An office is more than four walls and a desk. Choosing the right office can help you improve your workflow, get more done, and grow your business. Depending on the size of your team and the demands of the work, you might choose a coworking space, a private office, shared office, a whole building, or even just your garage as an office space. With so many options, how do you choose the office space to fit your business? 

Here are three things to consider: 

1. The size of your team 

If you’re a solopreneur, your needs are going to be very different from a startup with a half-dozen employees. Get a space that’s too small, and people will be too busy banging into each other to get any work done. If the space is too big, you’ll end up with a higher rent check and a poor return on investment. 

Coworking space or a small office is perfect for a solopreneur. Bigger teams might upgrade to the big office or rent a handful of offices next to each other. 

2. The nature of the work

Think about the logistics of running your business. Do you keep inventory on hand? Do you have regular team or client meetings? Is a desk and a chair enough for you, or do you need more and bigger equipment to do your job? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you might need a bigger office.

At College Park Executive Suites, all tenants have access to: meeting rooms with presentation equipment; a break room with coffee, tea a refrigerator and the occasional surprise treats; and a copier room with printers, copiers, fax machines and shipping supplies. Access to these amenities can allow you to stay in a smaller office, or free up space in a larger one. 

The Copier Room at College Park Executive Suites has copiers, printers, scanners, and fax machines. It’s stocked with shipping supplies and even some business books to help you sharpen your skills. 

3. Expected rate of growth

Finally, think about how quickly you expect your business to grow. If you intend to double the number of employees by the end of the year, you should pick an office space to accommodate that. If you intend to increase revenue, but not staffing, you can stick with a smaller space. 

To help your business stay flexible, College Park Executive Suites offers one year, six month, and month-to-month leases. Choose the one that fits your business now and into the future. 

College Park Executive Suites removes the risk from choosing an office space. As your business grows you can easily upgrade to the next size up or add additional office(s). No need to relocate or change your address. With our accessible location just off I-64 in Virginia Beach, free parking and a complimentary coffee and tea bar, you’ll never want to leave.
