Design and Layout Ideas
There are many things to consider when carrying out a workplace refurbishment. Most importantly you need to accommodate your workforce, your clients and make a fantastic impression on visitors. To help you create that all important wow factor with your business refurbishment, we can offer sound advice on the overall design and layout of your property. There are a number of techniques that offer an affordable but very effective finish to any office space, waiting area, reception or retail outlet, while enhancing your company branding.
Most offices require some sort of office partitioning and there are numerous options available – glazed, partially glazed, solid walls, moving walls, storage walls and desk partitions. The options are endless, so if you feel overwhelmed by the choice we can offer practical advice on which products will suit your available space and business requirements.
Suspended ceilings are the best way to hide unsightly pipework, wiring and ductwork, while offering easy access for essential maintenance of lighting and air conditioning units. Truly bespoke, the suspended ceiling can be fitted to any surface area, including curved walls and sloping ceilings.
Simple carpet tiles can make a significant difference. Using bright coloured tiles that match colours within your logo can be laid to create a boarder around a board room with a large table in the middle, or in a pattern across a reception area. They can be used to recreate your logo in an entrance, or to separate specific areas within an office or waiting area. Floor tiles are often overlooked as a cheap and practical office flooring solution, but used the right way, they can transform an office space.
Lighting can have multiple effects on your working environment, from changing the overall look to improving productivity among the work force. Traditional fluoritube lighting incorporated into a suspended ceiling can be suppressing, but by changing them to the LED equivalent creates a natural light, which not only improves the general look of the space, but also enhances the brain’s efficiency. While the initial outlay is more expensive, the energy savings instantly make a difference to your energy bills.
Lighting combined with a floating ceiling in any shape can provide an opulent and contemporary appearance to a room. Using colour changing or simple white LED strips between the levels give depth to a large room. This combination of carpentry and lighting is a very inexpensive solution for a board room, reception or waiting room.
Wall art is available in many forms. No longer is it a matter of putting a pretty picture up, you can fill a complete wall with a mural or photography. Be it a small wall in an entrance or stairwell, or a large wall spanning a reception or office, this is a tremendous way of bringing vibrancy and interest to a work area. The mural is placed and pasted just like wallpaper, but should be fitted by a professional for precision. You can choose from a selection of pre-designed artwork, or use a high quality photograph of your own.
Forget the traditional whiteboard, walls covered with a special write-on vinyl are a must for any modern and creative school, boardroom or office. Available with a magnetic surface, the vinyl wall can be written on and projected onto. This practical communication tool looks fantastic and comes in a variety of colours with the added option of lines or grid marks.
The use of textured wall coverings bring a truly luxurious finish to a room. There are numerous textures of wall coverings available – vinyl backed sparkles, 3D wave effects, blocks, woven fabric and leather. There are a wide range of moulded MDF panels available with a high gloss, matt or wooden finish. These opulent wall coverings are ideal for high-end brands, hotels, reception areas, waiting rooms and retail outlets. There are a wide range of textured wall covering to meet varying budgets
