Designing Office Spaces

It’s a mad rush to the finish line. I have one more day to submit my personal plans for my office fit-out to the office fit-out specialists for them to incorporate some of my ideas. That was an absolute mouthful – hopefully you understand what I’m saying. The office fit-out specialists said they were more than happy to take my style considerations into account and that they would incorporate them where they could.

They were very clear at the start that they are the best in the business for a reason, and that is because they effectively incorporate the ideas of their clients and industry knowledge to create beautiful office interior design. Companies in the Melbourne CBD that have had these office fit out specialists work on their office spaces have become more successful in the years after. Does that make sense? I don’t know. I’m in such a rush. What I’m trying to say is that getting office fit-outs by this company means that my business operations will improve as a result. Like anything business-related, increasing business productivity and having better operations flow is the goal. We’re in the business of making money, after all. 

I think it is very likely that, based on history alone, my business will benefit from these office fit-outs. Melbourne city-dwellers and office workers love spending time in new and modern buildings. It just goes with the whole Melbournian-vibe. Melbournians love being better than everyone else and having better things. That’s why I MUST get my designs to the office fit-out specialists by tomorrow! If I don’t then I won’t get to have any creative say in the fit-out process. Although I know for a fact that the fit-out people would do a great job, I want to have my own creative input too. I mean, I’m the one paying for it. Okay, I’ve got to stop talking! I’ve got to do my designs.

Best Office In Melbourne

Well, my office space looks absolutely fantastic. It’s crisp, sheek and very 2021. It has an expansive kitchen, multiple break out rooms and big collaborative spaces. It is the type of office that three years ago, people would’ve killed to work in. It just makes you feel cool to be there, especially seeing as there’s multiple recreation areas where employees can hang out or play games. It is probably the best commercial office design in the Melbourne CBD, and that’s not even me being biased.

Unfortunately, however, the incredible design hasn’t been enough to encourage my employees to come back to the office. Of the fifty emails that I sent out, only twelve of them said they’d be happy to come back to the office full time. That’s not enough to justify paying all my overheads. I’m in business to make a profit, not a loss. If I keep my office open for just twelve people, I would be making a bad business decision.

Fortunately, getting all these upgrades done to my office will help skyrocket the resale value of the space. I knew that when I decided to upgrade my space, it would be a win-win. Either the office fitouts in the Melbourne office would lure my employees back in, or they would make the space easier to sell if I decided to. I didn’t want to have to sell my office, but at least I’m going to make a lot of money for it.

I’m going to start listing all the features, fitouts and accessories of my office space on job ads so that I can sell my office. I’ll let my employees know that we’re going fully remote as of January 2022 and let them mentally prepare for that. I know that most of them will be happy with that, but for some, it will be a huge blow. Especially seeing as we have so many cool office features now.
