Design to Create: Designing an Office That Promotes Creativity

Office renovation planning

They say your office is practically your second home. As such, it’s supposed to foster inspiration that will keep you moving. But with the workload, you have to deal with and the things you have to face at home, redesigning your office falls at the bottom of your list of priorities.

It’s time to revamp your office. So dump your priorities and gather your inspiration.

Here are some hacks that will help you turn your existing office into a haven of creativity:

Build a Wall

Many consider open office plan as one of the breakthroughs in a workspace in the recent years. But this is not always the case. A lot of people still prefer isolation and concentration to small talk and noise. If you’re not a fan of open office plan, it’s time to build partitions and fit outs. You can make use of the internal side of the room by plastering pictures, corkboard, and motivational quotes.

Invest in Ergonomics

Creativity is often a result of comfort and convenience. With this, you’ll need to ditch your old chair and table. Embrace ergonomics. Remember, you’re supposed to work in the office for 8 hours or more, and it doesn’t help that you sustain muscular pains and injuries because of a faulty equipment set.

Let The Light In

Are you claustrophobic? If yes, you need to break free! If you have built a wall around you to inspire concentration, make sure that you leave a side for your window. Natural light can do a lot to your body. Seeing the events outside your window can stimulate your mind and help you find ideas that will help you in your work.

An office space that inspires creativity doesn’t happen overnight (unless you have the budget and time). Given the situation, you should carry out the adjustments one by one until things fall into their respective places.
