How Custom Furniture Can Improve Creativity and Productivity

As open and airy co-working spaces are taking over from the closed-off cubical office design aesthetic, so too are considerations surrounding custom work area furniture. Unique furniture design can encourage creativity among employees and can provide staff with the correct tools to increase production and job satisfaction. More and more businesses are moving towards unconventional office design – with some areas including zones for comfort by including bean bag chairs or napping pods; and secluded areas for private calls and conversations. The best office design concepts make the best use of space and customize needs for employees such as using small, compact desks for sales people on the go, utilizing communal areas for marketing teams, and using comfortable chairs and private areas for customer service personnel.

According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), work-related musculoskeletal disorders are a common cause of lost or restricted work time. These disorders are commonly caused by office furniture that cannot be properly adjusted to individual workers. Healthy and happy employees that use standing desks, laptop stands, and ergonomic chairs are more energized and productive.

Using Color to Boost Creativity, Productivity, and Stress Relief

Boring, drab, and unimaginative workspaces do not inspire creativity. A study at the University of Texas found that gray, white, and beige offices induced feelings of sadness and depression – especially in women. Men, however, experienced the same feelings when working in a space that primarily featured purple and orange. Choosing the correct mixture of colors can influence productivity, creativity, and mood. Restful greens and calming blues can improve efficiency and focus while providing a feeling of well-being, while optimistic yellows are best used where artists, designers, writers, and creatives work. A pop of energetic red can be beneficial where physical labor is needed.
