Renovating your Office for the New Year

As we step into the new year and many of us make the move to return to the office after time working from home, now may be the idea time to think about renovating your office space. This is a great way to bring a new lease of life to your workplace, freshening up the interior design and creating a space where employees feel at home. Below, Lake Contracts, our commercial fit out contractors, will discuss the ways that you can work to revamp your office, providing your work force with a workplace where they can thrive.

Incorporate the outdoors 

After having spent a considerable amount of time indoors over the past two years, incorporating elements of the outdoors into your interior design can have a number of great benefits. The introduction of potted indoor plants to your office décor can work wonders when revamping a space on a limited budget, helping to brighten up your surroundings while also playing into natural themes that have appeared to rise to popularity within interior design as of late. Greenery can offer a welcome change to an indoor space, encouraging productivity and motivation which is ideal for the workplace.

Add a splash of colour

Office spaces are usually associated with shades of cream and beige, but adding a splash of colour to your workplace décor can actually have great advantages, providing your employees with a visually appealing environment that can spark their creativity and increase motivation.

Adding colour to the walls of your office space is a simple yet extremely effective way to incorporate colour into your interior design and can work to completely transform your space without breaking the bank. But what colours should you opt for?

Shades of green when used around the workplace are great for fostering environments that promote focus and concentration. Opting for decorative shades that are shown to be popular within current interior design, such as olive or sage green, is a great way to freshen up your office with minimal effort and without risk of the colour overpowering your other design features.
