OFFICE DESIGN TRENDS FOR 2020
The New Year is a natural time for reflection and to consider how to improve the way we’ve done things in our daily lives and the field of design is no exception! What a great time to review our office design methodologies and consider how we can improve productivity and general experience of our office homes. So, just what are the Office Design Trends for 2020 and how do we implement them into our spaces?
“We all know that the modern workplace is continually evolving and becoming increasingly employee centric with a heightened focus on not just providing staff with the right tools and tech, but also an environment where they can prosper.” Office Design Trends to Watch in 2020. K2, an Office Design resource based in the UK, reflects on what we can expect as the key design factors we will see in the up-to-date office space:
- WORKERS CRAVE NATURAL LIGHT
- SUSTAINABILITY IS KING
- RETRO RENAISSANCE
- RETHINKING THE BOARDROOM
- THE NOOK AND CRANNY – THE UNCONVENTIONAL SPACE
Other commercial office space design trends K2 suggests we watch for this year include:
- Bold colours, prints, even wallpapers are back in vogue – you heard it here first
- Mindfulness will come to the fore as companies look to create workplaces that provide spaces for concentration, study/research and even quiet time + reflection.
- Outdoor working spaces will become more commonplace (this includes rooftops and even balconies.
- Going the extra mile – companies will include spaces designed to be different, to stand out but ultimately to create a competitive advantage when attracting the very best talent. Dedicated gyms, yoga rooms, music rooms for jamming (yes, they exist), and even a sauna.
- A subtle change to the traditional reception to be more concierge or hospitality orientated – we’ve seen a few requests for ‘something different’ for a reception or welcome space but it remains to be seen what shape or form that will take but once we do, we’ll have an article ready.
