How to create more space in a small office

A cubicle or small office does not need to feel cramped, despite a lack of space. Some workers prefer smaller spaces because they can feel cozy and encourage more privacy.

However, a cramped or cluttered environment is bound to make any worker feel flustered. 

No matter an employee's preference, choosing the right office furniture has a major impact on the visual balance of the space.

Purchasing office furniture that is proportionate to the space is the first step to creating balance. Before making a purchase, remember to measure all business furniture. Make sure to not put too many pieces of furniture in a single room, and avoid an overabundance of accessories.

Choose paint colors that are neutral, light or pastel. White ceilings create the illusion of a bigger space. When choosing a rug, blinds or accessories, stick to a monochromatic color scheme.

To trick the eye into believing a space is twice its size, hang a large mirror on one of the walls. This trick works in narrow hallways as well. Glass objects in general, whether it is a glass table or a glass wall, provide a room with a more open appearance. 

Finally, using a vertical filing cabinet instead of a horizontal one properly utilizes space.
