Although office interior trends come and go, one thing that remains true is that your office space is a reflection of your business. You don’t have to follow every single office design trend year after year, but taking the time and effort to plan your office space can do wonders for your brand reputation. A well-planned office can also help to keep employees happy, too. To help you get the most from your office interior ideas, we have put together a list of mistakes to avoid.
Stay Clear of These Office Interior Mistakes
The right workspace can make all the difference to employee productivity and even mood. Make sure that your office interior is designed to inspire and motivate, by avoiding these commonly made mistakes.
Lack of planning.
The biggest mistake of all is to not put any thought into your office space at all. Deciding on a whim to make changes and then moving a few desks around or adding a plant or two is not going to produce the same results as a planned update that takes numerous factors into consideration. You need to think about zones, for starters. This could include a work area, with tables and workstations that create a good flow; a communal area for meetings and brainstorming sessions; a boardroom or client meeting area; and even an employee relaxation or dining area. Think carefully about your requirements for each area. Will you need counters? Can you create a seamless work area with a surface finish that blends into the design of your office? Make a list of everything you plan to do and everything you will need to make things happen.
Something else you will want to keep in mind is your colour scheme. Picking the first colour you see for your countertops, desks, tables, storage, couches, walls, carpets, and cubicles will end up in a very mismatched space that does little to inspire creativity. Taking the time to plan a colour scheme around your brand is key, considering factors such as colour moods and industry trends. This will make it far easier to choose furniture and countertops in a way that creates a cohesive space.

Don’t forget to include your reception area in your plans, too. This area is often overlooked during when setting up office space. This is the area that your clients see on their arrival, however. It can often be a major deciding factor in how your brand is perceived. A messy, unwelcoming reception area can put people off, making them wonder if your entire business is equally disorganised. Make the right impression from the very start, with a beautiful reception counter finished in high-quality materials such as Staron Solid, for a look that sends a positive message every time.
Stay clear of these mistakes, put a bit of effort into your design and make sure that your office space truly reflects your brand values and energy.
