Every workplace is slightly different, and while certain office spaces can ape or borrow from each other from time to time, there are plenty of ways through which you can apply your own branding touches or thematic choices, should they be practically feasible. Flooring is, of course, massively important in the overall design of your office – and if you are unsure about which option you should take in terms of setting up the floor for your final design, here are a few of our favourite options to help you get started.
While the main focus of office design can revolve around productivity and efficiency – and there’s absolutely no reason why it shouldn’t – design trends have been moving towards focusing on the wellbeing of the individual employee more and more in recent years. In the modern workplace, each and every employee should have their individual worth and role to play – and here at GXI, we know exactly how to make work a more enjoyable, healthy experience for them, while enabling you to seize the results you’re looking for.
Thankfully, finally, creativity is being valued just as much as productivity – on the whole – as business is looking to appeal more and more to younger markets that are evolving beyond all control. The service and marketing techniques that worked for Generation X will not necessarily work so well on Generation Y – and this means that keeping an eye on workplace trends and interior design trends is an absolute must if you are to keep your firm’s head above water in an ever-evolving marketplace.
You may not be getting the most out of your office space – this much is true! Here’s a quick-fire FAQs session to help you learn a little bit more about the office refurbishment process, and how we may be in a position to help you.

These three rules, generally, are golden – meaning that we at GXI Group are well-versed in operating on all of these levels when working alongside a variety of different clients.

Anyone looking for office fit out companies London and beyond may be tempted to think of a rather basic design when it comes to the ‘stereotypical workplace’.

Office builders in 2017 are looking more and more at space as a crucial factor in not only improving the overall aesthetic of basic workplace interior design, but also in helping to harness productivity and boost morale. How does this work? It’s simple science – of course!

When considering an office refurbishment, or hiring office builders to re-imagine your existing workspace, what should be prioritised and what shouldn’t? What areas should you consider focusing on to enhance employee morale, productivity and overall appearance for your brand? As experts in London office refurbishment, our experts here at GXI Group are only too happy to help you narrow down your answers – but there are a few key areas that you should always consider focusing on ahead of any design consultation.
Consider, first of all, your space – how much space do you currently have to work with? How many employees do you house?

When considering your working space, it is important to consider how much you need as a minimum, and if you are currently restricted by any means – this, naturally, will be more than enough sign for you to consider scrapping a few existing fixtures and fittings.

While no comprehensive studies suggest that this is entirely true, here at GXI we still believe that creating a contemporary, spacious and empowering office unit is important as an aid to encouraging office culture to change.
There are many ways in which office culture can change, and while office interiors such as a new lick of paint or a change of furniture may not make a drastic improvement upon employee morale or psyche, it is important to remember that if you are interested in changing the design of your office, you need to consider how you are going to empower your workforce if you wish to significantly change the culture or morale.

An effective office is only as efficient as its employees – and employees are only so inspired by their workspace. After all, a cluttered or choking working environment is hardly inspirational to even the most enthusiastic of employees.

However, what is the reason for the upturn in such office trends? Office design, London and elsewhere, appears to be taking a particular turn. Read More
