With the amount of time you spend in your office taken into consideration, it is important to maximize your space while creating efficiency. It’s a fine line between “organized chaos” and “chaos”, and from an outsider’s perspective, they could look the same.
4 ways to maximize office space
1. Declutter and define: Clutter can slow an office down physically and mentally, which hinders the effectiveness of the business. It is also easy to misplace something you thought you just had your eye on; when in reality it’s at the bottom of a pile.
2. Think vertical: The addition of shelving units can be monumental for offices. Our commercial buildings are “A” rated which means they can be built or altered to fit the needs of your business, so if shelving units will work for you – let us know!
3. Cut down on paper: Relying on a lot of paper can mean that there are miscellaneous piles throughout the office of documents that are unclaimed – or ones that didn’t need to be printed. Not only does it begin to pile up, but, it also creates the need for more filing cabinets and storage – both of which can take up space.
4. Reevaluate your desk: When we think of owning a business, we often picture a large office with an even larger desk. It’s time to reevaluate that picture and decide if a smaller-scale piece of furniture can do the job just as well. This will free up floor space so that you can incorporate other essentials into your office.
If you’ve tried these tips and found they didn’t help clear up as much space as you were hoping for, it could be a sign that you need to find a new place for your office.
