Is there anything more exciting than moving your business into a new office? Whether it’s your very first space or a new home for your expanding company, finding a fresh spot to grow is a positive move toward your future success. Just remember to pick the right spot for you. The wrong space can slow you down in terms of employee morale and reputation. Here are some things to consider to find the best office space for you:
Experts are of two minds when it comes to how much you should pay in office rent. Some say you should find an office on the high-end of what you can afford in order to leave room to grow. A more upscale version of your current space will also reassure your clients and investors that your business is thriving. However, finding cheaper digs will leave you money to put right back into your business. Think about where your company is and whether a large space and prestigious address will eventually pay for itself.
Did I say “prestigious address”? Why yes, I did. An address in a popular neighborhood is always helpful for a company’s image, although it’s not always affordable. An office on the wrong side of the tracks, however, can give the impression that your company is struggling. Not only that, but customers won’t want to visit. Davinci meeting rooms are great places to work with clients before you find that perfect office in that super-hot neighborhood.
Aesthetics and Other Perks
Don’t disregard the way your office looks just because it seems shallow to worry about the decor or window treatments. A bright, clean space is much easier to be productive in than, say, a moldy basement with no windows. Pay attention to air quality. Can you control the heat and ventilation? How’s the parking? Can you get good food nearby? Happy employees and a happy you make for a positive workplace. And that translates into success for everyone involved.
