Top 7 Factors to Think About Before Planning an Office Design

September 6, 2022

Planning the office space is not a cakewalk. Hundreds of things need to be considered before designing the office space. Planning the space can be overwhelming and, at the same time, tiring, even if you are planning to expand, remodel or move to a new space. To help you a bit, we have listed important factors to consider before planning your perfect office space.

Factors to Consider When Planning an Office Design

1. Space and Navigation

A good floor plan will ensure that it has enough space and that its purpose is fulfilled. Space management is vital; with less space, you can make the best use of it; utilisation and management of space is an art and science.

2. Lighting All Areas

Lighting is a vital element in the office space. Natural light keeps the workforce productive and motivated at all times. Also, individually controlled light in each cabin space gives extraordinary freedom to employees. The kind of lighting also matters; for example, fluorescent lighting hurts the eyes and makes people around it tired and down. These small steps can make a vast difference in their happiness and satisfaction level.

3. Storage Facilities

Does the office space have ample storage facilities for employees? Ample storage is necessary as employees must store their belongings and extra things. Putting extra things on the work table creates a mess, and messy tables are not good for productivity and employees' overall experience. Instead, you can give space underneath the table to store valuable and stationery items.

4. Privacy in Design

Privacy is one of the most important factors to consider. It includes both acoustic and visual privacy. The space should be designed so that an individual can focus on the work without anybody's interference. Practicality and efficiency should be kept in mind while thinking of privacy.

5. Unrestricted Movements

Cramped and cluttered conditions may encourage non-productivity and negativity. With the limited and costly office space in cities like London and New York City, it is very important to optimise space. Plus, the cluttered space creates obstacles in cleaning, accessing, and maintaining the furniture and other assets.

6. Safety

With the recent accidents and sudden tragedies in office space, safety is the utmost important factor to consider while planning office space. Therefore, emergency exits, fire safety, and alarms are the most important things in space.

Create Facilities and Entertainment Space

Gone are the days when people used to come to work only, but now employees consider the office a place of work and socialising. So create a special space in the office space where employees can relax, rejuvenate, and play games. The space should be able to create an experience where employees can relax their bodies and minds.
