KC Restoration Culture Series – each month we will highlight a different company value. Since Thanksgiving is in November, we selected the value of Gratitude to discuss this month.
Gratitude is an emotion, something that gives you a feeling of happiness. Happiness can increase your life span, intelligence, creativity, energy and allow you to be more effective. There are many ways to express gratitude – internally (making a list of things you are grateful for), externally (send a card/text/note your gratitude to someone), or expressing gratitude to everyday things (i.e.: I’m thankful for my heater).
At KC Restoration, our vision of gratitude is:
Gratitude: Choose to be grateful and express gratitude.
KC Restoration demonstrates gratitude in many different ways:
We are so grateful you took the time to read about Gratitude. We hope you find ways to spread gratitude to others.
Ways to Increase Gratitude in Your Life
Technology has made it easier to track your happiness and gratitude. Here are a few apps that can help you track your Gratitude/Happiness:
Many buildings contain certain wood furniture pieces that provide appeal and functionality. Wood furniture, doors and walls provide beautiful aesthetics for commercial and retail facilities, but over time wood can fade, get scratched or look worn and unappealing. Property managers might think it’s time to look for something new there are options. Furniture repair and restoration could be just the alternative property managers are looking for.
Same Furniture, New Style
Even if your furniture is getting a little older, that is no reason why it can’t still last you for years to come. Getting your older furniture professionally restored can help it look fresh and new again. Whether you are looking to give your older furniture a complete makeover to suit your evolving tastes, or you simply want it restored to its original glory to help enhance the look and feel of your facility, furniture restoration can be your answer. Do you have a wooden chair or table that you love, but the color doesn’t quite match the rest of the wooden decor? Having your wooden furniture refinished by a professional specialist can give it just the look you want. Having your older furniture repaired and restored can give it a complete face-lift while still preserving the aspects that made it appealing in the first place.
Less Expensive Than Buying New
Many property managers know the prospect of buying new furniture can be daunting at the best of times, and downright grueling at the worst. With furniture restoration, however, even if the piece you need restored is large, it will still be less than the cost of having to replace it with something new. Opting for restoration instead of buying new can leave you with more money in your budget. This can give you the advantage of being able to create an entirely different style in your building in a cost-effective manner.
Even though it may not seem like it, by restoring and refinishing your existing furniture instead of buying new, you are actually helping to do your part in protecting the environment. Scientific data shows that restoring and refinishing your existing furniture can drastically reduce your carbon footprint. It is estimated that the process of making new furniture releases over 1000 times more carbon dioxide into the atmosphere than the process of restoring or refinishing your existing furniture. By restoring your existing furniture, you could be helping to do your part in protecting our environment.
