Welcome to part two of our four part series on how to make your office space feel bigger
In the first blog we discussed how changing the colour of your workspace can have an impact on its appearance. In this week’s blog we will be discussing what impact flooring can have on your work space.
When choosing a floor covering for your small room it is suggested that you consider using a light colour, such as light oak or a light coloured carpet. If you are using hardwood then you should select wider planks as they will have fewer joints, thereby making the space look wider and this helps to open up the room. Laying the boards parallel to the longest wall in the room can also create the illusion of more space. Laying any flooring diagonally will help to open up the room by making it appear bigger and wider than it actually is.
Continuing the same type or even colour of flooring into adjoining rooms with also create a feeling of more space.
Some interior designers say that dark wooden flooring can also be successful. Try placing some dark material on the floor and see how it looks.
In next week’s blog we will be looking at how furniture can impact your work space.
Stay tuned for part 3 !
