Sometimes we have big ideas but only small spaces in which we can make those dreams a reality. Before committing to that fancy new boardroom table or deciding on colours for that range of workstations, take a step back and follow a few practical steps.
Make a List of Necessities
Write a list of all the things you will need to make this an effective and functional space. Of course, having a separate space to hold small and large meetings seems like a god idea but how often will you use it? Could your team possibly go out of the office to have large scale discussions? Could you even take smaller meetings from the comfort of your office? Products like the WATSON P End Executive Desk are the perfect solution to take smaller and more informal meetings from your office. The real questions is: Will a boardroom or meeting room increase productivity or even sales? If the answer is no then that space can be more effectively used.
How long do you expect to be here and how much growth are you hoping for?
We’ve seen it time and time again when an open plan office designed for 6 people suddenly explodes to 13! Are you going to outgrow this space before your lease is up? Are you going to need an option that is adaptable and can see an additional 4 desk easily added?
Asses your space
Measure the space you have! There is nothing worse than taking a saw to your newly purchased boardroom table! Check and double check everything and don’t rely on the real-estate agents floor plan.
Call in a Professional
