Keeping Your Commercial Building Fresh with Decorations

Making sure your commercial building is attractive, fresh and well decorated is essential in giving off a positive and inviting business vibe that makes people want to engage with your business.

To illustrate, it’s no good investing money on the inside of your shop, for the outside to have flaky paint, signs falling down and smashed windows, which can all turn potential customers off. They wouldn’t see the funky furniture you’ve invested in, because the chances are they’d be so put off that they wouldn’t even come in at all.

So why else does your commercial building need to look good?

Impress potential clients

Does the exterior or interior of your office need a lick of paint? Is the ‘once was white’ now a dirty shade of brown? Does the guttering need fixing? Signs remaking? Much in the same way that people judge another person in a matter of seconds, it can also ring true for a company’s building. Refreshing its appearance can give the right impression and make people feel confident in investing in you and your businesses services, increasing your bottom line.

Take care of historical buildings

When you’re tasked with taking care of historical buildings, you may have a list of maintenance tasks as long as your arm. One of the things that should be on that list is preserving the walls with a painting and decorating programme that keeps them looking fresh and well looked after – both inside and out.

Instil confidence and reduce infection

A clean looking commercial building can inspire confidence and give an air of cleanliness that may not be possible with dirty, run down walls. One of the areas where this is most important is in hospitals and medical settings, where people want to be reassured that hygiene and sterility is high on the agenda.

Bearing this in mind, at Marshels we work with healthcare providers across Hampshire and surrounding areas and aim to further reduce the risk of infection by using special anti-bacterial paint, which has been used within healthcare settings for a number of years to protect against the spread of superbugs like MRSA.

Increase productivity

Making sure that your employee’s working environment is fresh and uplifting can make them feel happier and increase productivity. On the contrary, offering a dark, gloomy and run down office can negatively impact an employee’s state of mind and productivity levels, making them suffer and damaging your profits.

Decorating a commercial building can be a huge challenge, especially if a company isn’t sure what it needs to project the impression they’d desire. At Marshels, we can help to take that stress away. Call us today to see how we can help with your commercial decorating needs.

Why You Should Never Ignore Home Exterior Refurbishment

If you are looking to add value to your home with the idea of working your way up the property ladder at some point in time, there are a lot of tried and tested ways to enhance where you currently live. There are many effective and popular ways to enhance or make the most of the interior space of your home, from improving central heating and updating services, or investing in a loft conversion, garage conversion, or even an extension. Whilst these are excellent ways to improve the value and appeal of your home, it’s important not to neglect the kerb appeal of your home.

Here are 4 exterior refurbishment ideas that are guaranteed to help raise the value of your property:

Upgrade your windows

Replacing your windows can add a lot of value to your property. As technology continues to improve, so does the energy efficiency of PVCu windows. Whether your property is a modern build or a period property, PVCu windows can be chosen to suit any home – whilst many people associate PVCu with plain white window frames, a wide range of imitation timber effects and colour choices are available to provide the perfect aesthetic match for any home.

Windows are one of the first things that a potential will notice about a home from the kerb, so choosing great looking, energy efficient and low maintenance windows, will improve your chances of making a sale.

Invest in new fencing/boundaries

To help increase the value of your property, investing in the boundaries of your home is always a useful exterior renovation. New fencing can provide an attractive boundary for your home to increase kerb appeal, but this is not the only benefit. Updating the boundaries of your home can also improve security and privacy.

Fences can make it harder for intruders to enter your property, particularly if combined with a locked or electrical gate. Privacy fences make it harder to see into your property, and will also provide you with much improved privacy in your back garden.

Create off-street parking space

If you don’t currently have a driveway, creating off-street parking can make a considerable difference to the value of a property, especially in an urban location where streets are busy and road parking is limited. If you currently have a driveway, but can only fit one car, it might be worth investigating sacrificing part of, or all of your front garden to create extra parking spaces. A large percentage of households now have more than 1 vehicle, so sufficient parking space can be very valuable.

Make any necessary exterior repairs

If the exterior of your home is in a poor state of repair, many potential buyers will decide against making an offer on your property before they even enter the front door. Here are some actions you can take to improve the exterior of your home and improve kerb appeal:

  • Chimney and roof repairs
  • Refurbished fascias and soffits
  • New guttering
  • Rendering and pointing repairs

By carrying out these exterior refurbishments, as well as improving the appearance of your house for a potential buyer you may also help to provide better results should a buyer carry out an independent survey.

If your home exterior is in need of some expert attention, you can call Marshels today on 01252 377714 or contact them online.
