The Office Break Room of 2022

When it comes to office break rooms, there are a few key things to keep in mind in order to maintain a space that is both functional and inviting. First, consider the layout of the room and how it can best be utilized.

For companies looking to attract and retain top talent, especially in the post-pandemic era, it is important to have a break room that makes the workspace more welcoming than ever.

This means having plenty of space for employees to spread out, as well as having multiple seating areas and surface areas.

It is also important to make sure that the break room is always clean and stocked with the essentials. This includes things like coffee, tea, snacks, and dishes. Employees should feel comfortable using the space, even to the point of using the area as an alternate work space, or for small breakout meetings.

The office break room can be a great place to promote company culture. By decorating the space with company colors or branding, and by providing items like games or books, employees will feel like they are part of something bigger. When done right, the office break room can be a great place for employees to relax and recharge.

The best types of furniture for the break room includes:

  • Tables and chairs that are easy to move around
  • A mix of both comfortable and hard seating options
  • Surfaces that are easy to clean
  • Some of the must-have items for the break room include:
  • Coffee maker and supplies
  • Tea kettle and supplies
  • Snacks and drinks
  • Dishes, cups, and utensils
  • When it comes to break room decor, consider things like:
  • Company colors or branding
  • Artwork or posters
  • Games or books
