For most people office renovation work seems to be a dreadful chore and a financial burden. Unfortunately, the truth is that, if you want your business to grow, not only should you improve the quality of your products/services, but you should also remodel your office space once in a while. Since it’s an essential part of maintaining the growth of your company, try to enjoy it as much as possible. After all, the need for remodeling and improving your working environment means your company’s made enough progress to make the current layout, design and style obsolete. Luckily, even with a tight budget, if you plan and do it wisely and carefully, you’ll be able to create a whole new, better and prettier office space.

Reasons to Start a Remodeling Project 

Lousy Design – It’s really frustrating to work in an area that doesn’t take advantage of the available space. An office that wasn’t designed correctly, with lack of work and storage space is one of the top reasons for the owner to start a remodeling project. Without any additional square footage, an office

space can be designed to look bigger and more motivating. In addition, the productivity of the employees is limited in case the office space has a limited functionality.

Bad First Impression – When clients enter an office for the first time, they make the first impression of the company and the quality of the service/product offered. Outdated, cluttered and/or cramped office space could affect the bad perception of your company. Making your office space more attractive and client/customer friendly office is certainly a good investment, therefore opt for an Impressive Office Design.

Sometimes, it’s worth investing in remodeling an office to make it more energy efficient and eco-friendly. This is especially recommended for offices located in older buildings. Double-pane windows, new cooling/heating systems and energy star appliances can significantly reduce your monthly energy bills.

What Should You Change?

Since it’s suffering the most wear and tear, no matter how expensive and good tiling and/or carpeting you have, it disintegrates over certain period. In order to ensure a livelier, more aesthetically pleasing and fresher atmosphere, you should undoubtedly replace the tiles and carpets when you decide to begin with the renovation works. Even though it comes with a high price tag, remodeling your floor is surely worth it in the long run.

Walls – When it comes to walls, new stickers and/or a fresh spray of paint will liven up any workplace. In general, the surrounding walls do determine the ambiance of any space; offices are no exception to this rule. For your business to look modern and as a trend setter/follower, you need to change the colors of your walls and to adorn them with trendy art and decor. Depending on the nature of your business, you could paint different parts of the office (or different office in your company’s building) with different themes and in different colors. In any case, commercial office remodeling typically includes refurbishing of surrounding walls.

In case your remodeling budget allows you to replace or refurbish all the furniture with a whole new set, don’t hesitate to do it. Nevertheless, if you’re on a tight budget, you could make a noticeable impact by mending of the furniture and re-upholstering of the fabrics.

Layout – A good interior designer will provide you with suggestions and recommendations regarding your new office layout, if small or big changes are necessary. Rearranging office appliances and furniture is essential for creating a cozier, more productive and more effective working environment. For example, you could put partitions in place to separate areas for different purposes. Use unused spaces as storage or partition them off temporarily in case you need them in the future.

Toilets & Kitchen – Restroom renovations have many advantages, such as greater comfort, improved sanitation, easier access for everyone and, finally, lower operating costs. The same goes for the office kitchen. But, since most businesses don’t have enough money to remodel and refurbish restrooms and a kitchen every time they, for instance, paint the surrounding walls, it would be wise to pick one or two reasons why you should start an office kitchen/toilet renovation project. If, for example, you need better sanitation, opt for materials and layout that would be easier to wash and clean. On the other hand, Designer Office Kitchens will provide greater comfort and more enjoyable coffee-break time. You probably don’t have enough money to change everything, so make sure you know what’s more beneficial for your own business and employees.

 

Bonus Tip

Before starting any office remodeling project, make sure you’ve planned out all the details carefully and don’t forget to ask for your employees’ input. This can save you a lot of money and, in addition, you’ll send the message to your employees that you value their own opinion and ideas.
