    Office Design Trends for 2019:

    Today, the design of your workplace plays an integral role in your business’ success. New technology parallel to new office design trends is being implemented with each passing year. This constant change brings fresh ideas and new design opportunities for your office or commercial space.

    New office design trends are created by experimenting and innovating new concepts and ideas. Workplace designing have had many innovative trends that were popular in 2018. The office design trends for 2019 only seem to grow with its strong base ideas exponentially.

    Here are some inspiring office design trends for 2019.  

    Macro Trends

    For the coming year, macro trends include a ‘physical-experience-space’ which means there are spaces that focus on physical amenities like meditation, wall climbing, acupressure walks, espresso bars, etc. This trend focuses on improving and enhancing workplace experiences for interns and executives alike. Other than these experience-driven spaces, macro trends also include some co-working space features like multi-purpose meeting areas, light and mobile furniture, portable green walls, indoor houseplants and greenery in almost all niches, trendy privacy screen designs, etc.

    Macro trends also include vertical gardens and moss walls in all corridors and empty walls. This idea has been popularly implemented in 2018. How do you take this further? Don’t limit yourself to just walls! You could also have green branding cues where your brand logo can be embossed on various materials like teak wood along with living or moss walls and vertical gardens.

    Using exposed wood in furniture is another macro trend that will be taken forward in 2019. Exploring other material options are like the perfect match in creating multifunctional furniture, collapsible furniture, and portable partitions.

    Old Meets New

    office design trends

    The trend that once fell out of favour has now been resurrected into popularity. Some designers specialize in breathing life into old-fashioned furniture with carvings of a long-vanished era of trends. ‘Old meets New’ is a promising trend that combines rough, exposed aesthetic materials with cutting-edge technology. This trend includes combinations of these features:

    • Weathered and antique textures
    • Old world craftsmanship like carvings
    • Glass and metals instead of dead wall partitions
    • Modern furniture with antique materials

    Abstract Patterns

    Plain, old, single-solid colors are now long gone. Abstract geometric forms and evocative patterns have barged into workstation walls, lobbies, hallways, conference rooms, and even restrooms of offices globally. Abstract design patterns encroach design structures like the ceiling, flooring, beams, etc. created with materials like veneer, metal frames, marble, ceramic tiles, etc. Abstract patterns could form illustrated artworks as well.

    The image is an example of how abstract geometric shapes along with different materials are being used to create interesting designs on a dead wall of an office space.

    If you wish to implement any of these office design trends in your workplace or you have preferences other than the ones mentioned above, you can get in touch with Motivo Design. We suggest and provide trendy space planning ideas, lighting layouts, material selection with sourcing, and many other commercial designing services.

    What to look for in a residential designer:

    You may dream of buying and remodelling your new home with the modernist features or have a complete makeover to your existing home. You may comprehensively research about all of the latest furniture ideas, trendy interior materials, and of course inspirational interior designs. But have you considered the right person to do the job?

    Redesigning and remodelling your house can be overwhelming when it comes to envisioning the various steps involved in residential designing and interior decorating. The first essential step is to find the best residential designer. Residential designers and architects bring imaginations and design ideas into virtual and physical reality.

    These are some things you need to consider while choosing the right residential designer.

    Website Listings

    You need to search online sources to contact and discover residential designers depending on the kind of services they provide. You could browse through a web directory of designers and architects to discover your designer. The website listings will suggest you qualified and experienced designers to contact and work with. The listings provide you with complete addresses of the residential designer office, their official website, their registration number with the government, and a preview of their projects.

    Ratings and Reviews

    Check for reviews from the designer’s existing customers. Reading them will give you insights about the customer’s experience with the designer. Good and excellent reviews suggest the designer has finished the project with the client’s complete satisfaction. You also understand the design techniques the designer has used in creating blueprints and drafting plans according to client’s specifications. Choosing a designer with good ratings is essential as they will maintain the same excellence with your interior project as well.

    Design Approach

    Every residential designer has different methods of approaching their designs ideas and drafting plans. Each designer follows a specific style and theme in their projects. Once you have researched and decided the style and theme you wish to have in your interior decor, you can browse through designers that used the same style in their project. If the design approach of the interior designer matches to yours, it becomes easier for the designer to start the home redecoration process with space planning. Also, ensure you have chosen an ‘independent’ designer for your project. Independent designers have their contractors and labourers through which you don’t need to search for a contractor to collaborate with your designer separately.

    Experience and Specialization

    Your project is going to provide an opportunity for interior designers to provide unique customized outcomes. Choose experienced residential designers to work on your project as they have tested and proposed designs using various modern materials and techniques. Experienced designers maintain parameters and standards in all their projects developing a unique specialized design service that they excel in.

    The final stage of your selection process could be communicating with your selected set of designers. Consider Motivo Design to be one of your chosen residential designers. You can get in touch with us for more information on home renovations.

    How Can You Make Your Medical Practice More Inviting?:

    Doctors work long shifts where they barely find any time for breaks. Even if they do have a moment to spare, they rest in poorly designed call rooms on a stiff mattress. Such bad design has raised concerns among several medical professionals.

    Now, just imagine the effects of being in such an atmosphere on patients that are going through prolonged treatments for life-threatening disorders and also on their family members.

    We all know that it’s impossible to take away all the pain and suffering but we can at least build a relaxing atmosphere for the patients. A colourful and attractive medical practice design can help the patient feel a little better. For starters, choose a colour scheme or a theme for your clinic or hospital. Along with the theme, you can follow these tips to make your medical practice more inviting.

    A Dope Lobby

    Your lobby creates the first impression of your medical practice. You should have an organized lobby with a spacious layout for reception and seating area. Plus, add some colours to your walls, and place some potted plants in every other corner to send out a “welcome-vibe.” And, you can install a circular reception desk where the receptionists can address multiple patients and doctors at once.

    A Chilled Out Waiting Room

    One of the most important aspects of medical practice design is your waiting room. Your waiting room needs comfortable chairs, updated magazines and newspapers, charging slots and chargers along with a space-friendly layout. And, you can improve the patients’ waiting experience by providing free WiFi, installing a TV, and placing some massage chairs. Also, hang some artworks on the walls which artsy patients can admire while they wait.

    An Awesome Doctor’s Room

    An awesome doctor’s room can leave a positive impact on the patient. Comfortable chairs and beds should be your first priority when you consider designing your doctor’s room. Your doctor’s room should have positive health charts that display information about having a good diet, exercising regularly, statistics about good health, and many more. Again, a combination of bright colours and potted plants can lighten the mood of the doctor and the patients.

    An Amazing Parking Space

    A major issue many patients might face is limited parking space. And, for patients with disabilities, it’s a necessity to travel by cars. So, plan for a sufficient parking space with handicap spots outside your clinic.

    If you want to renovate your medical practice or you are planning to create a more inviting space for your patients, reach out to us.We have experienced designers who have the expertise to design the perfect medical practice for you.

    Motivo was very creative when they worked on our project, they delivered on time and expanded our view on designing and laying out our shop equipment. We strongly recommend them for their great service and the value provided.

    M. Chahrour, CFE CEO of ME franchising

    Ayant un Cabinet dentaire à rénover et relooker, et n’ayant que peu de temps à y consacrer, j’ai fait appel, un peu par hasard, à ‘…”..”……d’Intérieurs pour m’accompagner dans ce projet. Ce choix s’est avéré particulièrement judicieux et j’ai beaucoup apprécié leur professionnalisme. Une architecte très compétent. Cette collaboration a été positive à tous les niveaux, qu’il s’agisse de l’agencement des espaces, de recommandations sur différents produits, de conseils en décoration intérieure ou encore du suivi de chantier (avec une entreprise générale particulièrement compétente et rigoureuse). Au-delà de leurs qualités professionnelles, ils sont d’un relationnel extrêmement agréable et font preuve d’une vraie disponibilité. En résumé, une première expérience pleinement réussie et appréciée. » B.Kayssieh
