It’s late summer—and employees are taking time off work in droves.

Meanwhile, you are left at the office…basking in the quiet, or wishing you could be doing the same as your colleagues.

Don’t despair. Their temporary absence presents a perfect opportunity to do office renovations on your commercial workspace!

But first, check out these two hot trends hitting office design:

#1 – Flexibility is key

According to this Fast Company article, 2016 is the year for “the end of permanent layouts.”

Gone are the days of the stagnant, fortress-like cubicle. Businesses are now looking for multipurpose workspace designs that can change “on demand,” offering a variety of looks and feels.

#2 – It’s all about employee health

This Forbes article points to another workplace trend that offices are beginning to adopt: WELL Building Certification.

Essentially, WELL Building Certification is a building project standard that takes into account seven office environmental factors affecting human physical and mental health.

Two of these factors include light and comfort—neither of which have traditionally been central to office design.
