No one enjoys coming to work when the office decor is outdated and worn. Productivity and morale can suffer. But, you can create a healthy work environment and boost the morale of employees by redecorating and upscale office decor. A well-decorated office space can make coming to work far more pleasant. Additionally, if your business has clients who frequently come to the office, then an upscaled office decor can help you sell them on your pitch, increasing client acquisition, and certainly yielding a positive ROI on the cost it took to decorate. There are many ways to improve your office space. Whether you are on a limited budget and want to add simple elements that make the work environment more pleasant or if you have big renovation plans in mind and really want to take your business to the next level, there are various cost-effective ways to upscale office decor.
Explore the Space
A big mistake that many make when they begin to decorate their office space is jumping right into the project. Every office space is unique, and what works for one may not be the most ideal decor solution for another. Therefore, the first step to take in the decor process is to explore the office space. It is often hard to picture what new decor will look like, especially if it currently has a less than ideal design that sticks in your head. To make it easier, consider picturing the office space empty. Consider measuring how much space you have and make a list of different places in which you could locate individual offices and how you can arrange desks in your place of work for optimal productivity and happiness for employees. You can also make a list of issues you have with your office that you would like to fix, such as crowded desks, depressing wall color, or not enough natural lighting. You can then plan a course of action. Common decor fixes include changing the paint color, adding new paintings on the walls, rearranging the desks and offices, and upgrading outdated floors. An even more noticeable office decor upgrade is adding an architectural finish, that may include the use of simulated wood, granite, marble, stucco, and more.
Spruce Up with Plants
Plants are perhaps the easiest, least expensive, and best way to make an office feel less stuffy and more natural and upscale. There are many reasons to consider adding plants, not the least of which is that they look great. You can choose artificial plants, but natural plants are much more authentic. Additionally, natural plants can add a desirable fragrance to the office and may even improve air quality. A more overlooked benefit of natural plants is that they come with responsibility. While this may not seem like an advantage, starting the day by watering a plant is a simple and easy way to start the workday off feeling productive. Plants are something that everyone who works in the office will appreciate, and they make your work environment more interesting for prospective clients who visit your office.
Interesting Ways to Decorate Windows
Throughout the workday, we often glance at the windows and glass throughout our office spaces. While we most often do not consciously process and think about the color and design of the windows, boring windows can contribute to a fatigued feel at work. On the other hand, colorful decorated windows are unique and can make the entire office feel much more pleasant. Upscale commercial glass such as custom etched glass, vinyl graphics, custom printable films, electrical switchable films, and custom murals can transform the look of an office. Color decorated windows are a high-class and modern way to brighten up an office. Your employees and prospective clients who visit are certain to appreciate the effort and pride taken in having a quality workspace. As mentioned, this can increase productivity among employees and impress prospective clients and customers who visit your office.
