Perhaps you have just bought your very first office space and you’re looking to give it a refresh? Or maybe your current space is rundown and in need of a change?
Your office should be your home away from home; a place which inspires productivity and encourages new business opportunities. It’s also part of the public face for your company – whether you like it or not.
As a result, those with the most productive employees and best corporate image have the perfect balance of home comforts and professional business style. Think about the Google HQs; they are a perfect example of a fun, inviting yet corporate and serious office space.
At Markwell Peck, we are commercial decorators specialising in shot blasting Essex for government, industrial and educational facilities. With over 15 years of experience in the industry, our team have transformed all kinds of spaces and want to share our knowledge with you.
Here are a few ways you can transform your office space:
1. Make First Impressions Count – It’s easy to forget what your office looks like to visitors, so it’s time to put yourself in the shoes of your guests. What does your current office say about you and your company? Is it organised and efficient? Does it reflect a healthy and active business? Is your office a practical workspace as well as welcoming for employees and guests? If you spend just a few minutes taking a look at your office, you will know exactly what you need to do when it comes to decorating.
2. Adding A Splash Of Colour – Looking to brighten up your space? Well, giving it a lick of paint can help improve the whole look and feel of your office without spending loads on a complete refurb. For corporate companies such as banking or legal services, neutral colours such as beige, whites and greys will be a good fit. However, if you’re in a more creative background, warm and vibrant colours can really make a statement. At Markwell Peck, we recommend using a sandblasting service to prepare the surface of your walls. Our sandblasting services will give your wall a clean and flat finish before you add a layer of paint.
3. Get Rid of Office Clutter – Over time, businesses will acquire huge piles of paperwork, file boxes and other office debris. You tell yourself you’re going to organise it one day, but when did you last go through your filing cabinet. If you decide to decorate your office space, take a few minutes to chuck office clutter. In this process you may find you feel more organised and productive.
