Mompreneurs can apply the following tips when designing their own home offices. Functional spaces make everyone feel more productive and happy in your business!
Depending on how much office space you have available and how your building is made, you will have a chance to turn it into something worthwhile. If you want to have truly lasting changes, then you will need to keep in mind that these will take some serious planning and work to pull off, especially when it comes to offices that have recently gone through clearance. It can be a really good idea to work on a major redesign after you are done with an office clearance since you will have more freedom of movement you can rely upon.
Plan your office space
Each office should be designed uniquely around the user. To plan wisely, think about what you really want to do in your office and stage the space around the highest impact it will have in the long run and their productivity. It may be helpful to learn more about your unique organizing personality style. Once you determine your style preferences, consider the ‘hard scapes’ and structures that comprise the layout of an office. These aspects are just as important (if not more important) than other functional or decorative aspects, so to ensure it is done right, consider learning more about your unique organizing personality and approach before you buy anything. Here’s a podcast that can help you determine your organizing personality style, but the best way to be sure is to take the assessment here for yourself.
Ensure you have enough natural light streaming in and that it is unobstructed. And if possible, avoid the cubicle approach unless it is entirely necessary to the way your business operates in its daily routines.
Make use of prior design solutions
The more adaptable the design, the easier it will be to make any future changes you need to keep your work environment fluid as time goes by. Many designers have worked hard to create flexible furniture and storage solutions for offices. When you create a more open approach you’ll be able to change and tweak things over time. Clearing out the old and redesigning your office frees up much needed space so you can work on time management, prioritizing and careful execution. Consider the existing design and age of the building to ensure your office space maintains it’s charm and appeal!
The value of sturdy flooring
Flooring is one of the most important aspects of an office. Floors handle foot traffic, furniture and must be able to hold up to the test! If your office is in a public place, be sure to find materials that long lasting and strong. (This also goes for colors… if they’re too light, they show every little stain!) Choose from carpeting to wood to composite general flooring – and remember to keep them clean so they last longer. If your office is public, you even may consider vinyl, linoleum or tiles as potential solutions for high traffic.
