The Office Makeover

Remodeling and updating your furnishings makes a fresh impact 

As the year is winding to a close, many clients realize that their office needs a makeover. Perhaps your workspace has been neglected in the flurry of work, or you have determined that it has simply not functioned as well as it could with a re-do. The question is where do you start?

1) Assess your space
 Take a look at your existing furniture with new eyes. How is it fairing? Is it tired? Sometimes simply updating seating and interior components like carpet and paint will do the trick.

While you are at it, check out your work surfaces. Are your desks still serviceable? Are they a current style? Are they an efficient use of space? If not, they may need replacement.

 Grab a note pad or your ipad and make an inventory of what items you may need in the order of importance and then…

2) Determine a budget
What you can spend to make the changes and improvements?

Doing some shopping at a Tulsa Oklahoma office furniture retailer like Crown Office Furniture first will help you to determine costs and get a better idea of what is being offered. There are constant innovations that can save the consumer time and money, so be open minded and see what is out there!

Next, set a budget, and determine which items are your priority. For a client like Red Crown in Mayes County, updating their interior spaces with new seating and occasional tables was the perfect solution to their needs without having to replace all of their existing traditionally styled desks. By adding a patterned fabric to some of the key pieces they purchased, they were able to achieve a pleasing overall design element without replacing everything.

3) Get Started!

Visiting with a furniture sales representative on the front end to help with overall color scheme, style and workspace requirements. They can assist you and help simplify the process.

If you are doing a complete interior remodel, it is also a good idea to enlist the aid of an interior designer. This partnership will also help to ensure that the overall look of your remodel will come together seamlessly. Zeeco in Broken Arrow utilized this option and pulled together a modern corporate aesthetic as shown here along with other examples.

Once you have assessed your needs, set a budget and done some shopping, you will be well equipped to make your mental revisions a reality.

So, what are you waiting for?
