I designed this office space almost 5 years ago and since then I have done quite a few offices. Seriously, I’ve done more offices now than I ever would have imagined.
I really love creating fresh, modern work spaces for people. Who says your office has to be blah with fluorescent lighting? Not me.
Here are some before & afters of the office I wrapped up this past weekend.
Lobby area BEFORE:
Progress of old flooring ripped up and getting ready for fresh concrete to be stained. I also decided to patch up those two interior windows because they just make the space feel dated.
After closing off the window on the back wall it became a great spot for a feature. Shiplap painted dark gray for the win! Doing a smaller scale desk and hanging pendant lighting over it gives it a clean, fresh, more spacious feel.
The hallway was filled with fluorescent lighting and a blah paint color.
We removed the fluorescent lighting, added my favorite industrial pendants from Ikea, painted the walls a crisp white and the trim a dark gray. I don’t have the full after photo for the hallway yet because I am getting some prints framed to hang, but I will add it in later.
Sitting area in the lobby BEFORE!
Simple, functional and not crammed feeling at all. The saddle leather couch really steals the show for me 🙂
Here’s the angle looking back from the hallway:
Conference Room BEFORE:
Nothing says let’s have a meeting like fluorescent lighting and an interesting shade of brown walls. Haha!
Fresh paint, lighting and stained concrete flooring gave this conference room an entirely new feel!
I wouldn’t mind meeting in here now 🙂
Not pictured were 7 individual offices, 2 bathrooms and a space with more cubicle style work areas. I don’t have photos of everything to share, but I thought I would share the highlights!
Another fun office project in the books. Working on another one as I type this. Cant wait to share!
