One of the biggest trends in design right now is industrial design. If you own a company, it may actually be more affordable to rent a big industrial space like a warehouse and then turn it into office spaces. While gutting the warehouse may not be something within your budget, turning it into a space that's more workable may be something you can do.
Have It Painted
When you have old, dingy, peeling paint on the walls, it's not going to create a friendly and welcoming work environment for employees. Not only that, but a lot of paint from before 1978 contains lead in it which can be harmful to your employees health. One of the best ways that you can update your space is to contact a commercial interior painting service. Because the ceilings in your warehouse are so tall, these services will typically set up scaffolding so that they can reach the ceiling and the tops of the walls.
Another thing you may want to have painted is the cement floor; that way you don't have to worry about getting carpet installed which can be more expensive. When painters paint the floor, they can also apply a sealant on the top to prevent it from chipping or fading.
Once you have the floors painted, you can get big area rugs in certain areas to help warm up the space. Although rugs may not be feasible to put under everyone's desks, you can put them in areas like the waiting room or office space, which will also help to separate the spaces.
Get Enough Furniture
You don't want to overcrowd your warehouse space with too much furniture because it will look cluttered, but having enough furniture may help it look put together. Having designated desks and chairs for your employees is a must. Additionally, setting up a big conference table is also something that you may benefit from. When choosing furniture just make sure that it fits well in the space. So, if you have tons of space and not a lot of employees, then going with oversized furniture may be the way to go.
Paint, rugs, and furniture can go a really long way when you are trying to transform an industrial space into something a bit cozier. To learn more about converting the appearance of a commercial space with paint, contact commercial interior painting services in your area.
