Have you ever considered adding an outdoor work area to your office? If you work from home, you can either choose to work outside or draw up plans for an office space that incorporates sunlight, nature, and fresh air. If you are in charge of a workplace, you can also create an outdoor office space by placing furniture and desks outside that can be used at assigned hours. This outdoor setup isn’t just for show. It can have noticeable effects on employee attitudes, behavior, and productivity.

Writing for Work Design Magazine, Laura Brophy notes that working in outdoor spaces can improve employee concentration and focus. This is why companies such as Microsoft have “treehouse conference rooms,” where they can collaborate on problems in the presence of nature. Brophy also cites a study from Stanford University that shows how people who walk outdoors tend to have the most creative and novel ideas. Also, the health benefits of being outdoors have been well documented over the years. If you want your employees to be happy, healthy, and productive, an outdoor office space is a valid idea to consider.

For your outdoor furniture space, you’ll need attractive, comfortable furniture that can withstand the wear and tear from being exposed to the elements. Outdoor wicker furniture sets are a great choice because they are made from resin that resists damage from the sun, rain, and moisture. Unlike natural wicker furniture sets, they are specifically designed for the outdoors, so you won’t have to worry about doing extra maintenance and upkeep.
