Bringing to Life the ‘Dead Space’ in Your Office

Every office has it.

Dead space, or space you’re certainly not using as well as you could be.

This wasted area may be a large hallway, a musty storage room, or a meeting room that is hardly ever used.

At the end of the day though, space seldom used is just costing your business money.

Therefore, we recommend consulting with an office design company like Niche Projects. We can help you rejuvenate that dead space in your office, and make it work for you.

In the meantime, here are some tips to bring your dead space to life.

Storage Rooms

Perhaps you’ve got an empty storage room, or a space full of junk.

Firstly, hire a professional rubbish removal company to come in and remove this office waste. Once that’s done, sort out your storage by going digital.

That means foregoing the need for hard copy files. Scan them all in to your system, then destroy them. This will save your business plenty of space.

Now, you can use this storage room for more productive activities.

For instance, you could turn it into a secluded, quiet area for your staff to catch a break or do some silent work.

Alternatively, you could create a kind of creative space, which spurs innovation and collaboration between employees.

There are a number of options, but the most important thing is that this space is now being used productively.


Hallways are obviously necessary to traverse the office.

However, sometimes they are either hardly used, or unnecessary space wasters. They might be unnecessarily wide, or just not required at all.

To better use this space, add some wall storage units to your hallway, for files and other bits. This will save you space elsewhere.

Artwork and plants can be added to make a more pleasing thoroughfare, and that might just entice people to walk that way more often.

In conclusion, you need to make sure that dead space is being utilised as much as possible.

That could be through a more practical use, or by simply making it a pleasing area for your staff to spend time in.
