Commercial Interior Design: Decorating for Yourself vs. Decorating for Clients


When you’re designing the interiors for your new office space or updating the interiors of an old one, it’s important to think about what type of company image you want to present to your clients. And the company image also largely depends on the type of clientele you have. For example, if your clientele is young and hip, they will also expect to be greeted with a young and hip ambiance.

Decorating for Clients

Are you decorating your offices for your employees or for your clients? There are some businesses where clients actually come to the offices, in which case the offices have to be decorated in a way that would make a good impression on them.

Decorating for Employees

In certain businesses, there is no face-to-face interaction with clients, and the offices are manned only by employees. In that case, you’ll have to consider the comfort and productivity of your employees when you design your interiors.

Considering Personal Taste

If you’re the owner of a certain business, you’ll probably want your personal taste to be reflected in some way in your interiors. You might also want to get some input from your employees about how they would like to see the offices decorated.

Expressing Honesty/Sincerity

Let’s say that you want to attract a young, hip clientele, but you’re not particularly young and hip yourself. In that case, it wouldn’t be entirely honest or sincere on your part to decorate the offices in a young, hip way. And most likely, your clients will be able to tell that you’re not being sincere.

Reaching a Compromise

It’s better to decorate your offices to your taste with a few elements that your clients will be able to relate to as well. This way, you’ll be striking a compromise which will make you, your employees, and your clients comfortable in that space.
