The office makeover process can be a fun and rewarding experience. By following the tips and tricks highlighted in today's post, you'll be ready to tackle your project effectively. From proper space planning to finding active coupons, we've got you covered. Enjoy!
All professional office design and makeover projects start with effective space planning. Rest assured, there's nothing worse than purchasing all new custom office furniture only to find out that it doesn't fit properly. Ouch! Minimize the chance of error by obtaining accurate dimensions of your interiors. Double check your dimensions and then have a coworkers check them as well! Quite simply, you can never be too careful during this essential step. Be sure to take note of all entry ways, power outlets, load bearing members, and windows that will affect the way your furniture fits.
With accurate dimensions in hand you'll be eager to start the shopping process. That being said, we recommend pumping the breaks! Don't rush out and purchase new furniture for your interior without getting a little inspiration. Take to the web and search for the latest office design trends. Visit social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram to get cool ideas that will work for your office environments. Last but not least, visit a local showroom to pick up some literature. You'll also be able to see new office products in person. This will give you a great idea of what styles and finishes you prefer.
Okay, the time has come! You're ready to shop. Set a realistic budget for your makeover and visit a comparison shopping engine like Google Shopping to start your furniture search. Here you'll be able to sort products available with free shipping. You'll be able to quickly categorize items by brand and price to help expedite the browsing process.
Before making a purchase, take the time to call a few dealers directly. Sure you can spend time searching coupon sites, but it's hard to beat a quick phone call. You'll be able to ask about active coupons, current specials, trending collections, and bulk pricing if applicable. You'll also get a great idea on the type of customer service companies provide, BEFORE making purchase!
Once your new desks and workstations have been ordered, it's time to prep your space. Start by removing your old furniture and conducting a thorough cleaning. Patch any unsightly wall marks, vacuum the floors, dust, and paint before your new furniture arrives.
About 3 days after you place your order, call your dealer to obtain an estimated ship date and tracking information. With this helpful information you'll be able to have your space ready in time, and not too early! On the day your furniture is scheduled to arrive, create a staging area. Don't just bring all the new items into your space. This makes for an overly crowded assembly process.
If you're tackling installation and assembly, make sure to have at least two helpers on hand. A new office desk configuration or conference table will require some heavy lifting. Avoid straining the back by enlisting some reliable assistance.
After your new office furnishings have been assembled, there will be lot's of debris. Prepare in advance! Be ready to break down lot's of cardboard boxes to maximize dumpster space. Have trash bags on hand to collect packing materials like bubble wrap and popcorn.
Last but certainly not least, wipe down your new furniture and reintegrate your important documents in an organized fashion. Take a few pics of your new space and share your success story online. Over the next few weeks you'll be accenting your interior with cool wall art and accessories to make it pop! Don't rush this process as the interiors that are built organically over time typically come out the coolest.
