4 Money Saving Tips for Your Office Renovation

Written by Posted On Thursday, 14 March 2019 15:55


Renovating your office is a great way to improve the quality of your workspace and give your clients a better first impression of you and your business. However, office renovations can also be costly affairs. If you want to renovate your office without putting your business in financial jeopardy, here are four great cost control measures you can take.

Consider Refurbished or Lightly Used Office Furniture

When making upgrades to your office, new office furniture can be a costly component of the project. Luckily, there are ways to get better furniture for your employees without breaking the bank. Refurbished and lightly used furniture will come in at a lower price point and still deliver on the quality and comfort you want your employees to have. If you’re buying used office furniture in large quantities, you may even be able to negotiate additional discounts.

Take the Opportunity to Make Your Office More Energy Efficient

One of the best ways to offset the costs of your renovation is to making energy-efficient upgrades in the process. Whether you’re improving your insulation, installing low-energy lighting fixtures or improving your HVAC system, the energy savings will pay dividends in the years to come. By installing double-glazed windows, you might be able to reduce your utility costs. This will allow you to keep your future bills under control and lower your operating expenses going forward.

Be Sure to Do Some Comparison Shopping

When it comes to renovations, it’s usually a good idea to get estimates from more than one contractor. If you simply take the first bid you get, there’s a good chance that you’ll end up overpaying. By shopping around and getting bids from multiple local contractors, you can find the company that will give you the best possible pricing on the work you want done.

Focus on the Most Impactful Projects

If you need to renovate your office on a budget, prioritizing projects is essential. The visual impact of certain upgrades will be much higher than others, meaning that they should take priority. For example, replacing old, worn-out carpeting or light fixtures will make an enormous difference in how your office space looks without costing too much. Plumbing upgrades, while they may be beneficial, are less likely to stand out to visitors. By focusing on the amount of impact each project will have, you can get the best bang for your buck during the renovation.

These are just a few of the many easy ways your company can keep costs under control during its coming office renovation. If you’re considering a set of upgrades to your office space but don’t want to break the bank, consider using these simple tips to make your renovation budget go farther.
