Designers Help Market Commercial Real Estate
During a time when the commercial real estate market is competitive, agents often hire designers to create the right atmosphere. While designers often make a residential home seem more livable, their goal when dealing with commercial properties is to make the space seem workable. Investors want commercial real estate properties that are in a good location. But they want the interior design to match the tenants whether they are doctors, lawyers, dentists, and insurance agents or massage therapists.
Texture in office spaces
One key design element for office spaces today is the use of texture. Designers work to achieve a tactile response to a room by cladding walls in Pend O’Reille’s leather. Designers often use cashmere for drapes and chenille upholstery for a handsome office space. Wool flannels and velvets are also used for upholstery. Most commercial real estate agents find new office buildings need to be staged just as new homes are often decorated to make it seem as though someone lives there. It’s always a wise idea to work with a licensed commercial real estate agent or Realtor who can show you different commercial properties in your area. They can save you time by searching MLS or the multiple listing service to find commercial properties in your desired price range.
Walls create more than cubicles
More commercial real estate properties are becoming as beautifully decorated as executive homes and estates. When it comes to the walls, more builders of office complexes are using limestone walls as well as paper-backed fabrics, string paper and grass cloth. In terms of flooring, the best way to create a professional atmosphere is to use polished floors contrasted with, perhaps, Tibetan-style hand-knotted rugs. Much of the architectural inspiration of commercial real estate properties come from Frank Lloyd Wright and Mies van der Rohe, who once said, “God is in the details.”
A space to work
The layout and architectural design of a commercial real estate property has to be able to accommodate the preferred office furniture, workstation systems and furnishings.
Before investing in a property or selling a property, it’s helpful to have the advice of an interior designer to make sure your goals can be met.
Finally, after you have purchased a commercial real estate property, a designer specializing in office space my help with the procurement of artwork as well as installation. They may help in furniture selection and placement.
