Plug and Play Offices or Bare-Shell – Which One Should You Choose?

Blog Banner (5)

When looking for office space in Hyderabad or any other city, you will find a wide variety of options, ranging from plug-and-play to bare shell, furnished or unfurnished, etc. However, deciding which office space is most suitable for you can prove challenging at times. In this blog, we’ll take a look at two types of office space- the plug-and-play offices and the bare-shell office. 

What is a Plug-and-Play Office?

Plug-and-play offices are furnished office spaces that have been gaining popularity in recent years due to how easy it is to simply “plug in” your work system and begin working.

Benefits of Plug-and-Play Offices

Low CapEx cost

A plug-and-play office is way more affordable than a traditional bare-bones office. It has lower CapEx costs and no overhead. Other than rent, you do not have to pay any extra additional expenses.


You can request your landlord to create a customized office space with cabins, seats, dedicated desks, and even a private office when you rent a plug-and-play office.

Lease Duration

One of the key aspects of plug-and-play offices that attract people is their flexibility in lease duration. Plug-and-play offices do not bind you to the space indefinitely, unlike traditional office spaces. There is no long-term commitment.

What is a Bare-Shell Office?

By contrast, bare-shell offices are the opposite of plug-and-play offices. The office space, except for the structure, is completely unfurnished. The space is devoid of any furnishings and finishes.

Benefits of Bare-Shell Office

Less rent

In comparison to a plug-and-play office, a bare-shell office is less expensive to rent. Due to the lack of furnishings, the monthly cost is lower. Majority of the costs will go toward renovating and upgrading the place.

High Capital or CapEx cost

Since the furnishing and finishes must be handled by the organization or person renting the space, bare-shell offices require a higher CapEx or capital expenditure. The high CapEx costs can be detrimental if the stay is short, as it will take a lot of capital to transform the space into an office.

Ideal for a Long-term Stay

It is preferable to have a bare-shell office for long-term stays since it requires a lot of capital to make it functional. It is also difficult to leave a bare-shell office once you are committed to it and most bare-shell offices require you to stay committed for at least 5 years.
