Keeping your entire office structurally sound and aesthetically pleasing is a must if you want to provide a positive work environment for your employees and visitors. Whether you want to implement modern designs to outdated spaces or create more space in an office that’s starting to feel small, there are plenty of options for your remodel. Here are some ways to tell if your office needs remodeling, and some design tips for transforming your professional space!
Telltale Sign #1: There is visible wear and tear.
Carpeting and floors probably get the most use out of any surface in your office, and heavy foot traffic or years of prolonged use can leave them looking warn and tarnished, even with regular cleaning. Spills in offices happen as well, and can leave permanent damage to floors even if they aren’t visible to the naked eye. Consider tearing up old carpet and either replacing it with new carpet or using a new type of flooring that is more visually pleasing and easier to maintain. Drab walls that have dents, scratches or stains can also be very unsightly. Remodeling with smooth finishes and brighter colors can do a lot for your work environment and make the space look fresh and new.
Telltale Sign #2: You’re running low on space.
Whether you’ve recently hired new employees or have found that your storage space has become overcrowded into your main office area, chances are you’re in need of a remodel. If buying additional office space isn’t an option, there are plenty of ways you can create more space on your own, or with the help of a commercial remodeling company. Commercial design professionals are available to you and can offer efficient and creative solutions in creating space in your office, no matter the size. They easily recognize the importance of making sure employees don’t feel cramped and can assist with layout changes and physical remodels to ensure comfortability in your office space.
Telltale Sign #3: Fixtures, furnishings, and technologies are outdated.
Lighting and furniture that is visibly old and dated are also good signs that your office space needs an interior remodel. If natural light is available in your office, it should be optimized. The lighting in your space should be bright but not so much that it causes strain on the eyes. Recessed lighting is best, since it doesn’t take up floor space and is simple to have installed in your office overhead. Old furniture that is falling apart or just visibly outdated is best replaced with brand new, modern furnishings that blend with the overall design and feel of your office space.
