2016 is well underway, and if you’re anything like the members of the Kit Out My Office Team, you’ll already have made (and quite possibly broken) several New Year’s resolutions.
This year, why not do something different and make some resolutions for your business, designed to improve your office space and maximise performance over the coming year?!
New year, new office? Take your business to the next level - here are a few ideas to get you started...
Make better use of your office space
They say a change is as good as a rest, and reorganising your office to make more effective use of space can can make a real difference to your business.
If you haven’t moved things around for a few years, then there’s a very good chance that your business will have changed. New office technology, flexible working, long bench desks, hot-desking and collaborative spaces are changing the way we work faster than ever before, and you may be able to make better use of your current office.
Whilst office reshuffles can be stressful, effective planning will make things much easier. Do some experimenting on paper before committing to the move, and try to complete it outside of work hours to minimise disruption - we find a Friday afternoon works well to start afresh with on Monday!
The right office furniture
Of course, having the right office furniture will make this job much easier. Think about how much space you actually need – it might be time to swap out those old radial desks for more modern, space-saving solutions like bench desks.
How much desk space a staff member needs will depend on a few factors, such as:
- How they work – those in paper heavy/admin roles need bigger desks
- What equipment they’re using – a design station with dual screens is going to need more space than a laptop and copy stand
- How much storage they need – do they work in the cloud, or do they need space for stationery, papers and files?
At Kit Out My Office, we’ve got a fantastic range of office desks in a huge range of styles and sizes, all available at unbeatable prices.
Introducing a splash of colour
Is your office a study in beige, or finished in multiple shades of grey? It could be time to make a change.
There’s an increasing amount of evidence that the design and colour of your office has a real impact on the performance of your business. Introducing a splash of colour can boost the productivity, creativity and well-being of staff members.
You don’t have to go overboard when introducing colour to your office – using accent furniture, like our HD Colour Office Desks are an easy, cost-effective way to bring interest and colour to the space. Available in a range of colours, there’s something to suit every brand and office style.
Check out our previous post on how to add colour to your office for further inspiration.
Introducing company branding into your office design is a great way of helping to establish the values of your business, and instilling them into your staff members.
However, before splashing your current logo and branding all over the walls, it might be time to check that your current branding reflects the nature of your business. The start of the year is a great time to take a look at your visual identity to see if it can be improved.
Unless you’re a design guru, you’ll probably want to engage a professional branding expert or design agency to help you with this. Alternatively, you can always check on online portals like Fiverr and Guru to find a creative professional to give you a hand.
