Design trends have changed over the last few years, and commercial interiors are now designed using a number of strategies described below.
Instead of relying on tried and true designs for commercial interiors, designers are now matching quirky patterns together to make each space different.
Designs with More than One Purpose
Designing with purpose in mind is another design trend for commercial interiors. One example would be a bench seating area, with file cabinets or other storage below the seats.
Environmentally Friendly Designs
The environment is a big concern for commercial builders and designers. Using materials that are eco-friendly, such as bamboo flooring, radiant heating, and solar panels for electricity are all ways building designs have become less harmful for the environment.
Less Cubicles, More Communal Work Spaces
Today’s worker doesn’t want to hide away in a small cubicle. Commercial interiors are now being designed with communal work areas in mind. If desks are separated by partitions, they tend to be lower so that workers can see over them. Areas where several people can work at the same time are becoming a trend in many office spaces.
Ergonomic, Functional Office Furniture
Office furniture should be both functional yet comfortable for the employee, and today’s design trends are reflective of this. You can expect to see adjustable desk chairs with comfortable arm rests, desks that you can stand at if you choose, and solid, well-made office furniture that stands up to regular use.
Large Geometric Patterns
The design trend for today is large, bold geometric patterns that are meant to be eye-catching. Large patterns make a statement, and add uniqueness to the design within. Large geometric patterns are used on walls, carpets, and floor tiles in many commercial settings.
Deep Gray and Black Tones
While earth tones were popular for a number of years, now deep, cooling tones in gray or black are the predominant color used in commercial design at Construction by Daniels.
