It is very important that you redecorate your office space to lighten up the energy in your office. Even the small changes in you make in your office can make the brightest effects. But there are a few factors you may want to keep in mind when renovating your office space. Make sure your redecoration makes a positive stance in the office and not a negative one.
As with everything in an office, you must budget it! Draw up a budget before starting your renovation activities. That way you will know on what to be spending on, and what to avoid spending on. It is important to draw up a budget that will suit your available funds. If you’re looking at major renovations then it is better if you get professionals to do the budgeting and interior decorators to do the job. However, if that is not the case then even a small time accountant can draw up a budget and you and your staff can collaborate on how to give your office a cheap makeover.
Sometimes, the smallest of changes can make the greatest of impacts. For instance, get natural plant atop every desk in office. It will freshen the air and lighten the humidity. Thus creating an airy and joyful environment for your staff to work in. You can also install panel blinds to the windows, keeping the windows open during the work time without always using the A/C. nothing beats fresh air. You’d be surprised on how many staff will agree with you on this. It will not only cut your electricity costs but it will create a happy environment to work in.
Have a theme
As with any redecoration, home or office, it is important to adhere to a specific theme. Make sure you have a theme to redecorate to. If you’re planning on changing the entire theme then don’t try to cut costs and have a part of the office in the previous theme. Make sure to make all the necessary changes. From the paint to the carpets to the furniture. Everything! Even your roller blinds should match the theme in your office!
How willing is your office staff?
One of the major factor to be considered when carrying out renovations is how willing your staff is to change. If the staff find redecorating the office, troublesome and irritating you may find them being less compliant and helpful. Some may even find it difficult to concentrate on their job thereby reducing the business activity. It is important that all staff are happy with the redecoration process and will carry out the business activities unhindered. Make sure to have a chat with your staff before carrying out any redecoration. When people are unaware, that too makes them become afraid of the changes taking place. So make sure to inform all staff top to bottom of the redecoration. And welcome their suggestions and ideas with an open mind!
