy productive workforce or a miserable place to be forced to return to everyday.
Quality Materials and Furnishings
Did you know that when carpets are removed from commercial buildings the rate of staff sickness dramatically increases? Quality carpet will trap bacteria, dust mites and all other sorts of nasty things that are prone to making us ill. It’s a constant filter.
Quality paint will last longer, look better and prevent mold and rot. Exceptional painting and decorating (like the firm I recommend below) will promote a happy, more focused workforce. This applies to all areas of life and work too. Poorly designed, uncoordinated colours along with a messy, improper use of space makes focusing on the important things difficult. This is why we tend to feel better when our offices, and more specifically our desks are well organised.
Ergonomic furniture is also important. A healthier workforce is a happier and more productive workforce. This is an investment in your employees overall health as well. Sitting with poor posture will reduce focus, weaken the spine and is a major contributor to heart disease.
