Each office space works in a unique way. There are many factors which contribute to maximising the efficiency of your office design. Regardless of whether you need home office furniture or commercial office furniture the principles are the same.
Haddon Kitchens and Cabinets have been designing, manufacturing and installing custom office furniture paired with a kitchen renovation project in Brisbane for many years. We have found that office fit outs with custom furniture work well from the beginning, avoiding costly downtime associated with re-jigging the office to make it function well.
By personally designing your office space you can add all the elements which your business or home needs. For instance, a professional draftsman or architect will need a vastly different office fit out to a home office used for homework and bookkeeping.
Common factors in all well designed and productive offices are:
Utilising natural light is essential. A good source of natural light = better productivity and happy staff. Reduced exposure to natural light can affect the mood, and ultimately health, of employees.
As we constantly downsize our lives to keep costs minimal we are in danger of creating office boxes. Studies have proven that open-plan, uncluttered and bright office spaces are easier to work in and foster greater team building within a workplace.
Allowing time out or break out spaces in your office gives your staff an area to relax on a break or speak and meet casually. This is not the office kitchen which is essential but not always a place to meet. The space needs to be set aside to permit communication within the office on a non-formal basis.
A clutter-free, tidy office fosters tidy and efficient work practices. Practical office storage solutions are essential when retrofitting your office with custom office furniture. A place for everything and everything in it's place. This also reduces wasted time looking for things which often float around the office - staplers, paperwork, pens etc.
This one is a no-brainer. Spend the money on good quality custom office furniture and avoid the costs of replacing cheap, badly made furniture in the long run.
