Top Ways to Maximize Commercial Space Potential

Top Ways to Maximize Commercial Space Potential

Your commercial space design has a big impact on the way people interact with your business. When you maximize your space’s potential, you can increase engagement, efficiency, sales, and more. Here are some of the most important factors to consider when planning and executing a commercial construction project, in order to make the best use of your space.

Use Design as a Branding Opportunity

The first thing visitors notice is whether or not a commercial interior (or exterior) looks dated or in-line with current trends. Keep in mind though that following trends too closely can be dangerous because they change often.

  • Choose classic finishes that transcend the current design fads. This is the safest bet to ensure that the space will look fresh for years to come.
  • Color psychology is an important factor to consider, as colors evoke certain emotions in customers.
  • Use your brand colors in innovative ways, whether you want to increase creativity, energy, productivity, motivation, or some other feeling.
  • Unique design features can help increase brand awareness, especially interactive experiences.

Focus On Comfort

Selecting features that make people feel at home will make customers want to stay longer and return more often.

  • Ergonomics is a very important factor to consider because the comfort of your space will impact productivity of workers.
  • Comfort will also impact the likelihood that visitors will be able to relax and feel good.

Match Layout with Company Needs

Don’t forget to put yourself in the shoes of customers and employees. 

  • Depending on the type of business, ensure that you designate areas that keep people divided and create personal space, or spaces that promote community and collaboration.
  • The layout design can help with noise control and flow of traffic.
  • A safe way to ensure that the space is versatile is to build adaptability into the layout. For instance, you might consider implementing temporary walls or other features that can easily be changed as the business grows.

Seek Balance

Architectural features help establish equilibrium in the space.

  • Use walls or furniture to create “zones”, enhance the space’s sense of motion, or add to its visual interest.
  • The visual look and feel is just as important as the spatial balance.
  • Where there are dark elements there must be light/bright features to offset them, and where there is detail there must also be simple areas to allow viewers’ eyes to rest.
