    What is an office breakout area?

    An office breakout area or office break area is a specially designed space set apart from the workstations of a company. Designing the right breakout area considers every aspect of the room.

    Encourage productivity and innovation.
    Provide spaces to eat and entertain.

    Things to consider for your office breakout area…

    What is your breakout area going to be used for?

    An office break area can be used for several purposes and it’s essential that the design and layout reflect this. A breakout area can be used…

    For employees to take a break, eat and play, such as with the inclusion of games.
    As extra, informal meeting spaces to encourage productivity.
    To comply with laws that govern health and safety.

    Once you’ve established the purpose of your breakout area, you’ll be able to begin thinking about the design.

    Breakout Area Design

    The design of your breakout area will largely depend upon its purpose. For example, if the primary function of your office break area is as a space for employees to relax, consider the addition of sofas and coffee tables. If it is to be used as an informal meeting space, office breakout area furniture such
    as round desks might be better. Or if it is going to encourage fun, games tables such as football tables could be a great addition. Additionally, providing multiple breakout areas allows employees to have options and choose the space that best fits their needs.

    Breakout Area Location

    The location of your breakout area is as important as its design. Although your office break area should be accessible, it shouldn’t impact the day-to-day running of your business as a whole. Therefore, it’s important to ask yourself the following questions…

    How frequently will employees visit the breakout area?
    What will the impact be on employees sitting nearby?
    Will the breakout area be noisy and therefore need to be located further away?
    Will you need multiple breakout areas across several floors?

    What are the benefits of having an office breakout area?

    Comply with the law
    To comply with laws that govern health and safety, employees should have access to a flat surface to eat, and a cooking area where they can prepare meals and drinks (if you incorporate a kitchen into your breakout area).

    Improve wellbeing
    Breakout areas can significantly improve the well-being of your employees. In addition to giving them a space to physically leave their desks, a breakout area can be used as a space to promote relaxation, inspiration and communication.

    Encourages interaction and collaboration
    A breakout area will encourage interaction and collaboration among your staff. In addition to personal relationships, this can contribute to productivity by giving employees a space to communicate and engage.
