How to Upgrade Without Renovating

Making the right impression on customers is incredibly important when you are running a business. However, many companies don’t have the cash flow to do extensive renovations to their office or showcase space. The good news is that there are ways to update without spending the big bucks. Below are some upgrades your company can make without undergoing a huge overhaul.

  • Concrete Resurfacing – This is a great option for offices or workspaces that have cracks, holes, and fissures in the flooring. Many people think that the flooring needs to be ripped up and replaced, but this is an expensive and daunting undertaking. This method uses a polymer concrete material that is applied to the entire floor surface. If you want to upgrade your floor, you can even add a textured surface that creates the effect of stone or tile when the resurfacing is done.
  • Used Office Furniture – Is your office space filled with broken desks, chairs, and partitions? Buying new furniture for your entire office can be very expensive, especially if you’re looking for quality products that will stand the test of time. Check out one of the many used office furniture websites or retail stores for solid, dependable pieces at affordable prices. Many of the items at these outlets come from businesses that have either closed down or relocated, meaning that there was nothing wrong with the furniture -- it just needed a new home. Having new (to you) furniture in your place of business is a great way to give the space a new look without spending a ton of money.
  • Signage – Simply upgrading your signage is a great way to give your business a face lift. Many people overlook the importance of bright and large signage. What they are forgetting is that eye-catching signs are things that people often can't help but pay attention to, which will make them more likely to remember you. Replace a faded, worn sign with something larger and brighter.

You don't have to gut your entire office or workspace to bring new life into it. Doing simple upgrades is a great way to make your office look fresher and brighter. Concrete resurfacing products are a cost effective way to clean up embarrassing cracked flooring. Purchasing lightly used office furniture and new signage are other ways to improve the look of your space. Before doing any upgrades, though, it’s important to set a budget that your company can afford. Next, come up with a game plan and make sure that you stick to the budget you created
