Design Factors to Consider When Choosing the Right Office Partitions

Choosing The Right Office Partitions

It feels great to work in a great looking office.  When your business has that refreshing and classy look customers are much more likely to invest in your company and employees are constantly giving their best to uphold the business name and to ensure that they will always have a spot on your team.  Good looking offices create feel-good vibes and an energetic vibe that you will never find in a messy office with poor design features.

But creating a great looking office that is perfectly functional is no simple task.  There are so many different things to consider when you are laying out that design and so many design features you can add to boost your business image.

Here are just a few of the design factors that you should keep in mind when you are shopping for the right office partitions.

Aesthetic Appeal

Most companies mainly focus on functionality when laying out their office floor plans but when you are partitioning your office you should always keep aesthetic appeal in mind.  By combining the right partitioned materials and the right layout you can create an office space that looks absolutely stunning.  Glass practitioners are especially great for boosting aesthetic appeal because glass adds a vibe of quality, transparency and gives you that open feel even though offices might be small and compact.

Acoustics or Privacy

The main reason you are installing partitions in your office is probably to create private work areas for employees and for your customers.  Dividing your office doesn’t help much if the sound carries through the office.  If privacy isn’t a factor then open partitions are great for simply laying out your office space but if you want partitions to reduce acoustics and boost privacy then glass and timber are great materials to consider.

Consider the Height

Partitions can be custom made to suit your exact need.  You can combine different materials like glass and steel partitions for a partly open office space that still conceals areas that don’t look too great like your computer’s cabling or storage areas.  You can also choose to invest in partitions that don’t reach all the way to the top or bottom of the room length so you can keep an open vibe and promote airflow.  Alternatively, you can use solid partitions that cover from ceiling to floor to reduce sound traveling.

Colour Schemes

Partitions can be painted any colour you like and even glass partitions can be decorated with bright coloured vinyl stickers or graphic works.  It is always best to make office spaces as light as possible because a lighter work environment makes it much easier for employees to feel more awake and alert.  A splash of bright colours can however also make a huge difference in the overall look of your office and can break that dull and uniform look.


You probably don’t need the strongest walls in your office spaces but you still want partitions that are strong and sturdy so they won’t easily break or shift when someone happens to push or fall against them.  At Discount Partitions, all of our partitions are secured with metal studs, including our semi-permanent or demountable partitions.  As a result, you get great strength even though and great functionality or flexibility at the same time.
