We're on week two of our personal challenge to cover 20six different aspects of commercial interior design and the office is buzzing with ideas. Moving on now to letters G through to L:
Week Two - G to L
G: G is for Growth, something all businesses hope to achieve. The only problem with being successful and growing your business is that you can outgrow your work space. This leaves you with the dilemma or whether to make better use of the space that you currently inhabit or face the upheaval of relocating. If you are thinking of moving offices it is well worth your while talking to a company who specialises in office relocations from the outset to make your transition as pain free as possible.
H: H is for Hive. We introduced you to this innovative and award-winning modular furniture system way back in March 2016 - and we still love it. This is a truly flexible piece of office furniture that adapts to your bespoke needs. Check out our previous blog post on Hive to see how it could solve a whole host of space issues in your office.
J: J is for Jaded a state a great many offices are in. Let's face it, for most business owners getting on with the work that generates the sales has to be your top priority and checking to see how your office looks is way down the check list. If you've neglected your working environment and it has become somewhat jaded it has repecussions beyond just the look. If you’re not happy letting clients see your office, your office design is letting you down.
K: K is for Kitchens. The office kitchen area is often a rather grim space full of semi-clean mugs, strange unidentified organisms thriving in the little fridge, and a sponge that could quite possible get up and walk off on its own. Larger organisations have recognised the importance of getting the office kitchen up to spec and making it a place we would want to spend time in, to mingle with fellow employees we may not come across in our usual working day, and to provide healthy, nutritional sustenance to increase employees health and wellbeing.
L: L is for Lighting. Getting the balance of light right in your offices has a considerable impact on your staff's health and productivity. In addition to the affect upon the well-being of your employees, your office lighting levels will have an impact upon the impression that your work space has to any visiting clients, and plays a contributory factor on your electricity bills. We dedicated a blog post to getting your office lighting levels spot on which will give you more information.
