Office Remodeling: When Is It Time to Give Your Business a New Look?

I know first hand how much the look of a business impacts its ability to generate revenue. It's important, no matter what industry you're in, to have an office environment that is clean, laid out well and presents itself in the way you would expect from an employee. This look will need to last for years to come, so instead of catering only to modern design trends, your business's appearance should be classic and something that looks great no matter what year it is.

However, as times, trends and needs change, so too must the look of an office. It can be difficult to determine when this is necessary, and there are several key indicators that should wake up business owners and tell them, "It's time for a new look." What are some of these indicators?

  • Increase in sales/business
    I don't know a business owner who doesn't want to see their operation increase by some amount. And an important way of showing growth is with the look of the operation's base. Have you outgrown your space and need to add some room? Or are you moving into a bigger workspace, but need to give the new area a facelift? These are the times when a remodel most often happens, whether the growth is in business, staff or both.
  • Increased energy costs
    Have you been watching your energy costs increase dramatically over a certain period? If so, you may want to think about having your office remodeled in order to make the space more energy efficient. How? Energy efficient windows, insulation, heating and cooling and much more "green remodeling" can be done to a work area so you can save the money, or invest these funds into increasing your business.
  • Outdated look
    What worked 10 or 20 years ago might not be as great now. If you think the look of your business – outside or inside – is outdated and desperately in need of a new look, it's best to trust your gut instinct. Get in touch with a company that specializes in commercial remodeling services and ask them their thoughts, and what they would recommend be done to bring the look of your business into the present. 
The best sign your office could use a remodel? What others think. Are you hearing a lot of negative comments about the look of your office? If so, strongly consider remodeling your business and giving it an all new appearance. It might be one of the best decisions you make.
