Making the Most of a Smaller Office Space

Making the Most of a Smaller Office Space You don’t have to work at a fortune 500 to get a taste of the luxurious life. A small digital startup can feel just as ritzy and contemporary as an LA penthouse design firm. What counts the most is the attitude you use when approaching your office space.

Small office design is best approached on an open learning curve. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Use Natural Lighting to Your Advantage

A Leesman’s workplace benchmarking poll from this year reveals that natural lighting actually makes a difference in employee mood. 76 percent of people surveyed from a sample of a  quarter of a million stated that good natural lighting made a difference, but only 57 percent of people stated being satisfied with the amount of natural lighting they received in their office spaces.

Natural lighting will not only create the illusion of more space, but it will lead to a more productive office team. One way to achieve this effect is by incorporating glass architectural wall dividers into your office space to allow the easy passage of light.

A Small Office Does Not Mean Small Artwork

While to some it seems logical that a smaller room is commanding of a more scaled-down decor plan, the opposite is actually true. Contemporary murals with natural scenes and metropolitan cityscapes promote good feng shui, and can turn a drab room into an upscale office space. But it’s not just a matter of what you place in a room; it’s also a matter of where. Find places where these bold pieces will draw the eye in, like in the boardroom or lobby area.

Be Selective with Furniture

In a small office, the furniture is essentially your statement pieces, and where you place them is critical. Because space is limited, you want to project a sense of belonging with modern flourishes that enhance specific areas, such as your office’s lobby, where the first impression is made. Sleek-looking lounge chairs and corner couches can add that touch you’re looking for.

We want you to love your space, and the way to do that is to find ways to make the most of it. Whatever the vibe you’re going for, we want to help. Contact us with your design inquiries today.
