How to Prepare your Space Before Installation

Each office space is unique. A home office may have different needs as compared to a corporate one but both should have the same preparation done beforehand. Before the installation team arrives on your front door, make the job easier for them by preparing your space and yourself. These tips will guide you on how to make the necessary plans beforehand. 

 

Clear the way 

Move small furniture, rugs, plants and other items situated along the way. Your new furniture will be moved around the space. Considering you follow the design layout as planned and have the furniture installed at a specific area, one cannot rule out that you can possibly change your mind and have the furniture installed somewhere else. Some furniture items may also require assembly and installers will most usually assemble it on the same space that it will be installed. Installers will also need to move around the space. Therefore, clearing the way will make for easier passage and movement inside. 

 

Move breakables 

You will want to move breakables such as vases, design ornaments, and other items ahead of time. You wouldn’t want them falling and breaking when knocked by the pieces of furniture coming in and perform additional clean-up. Appliances that need rewiring may have to be done by another service provider. Contact one if you have them at home or at the office. 

 

Be prepared to answer questions 

Expect the install team to ask you questions about the space they will work on. They can execute well the layout plan but they weren’t there on the planning stage. Not all installers will, but some might miss out on some minor details. So be prepared to answer their queries. You should also know information like space measurements, wall finishes, and types of carpet used, among other things. 

 

Spare room for storage 

A spare storage room is important if you have old pieces of furniture that you are still deciding on whether to keep, donate, or put in a garage sale. It is also important if you just want to have temporary storage space for old furniture items. There is also the option of warehouse space. Kansas City furniture installation warehouse space can keep your furniture or other valuables safe and secure.

Confirm some things with the installer 

If you are expecting to have your floors changed, flooring or carpet installers will ask you if you want to keep the old flooring or dispose of such and will wait for your confirmation.  

 

It is crucial that you be home during the installation. Review the design layout before you give them the go signal. Watch them closely while they work but keep a distance. You wouldn’t want to get in their way while they are working. If you do have questions, try to ask them successively rather than one at a time so they won’t always have to stop halfway while working.
