Office Refurbishment – Advice From An Expert

By Mark Walters

Designing an office space is challenging because you ideally want to create a space that is both practical and comfortable. You also want to add in an element of appeal because happy employees are productive employees. You want to create a space that is organized. When everything has a place, it is so much easier to find what you need. When you can easily lay your hands on the tools you require, you can get so much more done in a shorter period of time. You also bring clients into the office so you want the space to reflect your company, your mission, your motto and your personality as a company.

Think about the office at a mechanic’s shop and the one of the advertising executive at a major company. They are probably not going to be even close to identical. Since each person has different duties to perform, the office design will also be different based on the needs of the person and the business as well. The office has to be set up to accomplish the different goals.

For the advertising executive at a major company, a more contemporary design would probably be well-suited. This is because a contemporary look reflects a company that is at the forefront of progress. In the same way, a traditional office design would probably be better for companies that have been around for awhile and do not need such a formal appearance. This style would definitely reflect that kind of atmosphere at the mechanic’s shop or at other companies whose main duties are manual labor jobs.

But there are no rules set in stone. Your office is your office. You want to do what makes you feel comfortable and energized when you come into work. Take into consideration the type of work or the industry, the amount of space you have to utilize, and the type of tools and equipment you need. Also factor is how many employees you will be housing every day and the space you need to visit with clients. Your available funds are also a piece of the puzzle. Now think about the feel and culture of your office. What kind of energy do you have in your office? All of these things go into your design choices.

And that is not the end of the practical considerations that have to take place prior to any significant changes. You will still have to think about where to place the electrical and phone outlets, what type of lighting should be used, and what type and how much furniture is needed and where it will be put. In the end, an expert in office interior design has a number of responsibilities. A skilled designer must create an office space that is professional and functional, and reflects the image and type of business that will take place in the office.
