Offices for Start-Up Businesses

From the Printware Blog on Sunday 28th June 2015 in Consumer Advice, News

Arguably, an office is one of, if not the most prominent feature of a start-up business. Although a home office may suffice for now, having a space to share with your future, and existing employees is a great way to build your business and expand your services.

However, when it comes to office design for start-ups, it can be difficult to strike the balance between professional and inviting, without making it appear too clinical or childish. That is why we have put together the below guide of tips and tricks for start-up businesses looking to take their brand to the next level.


You may have visited hundreds of offices, or perhaps you've found yourself sitting in the waiting area of only a few. Either way, you will know the importance of giving an office a branded identity. Not only will this make your workplace memorable, but it is also a great way to motivate your employees and show visitors that your business is prepared and professional.

If you want to use identity as a core feature of your new office, consider the following:

  • Branded glass partitions if your new office is open plan
  • Smaller details like company mugs, coasters and pens
  • Large-scale projects like branded murals on white walls


Whether you're dreaming of the latest and greatest tech on the market or you're willing to spend thousands on quality technology for your office, let us stop you in your tracks. Yes, it may be worth the investment, but there are plenty of places you can look for affordable yet useful technology, like right here at Printware.

You see, technology has become an integral part of the way businesses thrive and operate today; so much so that it has become a true necessity. So, if you’re looking for tablets for brainstorms, projectors for meeting rooms or simply printer cartridges to ensure your printing needs are catered for, feel free to browse our site for more details.

Office Layout


Layout is one of the biggest things to consider when it comes to setting up shop in your new office. Not only do you need enough room to move freely between departments, but you also need to ensure that you set up your desks productively. For example, it would be beneficial to keep departments together in order to foster communication, and clustering teams within that department will help to promote a positive outlook.

Of course, this may take a bit of practice, but after a fair bit of shuffling and feedback from the team, you will eventually find the perfect layout.

These are just three tips for setting up an office if you are a start-up business. Of course, there are lots of other things to consider in terms of design, like the colour of the walls and desks. However, we will leave it up to you to decorate the interior. So, let your creativity flow and keep these tips in mind if you get stuck along the way.
