How to Set Up a New Office Space

If you’re the entrepreneurial type (and we don’t mean like Bill Lumbergh from Office Space) and are thinking of setting up a new work space, or simply plan to move your office somewhere else, there’s a lot you need to take into account. Here are some tips and things to keep in mind when putting your new office space together.

Reduce by Reusing

You can save yourself a pretty penny if you buy used office file cabinets and other previously-owned supplies. A word to the wise when buying used items: quality matters. Make sure what you get for your office is in the best possible condition. 

Analyze Your Tech Needs

Make sure you get a computer for every employee (and check that there’s a place to plug them in!), and consider what brand and operating system you intend to use. When it comes to copiers, choose one that can handle large jobs and is known to last: study various copier rankings online, or ask other offices what they use. 

Consider Cubicles

Cubicles give workers privacy and lessen distractions. Learn how much space you’ll have to fit them in (while subtracting areas you plan filling with other things, e.g. printers and small offices), and consider how big you want them to be. Also think about how many you’ll need, which you can determine by estimating how many people will work for you (or, if you’re just moving offices, how many already do).

Can’t Forget Furniture

Some may take it for granted, but it wouldn’t make much sense to have people standing up during a meeting, much less not have a table to sit around. You’ll also need tables and chairs for every individual work space, and the occasional couch for comfort.

Keep Plenty of Supplies

The world may be getting more digital, but most offices still require some tangible supplies, including pencils, staplers and paper for the copy machine. Factor these things into your regular budget.

Keep these things in mind and you’ll spare yourself any embarrassing moments involving missing something key to your office space.
