No matter how much you think you love your office, it can look tiring at one point. The walls have lost their fresh coat of paint, the tables have scratches, and the carpets look faded. Does this mean you need a big budget for an office redesign? Not really.
What you need is clever office revamp hacks, such as the following:
Get Second-Hand Cubicles
Employees need privacy to get their job done. If you’re coming from an open layout and want to offer a bit of privacy to certain members of the team who are more productive working in a quieter environment, used office cubicles are what you need. Don’t worry about the cubicles looking worn. They are refurbished to look brand new, but you are getting them for a more affordable price. Sounds like a good deal, right?
Rearrange the Room
Sometimes you don’t need to do anything to make the office look brand new. When people have gotten used to the layout to the point that they do not see it as exciting anymore, it’s time to shake things up. Rearrange teams or move one area of the room to another. As long as it does not affect their productivity and you are not making it hard for anyone to move around, the move can have a similar effect as moving to a new office.
Replace Carpets and Blinds
Small changes, such as refreshing carpets and replacing blinds, will improve the mood in the office. Faded carpets make the office look worn, while blinds can be the biggest hurdle to someone’s productivity, especially if they are seated next to the windows. They might be complaining about these things among their friend groups for a while, and seeing you address these problems will let them know you care.
Your office will get boring after some time. It’s up to you to keep things interesting.
