Planning For Interior Design For Your Office

Planning for interior design in your office? Deciding the feel of the office; what it should show to the corporate world.
Office isn’t about a table, a computer on top and an executive sitting on a chair. It is about creating the ambience of a workplace which reflects the decorum of the office, the schedule and discipline maintained within it and the commitment to work. Interior designing gives meaning and purpose to the office. It is based on the owner’s imagination and the interior designer’s capability of planning and executing the owner’s imagination. The interior designer’s job is to plan out an outlay of the office in such a way that all aspects are covered with minimal wastage of both finances and space. He creates perfection with beauty and utility. A place where work is honoured and promises fulfilled. The office should be set up in such a way that it assures the clientele to the standards of work done and satisfies him about the genuineness of the working staff.

Office Space planning:

Whether to renovate or redecorate or to construct a new office, the essential thing to remember is, avoid wasting anything. The interior planning should me in such a way that the maximum space is utilised. Waste not, want not. A simple concept can also serve the purpose but designing it implies beauty in the best laid plans. Initially a blueprint is prepared outlining the various settings of furniture, fittings, electrical wiring, filers and such other necessities of the office. Often various outlays are put on paper, or now more commonly used interior software, so that options are available to the ones taking the final decision.

Office furniture

What are the preferences? A straight back chair or a padded chair? A large twenty seater conference table or a small four seater table? One projector for the conference hall or many projectors for each floor? Curtain on the windows or roller blinds? There are various options to choose from, varying from comfort to stiff professional type, pricing ranging from cheap to acceptable to expensive. Interior designers ensure access to different manufactures that provides various different materials and styles. The decision to a traditional or a transitional setting further constricts the options available. The office can be laminated or veneered. Synchronization is required and desired to the smallest of detailing, from the most suitable desk height to the electrical points to the storage area planned for the employees. The file cabinets should be so designed to accommodate all the paperwork with additional space kept for extras.

Construction is not done every year, once done it can only be repaired or renovated but not entirely so. Hence, professional skill and proper planning should be employed in order to build the right office ambience where even the employees get motivated to work, having proper sanitation, canteen, conference room and enough space to accommodate all employees. Optimum advantage will only be derived if the employees work to their full capacity which is only possible when they feel comfortable. The client will be attracted only when what lies within is reflected outside. The catalyst to all these is the interior or the look of the office, the more presentable it is, the better for the business.
