Relaxation and work go hand in hand. If your team doesn’t have a place in your office where they can unwind, they will not use their time as effectively. Make your office feel more welcoming by bringing together a functional, versatile lounge space.
Lounge Room Furniture Ideas
Hello Raye can help you start brainstorming the commercial lounge space ideas that will suit your business best. Use the following strategies to really bring your company’s chill space together!
1. Strive for Comfort
Of course, the workplace should be a productive one, but employees still need the opportunity to unwind. While you’re developing your furniture package, keep comfort in mind. Sofas long enough for multiple employees and chairs for short-term rest will help make informal collaboration more enjoyable. Even tables that allow for reasonable legroom can transform a functional lounge space into a comfortable one.
2. Embrace Variety
Uniform designs are great for some things, but variety is the name of the game in today’s corporate lounge area. Deliberate variety in the types of furniture you have in these spaces (in terms of color, pattern and function) drives the eye around the room, making your team engage with the space you’ve created. What’s more, a wide selection of furniture pieces helps make your lounge space comfortable for people of all types.
3. Look for Multi-Purpose Additions
While stand-alone furniture elements are excellent centerpieces in a lounge, it’s often beneficial to include furniture that can serve multiple purposes at once. Sofas and chairs that can change configurations and occasional tables that you can bring together are not only quirky, but they’re also practical. These flexible pieces demand engagement from your employees while also keeping budget in mind by not needing to specify multiple pieces to serve multiple purposes. What’s not to love?
4. Seek Out Sustainable Options
With more organizations committing to sustainable practices, and even specific goals such as the Living Building Challenge, eco-friendly furniture is essential. If you’re looking to reduce your project’s carbon footprint while also bringing new life to a lounge, consider what sustainable furniture can do for your project or clients. Pieces made out of recycled content can add a unique pop to a space while also contributing to a compelling story. Hello Raye has a number of different filter options related to sustainable or healthy practices to help you narrow your search.
