Co-working spaces have gained popularity in the past decades. This is because people want to gather around and share ideas while dealing with their daily tasks. Last, but not least – they also want to have fun during work. Functionality, original decorations, generous storing areas, flexibility and a bit of fun are the common features of the co-working spaces we gathered below. They can be displayed easily and also have a spark of uniqueness that make the users feel exclusive. Inspirational messages, cheerful combinations of colours, flowers pots, wallpapers with landscapes and comfy pillows transform the rooms in lively labour places.

A quite simple way to improve the working place is to completely change the walls. Most of the time, they are painted in plain, pure white – which, of course, keeps people focused -, but there is much to be improved here. Pick a wonderful landscape or dozens of funny messages and cover the wall with them. The employees will probably be distracted now and then, but they will grab a lot of inspiration from it too. Moreover, you will make them feel confident and respected showing that it is OK to ‘escape’ during working hours.
The natural landscape on the wall improves this common meeting room.
When people gather in one single room they become vampires of energy. To counter its effects, opt for large transparent windows that allow natural light come inside all day long. This makes the users feel comfortable and relaxed while allowing quicks peeps trough the window. If the room is taller than the common 2 meters height, it’s even better. The co-working spaces will feel uncluttered, thus very enjoyable.
The inspirational of the day
‘We go where the business is’ – a direct, forceful message for your business partners when you meet for the very first time. The area is a dynamic combinations of various items of furniture – a sofa, an armchair, a stool and a row of bar chairs – and four pendant lamps. The blackboard dominates the space and the message written on it becomes the statement of the company. The funny thing is that you can change it whenever you feel inspired. :-) I also like the symmetry of the space – it’s like the two cerebral hemispheres of our brains were put to work and nothing bothers them.
A fresh way to divide the rooms: separate them with a metallic structure where flower boxes can be fixed.
