A major factor in creating this type of environment is the comfort levels. Being at work for 8+ hours a day, it’s an obvious requisite that employees need to feel at ease in order to produce their best work. It’s the home, of course, that is the ultimate place in which we can feel comfortable and relaxed, and it’s this feeling that forward thinking businesses are wanting to recreate within the design of their offices.
Why are office interiors in Westminster starting to look (and feel) more like home?
The saying, there’s no place like home was generally popularised with the timeless children’s novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and has become a common utterance for those whenever they’re in/have returned from a place that doesn’t reflect the safe and comfortable nature provided by their home. The phrase is believed to have been coined around the 14th century when ‘family’ as an institution started to take root, as people who shared a common bond realised that they were only at ease in the home. As a result, home life became more important to people; so more thought was placed into how they could make it unique to them, to make it a place where their family would feel safe and want to spend time there. Out of this, a unique culture and philosophy grew in families that spanned generations. The home is no longer just a place ‘we live in’.
In today’s world, the meaning of family has grown beyond those who we share a house with and those whose blood we share. Being in a family requires devotion, understanding and togetherness as everyone works together to achieve a common goal. These are the precise feelings that many a business wants to reflect within their workspaces; any great office interiors in Westminster is a place that is unique to the personal needs/tastes of the business and its employees. By creating these feelings, a business will be striving to foster a bond amongst their employees, and them being part of the family, is a belief will help to drive everyone on to achieve great things together.
