I think, and this is just shooting from the lip, that "remodeling" is a term 
meant to mean physical changes, as in remodeling a house, where walls are 
moved, floors ripped up, dormers added or subtracted, etc. A remodeled office 
would mean cubicles shifted around, offices expanded or contracted, etc. 
Redecorating is what you do when you get new curtains, carpets or furniture. I 
tried to persuade Esteemed Wife that the new TV was part of a living room 
redecorating scheme, but we've been married too long. Sigh. <g>
