Are you planning to do an office makeover soon? You might be afraid that you’re going
to spend thousands of dollars for that to happen, but the reality of it is that it doesn’t
have to be expensive. You just have to know exactly what things you need to buy in
order for you to beautify your workplace.
In today’s article, I will share some easy tips to follow for an office makeover on a budget.
Explore Different Materials
When you hear the words “office makeover”, you might be thinking about getting those
over-priced construction materials and furniture. But, thankfully, there are some things
that would give the impression that something is more expensive than it actually is.
A laminate was once a staple in the 80s and it is now making its comeback because the
material can actually give the impression of making it look like real stone or wood patterns.
You may have to confer with an interior designer about this, but there are some
materials that you can use that are more inexpensive than what you’ve thought about before.
Don’t Be Afraid to Mix-and-Match
Most of the time, companies would often just look at one office supplier and be done
with it. This is not only a lazy approach but this is something that could break your
finances quickly and easily.
I know that this will be a ton of work, but actually getting furniture from different
manufacturers is the key to keep the costs down. Do not be afraid to mix and match
furniture; so long as it fits the theme of your office décor, it shouldn’t really be a problem.
Give Priority to Certain Places
There are certain places in the office where high-end furniture will not give the best
effect in terms of aesthetics and overall functionality. For instance, putting an expensive
chair in the backroom will not really bode well, right?
Give more priority to places where people can see. If you are expecting new clients to
come into your office, then you may want to flaunt some of your high-end furniture in
places where they can easily be seen.
Give Some Time to Look for the Right Furniture
As mentioned earlier, an office makeover need not be too expensive. But, for things to
work nicely, you may have to spend some time to look for the right furniture.
If, say, you are tasked to get some office chairs, you may have to look at different
manufacturers to find the right chairs at the right price.
A little bit of effort goes a long way.
Add Certain Accessories to Test Out Space
If your company only has a certain budget for office furniture, it is important to test out
the office space first to find out what furniture is required.
There are some manufacturers who are willing to work with companies to help them find
out which furniture they need and which are the things that they don’t.
