A recent article, 5 Tips for Designing an Office that Creates a Killer First Impression by Ahmad Raza says that meeting with clients, potential investors and employees is an essential part of building a business. Hence, your office should reflect your company’s credibility and prestige.
Your office speaks so much about your business personality, and not having the right impression can have greater consequences than you might imagine.
1. Design Smaller Spaces So They Look Bigger
- Choose a table and small-desk combination to make the space more collaborative.
- Use light colors to reflect light and to make smaller space looks larger.
2. Forego Private Office for a Prestigious Office Location
As a startup, you can work with your team in a shared office space so you can afford a more prestigious business address in a prime location. This will provide you with easy access to significant clients and get a better impression for your business.
3. Reduce Physical Storage Requirements
Use cloud-based data storage to reduce the physical requirements of cabinets and closets. Redesign storage space for functional areas (e.g. meeting space) in your office.
4. Ensure to have a Reliable Internet Connection
Make sure that your entire office has a reliable internet connection to avoid embarrassing situations during sales presentation and business meetings. Encourage employees to report dead spots and work with data providers to improve connectivity.
5. Secure Naming Rights to Increase Brand Visibility
When negotiating a new or renewed lease contract, work with the property-owner to increase the visibility of your company’s branding in the building. Naming rights will give you permission to have your brand in visible locations. This increases brand consciousness and trust in the business industry.
