At hardly any other place do we spend as much time each day as at work. A good working atmosphere is especially important to keep you focused and motivated throughout the day. In order to make the workplace practical and appealing, easy-to-implement measures such as color accents on the desk, a new arrangement of work documents and the right light help. These increase well-being in the workplace and create an inspiring working environment. In this post we show you how you can easily get more out of your workplace and set up your office.
Increases the well-being in the workplace through ergonomic office furniture
Whether man or woman, young or old, big or small: Ergonomic office furniture ensures health and well-being, because they can be individually adapted to the needs of each individual. Head, back and shoulder pain – the typical office diseases you say so goodbye! Ergonomic desks and office chairs allow you to easily change your posture multiple times during the day. So you are flexible and can always work comfortably – while sitting and standing.
Your monitors should also adapt to your changing postures. The optimal distance to your face is 50 cm. A monitor support arm system helps you position your monitor easily and flexibly. Desk lights are neglected by many. They make an essential contribution to how fit and efficient we feel at work. Again, the more flexible the better. Novus luminaires are specially optimized for lighting workplaces. They offer a variety of ways to illuminate your workplace optimally.
A little tip: plants also improve the working atmosphere by providing green accents and improving the indoor climate, which has an effect on the ability to concentrate.
Provides a retreat
You have no room to set up a room as a retreat? That’s not bad. Even a cozy sofa corner or a communal table relax the office life and allow you to take a comfortable sitting position. Retreats promote a good team atmosphere. Create inviting retreats where you can talk to each other off the desk! Changing jobs can stimulate your creativity as they invite you to inspiring meetings with colleagues. Nothing stands in the way of the next joint brainstorming session.
Brighten up your workplace and show your colours
Another colorful eyecatcher is colorful office equipment. Staplers and punches from Novus COLOR ID provide a cheerful splash of color on the desk and must not be missing in any office. By choosing different colors, you can choose your favorite color from the COLOR ID office products and customize the workplace.
And while you’re at it, how about a nice wall design? Being surrounded by four white walls for eight hours can quickly depress your mood. Colours are an important factor for well-being in the workplace. When designing the colour scheme, it is important to make sure that all colours have a different effect. While blue, for example, has a calming effect, red is particularly lively. So choose the colours according to the effects you want to achieve. But before you start painting: Ask your supervisor or landlord! Even if you’re not allowed to swing a paintbrush, you can make the walls more friendly with colourful accents in no time at all. With self-designed pinboards and photo walls, every white wall becomes an eye-catcher. You can easily hang your pictures on self-adhesive wall strips and don’t have to drill holes in the wall – they hold well and look great.
Here we show you what you should avoid when decorating your office:
- Too little or unfavourable light: tired eyes and headaches are the unpleasant consequences. Unfavourable light is created, for example, when the desk is positioned awkwardly by the window and the sun dazzles.
- The desk is too small: A desk that is too small leads to stress and distraction because you are littered with objects.
- No plants in the office: Plants improve the room climate and the mood at the workplace.
- Poor or insufficient seating: Incorrect sitting positions lead to problems in the neck, shoulders and back. Ergonomic office furniture prevents health problems.
- Noise in the office: Disturbing noises lead to headaches, exhaustion and lack of concentration.
- Too little storage space: If there are not enough shelves and drawers, rooms are cluttered and give a cramped feeling.
Have fun decorating!
