Often offices can quickly become outdated, which doesn’t give the right impression to clients or visitors. A great way to breathe new life into your office, is to give it a makeover. By implementing a few small changes, you can have your workplace looking like a brand new office.
Shred the clutter
An effective way to invigorate your office, is to get rid of the clutter which clogs up work spaces. Invest in a good quality shredder, which will enable you and your employees to clear workstations of unwanted paperwork and stay organised. This will not only improve the way it looks, but improve productivity and efficiency.
Give the walls a lick of paint
Freshening up the office doesn’t need to be a big job. One simple way to give your workplace new life, is to give the walls a lick of paint. Using colour in your business is a great way to stimulate productivity. A recent study from the University of Texas, found that bland beige and white offices induced feelings of sadness, and depression especially in women. Similar scientific studies have shown, that colours don’t just change our moods, they also impact our productivity. Which is why it’s best to decorate your workplace with a mix of hues that increase output and spark creativity. You could try incorporating your business colours into the mix.
Replace old furniture
First impressions count! Your reception area is one of those impressions you need to get right. Every visitor, client, and potential employee who walks through your door, receives their first impression about your company immediately from the layout, texture, and flow of your reception area. A stylish reception goes a long way to instilling confidence. If your reception area is looking sad and run down, it’s the perfect time for a refresh. Revamp the area with new modern office equipment and furniture. This will give a fresh new look to the area, and make visitors feel welcome.
Reorganise to organise
Organisation is key to making your office look new. Introduce cupboards for places such as the stationery and printing areas. Keep desks looking neat and tidy; invest in letter trays and desk tidies. Try implementing new systems for the storage of files. Are hard copies vital for your business, can files be stored digitally? This is a great way to reduce the amount of storage needed.
Freshening up your office can go a long way to not only improving the space, the overall look, and the appeal it has, but it can also ensure you and your employees feel happier in the working environment.
