Office before and after

Office before and after

A few months ago (in the month of February of this year exactly), a client contacted our company with the question if we would be interested in the redo of their business offices. Although our company is well-known for the more classical interior design, I also love contemporary design. And definitely for business offices!

After discussing with the client about all their needs, my husband and I started to think about the lay-out of the office rooms, the required materials, furniture, lighting,..and finally made a proposal! Our client was enchanted and gave us green light to go on with this project.

The redo had to be finished at the end of July!

I will first show you some “before” pictures of the office rooms. Actually there were 3 existing office rooms of which our client wanted us to create only 2 spaces now.

Lay outNew lay-out of the office.

Sorry for the quality of the pictures! I am not a professional photographer!


Office 1





Office 2




Office 3



Powder room



42 Wenge wood for the office cabinets and desks.

43Epoxy flooring (for more information click here).

52Contemporary electric fire.

11Wenge colored wooden blinds


Desk lighting armature.

46Ceiling light.

44Floor lamp.

53Desk chair.

48Ghost chair.

49Phantom chair.

We have chosen for the white phantom chairs but they couldn’t be delivered on time. I hope they will arrive next week! We will place them at the office desks.

47Sitting aera chair.

54This is the table (not arrived yet) chosen with a white top for the sitting area.

50Door handle.

51Basin sink for the powder room.


This is the almost finished project.

Of the earlier office 1 and 2 we created only one office room. I mention it here as Office 1.

Office 1


In front of the former metal structure we placed a white painted wall with a large window.

16 View through this large window.


Wenge cabinets and desk, made to measure at the working places of our company.


Sitting area with the electric fire.

12 Notice the industrial look of the epoxy flooring.

3 Wenge wall tablet under the large window.

23 The led lighting creates a wonderful effect.


Flowers…the final touch!


At the backside of the wall where is placed the electric fire, we created a kitchen area,…

13… and used the wenge wood for the tablets.

Office 2


A repeat of the wenge furniture.


Final touch by my husband.

9 Again the wooden blinds as window treatment.

Powder room


Hopefully within a few weeks I will be able to show you some professional taken pictures of this project!!

I hope you enjoyed this office redo.

    I knew after seeing the transformation you did to your brothers’ office this would be spectacular as well and I wasn’t disappointed. First let me say thank you for introducing us to the epoxy flooring I had never heard of it. I love all the clean lines and woods you brought in as well as a bit of human softness, the electric fireplace, along with the business. You and everyone else who worked with you did an amazing job. I hope your client was pleased!

    Have a fabulous Day!

    A great professional, modern feeling re-do. It's really beautiful, the epoxy flooring looks wonderful! I love where you used the ghost chair and the electric fireplace is just perfect.
    Thank you for your sweet comment yesterday, it made my day, coming from someone like you!
    Hugs, Cindy S

    Greet you & your husband must be bursting with pride? Every detail is divine, especially the wenge wood. So rich and classy just as RR should be represented. I think the epoxy flooring is terrific and perfect for a automobile dealership. Looking forward to seeing more photos. Bravo!!

    Hoi lieve Greet, wat een metamorfose, het ziet er werkelijk prachtig uit. Heel stijlvol met het wengé en de stoelen van Philippe Starck vind ik helemaal geweldig staan.
    Fijne avond.

    Je zou er overuren gaan maken in zo'n heerlijk kantoor. Geweldig mooi. Ik mag ook vaak adviezen geven bij vriendinnen e.d. en sta verbaasd dat ze m'n advies dan ook graag opvolgen. Nog leuker als je de volgende keer daar komt en het is allemaal geworden zoals jij het had gezegd en dat ze er zo blij mee zijn.

    Was gisteren nog in Brasschaat en Antwerpen, helaas geen camera bij me. Zo mooi bij jullie!

    Hartelijke groet,

    How amazing! I love the warmth, the modernity, the space, everything. I personally have to have a clean space to work in — so that my mind is as clutter-free as my space is.

    Well done!

    Wow, that is amazing! Can I just say that the powder room is probably the biggest transformation. That previous tile was….dated?…To say the least!

    Great renovation photos, love the before and after shots. Great difference on the offices, and the sitting area looks AMAZING. Really liked the white floor lamp there and the fireplace. The industrial flooring also looks great for an office space. Thanks for sharing 🙂
