Designing a new breakroom for your office? Gone are the days of the lunchroom being a stodgy, boring place for employees to stop by once a morning for coffee. These days, business owners are going the extra mile to make employees actually want to spend time in the breakroom. After all, breaks are essential for keeping workers feeling refreshed and ready to perform. Why not give them a space they can fully enjoy? These are some of the breakroom styles that are now trending.
Modern breakrooms are some of the most popular of 2016, and it’s not hard to see why. With a streamlined design and a striking color palette, modern breakrooms are simply stated to create a calm, clean appearance. When it comes to a modern look, most businesses opt to stick with a neutral color scheme of blacks, whites and grays and pair it with pops of more exciting hues, usually in their brand color.
Transitional design is somewhere between modern and traditional, which makes it an ideal candidate for use in a lunchroom or café. Furniture in this style isn’t quite as sleek as modern options are, but it still has a clean and simple look to it. Colors used in transitional furniture is varied and usually includes some sort of warm wood tone along with seats that can be brightly colored or left neutral.
Rustic breakroom furniture always includes some sort of wood element and is often constructed of solid wood for quality and an inviting look. Color options for rustic style furniture usually lean more on the warm side, but washed out driftwood grays have been gaining popularity in recent years. Rustic lunchroom furniture is typically associated with cafes and coffee houses due to their homelike appearance.
Industrial style breakroom furniture takes the homelike elements of rustic design and makes them a little more edgy. These chairs and tables usually feature a combination of wood and metal that creates a loft-like look that appears as if it came straight out of a warehouse or factory. Industrial style is also a popular choice for cafes and trendy restaurants and is gaining in popularity among business lunchrooms.
Outdoor breakroom tables and chairs come in every style, but they can have a style of their own as well. Take the Grosfillex Tables collection, for example. The construction of this furniture is not only resistant to the elements, but it also has a rugged appearance reminiscent of what you might find naturally in the great outdoors. Weathered wood and metal gives off a warm, inviting look that's ideal for enjoying Mother Nature during a break at work.
