If you are planning to set up your workspace in a commercial hub, then you must be aware that space is a significant issue. Most startups have to make do with small workspaces where space can become too cramped and uncomfortable for yourself or your employees.

In such a scenario, you must cleverly design the layout for your workspace in such a manner that it makes maximum use of the space available. But at the same time, you must ensure that it’s designed in such a style where your employees feel comfortable and productive. In other words, the layout of your workspace should be functional, creative, and friendly.

We’ve put together a few ways whereby you can save space in your workspace. Continue reading on to discover these handy methods.

Choose your workplace desk carefully

Since you want minimum wastage of space, you must pick a workplace desk which isn’t too large but provides enough space for a pedestal drawer. The number of drawers attached matters as well, as there should be sufficient storage space for your employees to keep their personal belongings and work material. The chosen desk should also be big enough for your employees to work comfortably.

Similarly, the choice of your workplace itself matters too. We offer the cheapest self storages and workspaces in Singapore, wherein the range of our storage units begin from 6 sqft and continues up to 730 sqft, whereas workspaces vary from 88 sqft onwards. In addition, our workspace rental comes with standard facilities that include lighting, a powerpoint, and air conditioning. More importantly, the workspace you decide on should also provide flexible and appealing lease terms. We are able to offer short term lease as well as contract transfer to all kinds of services and products within Work+Store or even our parent company LHN Group, inclusive of options like commercial and industrial spaces, pop-up store location rental, event locations, and so forth.

Create an environmentally-friendly workspace

First off, you could try reducing the use of paper in your office. Keeping everything in the form of hard copies will only mean that you’ll have to purchase filing cabinets to keep the files containing these papers. Filing cabinets are quite a massive furniture and can take up a lot of your workspace. Moreover, using paper excessively is not environmentally-friendly. Instead, you should take your paper documents and convert them to do digital files. Simply insert them into a scanner, do a couple of clicks on your laptop, and you have your digitalised version of your documents.

Other than being environmentally-friendly, safety in your workplace is important for your employees too. Our self storages and workspaces at Work+Store provides 24-hour accessibility and camera surveillance, so your space is well-secured and guarded at all times.

De-cluttering your workspace

If there is a space crunch, then you mustn’t keep any unnecessary things in your workspace. Check all the items, especially the furniture. If you or your employees are not using a particular furniture – then have it removed from the workplace. That way, it’ll become more spacious, and you can make way for other essentials – be it room for more work desks or cabinets.

Other than organising your workspace, selecting the right workspace can go a long way. For instance, we are able to provide spaces that operate as ancillary offices as well which are suitable for providing a conducive environment to manage admin activities. When a workspace combines with a storage unit – it helps business operations tremendously by making logistics procedures easier to manage and boosting efficiency in goods acquirement – resulting in an elevated level of customer service. At Work+Store, we have the cheapest self-storages and workspaces so you can take your pick and settle on the unit size, which goes with your budget and business needs best.

Designing the layout of your workspace and saving space doesn’t have to be an uphill task. All you need to do is to be detailed with your planning and carefully pick out the office essentials which your employees will regularly be using. This will help save space, make your office environment highly functional, and also improve the efficiency levels of your employees.
