Close your eyes and imagine this office environment; the lighting is dingy and dim, endless rows and rows of cheap metal and fabric cubicles with each desk being more cluttered then the last, and no freedom or space to move about. This is an unhealthy office environment. So, what makes a healthy office environment? In this brief article, we will share how to create the healthiest possible office and why it’s important.
When designing an office space, it’s important to take a number of different factors into account. It’s a common question for any office designer: “Do we want cubicles?”. Well, in short, it’s the year 2020, and design has never been so important when it comes to office spaces. In some senses, cubicles may be outdated, HOWEVER, at Iron Age, we offer a wide array of modern and industrial workstation options, from our IA Cube series to our Carruca Dogbone Workstations. The eclecticism present in our workstation offerings ensures that whether your partial to cubicles or prefer a more communal set up, you’ll be able to find what you need.
While it may not be the first factor that pops into your head, lighting is a detail to be taken seriously. A properly illuminated room not only allows all employees to see everything more clearly and easily, but also provides a more welcoming atmosphere, improving morale and productivity. Better lighting has a catch, however: it exposes the furniture underneath it. That’s where Iron Age Office shines (no pun intended). No matter how bright the environment is, our world class furniture looks second to none.
Lastly, but certainly not least, is the need for organization. Nobody functions well if they’re unable to find what they need when they need it. This why it’s so important to provide your employees with ample storage to keep everything in order. We carry a huge variety of
storage options, from our Credenzas, which come in virtually any dimension you could want, to our Edwin closets, to our mobile pedestals and lateral files. It doesn’t matter what your storage needs are; we will find a way to accommodate them.
Designing a healthy office isn’t easy, but it can be made much simpler if you keep these suggestions in mind. At Iron Age Office, we firmly believe that the highest quality offices birth the highest quality work. Reach out today and see what we can do for you.
