Office design ideas
Over the last 20 years the modern office has gone through a significant change. Gone is the traditional, drab, compartmentalised layout and in its place we now find airy, open plan spaces packed with design features ranging from standing-up desks to trendy break out areas to a decorative brick wall.
This doesn’t mean to say that you need to immediately install a ball pit and office putting green like Silicon Valley giant Google. Even something as simple as a decorative brick wall can transform a workplace and have a really positive impact on customers and employees.
There is just something about exposed brickwork which suggests heritage and authenticity. Two great qualities that every business would want to be associated with.
Research increasingly shows that the office environment has a huge impact on the health and wellbeing of employees. Not only can it improve productivity and creativity, but studies have found that a positive working environment can even result in less sick days.
According to The Global Impact of Biophilic Design in the Workplace study, people who work in spaces with natural features such as a decorative brick wall or office plants reported 15% higher levels of overall wellbeing. Furthermore, the respondents expressed feeling 6% more productive and 15% more creative at work.
So it seems that if employers want to get the best from their workforce it’s worth investing in their office space.
Spice up your office space with a decorative brick wall
Using brick slips can transform a workplace and bring an otherwise boring, uninspiring wall to life. We’ve already talked about the benefits of natural features on employee wellbeing but this positive impact also extends to customers. Installing a decorative brick wall in a reception area for example, creates a great first impression. Inspiring potential new clients, suggesting professionalism, elegance and functionality. A decorative brick wall can also be used to break up an open plan office space, creating a smoother visual transition between light and dark areas.
