Your office should be a place to showcase your style. Is your current office space outdated or costing you a fortune on your utility bill each month? It might be time for a renovation! You and your team deserve a newly renovated, modern, stylish office to work in, while you save money in the process. Here are some renovation tips to give your office space a total makeover without breaking the bank:
1. Get Input from Employees
It’s important to gather input from your employees. Since they are the ones who spend the most time inside, your employees know better than anyone what would make for a more efficient office space. They know the layout and flow of the space, along with what they would change if they could. Consider distributing an employee survey to dig deeper into the workspace experience. This should help reveal how employees currently use the space as well as their thoughts on how the office looks, feels and functions. If that wasn’t enough, having happier workers also leads to higher team efficiency. It’s a win on both ends!
2. Create a Timeline
When you set a specific time frame for your renovation project, you’re more likely to finish it on time. Renovations should not drag out longer than necessary, allowing you to get into your new space as soon as possible. To make this easier on yourself, hire a trustworthy contractor to help keep things on track and have the renovation completed in a timely manner.
3. Upgrade Your Current Lighting
Upgrading your lighting to LED lights can brighten up the office and save you money over time. Take advantage of energy-efficient and unique options such as lamps or hanging lights instead of traditional ceiling lights. When you hire a professional team of licensed contractors and electricians like Pinnacle Contractors to help you renovate your space, we can provide you with energy-saving technology to help you save money on your electric bill each month!
4. Know the Right Types of Materials to Use
Knowing what types of materials to use during a renovation can be stressful. First and foremost, you’ll need to figure out what materials you need and where to get them. Where are the highest-quality materials at the best prices? Does the color match the rest of the space? Is it durable?
Then, you’ll need to make sure that you don’t make the common mistake of purchasing more than you need. Because figuring out the best materials and how much you’ll need will take some research and time, it may be easier to hire someone who knows what they are doing so you can take any guesswork out! Leave the hard decisions to someone else so you can get back to what you do best.
5. Find a General Contractor You Trust
Renovating your space can be a stressful, time-consuming task—if you allow it to be. By finding a reliable contractor, you will save yourself time and many headaches over the course of the project. Contractors can provide you with their professional advice for your renovation and make sure you are back into your new space by the deadline you’ve set.
Preparing for a big renovation is not always easy, but having a detailed plan in place beforehand makes the process smoother, helps keep your budget in check, and creates an office space that you and your employees will love working in!
