Nothing beats watching your business grow – one day you're in a tiny office, and the next day you're moving into a bigger space.

Tips for Setting Up Your Office

Fill the space with supplies.

What’s an office without plenty of equipment and supplies? If it’s your first office, you might only need the bare minimum to get started. If you’re upgrading, you’ll need more supplies for your employees. Some common office equipment includes:

  • Desks and ergonomic chairs
  • Computers
  • Printers, fax machines, and copiers
  • Desk phones
  • Lamps and decor

Set up important services.

Computers are the brains of today’s businesses. They store the information that helps you place orders, keep track of shipping, and handle numerous aspects of your company. You’ll need to set up your internet services right away, ideally before you move into the office. Doing this beforehand will ensure it’s connected and ready to go on the first day. You should also set up other important services such as your phone and electricity, as well as contact the post office to change your address.

Design the most efficient layout.

A productive office is one with the most functional layout. Open floor plans offer a lot of shared space, whereas a closed floor plan provides more privacy. A modular floor plan gives you the freedom to change the layout as you see fit. Play with various layouts – and maybe even try a combination – to give your employees plenty of space with the right amount of privacy.
