14th February 2023
Everyone knows that January is just a trial month for the new year – February is when you really start making moves. Is one of your goals for this year to design or revamp your office?
Read on for our list of must-have items for office interiors in the UK.
Plants, Plants, Plants!
There are studies that show that plants have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing, which makes them a must for having in the workplace, where stress-levels can be high. Being around plants can help people feel more relaxed and calm, which contributes to a welcoming, happy working environment. Brighten up your office interior with some greenery – Beards and Daisies have some fantastic foliage and more for your workspace.
Commercial Coffee Machine
‘I don’t need caffeine to start my work day’ – said no one ever. The days are gone from having a kettle and a pot of instant coffee in the office (we know you’re better than that). Invest in a commercial coffee machine so that your employees, and any other office visitors, can indulge in quality specialty coffee on the daily. Little things like providing quality refreshments in the workplace can really boost morale, as your staff will feel more cared for, and will be more inclined to come into the office. Shop our wide range of commercial coffee machines, perfect for any office interiors in the UK, here.
Staying hydrated is key to keeping focussed when working. Motivate your team to drink their H2O with an office water cooler or dispenser. Choose from an array of stylish designs to suit your office interior, plus options for chilled, ambient, sparkling and hot water. Plus, everyone knows that the most productive conversations at work happen at the water cooler. Browse our range today.
In a busy office, it can be difficult to find a quiet area to take calls or get some much needed focus time without any distractions. Installing sound-proof booths or pods in the office is a must to make sure your employees have everything that they need to work effectively when in the office. Increase productivity for your business – Agilita has some great options, check them out here.
A must-have for every office is an area where your staff can sit and relax on a break. Break areas are also great for having conversations with employees where you don’t want them to feel under-pressure or intimidated – keeping the environment comfortable and casual will help them to relax into the conversation, and open up if needed. Make your break room the ultimate rest stop with comfy chairs or sofas, a table and chairs set, and all your kitchen essentials including a coffee machine, hot tap, microwave and more.
Desks with the ability to adjust to standing height are becoming more popular, and for good reason! Adjustable desks help to encourage better posture when working, and reduce the risk of chronic pain in the future. They’re ideal for those who already suffer from back or joint pain, and giving employees the ability to work in whatever way is comfortable for them shows that you care about their needs.
Working in an office, you spend a lot of your time sitting at a desk. Having supportive, comfortable chairs that help to maintain good posture is crucial for your employees physical and mental wellbeing. How can you expect people to want to come into the office if the have to give up comfort for 8 hours, 5 days a week?
You might be thinking, ‘Is this really a necessity?’, but let us paint you a picture. You have a big potential client come in for a meeting, and it’s vital that you make a good impression. They come in and sit down, and you offer them a drink to which they accept. You go to make them a drink, but luck is not on your side – the only mug left in the cupboard is the one that Dave’s wife from finance got him for Valentine’s Day with the extremely inappropriate slogan. Your only options are to give the client their drink in the raunchy mug, or let them go thirsty.
