Design Ideas for Small Office Fitouts

June 11, 2020 Blog

A small office space shouldn’t discourage you from making your workplace into  an attractive and appealing space. With careful planning and help from a team of commercial builders in Melbourne, you can get the ideal office fitout that can make your office seem bigger than it is. You can get a lot done with the right use of colours, lighting, furniture and decor and make the most out of the space available.

Here are some design ideas for small office fitouts to get you started.

Light’s on

Darker spaces tend to look smaller and more cramped than they actually are and this effect is exacerbated in an already limited space. Counter this by using natural light to brighten up the workplace. Windows are a great source of light, but if your office has no access to windows, using LED lights is the next best thing. They are cost-effective and can be used to illuminate spaces in various ways. If you’re using partitions in the office, opt for glass ones so that they don’t unnecessarily block the light.

Single flooring choice

Having different flooring styles in a small space is not recommended. Using rugs, for instance, can break up the flow of space and make it more cramped. It’s best if you just stick to one flooring material and use it for the entire office space, whether it’s tiles, polished concrete or floorboards. Choose neutral colours to give the illusion of more space.

Lighter colours

Speaking of colours, use lighter shades and hues instead of dark heavy ones. If you do want to use dark shades, apply them sparingly and as highlights only. Lighter colours are more effective in reflecting the light and help achieve the impression of a larger space. Shades of light blues, greens, beige and white are some that you can play around with.
