Are you the owner of a modern office or coworking space? If so, you probably put a lot of thought and effort into the design of your office. Staying up to date with trends and innovations is important for establishing your position as a leader in the coworking industry. When prospective tenants come to check out your office, you want to give them a reason to rent a space with you and not your competitors.
Knowing what to expect for future trends can help you get ahead of the game and gain an edge over the competition. Here are some of our predictions about what changes will take place in office design in the next few years.
Top Three Office Design Trends for the Future
The world of office design is constantly changing. Here are some trends that we expect to take place or grow in popularity in the future.
- 1. Cohabitation: In the last few years, businesses have started to realize the benefits of coworking spaces. While coworking offices are expected to remain popular, we do think that there will be some changes. Instead of separate offices, we predict that more coworking spaces will become more open with more shared areas to allow cohabitation and mingling between businesses.
- 2. More movement: There are many benefits to enabling physical activity at work, including reduced risk of obesity and diabetes1, improved productivity, and increased job satisfaction. That’s why we expect to see a continued growth in the number of offices with spaces for working out and being active. Yoga studios, rock climbing walls, and jogging trails are just some of the many types of ways that offices will incorporate physical activity.
- 3. Biophilic design: Biophilic design is expected to continue to gain popularity to the point where it will no longer considered to be an amenity, but rather a necessity. Living green walls, urban gardens, furniture made from natural materials, and nature-inspired designs will become more popular than ever before.
