Always wanted to upgrade your office, but you did not have the time, energy or money to do it? Well, now is the right time! As most employees are still working from home due to the worldwide pandemic, it is often very quiet at the office. This gives you the opportunity to finally upgrade your office. With these 4 tips, upgrading your office will be a piece of cake.
1. Change the Flooring
Now that the office is (almost) empty, it is the perfect time to take care of the floors. Putting in new flooring takes a while. But if there are few to no employees, it can be fixed way better and faster. No interest in a new floor? Then use the time to scrub and clean the present flooring.
2. Paint the Walls
Normally, employees would have to endure the smell of paint for days. But, as everyone is working from home, now is the perfect time to finally change that ugly colour on the wall. Play safe and go for a light, neutral colour. Preferably do not select dark colours or wallpaper that is a bit much. This makes the room look smaller and the latter can be distracting.
3. Use Fun Accessoires
Your employees will notice a big change if both the floors and walls are upgraded. It is, however, not always necessary to make big adjustments in order to create a fresh new look in your office. You can also create a new mood by simply changing the old accessoires into newer fancy ones. For example, you can buy large posters or fun paintings. Use some superglue (Dutch: secondelijm) and in no time your posters will (continue to) stick to the walls.
4. Go Green
Go green and give your office a nicer look with a helping hand from mother nature. Plants give you great pleasure! Apart from looking pretty in the office, plants have lots of other benefits. For example, plants release oxygen and help clean the air and therefor benefit the overall health of your employees.
Use the aforementioned tips to upgrade your office, before everyone goes back to the ordinary office-life. And make sure you have enough disinfectants (Dutch: ontsmettingsmiddelen), so that everyone is able to work safely.
