My secretary was talking to a coworker noting how our office looked like it was a rundown leftover from the 1980s. She turned and saw me and blushed. I told her that I agreed with her, but I never had gotten around to doing anything about it. So, I put her in charge of contacting a company that does office refurb in Bath for a new fit out of our office space. I told her to keep the traditional style that makes a positive statement about our company, but to modernize it so we look progressive and attractive to our clients.
She did a wonderful job of matching colors and textures without making our offices either too modern or too retro. She reached a fine balance of making our offices look great to our new as well as old clients. My office looks great and is more functional than it ever was. I had made some changes when I took over the business from my father, but I never made any major changes. This time we changed things down to the bare walls. I really enjoy my new office with its automated window shades and LED lighting. I like the functionality of the furniture too. My desk is suited both to working at a computer or working with the large sheets of paper typical to our business.
My new chair is the most comfortable chair I have ever sat on. I like it better than my recliner I have at home. The memory foam seat is so comfortable. No pressure points, and that means no sciatica problems for me from working long hours at my desk. We were sure as a company to give my secretary a nice bonus for the work she did in getting us an office refurb in Bath where are headquarters are located.
