5 Sustainable Design Choices for Your Office Space.
Sustainability is a big part of our cultural zeitgeist but have you thought about ways to be more sustainable when refitting your office space? At Domino Commercial Interiors we want to share 5 easy ways to incorporate sustainable design choices into your office refit.
Look for energy efficient appliances in your workspace, you will not only save money on fuel costs, but also help reduce your carbon footprint. You can also change your bulbs to more efficient LED lighting.
Use recycled and recyclable materials
Look out for recycled and recyclable materials in your refit, they are just as high quality as alternative materials and you can ensure that your space is mindful of the environment in the present as well as for the future.
Maximise natural light and ventilation whenever possible
Utilising natural light and ventilation is both eco sustainable in the long term and has many benefits for users of your space. A study found that employees that worked in natural light increased contributions by about 5-40%, and increases information retention among students.
Consider the lifespan of product you use within the office
When purchasing new office equipment think about how long it will last before it needs to be replaced. By purchasing items with a longer lifespan, you can reduce the amount of waste that your company will generate in the future.
Consider making space for recycling
Having a designated space with recycling bins within your space will encourage users to recycle any waste that they generate within your building. At Domino, we recommend making them accessible and highly visible.
