The common saying, “dress the way you want to be addressed’’ is true. And by implication, it extends to an office appearance and business settings. Everyone has a little bit of prejudice; it is why you: visit the places you visit, have those set of close buddies, prefer to buy your drink from the guy down the street and not the other one. The appearance of your office also determines the type of people that would work for you and those that would be active customers. The appearance of your office adds value to your business in the following ways.
1. Boosted Brand Esteem:
Just the way you esteem yourself for your values and virtues, a properly laid out and organized office space boost your business’ brand esteem. It really does not matter if your furniture set is a new one or if you had gotten a good deal of used office furniture Houston; what matters is that a good, set-up office boosts a brand’s confidence and speaks on the behalf of your business to visitors.
The first impressions are usually unforgettable. The appearance of your office speaks a large volume about your style and manner of business to your visitors. When they get impressed, they feel relaxed, and compelled to be loyal. In fact, some of them will drop appreciable compliments about the place.
3. The law of attraction:
An office space does not quite follow the magnetic laws of attraction. Here, likes attract. Your office setting preaches your class and style; therefore, it brings people of similar style and class to get into business with you. Your office appearance dictates the majority of your visitors, repeating customers, and referrals. Many people are in active business with some corporate organizations just because they caught an impressive glimpse of their office space and they felt attracted to ‘quality’ and ‘seriousness’ implied by appearance.
How do you feel in a disorganized area? Do you feel as comfortable and relieved as you would have been in a nicely arranged environment with attractive furniture? Most likely not. An organized and impressively laid out office speaks a language of comfort to both staff and customers. Comfortability is known to improve productivity. It makes your customers want to extend a handshake for a little while. When you see that a discussion is extending beyond the normal time, take a look at how comfortable your customer balances in their chair; that is how your office makes them feel!
5. It earns you respect and value:
Have you ever had anyone who looks at you and says, “with all you have here, I can see that you have a high standard/good taste”? Well, that is how good gigs find you! People understand that when they come to your office, which has such wonderful ambiance, they are coming with good offers that befits your appearance. For those who overstate your values, you may be the one telling them, “actually, we are also open for this type of deal”. Appearance influences values.
