To A New Look: Common Renovation Mistakes You Should Avoid

Renovating the office can drastically change both its look and function. Unfortunately, however, this is a tedious process, and far too many people take the wrong approach and additions during fitouts and renovations. Whether it’s a small or big project, there are certain design rules that should be followed to achieve a great outcome.

To help you out, here is a quick breakdown of some common renovation mistakes and how you can avoid them.

Poor Budgeting

Many individuals often fail to budget their finances and expenses properly, leading to an expensive fitout. Renovations can easily burn through your savings if you’re not careful. Several problems and hurdles may come up during the project, which could cost you extra. To prevent this from happening, take the time to allocate funds for all the necessary expenses beforehand, and have a backup fund just in case. Office fitouts don’t have to be expensive. You just have to make the right choices.

Bad Design

The whole point to an office fitout is to give the space a fresh, new look, so you have to pay careful attention to planning your design. A successful renovation combines function and aesthetics, beauty and practicality, to achieve a great outcome. Far too many people focus only on the design, leaving out the function and practicality.

Think about how your new design will affect the existing décor before making any big changes. If it’s going to clash with certain elements, you may want to adjust and make compromises.

Copying Other Office Designs

While it’s true that imitation is the best form of flattery, copying fitout designs from other offices thinking that their concept is the right thing to do with your property, can backfire. Your property has its own style, budget, and location and you need to look at it in its own right because copying other renovation ideas could lead to disaster. You can draw inspiration from their colours, arrangements, and other things, but always incorporate personal design elements.

An office fitout is a major investment because aside from money for the expenses, you are also putting your employees’ productivity, comfort, and convenience on the line. Get in touch with us and we’ll help you give your office a new look without busting your budget.
