3 Ways to Update Your Office Without a Massive RemodelMAY 13, 2020| SpeedPro
An unhappy workforce is an unproductive workforce. One of the top ways you can influence employee happiness is with your office’s interior design and environment.
Picture two different office interiors. One is bare, without any signs, graphics or decorations around the office. The walls are painted plain white with bland cubicle walls in between workspaces. The other office is vibrant, with engaging graphics and messaging placed tastefully throughout the interior. In key locations, wall murals provide artful touches to walls, and interior glass finishes offer private between cubicles.
Which office would boost your mood as soon as you walked in? Which one would fill you with dread?
The Need for Office Decorations
You don’t have to imagine the impact of high-quality graphics and signage around your office. With 70% of employees in the U.S. not engaged at work, you’ll want to find ways to increase employee engagement in your office. While many factors go into employee disengagement and absenteeism, good workplace design is a significant factor in employees’ happiness.
Besides the positive effect of unique graphics and signage, color has been proven to influence the productivity and wellness of employees. Bland white, gray and beige office spaces can actually make employees feel depressed. Additionally, consider that art in the workplace can restore mental energy, lead to lower levels of anger and reduce stress. With wall graphics and decals being a form of art, you can use them to get the same effects.
The Cost of Remodeling
Many people think they have to do an entire remodel to improve the visual appeal of their office, but they don’t often consider the cost. On average, an office remodel costs approximately $200 per square foot.
For an office space that’s just 15 feet long by 12 feet wide, you could easily shell out more than $35,000 for a renovation. Office remodels require a significant monetary investment, and they’re also very time-intensive and can add up to days or weeks of employee downtime.
Still, there are ways to completely transform your office space without a substantial price tag. All you have to do is find the right graphics company to work with, and you’ll reap the benefits of a livelier, more productive office environment.
Here are three ways a graphics company like SpeedPro can instantly update your office space:
1. Architectural and Glass Finishes
With hundreds of striking architectural surface finishes, SpeedPro can replicate popular looks and instantly upgrade your environment. Assorted woods, metals and stones are the perfect way to transform your office into a luxurious, multi-dimensional space.
Glass features also add a modern, upscale touch to any office environment, but you can even take them up a notch with glass finishes for architectural signage. With frosted vinyl, you can add privacy to your glass doors and windows – perfect for conference rooms and offices. We can also incorporate decorative elements in our design that make your glass look etched, sandblasted or textured for additional eye-catching character.
2. Dimensional Projects
Two-dimensional elements are effective, but adding another layer to your overall building’s atmosphere can go a long way in keeping employees engaged. Three-dimensional signage makes your company’s images and branding elements pop. And, with SpeedPro’s cutting-edge technology, industry-leading materials and expert advice, you’ll get only the highest quality, most durable pieces that will last for years.
Whether acrylic, foam core, metal or wood, we use a variety of different materials that serve myriad decorative and functional needs. We offer solutions for indoor and outdoor signage, and each branding element can serve to get employees excited about new product offerings or company-wide initiatives, or simply add an additional component to announcing your brand with renewed impact.
3. Environmental and Experiential Design Graphics
Environmental and experiential design graphics elevate your office space by creating an immersive, exciting space for employees. Whether you choose to install a wall mural depicting a lush forest for a pleasing backdrop, or you simply want to display company mission messaging, these graphics become the ideal centerpiece of your space. Environmental and experiential graphics can inspire employees and instill a sense of pride and purpose for the company where they work.
