What started as a stand-by use of space, a substitute while you make your plans, has now evolved into an entity of its own. Coworking has created a niche for itself in the scheme of changes in the business world. With an ideal workspace being the need of the hour, many space owners have converted into coworking space providers. Renting out their office space to freelancers, business men and women, students, startup engineers and the likes, they are already making a foundation strong enough for the latest trend in the work culture to flourish.
Although that is said, having an office space big enough might just not be ‘it’ to play ‘host’. A series of other investments seem to be lined up before your space can be tagged as the next coworking hub! Ergonomics, offical stationary, ideal office space that can be shared for coworking, workdesks, cabins… and the list just goes on. But what if there was a way to minimize these expenses?
How about I say yes?!
There are a range of DIY tips and techniques that can be adapted to hike up the cool quotient of your workspace. And that comes not just with minimized expenses but also a spiced up version of a very popular artisan – YOU!
So lets get on with how best we can spark up our workspaces and make them the next in thing for all entrepreneurs – young and old.
1. Setting Up Some Awesome Wall Decal
Believe it or not, the most economical object that can shoot up the ergonomics of your workspace is playing around with the wall decal. From textures to paints to doing it up with wires, lights, books, just about anything you can lay your hands upon, can give a dramatic and yet a warm effect to create that much needed work environment. Coworking has already become a big hit in the west with the enormous lack of space around. This has encourage workspace providers there to explore decor options with unique styles. With coworking catching up swiftly in India, we can make the most of our office space by giving a slight if not complete detour to the classic professional look.
2. A Library Of Sorts
Yes! You read it right. A library but only in parts. Stacking a collection of simple business magazines, news papers and books can add that extra detail to your already done up workspace. Simply use a cabinet, shelf or even just a plank and stack up those information banks atop. To add some spark, paint a wooden ladder in bright strokes and place it against the plank. It is going to be a show stopper – have my word for it!
3. Creative Yet Professional
“Your office reflects your personality”! Therefore, there is no rule book that declares the requisites of an office space.
Keeping your office space simple and formal or jazzing it up is up to you. Although with the current work environment, coworkers tend to be on a look out for a space that is both warm and welcoming, where they can work in isolation yet also be able to mingle amongst other coworking professionals. Bringing in a wooden flooring with a nested seating or a scattered space setting, colored wall themes or playing around with textures; getting intelligent quotations on cushion covers for a couch or motivational quotes on the meeting room desks. These are just the beginning to the vast realm of options available.
4. Scheduling Office Supplies V/S Stocking
Agreed that we believe in stocking basic necessities in hand rather than struggle in crisis, but sometimes this thought can be challenged. At the least, when we are talking about coworking office spaces. In today’s era of smart buying, space managers can take to online scheduled shopping where in supplies can be scheduled on a monthly basis with a minimal annual fee. Therefore, no more struggling for stretching hours for tasks that can be dealt with much ease. This simple action will reduce a lot of space otherwise used for stocking.
5. Doing It Up With Light
It is a well known fact that lights are one element, that if played with effectively, they can enhance the look of the dullest of spaces. Then why not explore how you can do up your office space or shared desk unit with simple DIY lighting options? Making use of natural sunlight with skylight window if possible can be one great option. There are also many simple DIY solutions to use lights as decorative elements.
So these were the few ‘Do It Yourself’ options out of the many out there to spark up your coworking office space. A trend that has already made its mark, coworking is the new ‘in thing’. Make the most of your spare office space, spice it up and let the creative minds use it to ignite awesomeness.
