5 Helpful Ways To Maximize Your Shared Office Space

April 2nd, 2019 | Best Office Furniture

Whether your company is expanding more quickly than you anticipated, or you simply don’t have the budget to move to a bigger office – which can be a costly proposition – there may come a time when you have to do more with less. In this article, we’ll discuss a few helpful tips and tricks you can use to maximize your shared office space.

  1. Invest In Modular Workstations

Modular workstations can be easily moved and reconfigured to adjust your office floor plan and layout, allowing you to quickly add more workstations, move your existing workstations, and change your office layout and floor plan based on your needs. With the right modular workstations, it’s easy to move your teams and employees around, and reconfigure your office to make the most of your space.

 

  1. Consider An Open Floor Plan

Open floor plan offices are extremely efficient. With an open floor plan, you can maximize available space – because employees will not have their own private offices or cubicles, in most cases. You can simply set up rows of tables or modular workstations, separated by dividers. This helps maximize efficiency and the space used in your office.

 

  1. Encourage The Use Of Nontraditional Workspaces

With the mobility afforded to employees by laptops and mobile workstations, you can encourage them to use non-traditional workspaces. For example, if you have a conference room that you only use periodically, you can encourage employees to meet with one another and work in it – or to work in lounge areas, and other such nontraditional working areas. Letting your employees work in flexible spaces helps your office feel larger and more spacious.

 

  1. Focus On Your Office Reception Area

Office reception areas are often overlooked – but offer a great opportunity for you to make the most of your office space. You can replace your office reception chairs with more comfortable units, and pair them with small tables – creating a new workspace, where your employees can work flexibly, while still allowing visitors to have a place to wait until their meeting or appointment.

By doing so, you can make the most out of an area that’s often unused – except when guests and office visitors come around – and get more out of your small office space.

 

  1. Use Office Planning For A More Efficient, Comfortable Layout

In most cases, offices are not “planned” – they grow organically. As your company grows, you add more employees and more desks, and you start to put up workspaces wherever you have the space.

But this is not the most efficient way to make the most of your office space. Consider using an office planning software or planning services, like those provided by Arenson Office Furniture, to look at your floor plan, and design a completely new office layout from the ground-up. By doing so, you can find areas where your office is inefficient, save space, and get more out of your office space!

 

Follow These Tips – Make The Most Of Small Spaces!

As your company grows, you’ll probably need to move to a bigger office eventually. But, if you follow these 5 tips, you may be surprised at how much more space you can find in your current office!
