If you have been considering an office overhaul, now is the time to gain inspiration, plan and prepare. With your employees likely working from home for the foreseeable future, it is worth thinking about the pros and cons of your office’s current design, what could be improved for the benefit of staff, clients and the working environment, and the type of design that will stand you in good stead for years to come.
Adding glass elements is always a good way to open up a commercial space. An office flooded with natural light, creating a spacious and airy feel, undoubtedly has a positive impact and can improve employees’ moods and motivation.
Here are five ways you can use glass to enhance your space.
Showcase brand identity with decorative glass.
If your space is customer-facing, it is important to give a good impression of your company, and even if not, using your logo and brand colours in the office injects some personality. You could have a decorative wall, a coloured staircase or your logo on glass screens for example - there are lots of ways to use decorative glass, whether you want to make a statement or are looking for something subtle.
Use glass partitions for meeting rooms or breakout areas.
To best amplify light in your office, consider adding frameless glass partitioning. This allows for a more even distribution of light due to its smooth, translucent glass sheets, and privacy can still be ensured by choosing translucent or opaque glass. Glass partitions are as practical as they are visually appealing, being low-maintenance and robust.
Impress with a glass canopy.
If you have your own office building, an external glass canopy can provide an impressive entrance for staff and clients. It enables light to flow through your entire reception area or atrium, and is both attractive and durable. Canopies are made with toughened glass and can be designed in a variety of ways to suit your building and vision.
Take your staircase to the next level.
Turn functional elements of your workspace into design features. Staircases made of either transparent or frosted glass give a contemporary upgrade to your space, while being hard-wearing and secure. You could even opt for a minimalist floating glass staircase for maximum impact.
Bring in balustrades for safety and style.
Toughened glass balustrades can be used to ensure safety around stairs and platforms, create a sense of space and continue the seamless look of your newly-light and airy workplace.
