More often, small businesses are startups are eschewing from renting a lot of office space they don’t need and are instead looking to rent out small spaces in a co-working environment. These shared spaces are available for rent, and small businesses can take over certain areas of the big room for a fee. Particularly popular in the entrepreneurial world, co-working environments are a cost-efficient environment.
However, it’s important when sharing office space with other companies to make your space your own. Depending on the rules and regulations of the communal space, you should try and make your own brand stand out as much as possible. Consider buying logo mats around your workspace, so whenever you have potential clients, business partners or other guests, they know exactly where your space is.
You can also take the opportunity to add your branding in other areas of the workspace. Consider having a sign with your brand if you’re near a wall, or making signs on all of the desks that your company owns. This can help separate your space from everyone else, providing a welcoming environment to anyone who might visit. You may just be renting, but you want to make sure the space is still your own.
