How to Avoid Moving by Utilizing Small Office Space More Efficiently
Your business is growing. You’re acquiring more employees, and more stuff, and you feel like your office space is becoming too cramped.
Your business will hopefully reach a point when you are forced to find a bigger space, but that point may not be now. Before you start looking to find a new office space, consider some of the below tips and tricks to help you make better use of the space you’re currently in.
1. Take advantage of vertical space.
Office Furniture Source has plenty of vertical office storage solutions, like cube organizers and shelves. These can help get stuff off your desk and out of the way which makes your office feel bigger!
2. Do some spring cleaning.
If you don’t need it and use it, get rid of it. Decluttering is one of the best ways to make your small office less cramped. Converting files and paperwork to digital formats can clear up valuable space and is a good place to start decluttering.
3. Hide and organize.
Cables and wires are something every office needs, but that doesn’t mean you need to see them. Investing in cable management devices can keep these necessary items out of sight and out of mind.
4. Let your employees telecommute.
Many employees don’t need to be in the office on a daily basis. By allowing them to work from home, you can dedicate valuable desk space to employees who need to be present for daily operations.
5. Rethink how rooms are used.
It can be tempting to have several meeting rooms, a conference room, a break room, and a big office for the CEO, but it isn’t the best use of space. Use large rooms like this to house multiple employees and consider having just one large room that can be used for meetings, private phone calls, and breaks.
6. Get rid of big desks and bulky desktop computers.
You don’t need them. Instead, switch to smaller, more compact desks that can house a laptop and one monitor at most. This not only saves on floor space but cuts down on the potential for desk clutter as well.
