When designing small offices, there are some strict office design rules to follow. From the layout itself to the colors and patterns used throughout the space, there are plenty of factors to consider to maximize your small space.

Light & Bright

If you are planning on painting your office or in the process of choosing fabrics for furniture or shades, be sure to choose colors that are light. Color choice actually can impact the appearance of a room.
Light colors open up your space and allow the space to feel open and inviting.

Also, be sure there is plenty of light. If you have access to windows, make the most of them by letting in as much natural light as possible. If you have no windows or small windows, add plenty of bright lights to the room to liven up the space.

Functional Furniture

When developing your small office design, think about the best layout your furniture. Create additional space by choosing small pieces or positioning the furniture along the walls or in the corner.

Be sure to choose pieces that are light and airy with minimal patterns and opt for furniture that provides added functionality such as items that feature cable and cord management systems, added charging docks and more.

Organization & Storage

Another way to maximize your space and give the illusion of a larger area is to keep your office clean and clutter-free. Utilize your vertical space for additional storage and ensure that everything you need has a proper place. Take it a step further by labeling and storing items. This will help you make the most of your storage areas. The less clutter in your workspace, the more you will feel you have the space to freely move about your office.

Minimalist Décor

When adding additional decor, keep it minimal. Less is always more in office design – especially in small spaces. Choose decorations that have clean, modern lines, and only add items that you truly need in your workspace. It’s ok to add a little personality at this stage of your office design process, but it is still important to keep your overall space in mind to ensure that added decor doesn’t take away from the illusion of a larger office.
