The corporate climate in Denver is unique to say the least. We see everything from start-ups with employees that all work remotely to trendy coworking spaces to iconic headquarters that have been around for centuries. This means that every new office space we work in has different wants and needs to accommodate in the space planning, furniture, lighting and other design elements. While the style of the office space in Denver may change, the fundamentals of a well-executed design plan do not. Let us talk about some of the key factors you will want to consider when designing an office space in Denver.
You don't need an interior designer to tell you that the design of your office space is important. Form, function, and aesthetic all play a role in the productivity, culture, and environment of your office. There are a couple of key areas of your commercial design in Denver that you really want to focus on to ensure a pleasing look that functions the way it needs to. When you are designing an office space, think about the intended use of each area and consider the kind of furniture you need for your customers and employees to wait, meet, create, do, and store. Let's talk about the must have pieces for each area of your commercial design in Denver.
Whether you are a start-up company just moving into your first office or you have been around for decades in a historic space, you are likely familiar with the importance of commercial interior design and the role it plays for both your employees and your customers. A beautifully designed space means nothing if it isn't functional. Alternatively, a functional space that is boring and bland could leave a lot to be desired. If you are considering remodeling your commercial space or are moving into a new space and want the support of a professional, these are the five essential steps that will make your commercial interior design project a breeze.
Over the last ten years, United States workplaces have broken out of the traditional cubicle barrier and adopted an open office floor plan. Coming into popularity based on the premise that an open office encourages a shared sense duty and supports a collaborative effort toward a common goal. As more and more offices adopt this layout, pros from all industries are questioning whether or not the idea of an open office is actually increasing productivity. Many commercial interior designers are torn in their opinion on the subject as well.
Gone are the days of holing up in the office, keeping your head down in your cubicle, and grinding out as much work as possible. The younger generations are entering the workforce and bringing with them a refreshing energy and enthusiasm for collaboration, community, and partnership that is leading us to design innovation across the board.
It seems that as I encounter people and tell them what I do for a living I am starting to get the same response and suggestion from people. It goes something like this:
“I’m an interior designer and I own my own firm. We do commercial & residential interior design.”
“Oh, wow that sounds fun! You know what neighborhood you should really get into…those people have large incomes and a lot of money, you would do well over there.”
Take a look around wherever it is you are right now.
How many different textures can you count?
The flooring, the walls, the upholstery (or lack thereof) are probably among your first considerations. But don’t neglect to take a look at that ceiling that never gets enough love…the shades on your light fixtures, the accessories and artwork in the room. All of these things add physical texture to your space.
