Small businesses don’t always have a lot of office space. But as your business and your team grow, you might not be ready to move to a bigger office for a while. So you need to make the most of the space you have available if you want to avoid raising your overheads. Luckily, there are a few things you can consider to help your business save space. Try these ideas to make sure you use your office space as efficiently as possible.
Digitize As Much As Possible
Most things don’t need to be on paper anymore. It can be useful to have some things written down or as printed documents, but there are so many types of information that are better stored digitally. You won’t need to take up valuable space with filing cabinets anymore if you digitize as much as you can.
Consider Going Open-plan
Open-plan offices are somewhat controversial. They began to get very trendy for a while, but some people are now saying they’re not conducive to higher productivity. However, if you’re willing to try out an open-plan office, it could help you save space. You might also consider long desks that several people can use, especially for those working as a team.
Create Flexible Meeting Spaces
If your business has one or two meeting spaces that you use a lot, you should think about how to make them as flexible as possible. If you can configure one meeting space to serve several different purposes, you’ll be able to use it for everything from team meetings to one-on-one meetings.
Move Your Records Out
As well as digitizing, you can also get someone else to manage your business information. You won’t have to have filing cabinets or servers so you’ll be able to make better use of your space.
