Here are some things to keep in mind when brainstorming the perfect furniture arrangement;
Keep the Entryway Clear
It’s best when the main entryway has as little furniture as possible. By placing visually heavy objects; huge tables, bookshelves, etc., away from the door, you will effectively be creating the illusion of a more spacious room.
Typically, you want visitors to get a view of the entire space when they walk into the room. That way, they don’t have a visually shrunken view of the area nor is the flow of traffic impeded.
Generate a Visual Balance
This feeds into the previous point. It’s important to distribute weight across the space so that a balance is established. Essentially, try not to stack desks, lamps, and bookshelves in one corner and leave the rest of the room with no furniture at all.
Remember, visual balance can be attained with the decor itself just as much as the furniture. For instance, if you have a desk on one side of the room, put up some statement art on the other so that the entire space is well-balanced.
Be Mindful of the Flow of Traffic
The last thing you want to do is hinder your employees’ movement by placing furniture in awkward locations. That’s frustrating and can actually cause the room to look cramped, thereby increasing employees’ stress levels.
Over and above that, a cluttered room can actually be a fire hazard and impede evacuations in times of an emergency. This is why, when generating floor plans, designers leave a 3-foot wide walkway to provide more room. In this vein, place cabinets and bookcases closer to your desk so that aisle traffic moves freely.
Don’t Totally Sacrifice Form For Function
Ergonomics are so important to create a healthy and productive work environment. Your desks, shelves, and storage should be well constructed so as to provide optimal benefits. However, you cannot sacrifice visuals in the bargain when chasing the most functional furniture.
People are creatures of the eye after all. Many offices have “soulless cubicles” that lack warmth and personality. Certain embellishments like wood, artistic pieces, and even modern metal furniture can improve the beauty of the workspace and make employees feel comfortable and connected.
