DON'T Neglect Your Waiting Room
This is especially important if you frequently host meetings with clients/customers and/or if you frequently interview potential candidates.
A waiting room can create a very powerful first impression about a business (for good or for bad). Remember to choose high quality furniture; choose comfortable chairs that allow guests to relax before their meeting/interview.
Do Think About Storage
An office isn't just about desks and computers; storage is also very important. Depending on your business, your employees will need different storage solutions. Storage solutions don't just mean high quality filing cabinets; storage solutions also include other smaller items that make employees feel more comfortable in the office.
You could add a designated cloakroom in the office, so employees can leave their coats in a safe and convenient space, instead of resting their coat on the back of their chair. Additionally, if you work in an area that sees frequent amounts of rain, a place for employees to leave umbrellas would be a very simple yet useful storage solution for your workplace.
Don't Forget A Space For Breaks
Whilst a lot of your office design attention will indeed be focused around the office space itself, don't forget the importance of a well designed break room (also known as a breakout room).
Don't just settle for a sofa and a coffee machine. Create a relaxing environment where employees can relax and socialise with their colleagues. Indeed every business is different and the same goes for their employees. Discuss with your employees what items would be useful in their break room. Perhaps what they really want is a toaster and a microwave so they can have a delicious warm lunch during the winter days. Or perhaps your employees really want a pool table, so they can enjoy a fun game with colleagues over lunch.
