Proper space planning and design are crucial when building a new space or remodeling a current one. The planning and design experts at Carolina Services, Inc. recommend that you think through the following questions before getting started on your next project.
What statement do I want my office space planning and design to make about my company?
Regardless of whether you want it to or not, your office space design speaks volumes about your company. Your office’s design is a significant part of your business’s branding and should reflect it appropriately. Make sure you know the message you want to send and that your designs reinforce that message, not detract from it.
How can your office space planning and design increase efficiency?
The way you set up your office space can shape the way that your employees work and interact with one another. Many companies are moving towards open floor plans for workspaces to increase the ease of collaboration. Doing so helps an office become more efficient, often saving both time and money.
How can you create a welcoming atmosphere throughout the office?
Making customers feel welcome is a top priority, and the way your space is designed can play a key role in that. A great way to make your reception area more inviting is to increase the amount of natural light in the room; be sure to consider this aspect when planning your reception space. In addition to making clients and customers feel welcome, it is important to think about the comfort level of your employees. A few ways to increase employee satisfaction through space planning and design are to provide lounge areas for breaks and to offer private spaces where employees may go to work when extra focus is needed.
