Replacing office décor can be expensive. And most office furniture and décor can last for years. However, there are times when you might want to replace office furniture and flooring before the end of its natural life. The good reasons to update office décor could well include:
1. Wear and tear
One obvious reason is safety, this should always be at the forefront of decisions. A dangerous floor or damage to furniture could result in an accident that makes your company liable for compensation.
2. New branding
Office décor can be matched to the colour scheme of your brand. This can be a great way to align ethics within a business and ensure that everyone knows the core values of the brand.
3. To improve productivity
Sometimes it can be tempting to leave old décor in your current building because of the costs associated with installing new flooring and painting a room. Not to mention it can take up days of lost productivity.
However, the benefits might be worthwhile. Several studies have shown that using the right carpet in your office can reduce fatigue (by up to 24%) and muscle tiredness, as well as improve concentration and creativity. Replacing core furniture has similar benefits.
Certain colours within an office can also have an impact on employee performance. The right colour for productivity will depend heavily on the industry you’re in and what you want from employees. There are also many ways flooring can increase productivity.
4. To improve the opinions of guests
You only get one chance to make a good impression. If you have old decor that has been poorly maintained, it will reflect badly on you when guests visit. At the same time, by replacing furniture in an office, you can find that morale within the office will improve. Better morale can lead to increased productivity and less staff turnover which yields greater profits in the long-term.
