By its very nature, working in a small environment can present a number of challenges. What was once an adequate space may now be restricting for business, which could affect the performance of staff, which in turn, affects the performance of the business. The reasons why space becomes increasingly (or, decreasingly!) less could be for a number of reasons – mainly an expansion of staff, changes in health and safety legislation and/or the installation of new furniture or technology.
If your office space is a tight squeeze, maybe you should think about relocating from, expanding upon or refreshing your current office design? Not only can you move into an environment that will be more comfortable to work in, but you'll also have sufficient room to place in new types of furniture or equipment and cater for any future expansion of your staff.
Due to the lack of space, a small office (especially one that has been used for a number of years) can be difficult to imagine with a completely new design bestowed upon it. With this problem, many small office proprietors turn to office design professionals to help them to reimagine their office interiors, transforming them into modern, functional workplaces. Skilled professionals will be able to use their industry expertise and experience to create a design plan that will take into account what the business does, who is present within the office, what it wants to achieve and what needs to be implemented within the workplace that will achieve these goals.
Here are some things to think about when thinking about making changes to your office interiors:
If you've thought about the points above and still aren't able to sufficiently implement everything that you need to in order to create your ideal design – then a office relocation to a larger space may perhaps be the only way in which you can do so. Dependent upon the available rates, acquiring a larger office space may actually prove to be more cost-effective than actually changing the layout of your current one. Not only can you take advantage of the larger space to create better working practices but you'll also be able to cater for any future expansion or technology installations too!
