5 Ways to Freshen Up Your Business Premises

When business is booming, it’s sometimes difficult to find the time put anything back into it. But, we know that what we put into a business is what we get out of it. It may be time to freshen your business up so you catch the eye of not only current clients, but potential ones too. So, how can you make sure your business always looks presentable?

Clean the Windows

Your windows can actually be a vital part of your business. Whether you use them to display products in your shop or they’re only used to advertise current vacancies in the company, a window can say a lot. Dirty windows can say more than you think. For example, dirty windows in a laundrette may tell customers that the owners take no pride in maintaining their property. Would you feel safe asking someone to clean your clothes when they don’t keep their own premises clean?


It’s easy for businesses to build up clutter the longer they’re trading. You may see piles of paperwork unfiled or excess merchandise stuffed in the stock room. Not only does it look unattractive to customers but eventually it becomes a health and safety hazard. Businesses need a little spring clean every now and then, so you may want to appoint someone to de-clutter every few months. It will ensure your business and paperwork stay organised.


Businesses can grow quicker than originally planned and you may find that you have to invest money in refurbishment for growth purposes. You may need more office space for more employees, you may want to completely redesign the way you merchandise in order to bring in new customers or maybe you want to keep your current employees happy by adding a new canteen. Whatever the reason, you may need Ozoneinteriors, the office refurbishment experts. Refurbishment can make your business look brand new.

New Signage

Nothing says new like a fresh business sign. Whether you change your branding completely or you just replace an old sign above your storefront, it will certainly attract people. Businesses have to be ever changing and ever competing to survive. If you’ve had the same visuals for the last twenty years, it’s definitely time for an upgrade. If you’re worried that your customers won’t recognise your work straight away, take that worry off your shoulders. It won’t take people long to connect your new signage with your business, and soon people will be looking for your brand.

Don’t Ignore Repairs

Just like every other building, a commercial building needs maintaining. It’s easy to forget about chipped paint work or leaky tap while you’re busy, but they’re problems that need addressing. When a client walks into your premises, they need to see a clean, well maintained and welcoming environment. If there are stains on the carpets, marks on the walls and they’re forced to use a broken toilet, they may not return.

Your business premises are an extension of your business so it needs to make the right impression. Take care of it and it’ll take care of you.
