Tips for Designing Office Space

Here are some tips to a well-designed office space:
1.     Size, structure and location:
What is the size you are looking for, for your office in square feet? Does it need to have separate rooms for reception, conference, workstations, etc? Can your office be situated in a building, does it have to be a shop front or a pillar-less showroom space. Would a garden view be suitable or is a mall more suited.

2.     Colour theme:
The structure and location of your office will help you in selecting an appropriate colour theme inside.
Let’s suppose your office is shopfront, the wall colour that attracts attention and second glances will certainly help customers walk through the door! 
Let’s suppose your office is situated in a building, then patterned wall colour might help the entering customers feel refreshed? Colour blocking could also be another option!  Rokoko is the HomeFloor Plan Designer who will address all these queries!

3.     Nature of business:
Is your office going to address manufacturing queries, outsourcing projects, fundraising activities, software designing…? Let’s suppose your office represents manufacturing. A wall colour with bold monotones might set the right theme.
Let’s suppose your office represents software designing. How about a connecting lines-patterned theme! Can you envisage probable images better!

4.     Décor:
The décor that you choose should tie in with the nature of business of your office. Your customers must feel that your office takes its work seriously.

For a manufacturing office- how about steel and ceramic décor. Maybe a steel water cooler, rather than the plastic water dispensing unit. Wrought iron lamp shades, book ends. And maybe a ceramic vase shaped like a building or one that is hand crafted to resemble one of your own manufacturing products.

If your office represents outsourcing- a world timepiece will be quite fitting with the theme! Also, décor pieces that represent the countries that you have outsourced for or outsourced to. And a Buddha statue, bamboo shoots, or classy wind chimes could strike the right note.

For an office that handles fundraisers- definitely notes from the beneficiaries. Maybe framed and hung strategically on the walls. Maybe caricatured strategically onto the wall. One wall specifically portraying upcoming projects. And a standee conveniently placed with brochures and donation method details- with pen holder!

For the office that houses software designing, the wall theme could be abstract or patterned. To connect the visiting customer to the product. And not to forget a lounge area for the techies to unwind that could comprise of relaxing décor. Maybe with some squishy stress objects.
Come to Rokoko for the best Office Space Interior Design Ideas.

5.     Once you cover these basics, choosing furniture should be a walk in the park… pun intended!
Chairs, workstations, conference tables, coffee table…. And blinds, storage space, artifacts and all.
Well, let’s go to the drawing board and chalk out a plan using these tips. And should you find yourself ‘stuck’, Rokoko’s expert interior designers are at your service! They will help make your dream office space a reality- online!

Kitchen Designing is All about Utilising that Space!

Home is where the heart is and heart is where the ummm… food is!
The kitchen is any home’s pride and joy. All utensils, heirloom pieces, silverware, delicate china, cookware, electric appliances- all await the hand/s that prepares those meals everyday.
The kitchen need not be cluttered with all things related to cooking. With the correct design, it can be a welcoming space for a sit down breakfast, a quick cup of tea and snacks when friends stop by and helping hands that sort vegetables over the weekend!

Every family has its unique needs that should be incorporated while designing the kitchen.
1.     Bachelor - use the kitchen for: quick snacks, putting together light meals, healthy juices, maybe a weekend get together with friends with some grilling or baking. And a place to browse your laptop, read the paper, etc so comfortable seating.
2.     Couple- a working couple will want: quick breakfast, putting together light meals, juices and hot beverages, with elaborate meals over the weekend, maybe a get together with friends that includes grilling or baking. And a cosy seating arrangement to share this food!
3.     Couple going into family planning mode- oh, the requirement list will now grow longer! Apart from the meals, cabinet space, tall units requirement, make this a child friendly (and child proof initially), etc.
4.     Small family unit- here as well, the emphasis will be on good space utilisation. With a mix of tall units and short-sized storage.
5.     Extended family unit- here elements from all the above categories will need to be considered!
6.     Retired family- will have their family members visiting every once in a while. Hence while the focus will be on a comfortable kitchen layout, other aspects need to be touched upon.
And then we turn to the essentials of a kitchen:
The layout, cabinet placement, electronic appliances placement, the kitchen trolleys and good lighting.
What are the important elements that make your kitchen a welcome space? Let us know:
