What to Look for in a New Office Space and Where to Find One

If you’ve ever had the misfortune of working in a dull, drab and lifeless office space, you’ll be able to vouch for the fact that it’s not a particularly inspiring place to be. So, if you’re in the market for a new office for your business, you need to make sure it’s somewhere that fosters the right creative environment for your company.

To make this a little clearer for you, in this post we’ve detailed what features make the for best office spaces, as well as a few examples of where you can find them.

What to Look For

You should consider the following with your new office:

The Right Location

Make sure the office is located somewhere that offers you access to the right markets and which suits the nature of your industry.

Modern Furnishings and Facilities

If you’re investing in a new office, then the facilities and furnishings should follow suit. This can make your workplace a more pleasant place to be and potentially help the appeal of your company.

Space to Grow

Your new office is likely a reflection of your desire for success, so remember to plan ahead and make sure you get somewhere that has enough space to grow your business.

Convenience for Staff and Visitors

Parking and access from public transport is another consideration, not just for the convenience of your staff but also for your visitors. With the latter, it’s important to impress them, which you certainly won’t do if they have to walk long distances, just to reach your location.

A Professional Image

Lastly, the décor of your new office should be on-brand and promote the professional image you should want your business to have.

Where to Find Them

Much like sourcing a residential property, you have a few options, you can:

  • Buy in a commercial property auction
  • Purchase your office from a commercial property seller
  • You may also wish to lease your office space instead

Whichever of the above you end up choosing it’s also a smart move to select auctions, sales or leasing from an expert provider, like Allsop for instance. Such specialists can also offer additional advice and guidance surrounding which properties or indeed sales methods are the best choice for your needs.

Now you should have a better idea of what you should be looking for; so there’s no time like the present to get started and invest in an office that creates the best working environment for your business.
