Are you currently in the process of designing a new office space? Our Nashville, TN-based flooring and ceiling company installs floors and ceilings across the Middle Tennessee area, from Brentwood to East Nashville to Franklin. Regardless of the size of your business, we can help you pick out the perfect options. Here are a few things you should keep in mind when designing office space:
1.) Make Sure the Layout is Logical
Consider where the most traffic will be at any given time in order to make sure that you are putting rooms in the most logical places. You should also make sure that you have enough storage space for your facility. When designing your layout, it’s a good idea to talk with a professional designer or contractor in order to guarantee that the final plan is functional.
2.) Figure Out What Type of Ceilings You Want
Ceilings will substantially alter the look and feel of your office. Certain types of ceilings are better at reducing sound than others, which will help employees concentrate more efficiently. Here are some questions to ask yourself when designing your workspace:
How high do I want the ceilings to be? The height of a ceiling will dramatically change the feel of a space. High ceilings create an open feel, while low ceilings make the office space more cozy and inviting.
Do I want vaulted ceilings?
Do I want ceiling molding?
Do I want an acoustical ceiling or an exposed ceiling? Acoustical ceilings reduce noise and enhance sound quality, while exposed ceilings are often considered to be hip and trendy. Thankfully, Ozburn-Hessey can give you the look of an exposed ceiling with the practicality of an acoustical ceiling.
3.) Choose the Right Kind of Flooring
Some people prefer hardwood floors since they are easy to clean and provide a modern feel. However, other people prefer carpet because it muffles noise. Still others choose tiles because they are durable and easy to maintain. Here are some questions you should ask yourself:
Do I want hardwood floors or carpet?
Do I want a unique floor choice like bamboo or cork?
Do I want vinyl tiles?
