Post-recession designs driving the hottest trends
Mar 8 2011
Positive news out of the economic forecast has many consumers believing they have finally overcome the doldrums of the recession. These past few years have changed the country forever, and nowhere is that more apparent than in interior design. Office design has changed exponentially, as businesses turn to energy-efficient spaces that maximize light and reduce environmental impact, according to ConstructionWeekOnline.com.
Offices should take advantage of honeycomb cellular shades to cut down on their energy usage.
The International Interior Design Association (IIDA) has named a few of its top design trends for a post-recession economy over the next decade. Some of the notables include green and humanitarian design. An office layout should take advantage of light and sustainable materials in an effort to be cutting-edge and foster new ideas within a company.
In addition, the IIDA believes that minimalism and elastic designs are the best ways to keep up with an ever-changing global economy. Maximizing the use of space and allowing it to be changed on the fly will allow businesses to expand and contract on the fly.
One way to improve the energy-efficiency of your company is with honeycomb cellular shades. These insulating window coverings come in a variety of styles, can be custom made to fit any window and will help you reduce your utility bills.
