How Glass Chair Mats & Other Design Trends can Maximize Your Business Success
Good light, natural colors, live plants, a clutter-free desk, and comfort features like glass chair mats can boost your business success.
The look and setup of your office can profoundly impact morale – which, in turn, significantly impacts productivity and profitability. Incorporating design factors as simple as using Glass Chair Mats over vinyl chair mats can help keep your employees happy and your bottom line strong. Clearly Innovative offers a few design tips for maximizing your success:
- Comfort is Key: Comfortable employees are productive employees. And comfort takes multiple forms, whether it's in a home or corporate office setting. An ergonomic keyboard and mouse will cut hand fatigue and help avoid conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome. An ergonomic chair paired with a glass chair mat will ease the strain on the back, neck, shoulders, and knees. Good lighting will reduce eye strain and resulting headaches. A visual breath of fresh air helps keep an office from feeling cage-like. A window is ideal, but if your office doesn't have any, you can mimic the outdoor effect with paintings of outdoor scenes and lots of live plants (which, by the way, help improve the air quality in an office – a health benefit unto itself).
- The Color of Success: Subdued, cool colors promote feelings of tranquility and focus. Light blues, greens, yellows, and whites help employees focus. In fact, that's why legal pads are light yellow in color. Dark, overly bright and red-toned colors are distracting.
- Keep it Close: Items you use regularly should ideally be reachable without leaving your desk. These include printers, fax machines, scanners, file cabinets and smaller items like staplers, pens, notepads, calendars, etc. Things that are shared between multiple employees should be kept close by and in an area that's as aesthetically pleasing as the rest of your office.
- Clear the Clutter: Some say "a cluttered desk is a sign of genius." They're wrong. Studies show that clutter is mentally distracting and can hamper productivity. Every minute you spend searching for that report beneath stacks of magazines, Post-It notes, and other assorted stuff is a minute wasted. A better saying is "time is money." Boxes and folders that complement your office décor can help contain your clutter and create a more efficient, effective work environment.
Our Glass Chair Mats deliver ergonomic benefits and give your workspace a more professional appeal. If you're currently sitting at your desk and your chair is on the traditional, ugly vinyl mats that we all know and hate, imagine for a moment that you were using a clear Glass Mat with patented beveled edges that allows you to roll on and off and glide around the surface easily. With our patented Glass Chair Mats, pushing and struggling to move your chair around will be a thing of the past. But beyond that, they just look so much better and will complement whatever decor and furnishings you have. Lastly, they are environmentally friendly since they are made from silica, sand, and recycled glass versus plastic.
