Commercial Office Space Updates Make a Huge Difference

2020 has been a very interesting year for all of us filled with surprises – both good and bad. The corporate workforce has taken a turn away from requiring employees to be at the office everyday and has embraced a “Remote Workforce Strategy.” During this time, with many employees being encouraged to work from home, I have been involved with more commercial decor upgrades.

Here is a photo of a local office space before much work was completed:

Office Space Before Paint and Furniture

The walls were painted a light bluish, gray paint color (Benjamin Moore – my favorite brand), the carpet was replaced with carpet squares (held down by special tape), the window frames were painted a darker gray color along with the forced heat vents, and the cove-base was added in a black color. I had to re-use the desk, file cabinet, and bookcases that were available at the facility.

I decided to utilize Feng Shui and face the desk chair pointing towards the door, a mirror was added between the two windows to reflect away any negative energy, and small desk fans were added to keep the air circulating (to prevent any stagnant energy). The following items were purchased and brought in for the project:

  • Three Desktop Lamps with Soft Yellow Light Bulbs
  • Two Silk Floral Arrangements for the Windows Sills – and to create Symmetry
  • Two Orange Chairs to be placed around a circular table
  • Two Himalayan Salt Lamps to purify the air
  • Two Floor Standing Lamps
  • Couch with Two Accent Pillows
  • The Bookcase was organized to keep the office looking and feeling good
Office After Paint, Carpeting, and New Furniture

This photo was taken from the office door, looking in. For under $1,000 this entire office space was transformed!!! Could you image what we could do for your home office to make it more functional and conducive for working.

So, let me know what you think – anything you think should be added or is missing.

Thanks, Kate
