From a business point of view, it’s always a good idea to combine creativity, flare and vision. We all want our premises to be welcoming and memorable, whether that be an office space or a shop floor. It’s all about impressing the customer/client as soon as they walk through the door, first impressions count for a lot after all!
From time to time we may consider a change and want to get a team of professionals to do it all for us, perhaps getting the old team from Changing Rooms back together with Carol ‘Smiley’ Smiley may be a bit of a hard task – it’s safe to say we want our business looking the bee’s knees without Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen’s ‘touch.’
It’s only human nature to give the impression you’ve forked out for the pleasure, whether that is fact or fiction. Nevertheless, here’s how to get started on that new modern feel for your company, while saving on those pennies…
Before you even think about coming up with new ideas, the old saying of out with the old and in with the new needs to be preserved. You can do this by decluttering the areas you want to renovate, the primary function of a room takes priority over anything else – plan the necessities and work around them.
Once you have the dreaded decluttering process down to a tee, it’s time to to think about igniting inspiration into your home once more! Picking the right colour schemes on your colour chart is important, as well as combining this with fabric samples and photographs to give that warm welcoming feeling to those who are interested in your product and/or service.
If your premises is within a small space, less is often more. The worst thing you can do is overfill the office or shop floor with statement furniture and then not actually be able get access to what a customer really visited for, without climbing over a few things first including the people you work with… Perhaps buy one piece of furniture that you love and maximise its potential for future years to come.
The ABS Group provide an interior design and space planning service combining the creativity, flare & vision you would expect from an interior design consultancy with an extensive technical & architectural knowledge base. We have carefully chosen our design team from a broad range of backgrounds so that we can operate effectively across a variety of sectors.
Some clients simply require us to come up with a design package for a tender, while others fully outsource the entire transformation process, including tendering and project management.
We start by understanding your business, its culture, any budgetary constraints and your future requirements, to ensure your design will align with your strategy, as well as being visually pleasing. The detail and quality of information we take at this initial stage forms the foundations of your project which are vital to the end result.
As part of taking your brief, we will carry out a workplace audit and map your existing circumstances. This often helps determine the size and type of new work space you require. Sometimes this process highlights new alternatives, for example re-engineering your space and adopting new working practices within your existing property rather than moving.
