As a business owner, you have worked hard to produce your wares and offer them to the world. It takes a lot of effort and tenacity to keep the momentum going while trying to innovate and remain relevant. Sometimes you become solely focused on your products, and your work becomes neglected. 

Try one or all of these ideas to give the place where you spend many of your waking hours a refresh. It will benefit you, your staff, and your customers.

Add Unique Aesthetics

If you are in a space that has a staircase, then you have a novel opportunity to showcase your style by upgrading the current stairway to one with steel balustrades. They are a safety-minded and eye-catching all-in-one solution for your needs. One of the features of using steel is that the material is chameleon-like – it will match any aesthetic from industrial to modern and everything in between. The strong medium equates to safety for everyone passing through your business.


Another fun way to show off your flair is with flooring. There are a plethora of options from which to choose. Here are some creative and durable choices.

  • Concrete – stamped or coloured
  • Manufactured wood
  • Reclaimed Barnwood
  • Epoxy systems
  • Cork
  • Bamboo

If you have many distinct areas within your office, consider a mix and match approach to lend a different feel to each space.

Make a Comfortable Space

Create a comfortable and open area for people to congregate, sit, and relax within your building. Customers and clients can be in your world to look at your products, sit for a meeting, or engage your services. Make it a more memorable event and let them experience the feel of your workplace. They will have an organic opportunity to talk with you and your team members in a warm and neutral location while discussing your goods, what you do and why you do it.

Additionally, and as a bonus, this inviting area will allow your staff to come together outside of their routine work desk to discuss strategy or bounce ideas off of one another in a different environment. They can sit back and let their creative juices flow while talking shop.

Select comfortable and versatile seating that you can move to form different configurations based on the current need. Add soft pillows with visual interest and texture to enhance the space. Footrests and worktables will round out the style.

Update the Lighting

Lighting can significantly change or enhance the way your office looks and feels. Here is a video highlighting how different types of light can affect your space. This information applies to both offices and homes.


Become DDA Compliant

A key tenet of making your company more inviting is making it inviting to everyone. If you are not DDA compliant, now is the best time to make that change. DDA stands for Disability Discrimination Act-Australia. It was enacted in 1992 to eradicate discrimination based on disability.  

Determining areas that are not accessible ranges from easy fixes to more in-depth changes. Consult a professional to ensure you are making safe changes to benefit and give access to everyone.
