3 Ways to Maximize Commercial Office Space , Rochester, New York

As a business owner, you look for ways to save money and increase productivity. Architects routinely transform inefficient workspaces into more useful and attractive places. These tried-and-true ideas may help you maximize your office space. 

How to Make the Most Out of Your Business Work Area

1. Consult Employees & Monitor Space 

To understand and maximize the space in your office, measure it and monitor its use. Assign someone to evaluate the areas, and talk to the employees about what they need and what changes they want to see.

Their responses will help you set priorities for solving problems they may have in their work environment. For example, reconfiguring the open workspace to add cubicles or movable dividing walls can address an employee’s desire for more privacy, lower noise levels, and fewer distractions from coworkers. 

2. Purchase Practical Furniture

architectsMaximizing the effectiveness of your office space may mean buying new furniture. Employees may experience problems including eye strain, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, and migraine headaches from using poorly designed or old chairs and desks.

Consider purchasing desk chairs that offer ergonomic design features such as neck and back support and the ability to change height, width, and depth. Features such as swiveling, padding, and adjustable armrests can help your employees stay healthy and productive.

3. Store Items Vertically

Horizontal storage units take up valuable wall and floorspace. To gain more workspace in your office, use vertical cabinets or bookcases.

Installing floor-to-ceiling shelving with drawers in the lower sections can be a wise alternative. This configuration preserves space, gives you a place for storing infrequently used items out of the way, and provides easy access to what you use often. By working with an architect, you can design or reconfigure and furnish your space to make the most efficient use of it.
