  • Make an office design plan.

Before taking any major step with regards to your office interior design, you would want to set a budget first, and know what types of changes you want to invest in. If you have the budget, you may want to hire a seasoned interior design for an efficient office makeover

  • Never overdo the decorations.

There is nothing worse than working in a bland environment with no office decorations and character. If you want, you can include inspirational quotes, art pieces and some office plants. Just don’t overdo it. 

  • Let your employees choose.

According to research, people experience  higher job satisfaction when allowed to control their workspaces’ set ups. This means letting them arrange office furniture pieces in any order they want. Don’t forget to give them plenty of options for their workplaces. 

  • Remove uncomfortable furniture.

Before arranging furniture pieces, check if you really want to keep them. Poor and old furniture can give your employees some health problems like back pain, migraines and eye strain. Looking for ergonomic desk chairs is a good start.

  • Prioritize variety.


Remember, there is no fixed formula in effective office design. You need to take into account the needs of all your employees, the quality of the entire space, and all of the other specifics. Though, each office setup must learn how to focus on variety. 

  • Note all technological requirements.

Set a meeting with your head of Engineering or IT department. Consult them on the most effective way to arrange your work space to accommodate all technological requirements. There are quite a lot of factors to consider, from space for screens and projectors to proximity to WiFi routers and outlets.
