On November 2nd Whitney's own Design Director, Sal Graziano spoke to a group of industry professionals regarding cost effective ways to update an interior office space with longevity. The event was hosted by IFMA (International Facility Management Association) in the newly renovated Mr. David's Flooring International Ltd. in Itasca Illinois (shout out to Samantha Wenzel and the Mr. David's project team!)
Sal discussed how updating the right elements in an interior space can have a large impact on the space, without having a large impact on the budget. Incorporating energy efficient light fixtures, neutral colors, and timeless architecture and patterns can help the space hold up to evolving design trends for years. Minimal upgrades to the ceiling tile, accent lighting, flooring pattern and/or wall colors can rejuvenate an interior that otherwise may have been gutted for a fresh look. Upgrades to the lighting will not only help the look of the space, but can also provide long term energy cost savings if more efficient fixtures are used.
With over 30 years of experience in the field, Sal prides himself on staying on top of the latest industry trends. We at Whitney are extremely lucky to have such a wealth of knowledge to draw from on a daily basis.
Great job Sal!
