START HQ! If you follow along, you know Jenny, and I bought an office condo! We started STARTplanner out of my home office; then we leased a 1500 square foot warehouse that had one office for a year. Well, end of the year everything lined up, and we signed a contract for a 4000 square foot warehouse and a central office that encompasses 2 other offices and a big conference room. It is the perfect space for us to grow.
We closed in January, renovated and moved our offices, and we can not wait for you to see before and after below!
Here is before of the entrance. The owners had just painted the walls and put down new carpet. Which as you can see from the after we RE-painted and pulled the carpet up. We used “Super White” by Benjamin Moore to brighten up the walls and had the concrete floors polished.
Here is after of the entrance and view from the front of the building. Shiplap wall, white paint, baseboards, and polished concrete which is just the foundation.
This is the STARTgirls offices. Here is before and after.
The white desks are West Elm (but have been discontinued). We positioned these chairs in the corner which are great for team meetings because I can get all comfy! Also great for guest that comes in. The side table is from Target!
Down the hall was a kitchenette. Here is before and after!
Since this picture, we also have had the shelves installed. Cabinets are from build.com, sink/faucet/cabinet hardware all from Home Depot , light from Rejuvenation and retro fridge and microwave we found on amazon HERE.
My office is the last room on the right. Here is before.
We were originally going to go white with the entire office. I decided I wanted a darker color or I wanted the room to feel different. Jenny encouraged dark blue to match our brand and I am obsessed with this Blue Note color by Benjamin Moore!
We also have a conference room here that we have yet to furnish. It could be more offices but this space is still yet to be built out! This black wall… chalk wall!
Warehouse… this is the day we signed the contract.
Here is our new shipping station. So much more room to work and be ORGANIZED! To quickly and efficiently work.
