Make sure your office space fits your needs

Company’s come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you have 1 other person working for you or 1000 when making the choice for your office space make sure to take future growth in mind too. If you have 1 person working for you, you might want to get an office space big enough for 1-2 more people. Of course, you want your company to grow and when it does you will need space for the new people coming in. At some point, you may grow to the point where you need an extra office alongside the original. With the expansion of your company, you may even require an office in a different country to broaden your horizons for the success of your business. For example, if you’re predominantly based in the USA, perhaps you want to start a branch in the UK, or perhaps you’ll be looking at beautiful offices based in Germany, as seen on The choice is yours!

Along with the growth of your business you should also consider the style of your business. When people walk into your office do you want them to feel like they are walking into a home type environment, or are you all business all the time. This will all depend on which business you are in. BE Offices has a great selection from new wave to the home feel.

Decorations for your office are a biggie too. If you went from a small area to a bigger area, make sure you have art to fill the walls and furniture to fill the space. Adding a few plants can also make a great touch to any office. I love live plants, but if you travel a lot maybe a few good looking fake plants can make the difference.

Don’t forget that you should also make sure that your business has all the equipment that you need. You need to make sure that there are enough computers for everyone (along with having the right number of desks and chairs). It doesn’t just stop with computers though, you should also make sure that you have a good telephone system in place, particularly if you are keen to keep your customers happy. Make sure that your office fits with all your needs and you should be all good.

Year it was built or renovated. I know this one sounds a little weird, but these days we have a lot more to plug in and a lot more technology that goes into running a business. Making sure the wiring can handle what you need, and the internet is not going to be going out all the time is a must. Another thing to look out for is outlets, make sure there is not only one per a room. You’re going to need more.

Last but not least think about distance. Let’s be honest no one wants a two-hour commute to work because of traffic. Make sure that when you pick where your new office is going to be that you won’t be driving a ton of extra hours each week.
