When planning an office design for small spaces, the essential thing to remember is to set a budget. Many businesses cannot afford spacious office space, especially if they are a startup or a small business. Therefore, designing for such an office requires great creativity and foresight on how to get the most from less.
When setting a budget for a project, you need to identify all the elements involved in the project, right from furniture, wall finish, build cost, partitions, raw material, flooring, decoration items, artwork, to fees. In addition, you need to add contingency fee for any unwarranted expense that might come up as the project progresses.
Remember, even on a low budget, you can create an aesthetically pleasing, sophisticated, and functional office, provided you spend wisely. Therefore, seeking assistance from an interior designer is a good choice because they can come up with multiple ideas based on your requirement, and will help you have an impressive space.
Here is our list of things to keep in mind when designing an interior:
Don’t Compromise on Quality Furniture
According to the leading interior designers in Delhi, Gurgaon, and Noida, when designing an interior there has to be more emphasis on the quality of furniture used. Investing in good furniture can go a long way in being a cost-effective strategy in the long run. Since furniture is one item that is going to see heavy usage, you need to invest in good, sturdy ergonomic furniture for the workstations. While areas like the conference room, the meeting room can have stylish furniture because these are areas that are frequented by clients.
Opt for an Open Plan Layout
An open plan office helps employees work in tandem with each other and at times share the workstations. You can have a few enclosed rooms if the space permits or you can separate the area with a partition. An open plan gives you the choice to adjust and accommodate more employees as and when required. It works well especially if you are a startup or a small company.
Think Out of the Box
A soothing ambiance and a great visual can impress your customers and make employees more productive. A feature wall at the reception that is not expensive but adds a personality to your office and instills your brand identity can be very impressive.
In an open layout, you can use makeshift dividers to separate one area or department from another. You can get creative by using dividers with storage for optimum use. Glass partition though a little expensive, can be used as dividers. The main advantage is they will not block natural sunlight, making the room bright.
Be Flexible with your Budget
It’s important to stay flexible when working on a project on a budget. For example, if there is a requirement for a tile flooring and you have budgeted X amount for it, if you can exchange them for a high-quality ceramic tile with a similar texture, at half the price, why not. Look for alternatives before buying each product to maximize every dollar you spend. This will help you keep your budget on track.
