Great Design Ideas for a Modern Workspace

11 min read

Nowadays, working from home is becoming a more common practice and may sometimes be essential during lockdowns. Depending on the pandemic’s state and work requirements, many follow an alternating schedule which requires a rotation between working from home and in the office. It’s more important than ever that you have a workspace which promotes comfort and productivity, and an ergonomic modern office workspace can have a long-term positive impact on our mood, posture, and mental health. In this article, we will cover some modern office space design ideas you may find useful to help bring some inspiration for your future workspace setup.

Modern Office Design Concept Tips

A modern office setting is intended to be suitable for professionals by having a stylish, productive, and comfortable design to accommodate for extended work hours. When brainstorming for modern office design concepts, there are a few important aspects which modern office setups will require:

  1. Sufficient space
  2. Invigorating background
  3. Adequate lighting
  4. Proper ventilation

1. Sufficient Space

The first thing that you should do is ensure that your chosen workspace has a large enough space for you to work comfortably. Measure your area to ensure your desks, furniture and other office equipment will fit in your space while still having spare moving room to get in and out. Having sufficient modern office space will:
  • Lower the risk of bumping into others
  • Reduce accidents of knocking into furniture
  • Promote greater comfort and ergonomics

2. Invigorating Background

Bright colors are not only invigorating, but studies have also shown that bright colors help increase productivity! A bright color will help your modern work office stand out and may help you feel more inspired to work. In some cases, you may want to consider painting your chosen workspace bright colors to reap the benefits of invigorating backgrounds. Alternatively, if your space has a brick or concrete wall, you can use that to your advantage to create a very modern look for your office space.

3. Adequate Lighting

Due to insufficient lighting, many office tasks such as reading papers or working on a computer can result in severe eye strain when done for prolonged periods of time in a dark area of the room. A darker room can also cause us to feel sleepy and lead to lower motivation while working. In a modern office setting, having adequate lighting and windows is crucial for promoting work safety, productivity and maintaining a positive mood.

4. Proper Ventilation

Oxygen is perhaps the most important thing we need in our daily lives. Because of this, a modern office space will require the sufficient windows and HVAC to accommodate for the individuals inside a building to have proper ventilation. It is also our responsibility to ensure the windows and HVAC have scheduled maintenance and do not have obstructions that were blocking proper air flow. Another benefit of windows is the natural lighting they can provide on a sunny day.

Modern Office Furniture

After a modern office workspace has been chosen, the next step involves updating the furniture that you will be using every day. If you work from home, you will most definitely want a modern office space that you will be comfortable working in.
There are many options for additional furniture that you might need depending on personal preferences and use case, however, some of the notable modern office furniture you should consider are:
  1. Modern Office Desks
  2. Filing Cabinets
  3. Modern Office Chairs
  4. Lounge Seating

1. Modern Office Desks

It is important to get the correct types of desks for the modern office concepts you had in mind. Your desk is perhaps the most important aspect of your modern office workspace as it is where you will spend most of your time throughout the day. Therefore, it is important to ensure that it is a comfortable space to encourage productivity and help boost positivity in your daily mood.

Desk Size

A regular office desk may be all that you need for a home office space or for an individual office in the office building. If you are wanting to provide workspaces for several employees in one area, you may be more interested in office cubicles. Adding sleek and modern panels to these cubicles can provide the employees with some privacy and a feeling of isolation while they work.


Reception desks come in many contemporary models that offer an aesthetically pleasing appearance to anyone entering the office building. These polished desks will also provide your receptionist with everything they need to do their job successfully. If you and your coworkers attend a lot of large group meetings, you may also be interested in a conference desk. These large desks usually come with enough space to seat at least ten people.

Electric Standing Desks

When searching for office furniture, most people have ultimate ergonomics and health in mind. It is a well-known fact that sitting all day is unhealthy as it can cause back problems while increasing the risk of heart disease and diabetes. The solution to this problem comes with the purchase of electric standing desks which are rising in popularity by promoting a more active workstyle. Standing desks allow users the convenience of change desk heights at anytime depending on whether a seating or standing position was preferred. Some of the key benefits a standing desk offer are:
  • Elevated work morale
  • Decreased Pain from Bad Posture
  • Reduces the Risk of Cancer
  • Improves General Disposition and Vigor
  • Improves Cardiovascular Health and Weight Regulation

2. Filing Cabinets

We highly recommend considering filing cabinets as they offer many benefits inside any modern work office. Steel type filing cabinets offer increased environmental protection, moisture resistance and helps with fire prevention by keeping flammable belongings contained in a secured enclosure. Filing cabinets in general will also offer other benefits such as:
  • Added storage space
  • Keeping office supplies well organized
  • Locks for extra safety and security
  • Variety of elegant designs for added style

3. Modern Office Chairs

Tempting though it may be to work from your couch or recliner, your back and shoulders will not thank you. Have a proper comfortable office chair is crucial so that you do not experience any issues such as back pain, cramped neck, or incorrect posture during long seated work sessions. When possible, we recommend physically trying out a chair before purchase as this can help verify whether it has the needed adjustability to be comfortable for our individual preferences. Thankfully, the market offers lots of different modern office chairs with some aesthetically pleasing options that will add pizazz to your modern office setting.

4. Lounge Seating

A lounge seating can often stimulate the brain by creating a more relaxed environment and making us have the feeling of being at home. When you are taking a quick break from the desk, lounge chairs can sometimes help enhance productivity by inspiring creative thinking. Modern office setups can also experience these benefits from lounge chairs inside casual meeting rooms. They also offer a casual place to comfortably seat other guests and walk-in visitors.
