You have done it! Your start up has moved from an incubator or your parent's basement to a real professional office. You guys are now the real deal! Is that not amazing? I am so proud of you and all of your accomplishments. Readers of this blog know that I like to talk about subjects related to start up culture, and what can be done to improve your life while you do not have money. Today however, I am switching it up slightly and talkign about when you have more funds, and want to do something more cosmetic with your time. There are many important considerations that have to be had when choosing to finsih off your new office space, and one of those is what the painted walls are going to look like in your office!
People who read me often know that I will often go on long rants about certain subjects. You are probabally thinking "Eddy, I dont know how you are going to talk to me about paint" but hear me out. I think that one of the most important things that an office manager can do is make sure that the office conveys many different things: calmness, a sense of energy, and most importantly a feeling of being at home. This is really tough to do in an office that usually has big walls that fill up a lot of space, and those emotions that I just described have all different sorts of color palettes associated with them.
I think that this video really shows what is possible with color. So yeah, I gotta say, if you want the office to be a happier place overall, you have got to make sure that you hire a place that has professionals and will consult with you on what colors you should use. I have a lot of readers in Canada, who have businesses that are in and around the GTA region.
