Create a Stellar Office Break Room
On the Walls
Nothing brings more energy to a room than color. For an extra measure of fun, tape off cool designs to allow for a variety of bright colors.
Chalkboard walls bring an element of playfullness into your break room. With a variety of chalk colors your employees can leave notes as well as share their artistic talents. Pair it with a few brightly painted picnic tables and you’ve got break room gold!
Or, you could allow your staff to burn off a little steam with an oversized scrabble game. Grab some ready made magnetic letters or DIY your own with cardstock, a black marker, and some magnetic tape.
The beauty of a rolling cart is that it takes up a small footprint in your break room and it can easily be rolled into an office when you are entertaining clients. Add a pretty carafe filled with delicious beverages and your clients are sure to be wooed by your hospitality.
One thing that’s often needed in a small break room is storage. Whether it’s a cabinet or a bookshelf, be sure to leave space to store the essentials. It’s great to stock healthy snack options, but your co-workers would love it if you tossed in some Pop Tarts, as well. Too much healthy can bring a person down.
Make it Fun
If you want to create an interesting focal point, why not gather a bunch of random items and paint them the same color? You could even have your employees contribute items to add to the wall of cool kitsch.
Want a break room that will be the envy of all offices? Try creating a game room in the break room! There’s no better way to break the tension and stress of the work day than to play a game or two with your co-workers.
Some people talk about work being their home away from home. Maybe their office has a break room like this one. What could be more fun than that?
