What’s Your Office Window View of Birmingham?

Spring is finally here!

Your office window view is probably a bit gritty with the residue of winter’s wrath. While we are all crawling out of the winter blues, now is a good time to have your office building’s windows cleaned for when the sun starts to shine. 

Your office window view can have an impact on your wellbeing.

We have all heard the saying “you are what you eat”. This can also be adapted to “you are what you see”. We know office window views aren’t always picture perfect. There are definitely some lack lustre views for sure.

Looking at a dingy office view does affect your mood over time. There are many factors that go into creating a pleasant office window view. Let’s have a “look”, shall we? (See what I did there?)

Clean Office Windows

Of course we are going to promote clean office windows. We want you to be happy! Couldn’t the world use more of that these days?

But seriously, clean office windows affect not only how you feel, but how your clients feel when they visit your office. When your windows at home, in the car, or on the bus are clean, doesn’t it make you feel a little better?

The Office Window View Affects Wellbeing

Studies have actually been done to measure the affect of an office window view on personal wellbeing. The data supported that viewing nature from an office window reduces stress and encourages people to go outside.

If an office window view isn’t part of your daily work, the aesthetics of your work environment definitely are. The colour of the walls to the artwork to desks and hallways with good lighting,

The layout of the desks and office space affect people’s wellbeing too. What kind of views of the office space do most people have? Are many people in a cubicle and see a cubicle wall as the only view when looking away from the screen? Or is there an open floor plan with short and long distances for viewing?

Long distance views actually help the eyes to refocus and reduces eye strain, headaches, and fatigue. Desk views that include other coworkers provide a psychological connection for people.

Improving the Office Window View

If you enjoy nature and unfortunately have a large selection of cement, brick, or steel as your office window view, adding some green plants or colourful flowers can be a mood booster. That may even encourage you to go outside during lunch to take in some greenery or some fresh air.

Office views also include the interior decor. Uplifting colours, a variety of artwork, relatively updated furnishings, and uncluttered spaces all play a positive role in personal wellbeing.
