Whether you're a believer in Feng Shui or not, there's a lot to be said for ensuring you have a great working environment for you and your colleagues. There are certain basics that can make a huge difference to the way people feel about their office space, and seeing as it's the one room in which many workers spend the majority of their time - it's worth making sure you get it right. For example, low ceilings and rooms with no natural light are sure to spend spirits plunging, so they are just some of the things you should look out for when selecting office space.
On the other hand, it's also important that you choose a building fit for purpose - if you work with computers a lot (as most offices do these days) choosing office space that has windows that can easily have light blinds fitted to cut out glare yet still let in light, is essential - the last thing you want is for every single person in your office to be complaining of headaches after squinting at their screens all day long.
What's more, the office space you choose can have a number of physiological factors - on potential clients as well as employees. Ideally you want to choose a space that you feel echoes the ethos of your company. It's for this very reason that a large number of people search for something a little out of the ordinary when choosing a new office space. No one wants to represent their business as a cookie-cutter enterprise, that's why character is one of the most important concerns for businesses looking for a new home.
Office spaces that are oozing with character tend to be either in new builds with cutting edge architecture or in places such as converted warehouses. If you have a good space to work with, you're sure to find that it boosts morale and therefore productivity. An office with a little character helps your workers to express some character of their own too, by encouraging them to see their place of work as a interesting and engaging place to spend their time and invest their ideas.
When looking for office space for rent, make sure that you take all of the needs of your company into account - from the physical comfort of your employees to the impression you want to make on all-important prospective clients.
