Office interior design to help you reach your full potential
Whether you sign on the dotted line for an office before it’s even been built, or inherit a space that another business has previously called ‘home’, both should be considered your blank canvas. The basics might already exist, and some may even consider it ready to work in, but it still won’t be your ultimate ‘thing’. And regardless of what you’re told, an office is NOT just four walls.
So, when it comes to injecting your own personality into your office interior design, and creating a space that truly reflects the ethos of your organisation, where do you start?
With Redefined Group.
Our designers bring business visions to life every day of the week. They know the right questions to ask to understand what makes the company tick, they know who to involve in the creative process, and they each have their own flair to ensure the latest industry trends work for the clients we’re engaged by.
We don’t just think about aesthetics. Our interior designers work with our space planners to ensure the most creative and functional use of your space. And we’ll speak to key people within the business too – including your customers if that’s possible – to ensure a finished look that wows employees and visitors alike.
Your own brand colours are an obvious starting point for the palette of your office interiors, but we’ll also consider the ambience you want to create in each of your spaces. Different tones are known to calm, inspire and energise, so colour will be a big talking point in our discussions.
We don’t ask this question because we automatically set out to max it – it’s just an important part of an honest discussion that will affect the decisions we make moving forwards. But fear not – this doesn’t mean you’ll have to hold back with your design or break the bank to achieve what you’re looking for. We know how to inject design flair on a budget, and we’ve experience working with start-ups and multinational firms, so can cater for the full spectrum of requirements.
There’s more to interior design than what happens to the walls. We’ll think of every surface in the workspace, including floors, ceilings, windows, partitions and even the fronts of reception desks. Every area is a piece of the jigsaw that will reflect what you’re able to achieve with the design look overall. Then, when your employees and visitors are sitting comfortably, we can even help you serve them a fresh, aromatic bean to cup coffee!
When budgets are limited we often focus our interior design efforts on key parts of an office space, such as the reception and colleagues’ workstations. That means you set the right first impression when someone steps inside, and employees are motivated throughout their working day. But, where possible we try to maintain an element of consistency throughout, so that whilst the design may be simpler in some areas, everywhere feels ‘tended to’. If attention was only focused on client-facing areas, staff morale would soon dip, which is something no modern business can afford.
Our team of designers, space planners, architects and craftspeople are based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, within easy reach of the major motorway networks. But we don’t just look after clients in the North. We regularly tackle interior design, office fit out and refurbishment projects throughout the UK, with many in London, and with an online portfolio of office furniture, commercial coffee machines, stationery and other business supplies, working with us has never been easier, irrespective of geography!
Unusual textures, bringing the outside in and the creation of collaborative co-working spaces are just some of the things you may wish to consider when we conceptualise the first visuals for your office design.
But if you value tradition we’ll respect that too.
Many of our clients ask us to preserve the heritage of their brand when overhauling their interiors, for example. And others need to prioritise the confidential nature of their work so cannot afford to go open plan with their workspace. That’s why we tackle every project as unique, so that we can create a design scheme truly tailored to you. Soundproofing innovations are getting really exciting, we have premium meeting room furniture that wouldn’t look out of place in a FTSE 500 boardroom, and we often prioritise eco-friendly solutions to keep CSR managers happy.
There’s no such thing as a one size fits all answer to interior office design. The project starts – and ends – with you.
