The Christmas break is a great time to give the office a makeover ready for when staff return in the New Year. Something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can do wonders for staff morale and motivation – and after all, they say a change is as good as a holiday.
However, with Christmas a busy period and suppliers often taking a break themselves now is the best time to plan out what you’d like to do. This week we’re giving you three simple ideas for workplace makeovers ready for 2014.
1. Create a feature wall
A feature wall can add character that completely changes the dynamic of your office space. This can be done by choosing one wall and painting it in an energetic colour, tiling it, or even purchasing wall art and decorating it. Some offices have a ‘wall of fame’ displaying business achievements for staff and visitors to see.
2. Make a breakout area
A breakout area offers employees the change to get away from work-related stress, improving employee morale and hopefully achieving increased productivity. It can also be a place to meet clients or even have office brainstorms. The good news is they don’t have to be expensive. A few cushions, beanbags, or a friendly table and chair design in the corner of a room is all you need.
3. Plant features
What better way to freshen up your workplace than with live plants throughout the office. Both hanging plants and pot plants can inject a lot of life into the office space. A handmade planter bed can also act as a feature in your office.
