Office set up - from 0 to 100 to dream office

At hardly any other place do we spend as much time each day as at work. A good working atmosphere is especially important to keep you focused and motivated throughout the day. In order to make the workplace practical and appealing, easy-to-implement measures such as color accents on the desk, a new arrangement of work documents and the right light help. These increase well-being in the workplace and create an inspiring working environment. In this post we show you how you can easily get more out of your workplace and set up your office.

Increases the well-being in the workplace through ergonomic office furniture

Whether man or woman, young or old, big or small: Ergonomic office furniture ensures health and well-being, because they can be individually adapted to the needs of each individual. Head, back and shoulder pain - the typical office diseases you say so goodbye! Ergonomic desks and office chairs allow you to easily change your posture multiple times during the day. So you are flexible and can always work comfortably - while sitting and standing.

Your monitors should also adapt to your changing postures. The optimal distance to your face is 50 cm. A monitor support arm system helps you position your monitor easily and flexibly. Desk lights are neglected by many. They make an essential contribution to how fit and efficient we feel at work. Again, the more flexible the better. Novus luminaires are specially optimized for lighting workplaces. They offer a variety of ways to illuminate your workplace optimally.
A little tip: plants also improve the working atmosphere by providing green accents and improving the indoor climate, which has an effect on the ability to concentrate.

Provides a retreat

You have no room to set up a room as a retreat? That's not bad. Even a cozy sofa corner or a communal table relax the office life and allow you to take a comfortable sitting position. Retreats promote a good team atmosphere. Create inviting retreats where you can talk to each other off the desk! Changing jobs can stimulate your creativity as they invite you to inspiring meetings with colleagues. Nothing stands in the way of the next joint brainstorming session.

Retreats are not only suitable for creative team meetings, but also for concentrated work phases in individual work. Who does not know that? The whole day there is excitement in the office: the colleague makes a loud phone call all morning and a constant background noise is the printer. How should one still have a clear idea and concentrate on his tasks? Retreats are welcome offers to focus on your own tasks.

Embellish your workplace and confess color

Do you spend most of your working time at a drab desk? A comfortable workspace does not have to be expensive and expensive. A few personal pictures or items will help you beautify your place of creation. With your own favorite cup and a few pictures from the last vacation, the work is much more fun. Or how about some fresh flowers? This makes every job much more comfortable. In addition, flowers bring color to the office.

Another colorful eyecatcher is colorful office equipment. Staplers and punches from Novus COLOR ID provide a cheerful splash of color on the desk and must not be missing in any office. By choosing different colors, you can choose your favorite color from the COLOR ID office products and customize the workplace.

And while you're at it: how about a nice wall design? Being eight hours surrounded by four white walls can quickly depress the mood. Colors are an important factor for well-being in the workplace. In the color design, you must make absolutely sure that all colors look different. While blue, for example, has a calming effect, red has a particularly lively effect. So choose the colors according to the effects you want to achieve. But before you start painting, ask your supervisor or landlord! Even if you can not swing the brush, you can make the walls friendly in a flash with color accents. With self-designed pin boards and photo walls, every white wall becomes an eye-catcher. You can easily hang your pictures on self-adhesive wall strips and do not have to drill holes in the wall - they look good and look great.

What you should avoid when setting up your office, we show you here:


  1. Too little or unfavorable light: Exhausted eyes and headaches are the unsightly consequences. Unfavorable light is produced, for example, when the desk is unfavorably at the window and the sun is dazzling.
  2. The table is too small: too small a table leads to stress and distraction, because one is littered with objects.
  3. No plants in the office: plants improve the indoor climate and the mood in the workplace.
  4. Poor or inadequate seating: Incorrect seating positions cause neck, shoulder and back problems. Ergonomic office furniture prevents damage to health.
  5. Noise in the office: Disturbing noises lead to headaches, exhaustion and a lack of concentration.
  6. Too little storage space: If there are not enough shelves and drawers, rooms are overloaded and give a tight feeling.

    Have fun setting up!
