You want to create a well designed, modern office space that is efficient and pleasant. What better than these 5 tips for a modern small office?
A modern, well designed office is as important in the success of a company as those who work there. It may be a little costly to have well designed interioriors in an office, but if done smartly, it could cost a lot less than imagined. On the other hand, a poorly designed office could be a hindrance to efficiently carrying out tasks, and function improperly, causing a lot of frustration and lack of productivity.
What if the space available is small? Below are some tips and tricks to make an efficient and modern small office space –
Having natural light and air is refreshing… and healthy, increasing the productivity of employees, and a positive environment. Glass walls that show the outside view can help in both – natural light, and adding beauty to the office space. Along with these, easily accessible doors and windows that add to it being a modern office are also important.
An organized office can solve many problems, but adding a personal touch can notch it up a step higher. While adding a personal touch, these can relate to the theme of your company, and experimenting with modern furniture designs helps capture the essence and the beauty of the workspace, along with unique wallpaper designs or quirky lights that smarten it up.
At the same time, do not overload it with accessories that you do not need and overcrowd the area. Keep in mind, ‘Less is more’, so try to have an adequate amount of space for you and your employees to move around. Keep the desks and corners clean and tidy, so as maintain a healthy, dustfree environment.
Large desks and comfortable office chairs also add to the designing of the offices. A computer table design for office with lots of drawers also helps in keeping your things organized and the working space uncluttered. Office chairs should be comfortable and ergonomically designed. If they aren’t, then all the money spent on decoration would go wasted. Of course, there is no limit as to how high a price could go on these pieces of furniture, but many renowned and trusted companies offer office chairs priced below 2000, which is the best deal to go with, even for startup companies.
In most modern offices, lot of worktime is spent sitting in front of a laptop at just one place, so to break this monotony, employees might want to wander around to feel refreshed and energized again. If a little thought and money are put on the break-out space where the employees could sit and eat or have a coffee along with a bit of chit-chat, or to just enjoy the change in the view, then it would encourage communication among workers and enhance spontaneity and productivity.
A company moves forward only with the best from their employees, and if their interest and comfort are not kept in mind then it would be the company that would suffer losses. Just as a good presentation helps in advertising a product effectively, a well organised and a properly maintained workspace also speaks a lot about the company. It would be beneficial, therefore, to hire professionals or ask for expert advice before investing in the interior design of offices.
If this design of a modern small office is planned and implemented well, then even the small companies with low budgets can get this done easily.
