Most people don’t realise that there is a difference between commercial and residential interior design. Residential designers may have an easier job of making changes because it will be a smaller space. They must also consider budgets, the practicality of the design and deal with smaller areas. Most commercial designers will also say that the above things must also be taken into consideration, but architecture and others will, as well.
Homes may not require full functionality, but offices do. Therefore, designers must determine how to use every bit of space available while making everything look pleasing to the eye. Therefore, understanding architecture is essential to overcome the challenge of getting the most space.
Most commercial buildings have multiple offices, reception areas, meeting rooms and more. Everything must be cohesive, even if you don’t want everything to be repetitious. While repetition is used to create uniformity, you also want personalisation and customisation options, so everyone feels comfortable.
Without balance, customers and employees may find the building less inviting. Balance means ensuring that the furniture, colours, styles, and everything else fit well together, even if they don’t necessarily match.
Residential homes have a lot of leeway when it comes to colours and most commercial spaces do not. The interior can be almost any colour imaginable, but most businesses prefer neutrals, such as cream and tan to tie everything together. However, splashes of colour can be used to draw the attention or to create balance and modernity.
Chances are, the interior of your building will remain the same, but you may choose to move walls or windows. Sydney Office Fitout Company can help you may your rooms feel bigger and help you decide where windows or walls should be placed in the new office.
