Blocking: Includes your furniture system, partitions, panels, screens, and walls

Covering: Masking sounds

2. Use Of Colour Theory

Research shows that colour theory can affect employee performance substantially. When you design an area for a particular purpose, using the proper colour palette helps support that intention. For instance, the colour blue has been shown to have a calming effect on the nervous system whereas yellow has been known to encourage focus and direction. A Commercial interior design will take into accounts these factors when designing the colour palette for your interior design to help drive your employee focus.

3. Lighting

Commercial Interior Designers consider many other factors such as the temperature and thermal comfort in the space. The access to views of nature. Sensory changes, crowding, indoor air quality, employee engagement and more.  All of these impact your employees and help provide a comfortable and productive workplace. A comfortable and productive workplace contributes to your bottom line, and ensures the success of your business.
