Five essentials for your business premises

Your premises is like your baby. If your house is where your family can feel comforted and safe, then your business premises is where your business can be nurtured and encouraged to grow.

And when you look at it like that, it’s important that you’re able to get your premises set up right. Whether you’re just opening your own office or you feel as if things you currently have just aren’t right, then you may want to shake things up a little with some key essentials. But it’s not always easy to know what you should be focusing on. Because there’s a lot you need to put in place and it can get quite overwhelming. So let’s walk through the five essentials you need for your premises.

Kitchen space

When you’re looking at potential places, it’s highly likely that you’re going to be on the lookout for employee workspaces and your office. And it’s only natural, as these are the two most important areas for any business to have. But they’re not the only ones. Because you also have to ensure that you have the right communal spaces too. The first, and the most vital, is your kitchen area. Because you and your staff will need to ensure that you’re refreshed – and that you have somewhere to eat too. Not everyone will want to eat at their desks!


Next on the list, you need to be sure that you have the right security measures in place. Not only does this mean that you have the right door security and locks such as those from, but you may also want to consider CCTV too. This will often give you peace of mind, knowing that your premises is secure, even when you’re not at work.

Meeting equipment

We’ve already covered off one of the communal spaces that you may not have thought of, but the changes are that you will have thought of ensuring you have enough space for meeting rooms. However, you may not know what kind of equipment to get. For this, you’re going to want a board table and chairs, a conference ready telephone system, and probably a smart TV or board too – all can be essential when conducting meetings.

Office supplies

You’re probably aware that you need office supplies, but are you sure that you’ve really covered off the essentials?

But also, you’re going to want refreshments like coffee and juice too.


Last but not least, you should definitely be thinking about parking options. And you may think that your staff can park in the local area, but this isn’t just about them. Okay, so it would be more convenient if you could all park close, but you need to be thinking about your visitors – especially clients. You want to ensure that they can park comfortably and feel welcomed when they visit.
