In the office design and fit-out industry, one piece of advice is the same across the board: you need to have an established budget before you begin the project.
Setting a budget allows you the opportunity to calculate a realistic return-on-investment whilst acting as a method to financially measure what success looks like for your company. It also allows you to prioritise your budget needs and most important goals. A clear budget allows you to see clearly from the outside areas where potential savings can be made.
