Top Tips for a Stress-Free Office Renovation

Undertaking an office renovation can be a time-consuming and stressful task, but it doesn’t have to be! With careful planning and forward-thinking, you can carry out an office renovation that suits you, your employees and your clients perfectly.

Here are our top tips for doing so:

Set a realistic budget

Whether you are simply redecorating your reception area or you are renovating the entire office, setting and sticking to a budget is one of the most effective ways to minimise your stress levels. Make sure you keep track of your spending as you go to ensure you don’t spend more than you can realistically afford.

When setting a budget, don’t forget to take into account more than just the renovation costs. You will also need to think about the cost of storage containers, potential damages and any office downtime which may affect your profit.

Let your employees know in advance

Your employees are the lifeblood of your business and should be kept updated with any big company changes, such as an office renovation. If the work is going to be particularly disruptive, they may even have to work from home during the renovation, so you should give them plenty of advance warning to allow them to make preparations.

Declutter your office

To make the process of renovating your office less stressful, it’s a good idea to remove any furnishings, documents or employee belongings that are taking up valuable space. These will only get in the way during your renovation, so consider disposing of anything that your shiny new office won’t benefit from.

Put all furnishings and electrical equipment in storage

During the renovation, it’s likely that dust and paint will cloud your office space and everything within it. To keep your furnishings and electrical equipment in good condition during the makeover, it’s a good idea to put it all in storage. Hiring a steel storage container is an effective way to keep your office equipment secure until your office is ready again, and also means you can keep your office floor clear for the renovators to get to work.

If you’re searching for secure storage containers you can rely on to keep your personal or commercial belongings safe, then you needn’t look further than Manchester Cabins.
