When you start a business, you want everything to be perfect. The branding, the services and, of course, the people you employ. But what about the office? Small businesses don’t have to compromise on the modern office environment they’ve dreamt about. Read on to see whether shared office space could work for you.

Sharing is caring

Shared office space isn’t as daunting as it sounds. It’s simply sharing facilities with one or more other professionals or businesses. There are two ways of doing so. Firstly, co-working is sharing an office space with other people, usually individuals working alone.

There’s also shared office buildings, which see facilities like meeting rooms, toilets and kitchens shared by a number of teams or businesses, each with their own office or offices. Both usually include internet access, making it easier to hit the ground running when you start working at your shared office. But what are the other advantages?

Money, money, money

Number one on the list has to be affordability. Shared office spaces offer great value for money, splitting the cost of a full unit between several people and teams. With a range of office sizes available, you can also ensure you only pay for what you need.

Room to grow

Searching for your own unit, you would probably have to settle for something too big, and hope that you grow into it in the future. With shared office spaces, however, there is always room to expand. You’re free to add new members to your team without the need to move buildings.

Free and flexible

As well as flexibility in growth, shared offices boast great freedom more broadly. Unlike dedicated units, shared offices tend to have shorter leases, meaning it’s much easier to relocate or – if things don’t go as planned – cancel your office space rental. This, in particular, is perfect for small businesses and start-ups, who have no idea how things could pan out in the ever-changing business-world.


Another plus point for shared office space is the ability to mix with other businesses. Depending on the nature of your work, this can be great for helping your company grow. Whether you’re a team of web designers, accountants or business consultants, it opens doors for you to meet new clients, start new collaborations or even just broaden your knowledge of different industries
