    Great Office Space = Happier Employee
    Create the perfect first impression. The modern and hybrid office speaks volumes of the company’s core values, expertise, and dedication. From the company’s modern filing systems to its contemporary reception desk, first impressions are born from the details of the office environment. From collaborative office seating to contemporary office desks-strikes the progressive note that leaves a lasting impression and makes the modern office interior look stunning.

    Colour Scheme
    Multiple shades of green, oranges, and yellows can all be overwhelming furniture colors when applied liberally—but they create beautiful, chic looks when utilized properly. AK Interiors played a color challenge to Playstudios fresh and aesthetically pleasing appearance, ensuring to promote feelings of calmness and contentment.

    Take a Break to Get More Done
    Rarely do our biggest “A-ha!” moments come in the middle of a big conference or formal meeting. Instead, we’ve probably noticed most of our high-impact ideas come when we least expect it – while we’re having coffee with a friend, out for a walk, or even in the shower.

    Work Hard, Play Hard Too!
    A ping pong table or boxing corner. These types of employee lounge perks encourage interaction and friendly competition, as well as help to lower stress and absenteeism. Again, “a-ha!” moments come when we least expect them – sometimes taking our mind off our latest work dilemma to do some boxing punches is all we need for our next big breakthrough.

    Everyone works differently, and there’s certainly no wrong way to get things done. That’s why it’s important to get creative and add some variety to the workplace. Make it easy for those who need to get out and bounce ideas off of other coworkers to do so, but be sure to keep some traditional spaces for those who just need to hunker down on their own to crank out their best work. When done right, our office can easily become an extension of the home, the local coffee shop, or wherever else our employees need to go for the promise of productivity.

    In most cases, companies build with technology in mind, not people. And though it does take tech to make a business work, we don’t have to worry about technology’s well-being. When an office is designed well, with the human centric (body and spirit) in mind, employees are happier at work. And if we remember from our humble beginnings, it takes happy people to make a successful company.
