DESIGNING FOR EXTROVERTS

Hello!

Last month I talked about interior design tips for introverts.  This month, I want to talk about interior design tips for extroverts. According to estimates, extroverts outnumber introverts by about 3 to 1.1 so you may notice that a lot of spaces are designed this way.

Since every person is different and we want to create spaces that are nurturing instead of draining, addressing this is just another aspect of a holistic approach to design. And it’s also a great reminder that as we change, our spaces need to evolve and change with us.

Read on for some design tips to consider when designing your home and some things to look out for at your next job interview when visiting an office if you are an extrovert.

And of course, if you have any questions or want to share how this landed, you know where to find me- just hit reply!

Sending lots of ❤️,

DESIGNING FOR EXTROVERTS AT HOME

An extrovert is someone who thrives on social interaction and gains energy from being around others. They enjoy lively environments and often seek out opportunities for connection and excitement.

Below are some interior design tips tailored specifically for extroverts:

1. Open Floor Plans: Open floor plans that contain a kitchen, living room and dining room work great for extroverts. They enjoy the activity and social interaction, as well as the liveliness and togetherness that an open space brings.

2. Bold Colors and Patterns: Incorporating vibrant colors and dynamic patterns into the decor adds energy and personality to the space, reflecting the outgoing nature of extroverts.

3. Multi-functional Layouts: Embracing versatile layouts that accommodate various activities, from impromptu dance parties to game nights, ensures that extroverts have spaces that cater to their dynamic lifestyle.

4. Inviting Seating Areas: Creating inviting seating areas with a bunch of different seating options encourages spontaneous interactions and fosters a sense of warmth and hospitality within the home, allowing extroverts to thrive.

Overall, designing a home environment that celebrates social connection, energy, and excitement can enhance the living experience for extroverts and support their outgoing nature.

DESIGNING FOR EXTROVERTS AT THE OFFICE

Interior design qualities that would benefit an extrovert in an office setting include:

1. Collaborative Workspaces: Providing open-plan work areas or communal desks encourages collaboration and interaction among employees which creates a dynamic and engaging work environment.

2. Common Areas: Incorporating vibrant common areas with comfortable seating and recreational amenities, such as ping pong tables, creates spaces where extroverts can socialize and recharge during breaks.

3. Stimulating Design Elements: Including visually stimulating design elements, such as colorful artwork or interactive installations, adds excitement and energy to the office environment, keeping extroverts engaged and inspired.

4. Regular Social Events: Organizing regular social events, such as team lunches or after-work happy hours, provides opportunities for extroverts to connect with colleagues outside of work tasks and build stronger relationships.

By integrating these interior design ideas into an office space, employers can create a vibrant and inclusive work environment that supports the social and energetic nature of extroverts.
