3 Ways to Revamp the Office by Improving Workspace Eyesores

by Jayme Nelson

The saying, “function over form,” can be applied to many things, but why settle when it comes to your work space? Employees spend the majority of their waking hours within the buildings and offices where they work. With the ability to print on everything from floor tiles to fabrics to glass, and to apply vinyl to almost any surface, FASTSIGNS knows a few things about transforming “eye-sores.” Let’s take a look at a few ways that you can improve the look of any workspace.

End Boring and Bland

Is a construction or leasing trailer a necessary component in your business? Wrap your trailer with vinyl graphics that promote the specific project underway. These graphics can be changed from site to site and help build your brand awareness and advertise your company’s services.

Change Less than Attractive

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but some building fixtures, while necessary, are just downright ugly. From elevators in a hospital or hotel to metal columns and air conditioner vents in your employee’s work space, fixed equipment and structural building installations can be covered with decals or other graphics to improve the look of the area.

Work in a space where the equipment and fixtures shouldn’t be touched with graphics? Consider applying floor graphics and wall decor to provide visual balance.

Improve Old or Outdated

If your business or organization has been in the same building for a while, your surroundings and surfaces may feel a little outdated. Just because something is old, it doesn’t mean it should be thrown out, and budgets don’t always leave room for new purchases. Break room tables can have new life with graphics that turn them into game boards. Dated conference room tables are the perfect canvas for your branding and the wrap can help cover wear and tear. Old refrigerators, outdated flooring and even faded lockers can all receive a little brand-friendly “TLC” with the right graphics.

While function is priority when it comes to getting the job done, it doesn’t have to always win out over form. The possibilities are almost endless when you use sign and graphic applications to have your office “eyesores” transformed into new views.
