Technology is fully integrated into our lives, is an everyday necessity, and is not going anywhere. Why not integrate it into your modern workspace? I am sure you already have a smartphone, laptop, tablet, etc., but what about a desk that charges your phone? Or glare screens and blue light glasses to save your eyes while working with technology all day? Upgrading your office will give it a new life, making it more interesting and motivating for employees.
Combine Tech and Furniture
Today there are tons of technology-friendly features you can have in your office furniture. Such as USB ports, monitor risers, and wireless charging desk accessories. Charging tables are on the rise and even installed in Starbucks and other coffee shops so that customers don’t have to worry about dead devices. Investing in ergonomic chairs for employees will make them more comfortable throughout the day and therefore, more productive. You can get a floating desk designed to be mounted to a window, or a desk that can be adjusted to fit your height or used standing up. These furniture upgrades are an investment that will be worth your money.
Opt for Modern Lighting
Lighting highly affects your productivity throughout the day. It doesn’t seem like it would be that big of a deal, but it can make all the difference in your day and create a modern atmosphere. Poor lighting and harsh glares will affect the work of employees and make it harder to get stuff done. Get rid of fluorescent bulbs and switch them out with softer LED bulbs. Using glare screens will help seeing screens better in rooms with natural lighting. The more natural lighting the better, it will greatly improve employees’ work attitudes. Blue light glasses will also help you last all day working in front of screens.
Make it Modern with Greenery
Add life and freshen up your workspace with plants. They will help filter the air, improving air quality in the office, and removing toxins. Plants are a great way to transition your office from a classic design to a more modern workspace. Plants will help bring the outdoors inside, hopefully energizing employees and relieving stress. Some great options for indoor plants are Snake Plant Laurentii, Dracaena Gold Star, Aloe Vera, Monstera Deliciosa, Pothos, ZZ Plant, Spider Plant, Bird’s Nest Fern, Peace Lily, and the Philodendron Green.
