It is not hard to design an office which will be both practical and functional for you. If you are your own designer don’t be afraid to use things that enhance your style and personality. If you have to design a small office, keep your focus on improving the workstation, shelving, storage, and lighting. Those things will offer you a chance to adjust the office for your needs and when you do that, you can improve your performance.
Having a small office has its perks and shortcomings and all you have to do is pick only the perks. For example, don’t purchase large bulky pieces of furniture when creating your perfect small office. The desk is the centerpiece, focal point, and most used piece of furniture in any office. Everything you use often, bring closer to your desk and things you don’t use, put away on the further wall.
Compact offices are wonderful because you can tailor them to your desire. Keep in mind that designing a functional small office is a challenge. You would need to consider every element you can use, including the wall color. The use of color is essential in the functionality of your office, as it will help to create a particular “mood” as you enter the space.
Will you be seeing clients in your office? Do you want your office to be warm and inviting? Do you want your office to blend in with your personality and the business you are providing? Do you want your office to be stimulating or relaxing? These are just a few questions you need to ask yourself before the entire project starts. Every answer can help you choose the wall color, the furniture, the decoration even the entire layout of the office.
A light wall color can brighten the room and improve your productivity. The perfect color to give your office an open spacious feel is white. This would give your office a crisp, clean look. If you are tired of white colors you can let creativity choose the color. You can choose colors like light gray, light lime and light yellow. As you can see I used the adjective “light” for every color. That will leave the bright and clean look in the office, without the “dull” white.
A workplace is much more than just a design of the office. It is how you feel about it and that is why I have made a list of features an average person would want for the ideal office environment. Those points are great guidelines in creating the perfect workplace for your office:
