Office Space Designs - The Good, the Bad & the Downright Ugly

The affect a person's working environment has on their level of productivity is much more pronounced than we often stop to consider. A bad office space design can often lead to a worker being faced with distraction(s), low productivity, stress, and can even lead to them developing unsavoury work ethics.


Conversely, an office space design where a person is comfortable, happy and secure can lead to the complete opposite. This is why when planning your office space it is crucial to carefully consider how to create an environment in which you and your work force can produce the best results possible. At Andrews Office Furniture, we know this to be the case, so thought it would be enlightening and amusing to find examples of some of the more extreme cases; from the good, to the bad, right the way through to the downright ugly!

Here's what we found during our snooping:

The Sleek and Modern Office Space Design

There's nothing quite like smooth, straight lines, a well-lit space, and a photo of your favourite movie icon to help you get into that productive groove. A sharp and modern office space also helps you to feel ahead of the curve, and determined to keep it that way.



The Generic Open Plan Office Space Design

Without a speck of character, the generic open plan office space has been proven to lessen productivity in recent academic studies. And that's only partly because you can't tell the difference between your desk and your colleague's!

The Innovative Workspace

Every now and then some bright spark comes up with an ingenious way to make their office space into a haven of comfort and positivity. One example is the wooden log cabin office space design, which has transformed remote log cabins into private offices. It allows you to get away from all distractions, and its cozy too.

The Eye Sore

Every now and then you'll encounter an office that has such a horrendously offensive colour scheme or furniture decor that it makes you feel like curling up in a ball, closing your eyes, putting your fingers in your ears and rocking back and forth. Don't forget the mindless chanting. Chanting with the hope that you might magically conjour Perses, the mythical Greek god of destruction, to come and burn it down to the ground for you.

The Room with a View

There's nothing quite like a calming and relaxing view to help motivate you to tuck into some serious work. The thought of a break-time stroll in the winter snow has also got to keep those spirits up.


The Cluttered Mess

Those who lack organisation or basic cleanliness can turn any office interior, regardless of style or colour scheme, into a complete mess, if left to their own devices. Here at AOF, we have seen some humdingers that would make a sloth turn its nose up!

The Classic Office Space Design

Slightly old fashioned, perhaps, but certainly worth its salt, the classic office office space is rich and warm, putting its occupant at ease, allowing them to focus on calculating those figures, or organising those pesky files. The classic style will probably be around for a very long time to come. 

The Cattle Pen

Thank whichever god you prefer that office space designs like the seemingly-never-ending-line-of-cubicles style are quickly dying out. How anyone can get anything done when you are constantly bombarded with the body odour of your less-than-desirable colleague is beyond thinking about.
