According to the recruitment company Jackson Hogg, 49% of UK workers are based in open offices – and while the open office space presents many advantages when compared with the grey cubicle era of workspaces, it still presents some consistent disadvantages.
The open-plan office space can be noisy, with little to no privacy. And while the lack of privacy can help the creative and collaborative juices flow – it can be detrimental to focused project delivery. Also, you have to take into account people work differently – some might relish working in a noisy and chaotic space – but others might prefer a quiet corner where they can knuckle down and complete some of their best work.
Whether you’ve got a small or a large open-plan office space, modular furniture designs can help you cultivate an office environment to be proud of.
These office designs can help shape a chaotic office space into a creative and thriving hub.
It makes use of every inch of your office
The great thing about modular office furniture is that its versatility means it can slot into any office space. You can configure your furniture however you want to ensure you and your employees get the most out of it.
Over the last five years, workplace trends have had to adjust dramatically to reflect the changes in mass office culture. Offices are now offering flexible working, and aspiring to offer a collaborative working environment for their employees.

Just because your office is small doesn’t mean you can’t have impactful office designs. There are many tips and tricks you can implement to use the space as cleverly and as uniquely as possible.
We’ve gathered together three furniture solutions for small offices below, to help inspire your creativity.
Work can be a drag. Particularly if you feel you’ve got too much work to do or you hate your office environment. It can be hard to self-motivate, but most of the time, it’s down to you to get the best out of yourself on a day-to-day basis.
So how can you become immediately more productive at work?
Height adjustable desks are not new; famous, future looking organisations have been using them for quite a few years now. (Think Facebook, Twitter, Google.) However, the standing desk has yet to become truly mainstream in offices up and down the country.
If your organisation is planning an office move or redesign, it’s worth considering if standing desks could be incorporated.
