How to find your ideal executive office space
If you’re looking for an executive meeting space, you have several options, from an executive suite to a shared executive office space.
A shared executive space within a coworking space provides a setup that’s fully outfitted with basic furnishings and has access to some shared amenities like conference rooms, break rooms, a lobby, and more.
In general, an executive suite will have a lot more amenities and privacy than a traditional shared coworking space, but it will cost more, too.
To help you assess your needs and find a space that checks all the boxes, we’ll cover where to rent your space and how to pick the right environment, as well as tips to set your budget:
Where to rent your space
One of the most important factors to consider when selecting an executive space is the location.
Ideally, the coworking office you choose doesn’t come with a lengthy commute. More importantly, is it centrally located enough for your clients or employees to reach it without too much hassle?
If you can strike a balance between the two and still have options to choose from then, you’re in an excellent position to find space that meets most if not all of your needs. If location is an issue, you may have to settle for what’s available.
Choosing the right environment
Executive office space design comes in many different forms. Some spaces are quiet, almost library-like, with big wooden tables, leather chairs, and bookcases along each wall. They’re perfect for peace and quiet and getting things done. Others are more modern, with neutral color pallets and plenty of background noise for those who thrive around others.
The beauty of an executive suite is that you get the best of both worlds. You can customise the look and feel of your suite and sit amongst the crowd when you want to change things up. The best way to make sure you’re choosing the right environment is to take advantage of a day pass and test it out before committing to a month or more.
Assessing your daily needs
Think about your daily routine from start to finish. What exactly do you do from the moment you enter the office to the moment you leave? Knowing that will help you decide which executive space is right for you. Here’s an example:
- Arriving early or leaving late might mean 24/7 access is a must.
- Starting your day with a strong espresso means that you’d likely enjoy an on-site cafe.
- Hosting clients one-on-one might mean small conference rooms would come in handy.
- Receiving a lot of mail would make mail delivery a necessity.
- Winding down a long day with a stiff drink might mean an on-site bar would be a nice-to-have.
Your day-to-day activities will tell you a lot about the amenities you should look for. Some things, like printing or scanning, may only be needed once a month and therefore may be something you can live without it. Others, like the ability to book conference rooms the same day, could be an absolute must.
Setting a budget
Finding the ideal executive office space and doing it within budget can be challenging. It’s also important to note that budget will vary widely according to location and amenities. Always start by setting out your budget, and work from there.
In some cases, you may need to compromise on certain aspects that aren’t in your top must-have features in order to ensure that you’re getting the most out of the space for what you’re willing to pay. The last thing you want to do is over-extend yourself and have your office space become a liability.
It’s also important to leave yourself some room to grow when choosing a coworking office. A certain space may seem perfect now, but if it’s too small to accommodate your growing team, you may be doing yourself a disservice down the line.
