If you have ever embarked on a home renovation project, you most likely know that remodeling can be messy, inconvenient, and expensive until the work is completed and you can enjoy the result. Commercial renovation requires similar planning and budgeting, but it can be well-worth the investment if it improves business efficiency and productivity, increases a building’s safety, improves business image, and attracts more customers. In this post, we’ll take a look at a few tips to minimize any headaches you might experience with business renovations, as well as maximize the enjoyment of your commercial space.

Hire licensed, insured professionals

Just like home remodeling, it’s important to hire a licensed, insured contracting company that oversees the aspects of the project, obtains the proper permits, and makes sure all the enhancements comply with local codes and ordinances. Many business owners also decide to consult an architect for ideas and feedback before moving forward with any renovations.

Have both a short-term and long-term plan

During remodeling, business cannot simply grind to a halt for long, so it’s good to have a plan for how your business will continue to function while the renovations are in progress. Think about how you will continue to serve your clients, deliver your services or products, and where your employees will have space to work.

Before going forward with renovations, think about how the business might grow in the future. Will you have enough space for future expansion? Generally, renovations should help create space so that you don’t outgrow your improvements within a few years.

Consider increasing productivity and efficiency  

Think carefully about the office environment you strive to project, and use renovation projects in your favor. Does your business need a stimulating, vibrant environment, or a more serene, calm atmosphere? Color choice impacts efficiency and productivity, as well as ambience. You can read more about using color choices to match your goals here.

Studies also show that natural lighting has a positive effect on employee health, wellbeing, and in an indirect way, productivity. Adding windows, skylights, and natural lighting is a way not only to benefit employees, but can also be green improvements designed to reduce utility bills and energy consumption.

Remodeling and adding an addition to an existing home are improvement projects that many homeowners consider. Home additions and improvement of living space combined with endless possibilities for usage, materials, colors, and other preferences are the creative homeowner’s dream. However, big renovation and addition projects require planning, budgeting, and hiring the right contractors. Being prepared for the inconvenience and expense of adding onto your home will help minimize surprises and hassles.   

Planning: When adding on to your existing home, make sure the addition will be integrated seamlessly into the overall design and aesthetic of the house. A home addition requires planning and effort to make it look like it belongs to the house, and hasn’t just been tacked on haphazardly. A trusted architect or building contractor can help in this area. Likewise, nearly all home additions require permits from the local city or county government. A good contractor should help you get the proper permits to ensure the addition is up to code. Adding on to your home without the proper permits can lead to code violations and difficulties when it’s time to sell the home. 

Budgeting: Home additions are costly. estimates that adding an additional bathroom or bedroom can easily cost $25,000-$50,000. Homeowners can save money by choosing to remodel an existing room instead or by converting an existing space, such as basement or attic rooms, into a bedroom, bathroom, or family room. Also, expect your property insurance to go up a bit, and plan for the possibility of unforeseen expenses such as rotting floorboards that need replacement or mold cleanup.

Hiring the Right Contractor: One of the biggest decisions to make is who to hire. Any contractor should be licensed and insured, and be able to help you obtain the proper building permits. Before you interview contractors, have a detailed plan of what materials you want to use and your vision for the finished product. Expect unexpected expenses here and there, but ask for receipts from the contractor, and don’t pay the full bill until the job is finished. Don’t forget to have a clear idea before the work begins about what hours the contractor will work, what they will clean up at the end of the day, and how much noise and dust will be created. Finally, ask which aspects of the job the contractor will do, and how much of it they plan to sub-contract out. For more questions to ask a potential contractor, see this article from U.S. News and World Report.
