Planning vs Plotting: How Designers Unlock Your Space's Potential.

Updated: Mar 27, 2023

When it comes to designing your workspace, it can be easy to fall into the trap of plotting out the space based on what you think you need. "I need a desk over here and an office over there." But the truth is, designing a space goes much deeper than simply plotting out furniture arrangements.

Plotting Plan - "We need 12 desks a meeting space for 8, a couple of storage units and a welcome area"

Seating total - 28

That's where planning comes in. Working with a designer can help you understand the underlying needs of your space, beyond just physical requirements. A designer works with you to uncover the nuances of your business and find solutions that you may not have even considered.

For example, you may think that your team needs a room for meetings, but a designer can help you explore alternative solutions such as collaborative breakout areas, meeting zones or even virtual meeting pods that fulfil your requirement but in a more inviting and interactive manner and often utilising the space better allowing more working positions .

By understanding the underlying needs of your business and team, a designer can help you create a space that works for you in unexpected ways.

Designers bring a wealth of experience and creativity to the table. They can see opportunities for your space that you may not have even considered, and can create a cohesive and functional design that maximises your space and resources.

Rather than simply plotting out furniture and layout, a designer can create a plan that truly reflects your business and its needs.

Working with a designer also ensures that your space is optimised for functionality and productivity. By using their expertise to create a space that flows and functions efficiently, a designer can help you and your team work at your best.

Overall it's important to recognise that designing a space is about more than just plotting out furniture arrangements. By working with a designer, you can uncover unexpected solutions and create a space that truly works for your business and team.

Don't settle for a basic plot – embrace the planning process and unlock the potential of your space!
