Ceilings in office spaces – new trends
Modern offices are more and more often open spaces where everyone can work together. In many companies, even bosses have their desks next to employees, thanks to which they can create an atmosphere of one family together and maintain discipline at the same time. However, open spaces have one basic problem – without the use of appropriate acoustic systems, we will be struggling with uncomfortable echoes. New trends in the design of office ceilings come to the rescue.
Acoustic comfort above all else
Large open rooms are characterized by noise, which significantly reduces the acoustic comfort of employees. When planning the renovation of office space, it is worth taking care not only of the designer look of the ceiling but above all its appropriate acoustics. The office’s design should consider the needs of employees who are more stressed and less productive in rooms with increased noise levels.
Monolithic ceilings for offices in the Scandinavian style
An office arrangement in a modern Scandinavian style cannot do without a suspended monolithic ceiling. The monolithic ceiling, one of the hottest trends of the season, is distinguished by the lack of visible joints between the panels. Therefore, the seamless ceiling is a perfect match for modern interiors, especially those dominated by light colors. In addition to aesthetic values, monolithic ceilings are also distinguished by acoustic qualities – they perfectly absorb sound, ensuring comfort for employees.
Loft and rustic offices
Small interiors can be enlarged by revealing the ceiling. This solution will work especially in rustic or loft-style interiors. Exposed lighting, air conditioning, ventilation ducts, pipes, wooden beams, steel structures, and other elements, mainly associated with factories, are now increasingly appearing in offices. When deciding on an exposed ceiling, it is worth using the services of a professional architect who will solve the most important problem of such an investment, which is, again, acoustic comfort. With exposed ceilings, acoustic panels and furniture are most often applied. It is also worth introducing greenery to the office – plants muffle noise, and at the same time have a positive effect on the health and well-being of employees.
