It’s true, the sun really does make people happier! But, for most people, working in an office on a hot Summers day can have the reverse effect. Everyone would love to be outside soaking up the rays, but the reality is, you have to work!

Glass partitioning is an excellent way to segregate a workplace whilst maintaining as much of the natural light transfer through a building as possible. Glass partitioning helps to give an overall feeling of space, unlike solid walls, which provide a more defined division between spaces, blocking natural light to flow through the office.
Brighten the space up
A splash of colour helps to bring your office to life, but you need to ensure you incorporate the right colours. Many businesses like to use colours that match their branding, but if you want to add a little extra, colours such as:
Yellow – You might think yellow is very bright, but, used in the right way can really lift the space. The colour is connected to optimism and creativity, so what better places to incorporate the colour than in meeting rooms or breakout areas, where people come to collaborate.
Green – This colour is perfect for areas that adopt the calm and relaxing feel. If you are working with computers all day, the colour green helps to reduce eyestrain.
Air conditioning is a MUST have through Summer
Feeling hot and stuffy is uncomfortable for anyone, especially at work. It will lower productivity and the overall mood, which isn’t good for any business. Air conditioning systems are great, they remove the moisture in the room. This will stop people from feeling sleepy and lethargic.
Create an open space
If you haven’t already, you should think about creating an open plan space in your office. Not only is it more modern nowadays, but it also helps sunlight to shine through, making the space more bright and airy – perfect for a Summers day!
