4 Cool Features to Add to Your Startup’s Office Space
Startups are nerve-racking. It often seems like there is so much at stake, and that there are always new challenges to face. So, one way to boost morale and make things easier for everyone in your startup is to add cool features to the office space.
Here are four ideas that your team will thank you for.
An Open Concept Floor Plan
It takes a team to build a successful startup. So why not ditch the traditional cubicle setup in favor of an open-concept floor plan?
An open-concept floor plan will make communication and thus collaboration a lot easier. Plus, it’s a great way to take advantage of natural light – something that is often lacking in office spaces.
If you’re worried about privacy, you can always use partitions or screens to create temporary “walls” as needed. And if you want to get creative, you can use different furniture arrangements to delineate different areas within the open space.
An Indoor Pond
Who doesn’t like a pretty pond? Adding an indoor pond to your office space can create a calming oasis amid a hectic workday.
If you don’t have the budget for a full-fledged pond, you can always go for a more minimalist approach with a small water feature. A simple tabletop fountain pond can do the trick.
Whatever you choose, just be sure not to neglect necessary parts like pond aeration, filtration, and lighting so that your pond stays functional and appealing.
A Giant Mood Board
Mood boards have been useful organizational and inspirational tools for years. So a giant mood board is the right idea for a startup.
You use it to display your company’s mission and values or to showcase upcoming projects. You can even use it as a brainstorming tool – simply encourage everyone to write down ideas on post-its and stick them up on the board.
Plus not only is a giant mood board visually appealing, but it’s also highly versatile. You can change it up as often as you like, making it a great way to keep your space feeling fresh aesthetically.
A Relaxation Room
Startups are all about hard work and long hours and it’s dangerous if your team never gets the chance to relax. If you can swing it, a relaxation room is a perfect place for your team to unwind and keep burnout in check whether it’s for a few minutes or a few hours.
There are many different ways that you can set up a relaxation room. It could be as simple as adding some comfortable chairs and some magazines, or you could go all out with a TV, game console, and mini fridge stocked with snacks and drinks.
These are just four of the many possible features that you can add to your startup’s office space. So get creative and make your space work for you! After all, your office is where you and your team will be spending a lot of time, so it might as well be somewhere that you enjoy being.
