Avoid These Office Design Mistakes!

Let us guide you in the right direction

Here at Mark Downs, one of our missions is to provide you with affordable and high-quality office furniture. Office design is significant. Many people spend their lives clocking in and out of the office and spend more time working than at home. Therefore, they should come into a well-designed office that’s accommodating. Clients should come into your office and be happy to return. Poor office design may hinder that. How you implement office design says a lot about how you feel about your company overall. We can help you avoid some office design mistakes. Keep reading to learn what they are.

Low-Quality Lighting

It’s frustrating to attempt to work without being able to see well, especially if there is nonstop computer-related work involved. Using the wrong lighting can hinder productivity. Dim lights strain the eyes, but lighting that is too bright can cause headaches. Be proactive in finding the right balance.

Neglecting Your Reception Area

You always want your reception area to be well-received. It’s the first thing that clients or patients see when they step foot into your office space. Here we offer efficient and stylish reception counters that work for any sized office space. You should make sure that this area is professional, organized, and welcoming.

Not Having a Mixture of Private and Collaborative Spaces

The open office space is high-in-demand when it comes to office design. However, not all employees will be a fan of this layout. Some need some privacy to be productive. The best office arrangements have accommodations that will suit everyone.

Ignoring Storage

Imagine walking into an office where there’s a pile of files everywhere and pens, paper clips, and other office items cluttering up space. This visual probably doesn’t sound too appealing. Having efficient storage aids in having an organized office space. Here we provide a variety of file cabinets to keep vital documents at bay. It’s also smart to invest in containers that will store pens, paper clips, or any other items needed for the everyday office routine. 

Designing a Dull Office Space

Creating the ideal office space goes further than just picking the right office furniture. The decor should never be a bore. Depending on the industry you’re in, it may not be best to fill your office with bright colors. However, it may help to add pictures that show off company pride.
