It’s time to update your tired or outdated office! If you haven’t outlined a clear budget to pull off the transformation you’ve been dreaming of, you might be overlooking some safe and effective workarounds. Many office updates can be achieved with a simple coat of paint. In fact, we bet you didn’t know you could even paint these parts of your office:
Vinyl siding is reliable, appealing, and almost maintenance-free. This building material is sure to last in Mississauga’s climate; however, you may start to notice that your exterior colour is beginning to look a little sun-bleached, even splotchy. This occurs naturally over time, and the only way to change the colour is to replace it… or paint it! That’s right; you don’t need to spend a fortune updating your exterior. You can paint over vinyl with “vinyl-friendly” paint. For better results, choose a paint that is similar to, or lighter than, the existing colour.
There’s nothing quite like a beautifully polished hardwood floor to give a cozy yet refined office vibe. If you operate your Mississauga business out of a converted house, your hardwood floor has probably seen its fair share of foot traffic. Not to mention, dozens of rolling chairs, spills, dents, and scratches. If your wood flooring has reached the point beyond salvaging, you can give it a new life with a fresh and stylish coat of paint. Aim for a neutral glossy colour that will brighten the room.
Built-ins and cabinets can make your office look as if it hasn’t been touched in thirty years. Updating your cabinets to something modern and chic will give your employees a sense of pride to work there. Old cabinetry may be showing signs of wear and tear. However, sturdy wooden cabinetry can easily look brand new with a fresh coat of paint and modern hardware. This cost-saving technique is also good for the environment, as it keeps your perfectly good cabinets out of the dump.
Take a look around your office right now. Are your employees sitting at old, repurposed desks or using dingy filing cabinets? Are your board members or prospective clients gathering around outdated tables? Many furniture pieces can be sanded down and varnished or refinished to look brand new while saving you money.
