5 Office Space Planning Tools for Businesses

An important step to laying out an office space is to visualize what it will look like and where things will be placed. Here are 5 office space planning tools that will help you achieve success in visualizing and planning your office space:

1. SmartDraw

This visual communication tool allows users to recreate their office space and then fill it in with furniture. Simply add the walls with line tools and then select furniture to snap into place, lining up perfectly with the boundaries like you’d want it in your real space. You can easily add shapes and text with this intuitive drawing tool.

3. Gliffy

To create a floorplan on Gliffy, you’ll use lines to imitate your office space. Then, add more basic shapes to represent your new furniture. Drag each item to a new position to see what it would look like from a bird’s eye view. This tool also offers collaboration, so multiple members of your staff can try their hands at rearranging the space.

4. FloorPlanner.com

FloorPlanner provides a more 3-D experience than most online design tools. You can use the site’s extensive library of objects to map out every detail of your office, even the landscaping outside. It’s easy to use and will help you make sure your office floor plan promotes an easy flow from one area to another and that all your furniture fits properly.

5. EdrawSoft

The Floor Plan Maker from EdrawSoft has a drag-and-drop menu on the left side for quick rearrangement and navigation between furniture items. Begin using this tool by “building” walls, noting doors and windows. Then you can even add in floor coverings and accents like plants alongside your new furniture arrangement.
