Office design trends in 2024

Traditionally, office interior design has reflected some of the mundane tasks that come with a 9-5 role, but as our relationship with the workplace has changed for the better, we are seeing more office spaces injected with life to give them more meaning and purpose than just functionality. Office interior design experts, Diamond Interiors, gives their predictions on the trends we’ll see in offices of 2024…

Biophilic design

Integrating natural elements into office spaces through the use of plants, natural materials, and large windows is a growing trend. Using greenery in the office not only brings a calming feel helping employees achieve well-being and productivity, but the clever placement of plants can also filter out background noise, and visually break up a room. Try grouping plants by odd numbers, and play around with different heights and sizes, colour shades and leaf shapes to make an eye-catching display.

Warm and inviting palettes

Warm and comforting colours such as soft yellows, peachy tones, and warm neutrals, could be popular in 2024. These shades can create a more inviting and home-like environment and can have an uplifting yet calming effect on your mood. Pastels and off-whites in particular are formulated with light-reflecting particles to brighten spaces well by reflecting light around the room, and when on walls, can act as a simple canvas for furniture and artwork.

Accent colours for stimulation

As your brain processes colours before any other signal or information, bright accent colours like energetic blues or vibrant yellows, can be used strategically to stimulate focus or energy in certain parts of any office. Pops of colour can be added by making bright feature walls contrasted by busy wallpaper or darker-toned colours. To go one step further add matching furniture.

Personalisation and individuality

In 2024, offices might also embrace more neutral colour schemes, allowing departments to customise their spaces in a way that resonates with their work or personality. This potential trend could be realised by creating individual accent walls to mark different sections, pop-up furniture, movable desks, and interchangeable seating areas. Modular designs allow for unlimited possibilities, meaning you can structure a space making it as communal or as individual as you like.

Soothing and serene palettes

Soft and soothing shades, especially calming blues and greens, could continue to be popular, as these colours contribute to a tranquil environment and a more relaxed atmosphere. The colours and their similar shades can create a feeling of restfulness and restoration. The key to this design is keeping the space functional and flowing. Make sure the space is free of objects, and colours and furniture are subtle and understated.

Experimentation with textures

Using textured elements like wallpapers, fabrics, and surfaces is a great way to add “visual weight” to an interior design scheme by adding depth and interest. You can then add opposing textures which will act as a contrast, making a space visually interesting without being overwhelming. For example, a rough texture can make a bold colour appear even more vibrant, while a smooth texture can provide a delicate backdrop for softer lighter shades.
