When it comes to working in an office, there is nothing more unpleasant than feeling crammed into a small space with no room to think.
KJ Architects design all kinds of offices, including spaces that have limited floor area. Opting for a space-saving design can make best use of the amount of space that you do have, and provide more storage space for essential things like files, folders and other important work documents.
No matter what business sector you work in, KJ Architects can provide you with space-saving designs that can help make your office the most effective it can be.
Variable layouts and fold-away furniture
Rather than opting for fixed furniture and fittings, in small offices, it can often be beneficial to include things like portable furniture and pack-away storage compartments.
This means that your office will become more versatile and you can fit your furniture around your room size, rather than trying to cram everything into the limited space you have.
Interior design that emphasises space
When it comes to decorating your office, you can heighten the sense of space by using neutral colours, like white and off-white, and incorporate a few block colours in the furniture.
Make the most of the natural light coming in through the windows, and make sure the door and doorways are not crowded with any boxes or other office furniture.
Include furniture to store away documents
Files and folders that are not stored away simply make an office feel cluttered and untidy. What’s more, staff will definitely feel that they lack space to work efficiently. By storing file, papers and documents away in practical items of furniture, you will ensure that desk and working surfaces are clear for a strong sense of space and organisation.
Think about the size and shapes of the desks
The desks that you choose for your office should be relative to the size of the room and the number of people working in it and most importantly be suitable for the work to be carried out on the desks. It is important to think carefully about the type of desks you opt for, so that you don’t take away unnecessary floor space that will give the office an open, airy feel.
