Where would you rather work?
Office A – a place where the off-white walls are drab and you grind through the day like clockwork just waiting for the day to end, or;

Our guess is that you answered office B and that’s because countless studies have shown that a creative office environment improves productivity! People actually want to be productive and enjoy their work, it has massive mental health benefits, so that is why you need to start taking the aesthetics of your workplace into account.
