I have worked with customers to design hundreds of workspaces. I would like to share 3 tips that I have learned after many installations to help you avoid buyer’s remorse when designing and purchasing furniture for office workspaces.
Consider These 3 Tips to Avoid Regretting Your Office Design
- Maximize the Workspace
- Incorporate Desktop Power
- Create Space for Collaboration
Maximize Your Workspace
When it comes to workspace, you will never have enough. Even in a paperless society people still fill their workspace with reference materials, prototypes, and documents – not to mention the photos from home. If you have a 9’ wall in your office, instead of settling for a 6’ or even 8’ desk, why not maximize your space and extend the desk to 9’? Sound complicated? It’s not; watch this video see how easy it is to customize your furniture design.
Incorporate Desktop Power
In a wireless world we still need access to power. When working with clients, the top regret they have after installation is not incorporating power into the worksurface. Technology has come a long way. Interior Concepts would like to introduce you to the Axil-Z, which mounts flush with the worksurface creating a smooth look. Incorporate power and USB, data, VGA, or HDMI. Also, no need to be worried about spilling around the Axil-Z – its waterproof (and coffee-proof). Learn more about Axil-Z.
Make Your Desk Inviting
Collaboration is a must in your workspace. In years past, people could simply add a table to their office. Today, buildings are maximized for efficiency and most offices do not have that extra space. Conference areas and open workspace areas are great for large meetings or non-personal meetings, however, small personal meetings still need to take place. Make your desk inviting and welcoming by adding a collaboration area to the front or side of your desk.
