Utilizing the Space Under Stairs
A building that has more than two stories tends to also have a large amount of unutilized space beneath their staircases. One way to turn this area into productive space is to install shelving units or drawers as extra storage. Depending on the actual area, you may even be able to place desks under the stairs or transform it into a meeting area.
Most companies use storage and bookshelves that are placed in a horizontal configuration. This uses more space and can even reduce productivity. Instead, build vertical storage areas and floor to ceiling bookcases to get the most out of the space you have. For an extra bonus, consider using bookcases that have drawers on the bottom and space for books or files on the top.
Monitor Your Space
When you know exactly how much space you have to work with, you can use it more efficiently. Not many companies actually take the time to measure how much useable space they have. Using a person who is tasked as a space monitor will allow you to get regular updates on the space you have and suggestions for more effective uses as your company grows. In the same vein, it is also a good idea to get creative with how your office space is used. Ignore traditional layouts in favor of space-saving hacks.
Using the Right Furniture
The majority of modern offices use fixtures and furniture that is intended for collaborations and meetings. In most cases, these types of furniture choices are not space friendly. Make a point of choosing furniture that is suited to the space and helpful at the same time.
One example is a couch in the CEO’s office. Instead of using a large bulky traditional piece, pick up a transformable couch that folds out from the wall. Chairs and tables in common rooms can feature storage boxes underneath, and bulky furniture can be swapped for items that are more streamlined.
Build a Loft
Commercial spaces that feature high ceilings but a lower amount of floor space can streamline their efficiency through lofts or building mezzanine floors. If you own the commercial building or if you are in the process of building your commercial space, this is an ideal alternative. Building lofts inside of your space will instantly increase your available square footage.
