End-of-financial-year: Quick office design buys to help you stay to budget
It’s fast approaching EOFY, and with it comes the usual scurry from business operations teams to balance the books against budget forecasts.
If you’ve suddenly discovered a little extra in your office kitty, but need to spend before June 30, here are some quick things you can do to improve your workspace without rescinding your budget.
Upgrade your greenery
From creating cleaner office air, to brightening up any workspace, office plants play a vital role in promoting employee wellbeing and happiness.

Add a statement, custom-made piece
This may be the one chance you get to order that custom couch or new artwork that is going to wow visiting clients and inspire your employees. Think some bespoke lighting or reception furnishing could be the statement piece your office would love? A1 Office has an on-site joinery, with expert craftsmen able to bring any office dream to reality.
Up your sustainability game with a compact composting bin or new energy-efficient products
Food waste makes great fertilizer. Check out The Urban Composter for a range of stylish solutions suitable for any workspace kitchen.

Take it to a vote
The best idea may be to take your remaining budget to the staff, and take an informal vote. Set clear parameters, for example let staff know if the spend needs to be 100% sustainable to help you meet your organisational goals.
