The creation of a comfortable, highly productive workspace, is something of an inexact science.
The old adage, ‘you can’t please everyone’ applies particularly – which is fair, given the vast kaleidoscope of minds and personalities that no doubt make up your staff contingent.
So, the inexactness of it would then be that not everything you do within a workspace may meet every comfort and need. But the science of it is to find a happy medium – to create minimalist spaces that help employees declutter, destress and maintain focus.
But what about the fact that many aren’t in the office right now? The new work-from-home directive has seen to that, so you may be thinking then why you would even need to be pondering the aesthetic of a largely empty office.
Well, two facts stand. The first is that directives regarding the pandemic, lockdown and isolation are changing slightly – many, under the confines of safety and health protocol will be slowly emerging and coming back to the office.

The second is that even though the majority will still be home, they may not know how to create a superior, tranquil workspace – you can assist with these top tips.

They need to be comfortable and able to focus wherever they sit down, switch on and prepare to do what it is they do best.
