new way of working office trends

We’ve all had to adjust to the “new-normal way of working”. As the months have gone on it’s becoming more and more evident just how important your working environment is for not only your work productivity, but also your home life.

We’ve been researching office trends to look out for, and rightly so. We need to be at the forefront of what you are wanting from your office space. 

At first, we saw a lot of vegan and recycled fabrics, outdoor settings, mental and physical diversity in mind and informal working environments.

What are your thoughts on this?

Our thoughts are that these trends are exactly right. At Allenby Commercial, sustainable style is something we keep at the forefront of our minds when developing new spaces. 

First of all, we would like to talk about colour, colour can sway thinking, irritate, soothe, cause reactions so it is important to get it right.

The spaces we create have soothing colours, that encourage calmness. This is important in office environments as the right colours encourage production and, in some cases, the right colour is as important as choosing the right employees. Some colours below:

  • Warm Colours = Energy
  • Red = Sense of urgency
  • Blue = Intellectual colour
  • White, cream, soft greys = Comfort

Airflow in the workspace, is it important you ask?


There is a minimum standard of fresh air required in order to bring out a fresh working environment. We know that proper airflow is only achieved by effective ventilation. This was important prior to COVID-19 but even more so since the pandemic. Good ventilation can help reduce the risk of spreading Coronavirus.

Allenby make sure good ventilation is available throughout our developments.

Space, ask yourself, does my current office space hinder or help employee wellbeing, personality, flexibility and everything else my employees need from their workspace?

If the answer is hinder, you need to speak to us. We know  how important it is not to simply have office space, but we make sure our office spaces promote the below:

  • Employee success
  • Improved communication
  • Productivity
  • Flexibility
  • Social Space

One last thing before we go, do you like to Cycle to Work?

Allenby Commercial are big advocates of cycling to work and you could be too. We create designer showers & cycle stores at all of our office developments. With COVID-19 & the downtime in public transport we’ve seen demand for our facilities increase and we hope it continues.
