Revamp Your Office On A Budget

easy ways to Revamp Your Office On A Budget


Do you ever walk into your office and feel like it has transformed into a dull, depressing space? Sitting in the same 4 walls every day and never changing your surroundings can trick your brain and make you feel very fatigued all the time. If you don’t have the money to full splurge on a new renovation for your office, don’t worry; there are plenty of ways you can upgrade your space without having to spend all of your Christmas party fund.

5 Simple & Easy Ways to Revamp Your Office

  1. Make The Place Smell Great

Did you know that Febreze now makes a Spiced Apple Room Spray? If you didn’t, you are missing out. If you feel like your office is a little stale and smells like burnt toast, then invest in a room spray or an air freshener to liven the room up a bit. It will not only make the room smell better but will also be a bit of a talking point with your colleagues.

  1. Add Some Personal Touches

If you know that everyone in your office is a fan of a certain film franchise or a TV Show like Game Of Thrones, you can vamp up the room instantly by adding some funny art from the series or a poster from the film. You can even go one step further with Funko Figures and pick out a character for each of you workers without them knowing, wait until everyone has gone home and place them on their desks for a laugh in the morning. You’ll suddenly have a room filled with funny references and personal touches.

  1. Get Rid Of The Corkboard

Who even uses a corkboard these days? The space on the wall where your under-used corkboard currently resides could be the home of something much more fun. You could purchase a dartboard online and hold monthly tournaments to bring out the competitive side of your colleagues- stick on a blackboard to count up the scores, and the loser has to buy everyone a drink at the bar after work.

  1. Get Rid of Unnecessary Departments

If you have a reception area which never gets used or a showroom on the premises which hasn’t held a sales pitch in years, it might be time to get rid. You can hire equipment today to rip out those old parts of the building and repurpose them into something everyone will use. It could be a new staff room with some table tennis tables or even a place for the active amongst your workers to practice yoga at lunch time.

  1. Nature

Plants are a one-way ticket to better creativity and a livelier office. Having a dose of nature in the office is proven to calm us and helps our focus when working. Also, you can make it fun by making a rota each week to water the plant. You could even hold a competition to name to office plant and offer a prize to the winner, as long as no one picks ‘Planty McPlantface’.
