A commercial office renovation offers an opportunity to improve the space where your employees spend long hours serving your clients. For this reason, you should aim to make the space as comfortable, healthy and inspiring as possible.

Here are some interior design tips for your commercial office space.

Paint your walls with bright colours

While the colours on the interior walls of your office space should create a positive and professional image of your business or organisation, they will also influence the mood and thoughts of your employees. 

Neutral colours like white, grey, beige, cream and their variations may look clean, but they do little to evoke the feelings and emotions of employees. On the other hand, darker colours can be downright depressing.

Painting your walls with a bright colour, even in a relatively neutral hue, can make your office staff feel good. When you set off the overall mood of employees, workplace productivity increases. 

You can combine colours provided they don't detract from the office interior design.

Invest in ergonomic furniture

If your office staff sit at their work desks for long hours, you should get them ergonomic furniture. This type of furniture is specifically designed with the health, safety and comfort of the user in mind. It allows someone to perform their work quickly, comfortably and efficiently while minimizing the risk of injury to their body.

Some common types of injury that may arise due to a lack of ergonomic furniture in the workplace include:

  • Lower back pain
  • Rotator cuff tears
  • Tennis elbow
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)

The cost to treat ergonomic injuries can be quite expensive. In some cases, these injuries may require life-long treatment and management. Providing your employees with ergonomically designed furniture will help mitigate these risks.

Add some greenery to your office space

Bringing some greenery into your office can work magic for the overall mood of your employees. Well-placed indoor plants will add a touch of nature to your workplace setting. This can have an energizing effect on the brain and reduce the urge to constantly look outside the window, allowing office staff to get more work done.

Your office staff can have a profound impact on your business or organisation, both positively and negatively. Providing them with a safe, comfortable and inspiring work environment will significantly boost your company's bottom line.
