You may look out on your office and think about many things: how efficiently everyone is working, how effective your current equipment is, or even whether the layout is beneficial for your type of business. But have you considered how the office’s walls may contribute to your business’ atmosphere?
The design and color scheme of your walls can have a big impact on how clients and employees perceive your company. Below, we provide several custom wall covering ideas to help you spruce up your office and breathe new life into your business.
Slats and Textured Features
Our physical environment is central to how we feel during the day, but textured wall coverings can do more than improve our mood. Consider textured surfaces, like faux wooden slats or cobblestone, as an alternative to matte or glossy paint.
Not only will texture make the space feel less sterile, but it can also contribute to noise reduction. That’s because sound reverberates off of smooth surfaces. Textured surfaces, by contrast, absorb sound and reduce echoes. You can also use texture to better control light. It eliminates glare and reduces brightness.
Custom Wall Coverings
If you don’t like the look of textured surfaces, you can choose a custom design instead. How would your office look when decorated in your company’s brand colors or logo? Can you use patterns to maintain visual interest and appeal?
Make creative use of wall coverings so that they can serve double duty. For example, a restaurant may use custom wall coverings to display its menu. Can you work pertinent information into your wall coverings so that they’re just as useful as they are appealing?
Gallery Walls and Noise Cancellation
You don’t have to replace your walls to renovate your space. Consider how gallery walls – walls that feature framed photos and artwork – can add a sense of comfort. You could even opt for wall coverings that function as acoustic art.
Acoustic art panels take textured wall covers one step further. They are made from specific materials designed to dampen sound but combine their sound-dampening technology with art. Strategic placement of artwork can not only improve your office’s aesthetic appeal but also cut down on unwanted noise. An expert can help you to determine the appropriate thickness and size for your acoustic art so that it effectively cancels noise in your space.
Wainscotting and Adaptable Surfaces
Depending on the type of business that you run, you may find that scuffs, scrapes, and normal wear and tear have stolen the luster from your walls. Considering wainscotting as a solution.
Wainscotting is a panel applied to the bottom half of a wall. Cover the top half of your wall with a custom wall covering, then apply the wainscotting along the bottom. Not only can this create an elegant look, but it also helps protect your surfaces.
Panel Molding for Visual Interest
Panel molding is another worthwhile choice. It can be applied to a wall to create the look of raised edges, boxes and other patterns that extend from floor to ceiling. Panel molding creates a refined, sophisticated look but requires more work to install.
