Commercial Renovations

When you own your own business, keeping your building up and running is of the utmost importance. You may be an incredible businessman and run an excellent, quality business but if your building is out dated or in need of repair, you may be losing out on business. Unfortunately, image is everything and renovating your commercial space can boost business. There are a few things to consider when starting a renovation:

Windows and Doors: The entrance to your building can say a lot to potential customers. Clean and neat is all it really needs to be. If windows are old and falling into disrepair, replacing them with updated windows will add a clean look and save you money when heating and cooling. The door should be wide enough for wheel chair accessibility but also easily opened. Updating your door to a double door or a new door is a low cost renovation but one that can really stand out.

Entry and Waiting Room: Whether it be a large waiting area or smaller entry area, it needs to present a look of cleanliness, professionalism and comfort. From repainting to wainscoting, there are tons of options that can make the statement you need to.

Flooring Options: Depending upon the type of company you are running, you’re flooring should not just make a statement but be appropriate. As a general rule, any facility that deals with liquids should have flooring that is durable and easily cleaned. From medical to car service, the floors are harboring everything from grease to bacteria. Carpeting is not a smart option whereas porcelain tile or even painted concrete floors may be an option. In offices, a durable low ply carpet is an option. They have come a long way and have hundreds of patterns and colors – they no longer look like indoor/outdoor carpet.

Lighting: You want your business well lit. It shows you have nothing to hide and gives a bright and positive feel. Everything from canned recessed lighting to track or medallion can be used. A well-lit business also means less accidents, more productivity and even better moods. Lighting can make all the difference for customers and employees. Energy saving options are also available that can cut down on your electric costs.

Walls: Again, it depends on what kind of business you have as to what you might want to do with your walls. A fresh coat of paint may be all you need or moving the walls out could be an option. Tile on the walls or wainscoting or murals. There are many options and routes to take that can be done and will make your business stand out.

You may need a complete renovation – tearing down the inner walls and restructuring your space. You may not need a large waiting room but decide to add another restroom. Maybe the ceiling needs to be raised or lowered and a whole new wing added on. Whatever your needs may be, there is a company that can make it happen.
