What to consider when undergoing a Fit Out

When taking on a large project such as the refurbishment of your pub or restaurant, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration before construction begins. Within the below article, we aim to discuss the factors that you should be considering before revamping your business space.


What do your customers want?


In cases such as the redesign of your commercial workspace, whether it be a gym or a café, it’s important to remember that the customer is always right! Making sure that you go into a refurbishment project with a strong idea of how you want the final product to look is always good, but working to gain design ideas from the customers that frequent your establishment can be a great way to accommodate your target market, helping to build a great relationship between your business and your customers.




When setting a budget for your upcoming interior fit out project, business owners should be considering what it is that they want to gain from the refurbishment, and should keep a clear image in their mind that they can reference in respect to what the final outcomes of the fit out should look like. This will help to give you an idea of the sort of budget that you can expect.

For example, updating the furniture and repainting the walls of your establishment is a cost effective, yet highly impactful way that businesses can go about attracting new customers and retaining their customer base, however, if looking at an entire interior refurbishment, a number of factors need to be taken into consideration. How long will this process take? How much money can you expect to be invested into this project? Will the refurbishment be worth it in the long run?


When was your last fit out?


Ideally, companies such as restaurants, pubs, and cafes should be looking to update their interior design on a regular basis. Visual aesthetics play a high role in the experience that your customers will have in your establishment, so if a space appears to be out-dated, your interior design could be causing your business more harm than good, severely affecting your chances of attracting new customers to generate a loyal customer base. While minor changes to keep equipment and furniture updated may help in the short-term, a major interior refurbishment could work to drastically increase the success of your establishment.


To conclude, redesigning your business’ workspace can work wonders for your success, helping to give your company a new lease of life and generate a loyal clientele.
