Alternative Workspaces

Get Creative with Impact Office!

It won’t be difficult to imagine a typical office: harsh florescent lighting, grey cubicle walls, the sounds of clicking keyboards and whirring copy machines and, not more than one or two people to be seen. Where is everyone? Well they are well hidden and tucked away in their cubicles, working hard for their company. While this scenario may work for some, others may find a need for a more creative alternative workspace to inspire their best work.

Here are some ideas on how you can furnish and create alternative workspaces in your office!

#1: Going Cubicle Free

Instead of typical, grey and secluded cubicles, try an open system of desks. “Hot desking” as it is commonly known, is an office desk design that keeps all the employees visually and physically connected, sharing desks and work spaces. This type of system will definitely encourage collaborative work. The Bridges II System is a wonderful example of how you can create a uniform office without the cubicles.

#2: Hot Desking

Hot design takes your cubicle free office plan one step further by not assigning desks to specific employees. Instead, the desks or worktops are there for who ever needs it and can be assigned to one or a team as required. Explore our desk systems or perhaps even our boardroom table selection! Who said those large tables had to be reserved for meetings only!

#3: Quiet Lounges

Now this kind of alternative space caters to your employees who would love to work from their couch. By providing quiet lounge areas, employees can choose a space that suits their creative needs in order to be their most productive and inspired. Perhaps a comfortable chair and coffee table will be just the thing for your employees who like to sit cross-legged on a sofa with their computer on their lap. 

#4: Sitting or Standing

A subtle alternative workspace can be found in a desk. Try a height adjustable desk to give your staff the choice of working in either a sitting or standing position. Healthy employees is always a bonus!

#5: Indoor, Outdoor

When the weather is nice and the sun is shining, who really wants to be cooped up indoors. Motivation to work drops to a crawl as people longingly stare out the windows at the blue skies. If you have the option, provide an outdoor working space!
