For smaller commercial spaces, maximising office space can be a challenge. Smaller office spaces can pose some limitations with reduced natural light and less physical space to allow for work zones and storage.
From custom joinery to smart glazing strategies, see how clever office design can help you maximise space in your small office or commercial areas.
Custom joinery not only looks great but is a great way for adding more functional storage to your areas. From custom designed receptions desks with storage to planter boxes that double as storage stations, custom designed joinery will allow you to squeeze every inch of practical storage space into your design.
Selecting the right colour for your space is important and will largely depend on how you want to utilise your space. If you want to create a small, intimate environment, darker colours might suit while shades that reflect the light will help you to create the illusion of more space.
Full Height Glass
Utilising full height glass in your office design is a great way for allowing more natural light into your office and for drawing the eye up, giving the impression of more space. Consider using full height glass around your meeting areas and in office fronts.
Designing spaces that can be used for multiple purposes is a clever design strategy for those in small spaces. Work zones that can be reconfigured depending on staff numbers or kitchen areas that can be utilise for training and events all ensure that you can use the limited space that you have for a variety of purposes.
Add A Focal Point
Utilise a design focal point to draw attention away from your spatial constraints. Greenwalls, artwork and statement lighting are great ways to create visual interest within your space and draw the eye to the positives of your office.
A hanging sculpture or lighting pendant for instance might draw the eye up to highlight high ceilings or voids, a mirrored reception area might highlight a great view or classic acrylic chairs which are transparent will visually disappear and make the space look more open.
