We all want to make the right impression with our office or business space, but not everyone find it easy to choose the right color schemes, furniture, or décor to create that great first impression. Here are a few tips for achieving that distinct yet professional look that will catch and keep a potential client’s attention.
One trick to making the right impression is turning the layout of your office space to your advantage. If your office is pressed for room or cramped repaint in bright, airy colors. Keep any windows uncovered to let in as much natural light as possible. Bring in some healthy live plants, and make sure at least some of them are flowering.
The lighter colors, open shades, and plants will help create the illusion that your office is larger than it actually is. More than that, these changes will lighten the atmosphere for your employees as well. If your space has plenty of room then simply fit the colors to the personality of the office in general. If you and your employees are whimsical and light-hearted those types of colors will work best.Create a tranquil and relaxed office by adding a fountain or water feature. The sound of moving water has a calming effect. Some fountains can even be customized to show the company logo. Nothing soothes like the music of burbling water, and happy workers are productive and efficient workers.
These days the classics that used to mean an upscale and professional office aren’t as popular. Trending and edgy designs and décor seem to have taken a step ahead of the traditional themes. Don’t be afraid to go with all white and black, or even throw in a few splashes of bright red.
Not only have the clichéd choices of the past lost their appeal, but expensive is no longer synonymous with success. Some of the most elegant and appealing environments are simple to the point of being stark.Another trend in decorating ideas is mixing mediums. Combine textures, prints, and geometric shapes at will. Mix and match colors to your heart’s content. Shades and patterns that at one time would have clashed are now paired together with abandon.
Traditional frames for paintings are becoming a thing of the past as well. Many decorators now forego the frame altogether and simply hang the raw canvases for an edgy look. More than anything you need to have fun with your décor. Don’t be afraid to express yourself even if it seems weird and unusual. Sometimes that makes the new look even more interesting.
No matter your personality or the personality of your office in general there is a look that will please you and make that strong first impression that is so important to businesses. Make the most of the more relaxed and open trends today and fill your office with fun and contemporary decorations and colors. You workers will be more relaxed and productive when their environment is more welcoming and open.
