If you are the owner of a commercial space or area or even an industrial space or area that you either rent out to other people, have people come in to work at, or hold clients who have come along to get some kind of services from you, then you need to make the place look appealing and design it accordingly. It is very important that the place that a person works at has the right look and the right design.
For many people designing and deciding the look for a commercial space is a bit of a challenge. People tend to think about what they will like the most and end up creating a space that will follow their own aesthetic and look, like you would do with a personal space. However this can be very problematic for you as the mindset needed for successfully designing a commercial space is very different from the one required for designing a personal space.
In a personal space the entire area can look as you want it to look. The walls, floors, and ceiling can be as bold or as subtle as you want it to be. It could be filled with designs or be absolutely minimalistic. However what you have to remember is that when you open these areas to other people, they must feel comfortable with the whole look and that is where you have to find a simpler look; one that fits the comfort levels of a broad group of people. Floorscapes, to the ceiling design, to the paint and pattern on the wall, this has to be remembered with everything. You need to try to go for simpler looks that are not too out there. Ideally something that fells neutral at its worst but otherwise looks like a class design.
