Over time many businesses outgrow their workspace and are forced to seek alternative, larger premises. This was exactly the situation for one Kent business. That is until the office and warehouse space below its existing premises was vacated by the previous tenant. This posed the perfect opportunity for the Kent firm to increase its workspace, yet avoiding a costly move.
The downstairs offices were far from suitable for a busy workforce – it was dark, dingy, with broken walls, ceiling and flooring. There was no other option than a full office refurbishment. What the company really needed was a meeting space that gave a good impression to its clients and a larger space for its expanding workforce to regularly meet.
JBH Refurbishments was once again called in to work its interior design magic. The Kent refurbishment company was given the brief to create a warm and welcoming meeting room, but initially JBH needed to carry out severe repair work, which involved:
- Partitioning the door that led into the main warehouse space
- Repairing and plastering the damaged walls
- Installing a new suspended ceiling
- Decorating the walls
Next JBH Refurbishments removed the solid-wall partitioning, which sectioned off the room from the entrance hall. In its place a fully glazed, aluminium-framed partition was installed and finished with frosted manifestation for privacy.
Once the ground work was done, the decoration could commence. To create the warm and welcoming effect, JBH painted a feature wall using a vibrant orange, and complementary wall art was hung on the walls.
The carpet tile flooring also featured accents of orange in various shades. The vertical and horizontal blocked lines helped to give a feeling of space in what is fundamentally a narrow room.
Being a turnkey office refurbishment, JBH completed the look with stylish boardroom furniture. The oak effect table and black leather chairs give an executive feel. In the corner, a separate seating area with a small coffee table provides a more informal seating configuration.
The client says, “We couldn’t have been happier with the end result. JBH completely understood the brief and exceeded our expectations. The transformation is fantastic and we would certainly recommend them to other Kent businesses looking to improve their working environment.”
