Could your business’s interior design and décor use a complete refresh?
Perhaps you’re starting from scratch with a brand-new building. Maybe your existing interior décor is generic or dull. You may have even received negative customer feedback about your building’s layout or appearance.
In any case, a fresh take on your office space, restaurant, or store could have a transformative impact on your brand, productivity, and bottom line. If you’re ready to take the plunge and invest in designing and decorating services, here are four important steps to revitalize your commercial space!
1. Gather Opinions from Key Stakeholders
The pre-design stage of your project is the perfect time to speak to those within your organization and gather opinions on changes that might benefit your business. In many cases, employees have ideas that encourage productivity or boost morale. Not to mention, surveying them will make them feel invested in your project!
While you’re not obligated to commit to any of these changes just yet, logging them can prove helpful when it comes time to flesh out your interior design and décor.
2. Create Your Interior Design and Décor Budget
Even the largest businesses are often confined to budgets. This keeps their interior design projects on track and helps them prioritize the most important additions.
Of course, your budget should include a total amount that your company is willing or able to spend on the project. However, it is also helpful to list out all of the different line items you’re considering. Assign “need”, “want” and “extra” to all items for when you need to make tough decisions!
3. Start Researching Your Options
Next, it’s time to start getting inspired!
With ideas from fellow managers and employees, as well as a detailed budget in hand, start researching furniture, décor, and accessories you could integrate within your commercial space. For additional inspiration, you can also check our portfolio page.
Of course, the internet is an invaluable resource for discovering popular design concepts, layouts, furniture, and more. You can also stop by your local luxury furniture store to get an idea of what options might be immediately available to you.
4. Leverage the Experience of a Commercial Interior Designer
Let’s face it—designing and decorating a commercial space can be mammoth undertaking. If you’re a business owner, executive, or manager, it’s likely that you lack the time, energy, and skills needed to see this kind of project through to completion. Fortunately, there are interior designers and decorators who specialize in transforming commercial spaces—including offices, restaurants, storefronts, and more.
