What Do You Want To Achieve?
Before beginning to design and execute any office architectural changes, it is important that you think about why you want to make these changes and will any designs help your business to improve. Here are some examples of things to consider:
- Employee Wellbeing – Factoring in things such as natural lighting and access to fresh air can have a big impact on your employee’s wellbeing. It, therefore, can have a big impact on the productivity within your business.
- Colours – Are the existing colours of your office causing a depressing ambiance? This can be easily fixed with a spray of bright paint.
- Business Aesthetic – To keep your business up to date and looking inviting and current, you need to keep up with the trends as well as making sure that your office looks professional and inviting. This will not only help with your business, but it can also help encourage people to take up a position in your business.
By considering these elements of your business, you can make use of the right materials, colours and design to improve your office space.
Add A Little Cladding
There are a variety of different cladding materials that you can choose from when designing your office. From metal to stone and wood, there is a material to suit everyone’s design ideas. You can create your cladding design with any of the following materials:
Regardless of your budget, there will always be a material that you can use for creating your cladding design as some materials are cheaper than others but still have the same effect. If you are looking for a sophisticated look, the stone is an option to consider; whereas, if you would like a rustic appearance than you should opt for timber. The good thing about cladding is that you can create an array of different designs with the panels by placing them in different directions or using different sizes. For more ideas on how to use the materials listed above on the external walls of your office, take a look at Homebuilding & Renovating’s blog post.
Cladding On A Budget
Although cladding is a creative way to improve your office architecture, it can also be a very costly way to design your building. A cheaper solution may be to repair your existing cladding. This can be done by having professionals help you avoid expensive cladding replacements by providing you with your cladding repairs. Another method to achieve cladding repairs is by having your existing cladding sprayed to a colour that suits your business aesthetic as well as improving your overall office look.
As we have provided professional onsite spraying for many years, we know that adding a simple layer of paint can instantly improve the quality of your building. If you already have cladding fitted to your office, then you don’t necessarily need to replace the cladding, as this will not be economical. By spraying your office, whether it is inside or outside, you can completely transform the appearance. This is helpful when changing your business colours or changing the appearance of your office as trends and interests change.
Change The Windows And Doors
Updating your office windows and doors can also have a big impact on the way that your office looks. If you have a big budget to spend then changing your windows to double-glazed and the frames to a durable material that is a neutral or timeless colour such as black, grey or white, can instantly make your office look modern and chic. Improving your windows will not only affect the overall look of your office, but it will also help with insulation, making it more comfortable for employees as the winter sets in.
Unfortunately, not everyone has the budget to have new windows fitted, but this does not mean that you cannot improve the agricultural design of your office by updating the look of your windows. Window frame spraying allows you to update and modernise your office without having to dig deep into your pocket. The great thing about window frame spraying is that you can change the colour of your windows whenever you wish, allowing you to choose extravagant colours as you can always tone it down in the future. This is also a perfect alternative for new businesses moving into a new office that wants to change the windows but doesn’t quite have the budget to afford it.
Paint The Walls
One of the quickest and cheapest ways to completely change the look of your office is to give it a coat of paint. Whether your office looks boring and needs a splash of colour or you wish to change the ambience to more relaxed and contemporary, then paint can transform your office space.
Choose your colour pallet wisely as you don’t want to have to go back and paint over your walls because the colour looks outdated in a few months time. You also want to try and avoid dark colours as this can make the room feel small and depressing. Try using light and vibrant colours so that the room feels welcoming. You may not realise it, but the colour of your walls can have a big impact on your staff as it can either create a positive or dark and discouraging feeling. To work out what colour is best for your business and some design ideas for changing the colour of your wall, take a look at Elle Decor’s blog on office paint colours.
The colour of your walls will also have a big impact on the way that people view your business. If you have a client coming into your office and the walls look dark and dirty, the likelihood is that it is going to make them think negatively of your business. Your walls can easily be painted over and regularly changed depending on your changing aesthetics, trends, or simply to give a fresh coat.
To make the process quick and easy for you, why not hire a professional to spray paint the whole of your office? Using Just Sprays inside spraying service, you can choose from a variety of different coatings which can cover your walls. You will also experience little to no disruption as our team carries out your project. Just Spray also offers a warranty, so you don’t have to worry about repainting your walls all of the time.
Transform The Entrance
One part of your office that gets neglected when rejuvenating its appearance are any garden or grass areas around the office. Having a space where your employees can take a breath of fresh air can have a big impact on their wellbeing. Therefore, making sure that you have an area where your employees can enjoy the fresh air in a beautiful environment can improve your business. Small additions such as adding a bench next to some trees and flowers are all it takes to transform your office into an employee-friendly zone.
The front of your office is where your clients make their first impressions. For this reason, it is extremely important that you take care of this space and make sure that it looks inviting. This can be done by adding colourful flowers as well as a stone path taking you to the entrance to your office.
Although changing the entrance of your office may not seem like architectural design, it can have an impact on the overall look and feeling of your office. Because of this, it is important that when you are considering changing your office that you incorporate the greenery and office entrance into your design.
Start Designing Your Office
