Small Office Space Design Ideas

There are numerous things to remember, when designing small office space region. The aim of small offices is to maximize the use of office space. Functionality is the main characteristic of small office space design. Take the time to think the painting of the walls, desks and chairs and lighting when you make a decision on design ideas.

Painting the Walls
•    As the office space is small, choose a color that opens up a small office space area. It’s better to use light colors and decorative borders because light colors gives a spacious feeling to the office.  Dark colors tend to like a closed area and appears like small. Choose colors like light green, beige, lemon, tan and off-white for painting the walls. Use a color wheel to select complementary colors for the walls that match the furniture and other items in the office area.
Hire professional interior decorators for painting, and ask them about painting a wall mural on the walls. A wall mural can set a positive mood for the working environment.

Office Furniture
•    Choose office furniture like tables, cabinets and chairs, which match the office area. Take out all the mismatching office furniture, as small office space can look smaller and messy with mismatched business furniture.
As the office area is small, select the furniture which can provide storage space and maximum floor space. Tall desks with shelves, cubbies and space to hold equipment are perfect
Corner desks are very useful for small office space designs. The desk offers the value of traditional business desks, as reducing the amount of floor spaced used. Equipment can be stored on the top part of the desk and under the desk to get the most from this type of unit.

Lighting
•    Lighting has great importance in the office interiors. Ceiling lighting and natural lighting from windows make use of no floor space. Install florescent lights or even use business-style chandeliers from the ceiling to light the small office space area. Select a location for the small office that is near a window that can let in natural lighting for the area.
Check the lighting from sitting at the office desk. Make certain there isn’t a glare on the computer monitor. Check the lighting at different times of the day. The sun’s angle and position can make working with natural lighting unbearable if the sun is shining directly on faces or computer monitors.
