Many things have drastically changed in the past years, especially during the pandemic. Thus, the changes also affect the way we work and how we view a suitable workplace.
It has been a challenge to adapt to our new work setups, so many design experts have found ways to innovate and transform the old pre-pandemic offices into spaces beaming with innovation and productivity that will complement and facilitate the post-pandemic situation.
Here, we’ll showcase the newest office space trends for this year and beyond.
The ‘Home Vibe’ Office Setup
During the COVID19 pandemic, most of us have been forced to leave our corporate offices and work in isolation under our roofs. Surprisingly this setup has become more comfortable for most of us. Hybrid arrangements have become more and more popular, and others even opt or choose to stay from their work-from-home setups.
This has become a challenge for our corporate offices to bring the home vibe that their workers had the luxury in their homes for the past years during the pandemic. Adding some elements like sofas, armchairs, pillows, and other home furniture can bring that ‘work-at-home vibes that we loved.
Adapting to New Technologies and AI Concepts
This was introduced by Mark Zuckerberg of the famous META, stating that the concepts of AI and virtual elements are the future workplaces for humans. Well, that may be true, but still, that’s for the future to tell. Anyway, technology has been evolving so fast, and office trends have also evolved faster due to the pandemic. Let’s dive into the available technologies that are in trend this year and are actually being used by modern offices.
Smart offices provide new and smart technologies that are convenient and usable for everyone in the office. These smart technologies are super useful and can be a lot of functions. Voice recognition and motion sensor devices allow people to interact with their surroundings without touching any switches or remotes. Thus, maintaining security while enhancing health and safety is easy and convenient.
The Nature-Friendly / Biophilic Designs
There’s no argument; working with nature increases the productivity of everyone by a significant amount of percentage. Not just that it boosts our production, but it also improves our physical and psychological well-being as a person.
Plants actually provide a lot of health benefits:
- ● Reducing stress and anxiety

- ● Improving air quality ( by boosting oxygen levels and lowering co2)
- ● Reduces fatigues
There can be a lot of ways to make an office a lot greener, from adding potted plants on every corner to hanging minimalist plants or just by putting that cute little succulents on your table.
These are the plants we recommended for indoors as it offers a lot of benefits and is low in maintenance:
- ● Peace lily
- ● Snake plant
- ● Cast iron plant
- ● Pothos
- ● Air plants
- ● Philodendron
Artworks Never Fade
No matter what era it is, artworks never fail to attract and calm our minds. It inspires and boosts our creativity just by looking at it. There is a variety of artworks that we can decorate in our offices, like antique vases, figurines, sculptures, etc. It showcases our inner artistic self while also giving them hints of what we really want or what we love.
Paintings are the most common artworks we see, and we know just how valuable they are, not just how much they costs but also the vibe they give. This year, paintings are still will remain in the future.
Most of the time, during work hours, we’ve been staring at those boring walls. Wall covering was a brilliant idea. Woods as covers are famous this year; it’s easy to install and changes the ambiance of the room in an instant. By adding cover walls, you don’t just showcase your creativity but also the culture and the vibe you want to give off.
Renovating the old and boring tiles and flooring can change a lot too. Try to choose what matches your wall coverings and other designs.
Artwork doesn’t just motivate the staff and workers around but also the clients and other people; they will surely appreciate it.
Flexible Furniture Designs for a Dynamic Workspace
For the past two years, a lot has changed in the way we work; we have become more flexible than ever. The hybrid setups and working on isolation taught as many lessons. It allows us to discover new things that are also convenient and flexible that work well with the situation.
Pods have become popular during the start of the pandemic, are still popular today, and still will be in the future. It gives a sense of space, privacy, and security. Allowing us to work independently with less disturbance, especially during virtual meetings and appointments that need more privacy and comfort.
Smaller Tables and Moving Chairs
We used to have those big tables and wooden chairs before, but after the way we work changed, we have proven that we need more flexibility and convenience to be more productive. Smaller tables give us more space for other things and activities, while moving chairs allows us to move easily from our desktops to the meeting tables or to where we want to go.
Foldable and Adjustable Furniture Designs
There are lots of furniture available in the market today that has multiple purposes. Foldables chairs that can be used as a bed, adjustable tables, chairs, and other multi-purpose furniture and appliances
Well, this one is not costly, just adding some spaces for light to illuminate the space or simply moving away that huge furniture near the window to allow the sunlight. Natural lights give us more comfort and a sense of space.
Our offices and workplace are constantly evolving, like anything. It just became expedited due to the recent pandemic. What used to be convenient before may be unsuitable for our situations today. Adapting to these new trends gives you ideas of what is suitable these days.
We believe that people value convenience, flexibility, and safety these days. People quickly adapt to changes, so we should also choose things and workplaces that suit our needs and make us more productive.
