Five Interior Design Mistakes Corporations Make

Wednesday, October 8, 2014

Have you ever walked into a place of business and wondered who designed this as you pointed out all the things you notice wrong? You’re not alone. Many times businesses make mistakes when designing their interior space and it’s not often evident until the project is complete. What looks good in the planning stages can often end up a disaster just waiting to happen.

This is why it is so important to work with professional designers. Here at J. Design Group, we have the experience needed to help you avoid making common mistakes that can hurt business later. Putting together a design project is a lot of work. Between the planning, hiring contractors and choosing materials, it can be overwhelming.

If you don’t have any prior interior design knowledge, mistakes can happen. Below you’ll find five interior design mistakes businesses make that could easily be avoided by working with experienced designers.

Five Interior Design Mistakes Many Corporations Make

Managing an interior design project is a big job especially for someone who doesn’t have any training or experience working with large projects. This is the main reason so many mistakes are made that could be avoided by simply consulting with a design expert.

Below are five mistakes you want to avoid with your next interior design project:

  1. Cutting Corners to Save Money– It’s understandable that you need to save money to maintain your business but you can’t afford to skimp in some areas. Designing your corporate interior space is one of them. If your office looks cheap and outdated, it won’t make a good impression. You’ll also need to replace poor quality products more often than you should, which will cost you more in the end.
  2. Not Customizing the Floor Plan– What works for one company won’t necessarily work for another. You need to make a plan and create a space that caters to your specific needs, enhances productivity and encourages efficiency while also creating a positive image for your company. You can only accomplish this with a customized floor plan.
  3. Rushing through the Process– It’s easy to get in a hurry but if you rush through the process of creating a good design, something important will get overlooked. Projects get behind, deadlines are missed and it costs more and takes longer to complete the project than it would if you take your time and do it the right way from the start.
  4. Not Planning for Future Needs– While you cannot predict how large your company will be ten years from now, you can create an interior space that allows for a certain amount of growth. This way, your facility will still be fully functional for many years.
  5. Insufficient Lighting– Your employees need sufficient light to do their jobs properly, so poor lighting interferes with production and it can increase mistakes. It can also make your facility look and feel uninviting.

We can help you avoid these common mistakes and many others. Give us a call to learn more about us, along with how we can help you with your entire design project.

Get It Right from the Start

Sometimes, it’s easy to get so wrapped up with your growing business that you jump into projects that you’re not fully prepared for. Some things work themselves out in the end as time goes by but designing an interior space is not one of them. If you don’t get it right from the start, it could end up costing you double what the project should cost. It can also hurt your reputation since your interior space represents your company.
