As a brand new business venture which has just started out – planning and designing the appearance of your workspace can prove to be a difficult task. Moreover, as the owner of a start-up, you are already occupied with brainstorming for methods to help your employees work efficiently.

One way to ensure excellent employee performance is to provide them with a functional workspace so they can work comfortably. For example, a self-storage allows employees to work on desktop-related tasks and manage inventory count in one place. In other words, planning and designing your workspace is of paramount importance.

Below, we’ve put together 4 factors you must take into consideration while creating the layout of your workspace.

Business goals

Depending on the type of your business goals, you will have to design your workspace accordingly. For instance, if you’re planning to start an online retail business, and you need space to store your inventory, launch marketing campaigns, and handle packaging and delivery orders – you have to design your space appropriately. One thing you’ll need for sure is extra storage space to keep your goods.

Work+Store offers the cheapest self-storages and workspaces, varying from 6 sqft to 730 sqft for storage spaces, while workspaces start at 88 sqft. We also have pretty flexible lease terms in the sense that the lease can be for a short period, and we offer contract transfer to various other products and services within our building or our parent company, LHN Group, which consists of event venues, serviced apartments and office, vending machine spots, and so forth.

Well-lit and bright office

While planning the layout of your office, ensure that you have made adequate arrangements to allow natural light to enter your office. Not only will this help reduce your annual energy bill – but also create a well-lit and cheerful workspace that’ll encourage your employees to work efficiently. Ensure you select the lights carefully, so they aren’t too bright and uncomfortable for your employees while working.

Besides lighting selection, you should make sure your workspace has the essential facilities to create a conducive work environment.

Designing the layout

The layout of your workspace should be functional yet well-designed. There should be adequate space for your employees to move about freely. At the same time, the design should be such that it makes maximum utilisation of the space available. Otherwise, going for a self storage may help provide you with the space that you need.

Your choice of wall or furniture colours matter as well. Bright or dark-coloured walls can prove to be distracting. Try to go for soft colours such as olive green and baby blue that has a soothing effect on the eyes of your employees and help them work comfortably.

Enjoyable and productive atmosphere

The layout of your workspace should be welcoming – your furniture should be both comfortable yet functional. Other aspects to consider, include creating a spacious workspace with cosy seating arrangements, a well-stocked pantry, and throwing in team bonding activities occasionally to bring the team together. Such a workspace will encourage your employees to come into office and enjoy their time while working.

At the same time, it’s also important to help ease the workload on your employees’ end, so they are able to complete their tasks efficiently. Work+Store provides workspaces that function as ancillary office, so admin and industrial tasks can all be done in one space. We also offer the cheapest self storages and workspaces, whereby 24/7 accessibility and camera surveillance are both included in the rental rates as well. By having office and storage space join together, it helps to streamline logistics procedures and goods acquisition which results in better customer service.

Thus, planning the layout of your office space is essential not only for the success of your business venture but also to ensure that your employees are comfortable. If your employees are satisfied, then it would guarantee the overall efficiency of your employees.
