Now is the ideal time to assess your current office space and make a list of useful upgrades. Determining where you could utilize excess storage, more natural light, greater privacy and a welcoming space for greeting clients are part of the considerations for planning a successful office renovation. Start To Finish Construction in Kelowna can help you customize your residential or commercial office space to maximize comfort and function.
How much natural light do you and your crew receive every workday? Do you feel like you are working from a dungeon? Would a patio door or French Door entry enhance your outside office space while allowing more light? Your team may feel happier and healthier if you let more of the outdoors in and expand your window situation.
Are you craving a warm, salt-lamp glow in your yoga studio or prefer some high-end, energy efficient track lighting to highlight specific desks and work stations? Are your traditional fluorescent lights causing grief among co-workers and guests alike? Addressing your energy consumption and lighting choices can increase productivity. Simply experimenting with different LED colours can dramatically influence your workspace and how your eyes feel at the end of the day. Strategically placed lamps, wall sconces, sky lights and recessed lighting can completely change your view.
Is your guest entryway a bright and welcoming space? Does it make you want to sit and stay awhile? Perhaps you are currently shuffling guests to the nether reaches of your back warehouse after parading them through your showroom. Every office ideally should offer some comfy additional seating to encourage clients to sit and discuss business. If your place of business has plenty of foot traffic, walk-ins or regular appointments, ensure you have adequate easy–to-clean seating and tables for your clients.
Your employees will appreciate having a private place to unwind and relax. No one functions at their optimum capacity when they are hungry or dehydrated. Create a harmonious atmosphere that beckons a cup of tea or glass of fresh, flavoured water to quench everyone’s thirst and get back on track. Taking regular breaks contributes to everyone’s success. Start To Finish Construction can help you make the most of your staff space.
Address Storage & Increase Efficiency
Start To Finish Construction understands how vital organization contributes to the overall harmony of a space. It is imperative that you have adequate storage to keep the unsightly necessities out of the way. No one needs to stare at your employees’ personal items, lunches and outerwear. Customizable closet solutions can be included in your design process. Having a kitchenette provides your staff with a space to prepare meals; while having refreshments on hand for clients and staff to enjoy. Would a cappuccino machine be a hit with your staff?
Having a clean, sterile public and personal bathroom is important. Avoid the spread of germs with a properly coordinated bathroom layout. Our experienced design team can recommend some great touchless features that are both stylish and practical. Bathroom storage is commonly missing from commercial office spaces. Have extra paper products, towels, soap and cleaners standing by, out of sight and out of mind.
Inspect The Places That Make Your Skin Crawl
We highly recommend walking through your current office space and taking some notes. Which dark corners are driving you to distraction? Do you have a junk drawer in every desk that is consuming perfectly good, creative energy? Are your window treatments blocking potentially harmful UV rays? Do you need more workstations for your increasing staff? The more details you provide, the best we can address your concerns. It can be helpful to initiate some conversations with your staff about changes that would make their day better too. Our team looks forward to hearing about your renovation plans soon!
