One of the best ways to create an open, focused, and collaborative corporate office space is by applying glass finishes. These finishes may come in the form of glass panels and partitions, and are often aided in function and appearance by window film.

 

How do you plan to utilize the entire office space?

Most office spaces have more than one specific area in use. Choose the best window film by considering how these different areas are used. For example, a conference room that  frequently hosts sensitive meetings will require a window film with a higher opacity to obstruct or completely prevent sight into the room.

Commonly for open areas where employees and guests come together, a combination of clear and frosted glass finishes are utilized. The latter is common in multi-unit buildings. 

 

How much flexibility do you need?

If you’re planning to set up a training room in your office for example, it’s beneficial to make the space flexible. A flexible training area provides easier re-purposing for different training needs.  

In most cases these training areas utilize glass partitions and dividing panels. Window film assists the training process by limiting visibility through these dividers, panels and partitions, reducing distractions during training. With Designed Film, you’ll be able achieve this in a decorative fashion, improving the look of your training room.

 

Where are Your Private or Public Spaces?

It’s common for healthcare and medical offices to feature examination and waiting areas. If your space falls into this category, consider choosing glass finishes that create visual separation between the two spaces. If you want to prevent visitors or other unauthorized personnel from seeing what’s happening on the other side, consider installing one of our medical films, specifically designed for the healthcare industry.

 

What is the Size of Your Corporate Office?

Choosing suitable glass finishes also involves consideration of the size of your area. If you want a space like a pantry or lounge to have a more intimate and smaller feel, selecting an opaque finish will accomplish this. For small areas such as an executive’s office that need to look larger, a combination of clear glass and partially opaque films are an excellent choice.

 

Is an Area Close to Exterior Windows?

Before choosing a finish for your corporate office glass partitions, it is important to consider how close an area is to exterior windows. The more natural light you allow to flow through the office, the healthier it is for employees and visitors alike. Natural light is a quick and effective mood booster, and as we all know, a great source of Vitamin D! In addition to letting more natural light in, your office won’t need to consume as much electricity as before. Great for the environment, and the electricity bill.
