Don’t think small
Here are a few ways to increase the space in a small office:
1 Lighting and neutral colours
Some of the simplest ways to achieve a bigger space is to take advantage of natural lighting and introduce a neutral colour scheme. This will open the room up as opposed to darker colours closing in the space. If your office lacks an abundance of light, an effective option is to install LED lights which are long-lasting and consume less energy.
2 Reduce paper use
Implementing a paper-free office could be quite a challenge for some businesses but cutting down on paper usage means there is less of a requirement for storage solutions and filing cabinets. This not only brings with it the obvious environmental benefits but you leave yourself with space you didn’t know you had!
3 Opt for smaller workstations
With more businesses introducing more flexibility and encouraging ‘working from home’ options, many employees have no need for large monitors and setups requiring bigger workstations. Take into consideration whether your staff work from laptops and what they actually need to store at their desk.
Simple, effective and efficient
There are many ways to fit out your small office space to increase functionality and efficiency. Implementing these fitout ideas will produce maximum benefits to productivity and staff morale – just as a cohesive design will make your small space appear much larger.
