Ways To Design An Efficient And Fun Office For Work

Today, the dynamics of the younger working population has given rise to office concepts that introduce creativeness, fun and relaxation into the working experience. When it comes to the topic of dream offices, big names like Google and Facebook are some of the most amazing offices that comes into people’s minds. While you may not have the space or funds that these business giants have, there are still many ways you can create a fun yet efficient work space for your office. Here’s how!

Creating Sufficient Space

One of the most important factors in creating a comfortable office that provides room for creativity and motivation is space, lots and lots of space. A cluttered work environment does not promote productivity. Apart from the physical discomfort, clutter can bring mental stress to the people who have to work around the clutter as well. If you have many old documents that are seldom used or equipment like banner stands, temporary tables and chairs that are occasionally used for events in your office, a better way to store these things is to place them in an external storage.

At Work+Store, self storage spaces come in a range of sizes from 6 sqft 625 sqft secured with a 24 hours access card security system. Our self-storage space also enables you to give one-time digital access to your guest or employee via a mobile app so you can get someone else to retrieve whatever you need remotely without worrying about passing the key around. By relocating these items, you create a great amount of space that can be used for other purposes like a leisure corner or an extra working table. You can even choose to simply leave it empty for more breathability in the office.

Interior Design

Think about the colours, lighting and the setting of the work environment. What influence does it have on your team’s ability to concentrate on the work? An office with dull lighting or walls painted in gloomy colours can bring the motivation and mood people in the space down easily.

If your workplace allows for plenty of natural light, make the most of it. Your workplace will be energy efficient, and studies show that natural lighting is an excellent mood booster. Where you don’t have enough windows, LED light is a great energy saver and a good option.

Consider re-arranging the workplace set up so that you let in more natural light. If you have cartons and files obstructing a source of light, consider keeping these in the cheapest self-storage in Singapore. At Work+Store self-storage units, you can still access it any time of the day and your units will be under round the clock surveillance.

Think of the Ergonomics and Comfort

Poor ergonomics in a workplace are a recipe for low productivity or workplace-related injuries and illnesses. Ailments such as backaches, eye strain, neck problems and the little known Carpal Tunnel Syndrome could be everyday occurrences if you do not design the workplace with ergonomics in mind.

If you are not sure about ergonomic designs, the government, through the ministry of Health and Manpower provides guidelines on improving ergonomics in the workplace.

Make a Get Away Place

Keep in mind that all work and no rest will burn out your team and plummet their productivity. Remember to create a space where they can escape from their desks and take a break and relax. Have a small and cosy pantry for a short coffee break or even a gaming area with a foosball table to refresh your employees.

These tips will help you design a work place that promotes efficiency and fun for a more productive workforce. If you wish to find out more about Work + Store and our other storage options, feel free to contact us at 6578 9966 or email us at space@workstore.com.sg for more information!
