Finding the right office suite rental for your business can be stressful. Whether you're facing too many options, or the choices are limited, there are several tips that will help you adapt to an office suite rental that isn't quite what you wanted, but will serve the purposes needed while remaining affordable.
You may have the idea that you know exactly where you want your office to be located. However, if you're having a hard time finding an available space within that area, you may need to expand your search to outside areas. If one location is too much money, a mile down the road may offer the same size space at a cheaper cost just because it's a mile further down the road. That's far enough to lower the lease rates, but not to deter people from coming to your business.
If the appearance isn't quite what you'd hoped for, don't worry – there are lots of things that you can do to spruce it up without breaking any lease agreements for improvements. Make sure to read through the lease entirely to find out how limited your abilities are to make the space your own. If the lease prevents you from making any permanent changes, like painting the walls, you'll need to get a little more creative with how you jazz it up a bit.
Look up – if the ceiling lights have the plastic covers, you can buy fluorescent light covers that will slide into place and make a dramatic impact on the appearance of the space from the second you walk in. These covers can be found in various forms – everything from big, puffy white clouds to detailed mosaic designs – so you can find the design that will bring in the color and style that you hope for.
Flooring can be covered using area rugs that can be leased or purchased. If you're expecting a lot of foot traffic in the space, leasing the rugs that you'll use to cover the floor will actually be the best option for you. When the rugs get dirty, you can call to have them picked up and replaced – or you can schedule regular replacements as needed.
Window treatments are another temporary way to bring life to a space. Choose light fabrics and you'll be able to mount the hardware using nothing more than basic Command hooks -- when your lease is up, the rods will come down with a small tug of the adhesive in the hook.
It can take time, but eventually you'll find a place that is close to exactly what you want. With a few small changes, it will be just what your business needs to grow.Share
