If you’re planning to pursue any construction projects for your commercial property, hiring the right contractor can make a significant difference in the result of your project. Whether it’s a complete refurbishment of a building, an office redesign or industrial renovation, the hired contractor has so much impact on the materials used, the timeline and the successful outcome of your project. This is why there are a handful of factors to consider when looking for the right contractor.
Office refurbishment is an exciting time for any business because it carries with it a sense of a fresh start and revitalisation. It’s usually easy to make the decision to refurbish your office that makes you conjure various ideas that are Pinterest-worthy. Before you tear down the walls, however, there’s a necessary process to make the office of your dreams come to life.
Here are some tips on how to make your office refurbishment plan a success:
Office Refurbishment Ideas
Everybody knows when it’s time for an office refurbishment. Employees probably know first. Because they’re the ones who create the workarounds and trip over the network cables. Employers know when they see productivity and morale plummeting. Worst of all, clients know when they sense a ‘tired’, unmotivated workplace.
The good news is that an office refurbishment doesn’t have to be complex, a risk to business, or way beyond your budget. StanLil Contractors is an experienced interior specialist, with over two decades experience, and our best refurbishments have been the simplest. It all comes down to seeing the potential in your office space that’s not being used – yet.
StanLil Can Help With Your Office Fit Out in London
Kent is home to a number of the UK’s most popular holiday resorts, but it’s fast becoming a business hotspot, too. There’s plenty of reasons for companies to flourish here. The location is great – most areas are just 40 minutes from London, and you can drive direct to Europe! The survival rates for new businesses in the area is 93%, and investment is looking healthy. Tunbridge Wells recently received £500 million for new office and retail spaces in the town centre.
Office Design and Fit Out in London
Staff who love their office environment work harder than those who don’t. It’s a simple equation but one that Apple and Google have embraced wholesale. And it makes sense. A workforce that has learned to complain about their workspace waste time pointing out its many shortcomings. A space that is loved, however, provides no such opportunities.
So, how to create a space that is loved? In our years of experience creating office spaces, it’s all about employees feeling that they have a stake in the space they occupy for a good proportion of the week. That’s not just about bringing in photos and a pot plant. It’s about being part of the design and planning of it. After all, who knows the space better than the people who work in it?

Tailored Office Refurbishment in Kent
There tend to be 5 main reasons why businesses in Kent call us to talk about an office refurbishment:
- Brand Refresh. The colours and messaging are changing, so the business takes the decision to combine a refit and refurbishment.
- Office No Longer Fit For Purpose. The business recognises that the current office layout reflects the past, and they want an office that moves them forward.
- Taking Ownership. Companies often ‘make do’ with legacy layouts when moving into a new office. There comes a time, though, when it’s necessary to make it your own.
- An Alternative to Moving. It’s a costly and disruptive process to move location. Businesses needing more space set StanLil the challenge of creating it as part of the refurbishment.
- WoW the Clients. Your reception area speaks volumes to clients, and it’s the first thing they see. Businesses decide to refurbish key areas to ensure they’re giving the right message!

Looking for an Office Design Company in Sussex?
As a Sussex-based business, we’re often asked what are the biggest changes we’ve seen in the region, over the past 20 years. We have to say that the approach to office design is the biggest shift we’ve encountered. It’s all about a change in perspective, from management to employees.
In the late 90s, an office design often amounted to little more than new furniture and a fresh lick of paint. In the 21st century the approach is very different. Now, the majority of businesses we work with want to create the optimum working environment for their employees. Why? Because they know it’s the best way to boost productivity, and retain their best people.

When we ask our Sussex clients their reason for refurbishment, the majority tell us that they need an office environment that reflects 21st century work. The office has become a very different place over the past 20 years. And contemporary corporate design demonstrates this. Gone are the heavy desks, the solid architecture, and the dusty filing cabinets. The workplace is now a more flexible and adaptable environment, suited to a range of working practices.
