The start of the year gives rise to an ever increasing number of lifestyle focussed changes, from Dry January to Veganuary. But what about an office decorator: where do we focus our thoughts at this time of new beginnings?
Of course, like any business, we have hopes for a prosperous year ahead and to maintain the high standards that our customers and clients have come to expect. But how do we plan to achieve this? We are a very unique breed, and our pledges for the year may at first glance not quite be what you expect!
Be more invisible
We don’t mean that we won’t answer your calls! When a business relies on their working space to maintain their growth, the last thing that it needs is to lose working space during a redecoration. Indeed this is often the reason that businesses put off decorative and maintenance projects. We structure our programme of work around the client’s calendar, so you don’t even notice that we’re there! Working over weekends and evenings if necessary isn’t just great for the office business, though. It means that your office decorator can work more effectively and efficiently, achieving a higher quality finish in less time.
Preparing for the future
The quality of a decorative finish is always down to the initial preparation of the space. So a key principle for an office decorator to live by is to place a high value on the preparation process. From walls to floors, electrics to utilities, your office maintenance and decoration should be thoughtfully prepared. This extends to planning the space as well as physically preparing a surface for painting or treatment. Office spaces increasingly rely on evolving technology and should be compatible with wireless technologies to remain competitive in the modern market. So part of the redecoration should prepare for future technology.
Know our colours
When you’ve seen a colour palette that’s it, right? Actually, wrong. Colour trends change and evolve, and it’s part of our job to be abreast of what’s going on in colour. So, what better place to start than the Pantone colour of the year! For 2019 this is 16-1546 Living Coral. Pantone describes it as:
An animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge. Living Coral embraces us with warmth and nourishment to provide comfort and buoyancy in our continually shifting environment.
For some organisations, colour is important in building a constructive working atmosphere. For others, it’s important to appear on trend. Others focus their colour schemes around their corporate branding, helping to build a unified atmosphere. We can help to guide any unsure clients to the right approach for them and to do that, we are constantly learning about and experiencing colour.
Stay in touch with old friends
When you’re choosing an office decorator, you will naturally seek recommendations and testimonials. We proudly and openly share the businesses and offices that we’ve worked on. So our future clients for 2019 can gain confidence in our successful working relationships of the past. As we prioritise our clients’ work when structuring our own, we can proudly say that we make friends wherever we go!
No, we don’t mean endless cups of coffee and discussing last night’s Dancing on Ice! We already pride ourselves on our levels of communication with office clients when drawing up our programme of office decoration. We know that a decoration project will be achieved more effectively and efficiently if the right arm knows what the left arm is doing. Communication means no surprises, and no surprises make everyone happier. So let’s work together to go into a happy and fresh 2019!
