"refurnish" or "redecorate" When I want to describe, our office has been renewed all the furniture,the wall paper, and the window, shall I use "refurnish" or "redecorate" or "redo" our office?

I would say 'refurbish'. I didn't spell that wrong, it is 'refurbish'. Refurnish will be to put new furniture inside. Redecorate will be to paint or tile or so on. Refurbish is to freshen up, make like new. You might also use 'renovate',

Redecorate means that you have given the office a brand new appearance. Refurnish means that you have put new furniture in, but everything else remains the same.
