5 Commercial Interior Design Trends in Sydney for 2023
Creative commercial interior design in office spaces help to create a unique, enjoyable place to work for all employees while impressing any clients or business partners that visit. The key is finding the right balance between functionality and aesthetics.
At Vestra, our expert commercial interior designers are on top of the latest trends when it comes to office fit outs in Sydney. Below, we look at some of the most popular trends for commercial interiors in 2023.
Introducing nature to indoor spaces is a great way of creating visual impact while contributing to a calming environment. Adding greenery such as potted plants, hanging gardens, vertical gardens and even edible gardens to your office space is becoming more and more popular. In addition to looking great, indoor plants improve air quality while boosting mood and productivity.
2. Natural Light
Lighting plays a significant role in employee engagement, wellbeing and productivity. A lack thereof of can lead to eye strain, fatigue and headaches. Ensure you maximise access to natural sunlight to boost productivity, energy and creativity, while reducing the cost of running your own lights.
You can maximise sunlight in your commercial office design by angling the layout of workspaces towards windows and using open plans designs to allow light to flow through.
While open plan offices, hot desking and collaborative spaces at work have been all the rage over the past few years in commercial interiors, we’re seeing more demand now for quieter spaces. With loud conversations to ringing phones and tapping keyboards, office spaces are loud.
Adding quiet work spaces to allow focused, deep concentration on work can provide escapes from constant distraction, improving productivity and reducing stress. Solutions range from enclosed rooms to office pods and soundproofed spaces sectioned off using furniture and plants.
4. Ergonomic Furniture
Adjustable sit/stand desks, saddle chairs, kneeling chairs and even desk treadmills: there is a range of increasingly popular ergonomic furniture designs that promote better posture and offer opportunities for incidental movement.
With all of us spending more time than ever sitting for work and leisure, there’s an increased focus on improving our health by including ergonomic furniture in a commercial interior fit out. Encouraging movement throughout the day can also increase productivity and improve energy levels.
5. Smart Technology
We’re seeing everything from cord-free video conferencing and digital signage to touchless solutions and automatic lights. It’s evident that commercial fitout technology is rapidly evolving. Once considered cutting edge luxuries, many of these technologies are becoming commonplace in the office.
Digital signage, for example, can be used for internal communications in staff areas or promotion and branding in foyers and reception areas. Meanwhile, “Internet of Things” tools add convenience and security by automating, remotely controlling and tracking functions such as air conditioning, lights, blinds, energy, alarms, security cameras and door locks.
