When one considers renovations of office space, we consider the size of rooms and the flow. We consider the wall colour and materials. One thing that is very important to remember and consider is your flooring. Colour, material, and patterns of flooring can all change the way a space feels, which can affect how it functions. Check out some fantastic floor design ideas for your newly renovated office space.
Making it Feel Like Home
We’ve talked about this before, and how residential-style flooring has made its way into the office. Highly durable materials made to look like residential finishes give your space a real home away from home appeal. When a person feels like they’re at home, they feel comfortable, and a comfortable employee is a productive employee.
Consider the Colours
There is evidence that suggests colours affect mood. When you consider colours for your flooring, think about what type of services you offer, and how your employees work. An accounting firm with a strong focus on analytics and numbers may benefit from a dark red tone, while blue has been known to have a calming effect on creative types such as in a marketing agency.
If your office renovations are leaving you with large open spaces, it’s good to consider ways to break those spaces up, not with physical walls, but with virtual walls. Signify changes in spaces by changing the pattern of the flooring. Even something as subtle as the direction it flows in can help people understand, subliminally or otherwise, that this is a new “room”.
These are just a few of the many ways you can up your flooring game at the office. Do you have questions, or want to start your next project? Reach out and let us know! We’d LOVE to help!
