    Nowadays, many companies are looking for resting places in their offices, as they have realized that clearing the minds of their employees in an atmosphere of relaxation generates the best ideas, making work performance more effective.

     

    This is why lounge areas have emerged in offices, providing employees with a break from the daily routine to free their minds, foster team spirit, and manage stress.

     

    Often, having a different perspective or being in a less formal environment can help the creative process and encourage an exchange of ideas.

     

    If anything has become clear in recent times, it is that communication and personal relationships in the workplace are key to the well-being of workers and the optimal functioning of companies. 

     

    What is the right furniture for your company's lounge area? 

     

    The furniture for the lounge area should also be carefully thought out and chosen. It is best to use colorful and fun furniture to make the environment comfortable and informal. Some elements that can help you equip this space are:

     

    Break Room Square Table 

     

    This modern piece can make the space look attractive thanks to its simple, easy-to-configure elements. The break room square table is a must-have piece in your lounge area as the space should have a good number of chairs and tables to relax and eat or drink something.

    Office decoration: what you should know about?
    by Gebesa | 29 November 2022 |   Office Furniture   Workplace Design   office decoration

    Decorating an office is a very important task since it is where people spend many hours working,  so having an organized and beautiful space is key.

    In addition, it has been proven that decoration has a direct influence on moods. With good decoration and organization, you can increase productivity and reduce stress.

    Here are some factors to take into account when decorating your office.

     

    • Brightness 

     

    Offices should be bright spaces, always aiming for natural light. Working with natural light reduces visual fatigue, increases productivity, and economically, saves energy.

     

    ilumination-in-offices

     

    It is essential to enhance and optimize the natural light you have: 

     

    • Try to have workstations near large windows that allow natural light to enter.
    • Paint the walls in light tones so that the light bounces off them.
    • Crystal walls allow the entrance of light and bring modernity to the space. 



    • Practicality 

     

    Keeping it simple and practical is essential for a work environment, this way you will avoid overloading the environment and creating unnecessary distractions. 

     

    It is better that the office furniture we use is simple and functional, and do not forget to compliment the space with accessories such as a waste basket, paper tray and bookshelf  (link), or other storage space



    • Comfort

     

    Office furniture can be decorative, but the most important thing is that it is functional and comfortable.

     

    We spend many hours in the office, most of them sitting, therefore the chair must be comfortable and provide support to maintain a good posture. 

     

    comfort-cubicle-offices

     

    The desk should be spacious for comforts, like the pedestal-supported desk that also provides storage, helping to maintain organization and order. 



    • Inspiration 

     

    In the office, we should also think about motivating employees and making the environment more pleasant for everyone in the office. 

     

    • If there is a quote that you find inspiring, place it somewhere prominent. 

     

    • Following the line of the previous one: A presentation board, so that the workers themselves can leave a nice message.

     

    • Adding some small plants in your office can be an excellent way to create a comfortable, natural, and pleasant environment.

    The best office room colors
    by Gebesa | 21 September 2022 |   Office Furniture   Workplace Design   office design trends   office decoration   open office

    Colors affect the mood and concentration of workers.

    Therefore, when painting your office you should pay attention to this; choose those colors that best suit the dimensions of your workspace, the type of activity performed, and the corporate image of your brand and combine them harmoniously and in the right proportions to create a functional environment that invites concentration and is liked by workers and customers.

     

    These are 8 colors to take into account when decorating your office: 


    White: is the most popular color for any workspace. It never goes out of style and brings brightness. White is the safe bet when in doubt, and is one of the perfect colors for the office if it is a small space.

          White-office-room

     

    Gray: This color is trendy, and brings elegance and modernity. It is perfect for an office with new technologies or for meeting rooms.

     

    Orange: This color projects strength, determination, energy, and enthusiasm.

    This color is especially suitable for collaborative environments.

    Orange-office-example

     

    Red: The use of this color is complicated, but when used well it can project determination, prosperity, and power.

    To use this color correctly, you should administer it in small doses when decorating your office.

    Use this color only in areas of relaxation or collaborative environments where extra effusiveness is needed because it is a color that over-stimulates many people.

    Red-details-office-room

     

    Yellow: Related to ingenuity, creativity, science, and understanding. 

    In its most pastel shade, this color can be used without any problem. In its most saturated and bright tonality, it should be used in small proportions and certain spaces (like red), since it is associated with a warning.

    Yellow-office-room

     

    Green: Is a color that projects optimism, serenity, and harmony.

    Its use is recommended in office spaces, such as the meeting room, where tranquility needs to be promoted.

    Green-details-office-room

     

    Blue: The color of serenity, introspection, and concentration.

    The color blue fosters a calm and quiet environment in which workers can concentrate to the maximum and obtain the highest productivity.

     

    Purple: This color reflects luxury, wisdom, and experience.

    It conveys a sense of calm, tranquility, and peacefulness. This color should be used in luminous variants since, in the case of darker purple, it can transmit a feeling of sadness.

    Choosing the right colors when decorating an office is very important, as it will not only affect the aesthetics, but also the comfort and performance of workers.
