Is your office on the cutting edge?

If a look around your office provides a very similar image today than it did when you first started with your company, chances have it that the office design is missing the mark.

Today’s cutting-edge offices know that contemporary interior design is an important part of staying competitive in today’s business world. By taking a quick inventory of today’s business climate, it’s easy to see why modern and contemporary design is so important. That’s because today’s workers value technology, innovation, and change. If your office doesn’t represent these values, it’s time to take inventory.

Office Flooring with Options

A lot of people tell me that office design is a boring topic.  While I am quick to disagree, I can see how the topic of office furniture and decor might not top everyone’s list of exciting things to think about.  However, every once in a while, I find a product that just screams excitement.  And today, this product happens to be carpet.

While office flooring might not be the first thing you think of when you begin making office design plans, it is an integral component of the overall look of a workspace.  If you’re in the market for a new carpet for your office, I highly encourage you to check out the random patterns available from FLOR.  There are a few reasons why I think FLOR is the office flooring company to choose.  

First, you can choose a completely individual pattern from FLOR by mixing and matching different tiles, or you can choose one of their own unique patterns.  Second, these tiles are easy to clean and care for.  They stick to your floor, allowing you to remove them and wash them individually (won’t that be useful the next time you spill your morning coffee?).  Finally, FLOR is committed to environmental responsibility.  Not only does the company commit to eliminating any impact it poses on the environment, but it will even come to your location, pick up your old FLOR tiles once you’re ready for a new look, and take them back to their factory to recycle them.  

Individual style plus easy care and environmental concern…I dare you to find a better office flooring option.

Take Office Decorating Ideas Back to Nature

It’s important that our office promotes the right look.  And, while there are several office decorating ideas, using plants as part of your office decor is not only easy, but it’s also smart.

Whether floor plants, desk plants, or hanging plants suit your office best, using plants as part of your office decor brings life to any office setting.  Additionally, employees tend to embrace plants as decorations, as do clients.  Finally, plants are a relatively cheap investment and they don’t go out of style, so you can get a lot of decorating mileage out of a plant.

Does Office Decor Top Your Priority List?

We all know that office decor is important, but just how much importance do you devote to it?  If office decorating isn’t one of the top priorities on your office “to-do” list, you might be missing the mark. 

Not only does the right office decor contribute to the workability and overall look of your office, but it helps your employees function happily.  And, happy workers are productive workers. 

So, as you’re creating your list of office projects for the year, reconsider how many other tasks you put above office decorating.

Cutting the Office Clutter

I used to  start almost every week with piles of papers stacked all over my desk.  There was the week’s “to-do” pile, then there was last week’s “to-do” pile, and then, somewhere, there was last month’s “to-do” pile.  When I saw all those unattended to-do piles, guess what?  I got so worried about not getting things done that I would tell myself I didn’t have the time to organize my piles.  Instead, I made myself get right to work (which usually also meant that I immediately started creating new piles!).

I’m sure you know where this is going–my desk space would turn out to be a disorganized mess, which meant I was not as productive or efficient as I knew I could be.  I found some help, however.  By rethinking my office space and getting creative with decorating, I’ve been able to get myself organized.

My office is pretty small, so I had to come up with a way of decorating small spaces that keeps me organized while giving my office a new flare.  First, I found some contemporary bamboo mail holders that let me organize my bills, letters, and all other forms of correspondence.  Then, I found file organizers that matched my office decor.  I was startled at the fact that once I started finding accessories that got me excited, I wanted to use them.  And, use them I did.  I’m now a proud organizer with a clear workspace that makes me more efficient and much happier!

The Office Decor Dilemma

It seems that there’s some controversy regarding office decor.  Apparently, some offices don’t like to give their employees much freedom when it comes to decorating their own office. 

In some ways, this might make sense.  After all, we’ve all passed the eye-sore office that is filled with stuffed animals, fake flowers, and gaudy posters on the wall.  But what about the opposite?  Offices that hold a strict policy against decorating at all seem to miss the mark as well.  Bland white walls and no decorating accessories translate to one common feeling: boredom.

How does your workplace handle office decor?  And, most importantly, what works when it comes to office decorating?
