How do you get a cool office?


When renovating an office there is really no need to spend a lot of money. It is important to think about a number of things. We have listed some tips with which you can not only refurbish your office, but also make your employees perform better. For example, it is good to add art to the interior or nature themes. Installation of plants and air fresheners will also contribute to a good interior climate.



General tips:

    1. Set clear goals: do you want your revamped office to work for your employees, or are you trying to make the space more comfortable for customers? These factors should be discussed in advance, so you can put together a realistic budget. Make sure that everyone involved in the Newcastle office refurbishment programme has the same objective.


    1. Think long-term. You have identified your current objectives for the renovation, but what’s your long-term plan? Are the current objectives drawn up for a period of 5 years or more? And is your company prepared for a possible growth after completion of the office refurbishment?


    1. Timing. You will of course ensure that the refurbishment works are not scheduled in the busiest period of the year…Therefore carefull planning makes sense.


    1. Identify desires versus needs. It is tempting to let yourself go completely during the design process. Like super-de-luxurious office chairs or an over-the-top flat screens. However, it is important to stay focused during the interior design process and only spend money on things you really need.

This includes plants, or offices located near a window, as well as large manifesstations on walls or filing cabinets like shown in the image above.
