Modern Office Interiors: Creating Comfortable Working Environments
Offices should be designed to be productive spaces. Part of this involves the interior design, but the
construction methods are just as important and can have a large impact on the overall ambience of
the working environment.
Here are some of the most important things to consider when it comes to office construction to
help you create the most productive environment possible for your employees.
Partitioning defines the space in the office and creates new areas that can be used for a range of purposes. It is particularly useful for dividing up large or open-plan spaces to create separate offices and meeting areas.
Partitioning is practical, simple and cost effective – especially when compared to the alternative of erecting new permanent walls in your office or moving premises. It allows you to adapt your office space as your business grows, and saves you having to relocate because your space distribution is not suitable.
Factors to consider include the acoustic properties of the partitions and how effective they at reducing or absorbing noise levels, their fire resistance qualities and the stability of the partitions. You can choose from a wide range of sizes, styles and colours to complement the office décor including glazed panels to allow for a feeling of light and space.
Suspended ceilings are widely used in modern offices as well as in shops, clubs, warehouses, schools and other businesses. They are often needed so that you can fit the electrics and piping above the ceiling out of the way to create a more attractive space.
They are often quick to install and simple to fit. They can also be a cost-effective solution, and they can provide effective sound proofing. They also allow easy access to the area above when a professional needs to see the electric cables or wiring, and they can often provide good insulation, which can be useful for lowering energy bills.
There are a wide range of options when it comes to flooring in the office. The most important considerations are often the durability of the flooring, the ease of maintenance and the safety features, such as its slip resistance.
Floor tiles are a good option because they are easy to clean, they can be replaced cost-effectively, and there are many styles and patterns available.
Raised floors are another option to consider. This is where an elevated floor is erected in your office to allow you to hide the cables, wiring and more underneath the floor without affecting the appearance of the office. This can be installed at various heights from a few centimetres to over a metre, and the panels can then be removed with ease to access the services beneath.
Mezzanine flooring is also a popular option in offices. This raised flooring solution allows you to create more space in your office, whether you want to add a single level or multiple levels. It is an affordable way to get extra space and make use of areas that are currently not in use without the need to move to a larger office.
