When you decide to tap in to the gig economy by establishing a coworking space, your first task is to create an effective and nurturing environment. The freelancers, budding entrepreneurs and independent contract workers who frequent your facility seek a place to focus on work that has the amenities of an office and the opportunity for social interaction. Let their goals be your guide as you choose the furnishings and decor for your new establishment. From quiet, private desk and work areas to large spaces for meetings and socializing, the furniture you install sets the tone for concentration, collaboration and continued success.

If your coworking business has an open floor plan, position the quiet work area at the back, far from the entryway and other areas where there is foot traffic and where people congregate. Furnishings don't have to be fancy, but should include:

Part of the appeal that will draw customers to rent coworking space from you is the opportunity to be around other people who are also making it on their own. Enhance that appeal by setting aside an area furnished with:
With a well-balanced collection of office furniture and comfortable seating, your new business as owner of a coworking space will answer the needs of workers in the trendy, new gig economy while making you an appreciated and successful business person in the community.Share
