How To Spruce Up Your Commercial Space In 2019: 3 Key Steps!


This post is provided by Lora Young.

Better late than never! A new year has begun and businesses are eager to make very significant changes. Indeed, investing in office renovation is always a great idea. After all, a business has to change the way it looks in order to stay relevant to its existing and potential customers. But you will have to admit, sprucing up an office space, or just about any commercial setup for that matter, is too much of an investment already. 

If you are an entrepreneur, expect even a partial remodel to be very costly. And I mean COSTLY! After all, you will have to know which parts of your commercial space deserve a much needed upgrade. Other than that, you will need to know whether you have a large enough maintenance budget to handle such projects.

Luckily, there are ways you can spruce up your commercial space this year without having to spend too much time and energy. Here are a few of them:

Consider upgrading your storage

Right off the bat, the main problem that most businesses face is clutter. Especially for many startups that have yet to set up an effective storage system, it is hard to find hard copies of documents if they are not properly stored or at least archived.

If you have this very same problem as last year, you might as well consider investing in filing cabinets and other storage systems that will help keep your files safe and secured. If you do not have a proper storage room for these files, you might as well utilize an existing room or partition a part of your office space to create a separate area for storage.

Replace old furniture

If you are still using the same furniture ever since you started operating your business, chances are it is becoming dilapidated. It becomes worse if there is an indication of termite damage, in which case you will have to consider replacing your old office furniture with brand new pieces.

Make sure to opt for hardwood furniture, especially when it comes to refurbishing the lobby. But if you are on a budget, you can always consider giving your old furniture a new lease on life by way of  a simple restoration project. This will at least add a few more years to the life of your furniture.

Get an experienced construction contractor

Planning something big for your commercial space? Maybe you are considering adding a new office building on the premises? At any rate, you will need to find a contractor that is capable of handling projects no matter how large.

For simple office space additions, you can find small construction companies. Such companies usually make use of construction equipment financing to acquire the right assets. Still, it is always important to look at a contractor’s track record. Obviously, finding any anomalies in a company’s history should indicate a no-go. To be safe, you should ask for recommendations from business partners or colleagues to vouch for a trusted company.

With these three steps in mind, you will be on your way to a good year for your business, with a brand new look to match!
