When it comes to designing your office layout there are a number of different things that you need to consider such as the number of employees that you have, their shift patterns and the work that you do. Some businesses prefer to have an open layout, whilst others will move departments into their own mini offices so that they can focus on the work that they do without being disturbed by others.

Here are some of the key areas that you might want to think about including in your overall office plan.

Reception area complete with Reception Chairs. This space allows you to greet your visitors and show them to the Office reception chairs where they can wait for their meeting to start. You will want to clearly signpost this area so that people can easily find it.

Meeting rooms are another essential part of any office space where you can take current and potential customers as well as hold department and team meetings. This space can provide a neutral place where important discussions can take place.

Breakout areas are another key place for your staff to be able to relax in and take some time away from work for a short period of time. This can be used for the lunch times and also for more informal gatherings such as celebrating birthdays and work anniversaries.
