How to Overhaul Your Office Design without Breaking the Bank

Interior design trends change quickly with multiple shifts in opinion of what is “in” and what looks good. The interior and exterior environmental design can easily be overdone or forgotten altogether – which is not good. It can be difficult and stressful to manage a design change, not to mention expensive! If you are stuck wondering how to overhaul the environmental design without breaking the bank, here are some ideas on how to achieve a new “look” with innovative vinyl films.

Architectural Finishes for Flat Surfaces

Desks, walls, cabinets, appliances, fixtures, shelving, and even doors are great flat surfaces for architectural finishes. These films come in many different varieties, colors, and textures to ensure that your project matches or compliments the environmental design. Adhesive architectural finishes such as 3M Di-noc, can allow for some costs to be saved by avoiding the expense of high-end materials. By replicating the “look” of the luxury materials and finishes, you can utilize budget-friendly materials.

Glass Window Treatments for Privacy & Ambiance

Glass windows or floor to ceiling glass panels are a modern way to divide up an interior space yet keep some openness to the environment. While glass windows add ambiance to the space, sometimes glass conference rooms can feel a little too open and the occupants might feel like fish in a fishbowl. Glass window treatments like frosted vinyl film are excellent (cost-friendly) options to achieve an authentic etched glass “look”.

Acrylic Lobby Signs to Reinforce Brand

Interior environments are perfect opportunities to show off your brand if it is complimentary and does not create too much clutter for visitors to navigate through. Lobby areas and waiting areas are great locations for lobby signs to reinforce your brand and compliments the interior design. Acrylic plastic is a budget-friendly alternative to glass panels which are utilized for lobby signs and reception area signs.
