Due to the pandemic, the world of office fitouts is moving faster than ever before – this has had an impact on working styles and, in turn, office interior design trends.
So here we look at hot office design trends that are picking up pace in 2022.
Read on for our top 3 trends.
Design Trend Number One: Biophilic Design
The Living Future Institute of Australia defines Biophilic Design as: “the practice of connecting people and the natural world of which people are part – within our built environments and communities”.
Put simply – in terms of office fitouts – this means incorporating nature into the office. The aim of this is to create positive spaces.
When it comes to workplace design, now more than ever, we should consider what the environment is doing to the brain and how we use that to help people be healthier and more productive.
This is not just via plants, but using a whole range of natural elements, such as wood for furniture, water (think fish tanks and water features), moss feature walls, carpet tiles with textures and colours that reflect the great outdoors and so on.
The workspace should ideally reflect the natural world as much as possible bringing natural light in, preventing noise pollution, using natural, sustainable fabrics – all designed to bring positive energy to the office space.
Design Trend Number Two: Sustainability
This trend follows from number one.
Acting responsibly towards the environment is a huge concern in general, and with office design this no exception. Therefore, we see such changes as using LED lighting (or natural light), prioritising natural materials (preferably locally sourced) and repurposing items wherever possible.
Staff are also being encouraged to behave ethically too – with such items as separate bins for different types of waste, reusable coffee cups, and have plenty of spaces for bikes on-site (and showers too if cyclists want to cool down after arriving).
All of this makes the office a more attractive place to come and work and do business, as well as help in the ongoing fight against climate change.
Design Trend Number Three: A Hybrid Approach
The lockdown forced most of us into the great Working from Home Experiment.
Following on from this, some companies have adopted a hybrid approach, whereby some employees split their time between the office and home.
This has resulted in some companies making changes to their office to accommodate this change.
Rather than the large open plan layout of the past, the new settings need to be able to scale up and down with ease. Agility is important, maximising available space to support this new type of working.
Maintaining clear lines of communication between those in the office and those at home is one obstacle of hybrid working. One solution being adopted by some businesses is “Zoom booths”. This is where digital meetings can be held on laptops plus, with their acoustic properties, they are also good for private phone calls.
Typically, in hybrid offices, employees aren’t allocated a fixed workstation – instead, they hot-desk. This means a robust locker system is essential for safety and security.
If the landlord allows it, sub-letting is a great way to make use of space that’s been left vacant due to a reduced workforce. This may also require some intelligent space planning and furniture procurement to safely optimise the area for a new team.
This is a cross-pollination of “residential” and “commercial” design. Resimercial aims to replicate the comfort of the home in the workplace. This means introducing homely elements – soft seating areas, throws and pillows; living-room items like rugs, plants, coffee tables and photo frames; and warm wooden finishes on floors and walls. With people working at home for so long, savvy companies are making workspaces as enticing as possible to attract and retain their staff.
Whether you want your workplace to just look & function better or you are planning a major fit-out, get in touch with Liteco Projects to find out how we can help you create the perfect working environment.

Consider these 2 statistics:
- More than 70% of customers visit a restaurant once and never go back
- 82% of companies agree that retention is cheaper than acquisition
As new customers are often harder to attract, it makes logical sense to concentrate on building loyalty with those customers who have already visited your café or restaurant.
So how are you going to create loyalty – well, here are some top tips, some totally simple, some a little more time consuming to help you get there.
Be friendly. Smile. Train your staff to smile and it will pay off ten-fold.
Allow for Walk-ins
Try to accommodate last minute guests in some capacity. Either leave some tables open for walk-ins, or if you really prefer reservations, consider at least having a bar or a few communal tables so you don’t have to turn away all those without a booking.
Give away Freebies
Be generous. Customers love freebies, however small – whether it is free sparkling water, a basket of bread or a bowl of chips – freebies make customers feel special.
Create a Loyalty Program
Want to turn casual customers into regulars? Then consider a loyalty program & reward your customers for spending money. Plus what is more – research shows Australians love loyalty programs!
According to Loyalogy, 73% of restaurant customers would recommend a business more frequently if it had an appealing rewards program.
Here are some examples to consider:
- Give unlimited coffee for a set fee per month
- Offer points for each dollar spent and get a free menu item with every 150 points
- Earn $25 for every $250 spent.
Communicate with your customers
Don’t stop after enrolling your customers into your loyalty program – communicate with them. Use the information they give you and offer them special birthday promotions, alert them to happy hours and events and most importantly, ask them what they want.
Respond Kindly & with Tact to Online Complaints
Bad restaurant reviews can go viral to the detriment of your business. Don’t allow reviews to make their way through the internet, instead be kind and tactfully address any issues on Google Reviews, Yelp or TripAdvisor with a clear apology.
As a cafe or restaurant you need your customers. Incorporate some of these tips into your business strategy and you should benefit from devoted customers bringing consistency in both periods of growth and tough times.

Light is one of the biggest factors that will determine the mood of your space, how your customers feel and whether they will come back. Creating a positive atmosphere will therefore not only benefit your customers, as well as your income.
Lighting and it’s effect
Understanding lighting and its effect is essential for your cafe or restaurant fitout – so here are a few pointers:
1. Ambient Lighting
Ambient lighting is lighting that comes from windows and lighting fixtures that substitute for natural lighting. This is the most common form of lighting and is known for creating warmth as well as illuminating a space without glare.
2. Accent Lighting
Accent lighting is lighting that highlights, or focuses on, a particular part of a room or an object in the room. It is great if you want your costumers to see a certain item or aspect.
3. Artistic lighting
Artistic lights may not provide bright lighting for your customers, but they make for an interesting design and can help to set a style and attract customers to your cafe.
Lighting and different times of the day
As natural light changes outside, lighting in your space should also change. It is therefore good to consider your operating hours and the kind of lighting which will work best.
Lighting Ideas for your Fitout
If understood, light can add so much more to your space than just illumination:
1. Lights as a Focus Piece
Thinking beyond the norm, lights can also become artworks/talking points and can add a unique design touch to your space.
2. Beyond the Table Light
You could have a table light, or the table can be the light – accent lighting reconsidered.
3. Design is Important
The type of light emitted from your lighting is important for your atmosphere, but it is also important to think about the design. Whether you go for chandeliers or pendant lights, design is King.
4. There is more than Edison Bulbs
The Edison bulb is everywhere, and whilst it is great, there are more lighting options that the Edison bulb. Here is just one example.

Very Peri is Pantone’s colour of the year 2022. It is a unique shade of purple that encourages creativity and imagination. The colour belongs to the blue family, containing a violet red undertone.
Pantone’s executive stated that the colour is meant to enhance creativity and show off a lively attitude.
“The Pantone Color of the Year reflects what is taking place in our global culture, expressing what people are looking for that colour can hope to answer,” Laurie Pressman, vice president of the Pantone Color Institute, said in a press release.
Very Peri, Pantone’s colour of the year 2022, is a unique shade of purple that encourages creativity and imagination.
Why Very Peri?
We are living in transformative times.
Very Peri is a symbol of these times and the transition we are going through. We are coming out of a period of isolation due to Covid, and our ideas and standards are changing. The digital aspect of our lives has also changed and we are stretching the limits of reality, opening the door to a dynamic virtual world where we can explore and create new colour possibilities. With trends in gaming, the expanding popularity of the metaverse and the rise of the digital space, PANTONE 17-3938 Very Peri illustrates how colour in the digital world and the physical world can fuse.
Interior design examples
Very Peri has great potential so don’t be afraid to experiment with this bold and fun colour. Use this colour to infuse a fresh, dynamic and joyous vibe into your interiors.
Here is it used in Cafe Krujok. Together, architect Eduard Eremchuk and designer Katy Pititskaya, have designed an “unusual, slightly crazy and unreal” pastry cafe.
Another example is a hamburger cafe in Italy called Bun Milan – creating a sophisticated but fun interior.
Tips on how to use Very Peri
This colour is very versatile – making it easy to combine with both warm and cool tones.
- Match with the right colours: This carefree colour pairs well with white, pink, beige, green. Also, it offers great value when paired with orange and yellow.
- Use it as an accent wall: Break away from neutral walls and introduce Very Peri as an accent wall.
- Use it a a pop of colour: Or if a whole wall is too much, use Very Peri as a pop of colour, an artwork, a chair or even a vase!
