Artsy Furniture

When thinking of a happy and productive office, what’s the first thing that comes into your mind? Probably not furniture. However, studies show that there is an essential correlation between ergonomic, artsy furniture and the role it plays in workplace productivity.

According to research, full-time office employees spend about an average of 8.44 hours each day at work, more specifically, at their workplace, at a desk, or on an office chair. Come to think of it, that’s a whole lot of time spent sitting down and facing the computer! Whether you work in an office, at a coworking space, or even work from home, chances are, you’re still seated on a chair with a desk, tapping on your keyboard all day long. 

While it’s impossible to actually control your workload or the number of tasks you have to accomplish in a day, you can still find ways on how to ease stress, boost productivity, and make things seem so manageable. How? Well, all you really have to do is level up your “desk situation.” Sometimes, your work productivity depends on your environment; the things you see, things you touch, use for work or display on your office table. With that, it’s quite essential to revamp your desk layout and turn it into something more personal, something to serve as your inspiration when working from 8 to 9.

There are quite a few emerging and trending office furniture in the Philippines to choose from in case you’ve been looking for trinkets or displays to add on to your office table. These little pieces of furniture can help boost your productivity and give you some sense of motivation and inspiration, in a way or two. Moving on, here are a few tried and tested factors as to how artsy furniture can improve office productivity:

Increases Comfortability

Picking the right [and sometimes artsy] office furniture can increase employee comfortability. A poorly-designed office table, chair, or couch can give you several back pains, which can later on cause unproductivity. Sitting on a high-quality office chair and working on a desk with enough space will guarantee an increase both in workplace comfortability and work productivity.

More companies today should consider getting comfortable office chairs (such as executive chairs) to minimize the risk of employees suffering from back pains. With that, there’s also fewer employee absences due to medical conditions, as well as an increase and improvement in productivity and efficiency.

Sets the Mood

Ever feel so frustrated without a reason? Have you ever wondered why? Probably because of how your environment lacks enthusiasm, color, and creativity?

Dull and depressing office equipment can greatly affect employee moods, which can then lead to cases of frustration, demotivation, and even depression. Try to spice things up in your office a bit by purchasing quality and creative office furniture like personalized beverage coasters, a small lamp, diffusers or warmers, organizers, and even plants.

Yes, plants are significant contributors to improving office productivity. Plants are known to promote clean air, so you wouldn’t have to worry about not getting enough fresh air just because you’re working, enclosed, within the four walls of your office from 8 to 9. Aside from that, plants give people a sense of calmness, peace, and serenity. So come to think of it, visible plants within the office can help ease employee stress, set their mood right, and improve productivity.

Encourage Creativity

What can get more fun and unique than personalizing your own desk space? Considering that you work from 8 to 9 every Mondays to Fridays, you spend most of your time on your office table than at home! That only means that an uncomfortable and dull workspace can also affect your drive and motivation to finish all tasks within the day.

Since each employee differs from the other, with a completely different taste for design and personal color style, you can try to decorate your own workspace with office furniture and other elements to complement your style and keep you motivated all throughout the day. An example could be your choice of a desktop trash bin, a colorful hanging calendar or planner, an artificial plant, picture frames, and a whole lot more. Don’t be afraid to go crazy, the artsier yet personal your stuff is, the better! For as long as this sparks motivation and inspiration as you work your way through the day.

Sparks Conversation

If you hang up or display artsy and unique pieces of furniture on your workspace or office desk, chances are, it’s going to spark a conversation either between you and a coworker or amongst the rest of your colleagues. Frequently, artsy furniture serves as icebreakers; thus, initiating a discussion between employees within the office. As a result, you also get to improve communicating with your coworkers. With that, there’s better work productivity and collaboration in future projects and tasks to come.

Wrapping Up

In today’s modern age, offices are starting to become more lenient when it comes to decorating and personalizing your workspace. With that, more and more employees gain motivation and inspiration despite the hefty workload for hours from Mondays to Fridays. Forget about old and long gone office cubicle divisions. It’s time to add a little more personality and touch of “you” into your workspace!
