You Have to Speculate to Accumulate: How an Office Refit Can Save You Money

Have you been putting off having an office refurbishment because you don’t like the idea of handing over the cash. Think it’s money better spent elsewhere? Well, we think you’re missing a trick. Spending money could actually make you money. Don’t believe us? Then read on. 

Lower Maintenance Costs

Have you recently forked out a small fortune to fix the ladies’ toilets again? Or maybe the power keeps blowing? Then it may be time for an office refit.

Although an office refurbishment will cost you now, in the long run it could save you a lot of money that would have otherwise been spent on repairing old items. An investment now will mean you can put the super glue and duct tape back in the cupboard for good, as there’ll be no need for makeshift fixes any time soon.

Ensure Your Staff and Company’s Safety

Let’s face it, things aren’t meant to last forever (although quality furniture from Office Image will last longer than most). The older furniture and fittings get, the more care and repair they will need. Old frayed carpet, exposed wiring and puddles of leaked water could all be causes of easily-avoidable accidents.

Keep your staff safe and out of harm’s way by repairing or replacing any broken fittings or furniture. Plus this will save your company from an expensive health and safety compensation claim.

Boost Productivity and Cut Sick Days

Design can be inspiring, boost creativity and considerably increase staff productivity when done correctly. Whereas comfort can play a huge part in staff motivation. In fact, a study by Your Health has found that 5.2 working hours a week could be wasted by someone who has back pain or arthritis affected by poor posture or inadequate seating.

Give your staff the lift they need by investing in their environment. Happy staff are hard workers, so an investment in your office décor could mean more work gets done and you make more money!

Make the Most of Your Space

Need to employ more staff to run your growing company but short on space? Well, there’s no need to move. Instead, save the money and spend a fraction of it on clever office space design with a commercial interior expert.

Moving furniture around and fitting more power points could be all it takes to make your premises work for your expanding business. Functional design is the way forward for a pleasant and efficient working environment.

Save the Planet

Okay, so this may be a slight exaggeration but an office refurbishment could make your business much more energy efficient and help you do your bit towards cutting emissions.

Energy saving fittings will also save you cash! According to the Confederation of British Industry, UK businesses waste an average of between 10% and 20% of the energy they buy. Creating a green awareness programme in your office may cut this figure, whereas double glazing can cut your heat loss by half and compact fluorescent lighting uses 80% less energy than regular light bulbs.
