How To Find Your Perfect Office

inding the right office space for you and your company can be difficult, time consuming and not to mention, costly. A lot of people don’t know what to look for, or even where to start looking, when it comes to office space; as there are so many different options out there.  

Here are 3 things that we think are the most important aspects to think about when it comes to searching for the right office: 


When you are looking for an office, location can play a huge part in the decision-making process. You want to find an office that is in a prime location for your business. You also need to take into consideration the surrounding area; Do you rely on foot fall? Is it close to the city centre? Is it easy to get to? What amenities are nearby? These are among the many questions you need to ask yourself when viewing an office. Lastly you need to think about the travelling distance, is there a train or bus station nearby, what are the local travel links like for commuting? And do you need somewhere that is a central meeting point for you and your employees? 


With all around business costs sky rocketing, you need to factor in the potential cost of an office. Figure out what you can afford and what would be the best action to take thereafter. Would you buy an office building? Maybe lease an office? Or even consider Serviced Office Space? Each come at different costs and figuring out which type of office you’re in the market for will really help narrow things down. 


You need to keep in mind how you and your team work. Do you have large desks? Do you have a lot of paperwork and filing cabinets? It’s all well and good finding an office in the perfect area that is well within your budget, but if it’s not the right size for your team and any equipment, then it’s a waste of time and resources. You want enough space for you and your team to be able to work comfortably, not on top of one another and equally not so far apart that they can barely hear each other, you need to find the balance. Having the biggest office doesn’t necessarily mean you have a successful business. Also think about necessities vs comprisable features. For example; do you need a window, do you need a ground floor office, do you need somewhere that offers other services like meeting rooms?
