New Job, New Setting: Tips for Filling Up an Empty Office

Downtown revitalization has really made a difference in Jamaica, NY. Plenty of office space and business storage across Queens makes the area a great place for startups. Get ready for your new job by turning that empty office into a setting primed for business success. 

Maximize Your Desktop 

It's your primary work area, so make your desktop work for you. Back up traditional trays and containers with accessories that maximize productivity. Keep track of notes on the fly with a flat, desktop calendar. Keep track of your phone with a dock that features expandable charging options. 

Don't let personal stuff clutter the desktop. Invest in a sturdy coat rack that can handle jackets, umbrellas, and even a light blanket for chilly days in the office. Fill up desk drawers with things like noise-canceling headphones and a personalized first aid kit.

Zone Your Workspace 

Break up the space in your new office by using furniture placement to designate zones. As you arrange things, allow plenty of room for foot traffic around these strategic areas.

  • Your Work Desk: Position your primary work station in a quiet place, and pair it with a comfortable chair.
  • A Paper Zone: Create an area for handling paperwork by grouping file cabinets, book shelves, and small tables.
  • An Electronics Center: Let scanners, copiers, printers, and charging stations share space and cable organizers.

Save Room and Money 

Business storage is a smart investment when you're setting up a new office. A climate-controlled storage unit lets you archive paper billing and invoicing, trade publications and important records. Off-site storage saves office space with extra room for everything from spare furniture to sales samples. 

Compare the cost of commercial square footage with an affordable self storage unit. It makes good business sense to free up expensive floor space at the office with cost-effective storage space just down the street.
