Although Office Innovations concerns itself primarily with the interior look and feel of offices, when we come across pertinent and helpful information we like to share it. Hence these tips even though they are not directly relevant to interior office spaces.
First impressions are lasting ones. The outside of your business often says more than you could ever verbalize, which is why you should take care to pay attention to its upkeep as well as its design. If you market yourself as a company that is detail oriented but your exterior is sloppy, you will be sending conflicting messages.
When deciding on the type of message you want to present to clients, you may want to follow a few guidelines. Here are a few tips to help you along the way.
Understand and appreciate light
Lighting, whether natural or artificial, can alter a work environment, which is why you should pay particular attention to the type of illumination that your company receives. Soft white lights add to a building’s elegance. Hard fluorescent lighting, on the other hand, presents an atmosphere that is edgier. It is better to compare and contrast various lighting options to get the ideal feel for your business.
Establish cohesiveness in your space
The only time that customers should feel like you’ve thrown various objects together in the design department is if you aim to create a collage type of atmosphere. In all other instances, your goal should be to select items that can happily co-exist in some way, shape, or form. Using your knowledge of lighting in your space is the best way to establish a cohesive environment.
Place emphasis on the front entrance
Bold colors can be distracting in business environments. The front door, however, is the exception to the rule. You want your front entrance to stand out so that customers and clients can remember your company. Choosing two shades one of the most effective ways to create a memorable design that customers may love. Adding a few plants and rugs to the entrance could serve to enhance the mood further.
Remember that your office space should be an extension of yourself and the company you have worked hard to build. Office Innovations have helped hundreds of businesses of every size across the state of Florida with all kinds of office installations. Contact us today for a consultation!
