The Fabric of your Environment

Incorporating elements of texture into your office space can transform it from cold and rigid, to warm and comfortable!

Regardless of whether your workplace encourages customer visits and interactions, having a decent place for people to sit is important.

Soft seating in collaborative spaces can turn a formalised meeting into an environment where everyone feels relaxed and ready to contribute ideas. It is also a fantastic way to add colour into an office or reception area and utilise company colours and branding. Many visitor chair options can accommodate fabric seat pads onto a moulded base.

There is also a range of products that allow you to brighten up a workspace with textural fabric wall features and acoustic panels with multidimensional effects. Bringing a little bit of home comfort into an office environment can do wonders for moral!

Fabric doesn’t have to mean difficult to clean or harbouring bacteria. Crypton is a common choice for the hospitality and healthcare industries. It is 100% recycled polyester and provides a permanent moisture barrier. It also provides stain resistance, odour control and microbial protection.

There are a multitude of options when considering applying soft furnishing elements into your workspace. So make comfort a priority and apply fabric elements as a key part in your next office revamp!

Get creative with colour

Transform your office by using colour to boost your mood and well-being

Do you spend most of your day in a dark office cubicle or facing blank, grey, lifeless walls? This could be drastically affecting your productivity as colours can trigger moods, stimulate creativity and influence your overall feeling of well-being.

Bringing excitement and colour into your office doesn’t have to mean a total makeover! You can transform your office space into a vibrant environment using some simple ideas such as coloured pin boards or desk screens, plants and greenery, upholstered office chairs, coloured stationery that aligns with your brand, painted feature walls or some art.

Different colours have diverse effects on our moods, so make sure you select the colour that’s fit for your purpose.

Red                                                                    

Trying to draw attention or create urgency in a particular area? Red is an active and high intensity colour. It is vibrant and energetic, but can be overwhelming and startling when overused.

Yellow

Boost your creativity and emotional response by incorporating yellow into your workspace. It is a colour of optimism and can stimulate imagination and ingenuity, making it ideal for designers, artists, developers or writers!

Green

As a colour of calm and balance, green is said to aid your intake and recall of information. If you work long hours, incorporate green into your workspace to counteract sluggishness and improve your focus.

Blue

Much like green, blue is a low-wavelength colour and lowers your heartrate by soothing and calming you. If your job is brain intensive and requires a lot of focus, blue is an excellent colour to level out stress and improve productivity.
