Creating any new office space is a challenge, but medical offices face specific hurdles. Not only must medical offices house employee workspaces, but they also see plenty of foot traffic from clients and customers. Waiting rooms need to be comfortable and removed from busy workstations while employees need space to collaborate, conference, and take a break. Workspace Innovations can help transform your medical office space with thoughtful interior design and by choosing the right office furniture.
Sticking With The Budget
Before looking through furniture catalogs or selecting new commercial flooring, it is important to determine the overall budget for any interior design project. Consider the size of the space as well as the amount of transformation necessary. If you’re starting with slabs of concrete floor, then achieving the final look is going to take a larger budget. It is important to be realistic about the project’s budget so that all areas of the office are accounted for, including the break room. Another thing to consider is the cost of office furniture for each of your employees, such as desk chairs and workstations. The more employees a business has, the quicker costs will add up. Finally, do not overlook the waiting room. As this will be the first impression most people have of your new office space, it is very important to create a positive environment.
Designing For Customers and Employees
One important part of interior design is matching the look and feel of the business to the industry. For medical office spaces, a sleek appearance is often desired by both customers and employees. However, while employee workstations may be designed around accomplishing tasks and completing projects, visiting customers will require a more laid-back area to feel comfortable. Successfully blending the needs of your employees and customers will make a huge difference in the look and feel of the office.
