    Starting at the Bottom of Your Back Ache

    Starting at the Bottom of Your Back Ache

    Sit and Stand desks can be life changing and can have huge health benefits as I have previously said. But, if you’re finding that you are still getting that lower back and leg ache, that didn’t magically disappear with standing more… Here is a little food for thought, standing is only healthier than sitting if it’s done right.

    The answer to this, is the revolutionized anti-fatigue standing mats which are swiftly sweeping the furniture field. Constant standing on a flat hard surface can lead to postal fatigue, which can force your body into unhealthy and unnatural positions. Once your body starts taking to this position it can cause some serious cramping, swelling, poor circulation and soreness… completely dampening your sit stand experience (what an ANTI climax).

    Not to worry, with the new innovative products hitting the market, standing mats will further the benefits of the sit and stand desks with their anti-fatigue purposes and dynamic features, we will all be Ryan Goslings in no time! But standing mats are also for those who are just looking for less pressure on their backs, better circulation, healthy movement and a healthier body… (so more washboard abs for me).


    Static standing is OUT and Ryan Gosling is IN… And so is anti-fatigue standing mat!



    Colour = Mood?

    Colour = Mood?

    Did you know the colour of the walls in your office could significantly reduce stress and boost productivity in the work place? As all the big CEOs of the world are reaching for cans of every colour under the sun, sit back and wait a minute….

    Choosing your wall colour in the work place isn’t just for aesthetic purposes, but to help build up your business from the inside - out. In this process you must think about these five key elements when picking your colour palette: stimulation, productivity, brand reflection, calming factors and clarity. The colours you choose ideally need to reflect your brand and values as well as the work your employees undertake. 

    Colours in the office have more of an impact than you would have ever imagined… They are the simplest way to boost performance and morale. In fact, there have been studies taken out in offices all around the world and their workers' reactions to colour in the work place. The results found that when particular colours were used there was quite a large increase in work ethic and productivity levels soared. With that said, too much of some colours can cause irritability and anxiety, so it really helps to do your research before you take the (brush) plunge. Furthermore, colours can give the same effect with just complements scattered throughout furniture and décor.

    But we are not just talking about the paint on the walls, wood has also been shown to have a huge impact on mood. As it is a more natural fibre, it is able to bring warmth and character to a dull room.

    I hope I’ve given you something to think about… now it's time to take action!



    Office’s flourishing and performance is growing… with greenery

    Office’s flourishing and performance is growing… with greenery

    With fit-outs booming, businesses are starting really taking charge of their brand, core values and their workplace atmosphere. With companies moving into a more relaxed atmosphere, the work coming from it is anything but relaxed… Studies were undergone on 10 high performing businesses in the US and the results emerged that green-certified offices were seen to have a 26% boost in cognition, 30% fewer sickness related absences and reported a 6% rise in sleep quality. 

    Furthermore, studies were also taken out around the world, producing more outstanding results. Exeter University in South West England, reported a huge 15% increase in productivity once plants were brought into the office. A green office led to a boost in employee engagement, concentration levels and clearer air qualities.

    Green offices are also seen to provide clarification and delay gratification. Resulting in Dutch studies providing sufficient evidence that greenery in the offices of decision makers help in their long-term goals, strategies and decisions. So, the real question is what are you waiting for? If the pros are better staff morale, health benefits and productivity increase you are basically losing the green without the green.

    Here at Love Your Office we will gladly take your stress back and allow you to focus on your work not ours. After the free consult we will take our plans back to our office and carefully construct a quote using your budget, time line, design brief, style, storage, power, data and measurements. The quote will also have additional options for you too choose from (colours, styles, sizes and prices) that we have carefully picked out (includes product pictures) to suit your business. Not only will this quote be adaptable to chop and change the products, but the quote has a formula to allow quantities to be changed and in turn your total will form to it.

    After you have chosen the products to suit your brand, we then come back to discuss layout and plan an install day. We then create our professional team, with your business in mind to be able to complete the job as quick and efficiently as possible. Our fit-outs only ever take one day (with exceptions to the rule) and we can set-up over weekend if it suits you better to avoid any delays or hassles. What else could you ask for?
