Modern offices are filled with glass walls, open spaces, and natural light. This has thrown up some challenges when spending most of your day in the office trying to get some work done.
Open spaces can be very loud when filled with busy people on the phone and having meetings. No dividing walls also allow you to know the ins and outs of your colleague’s life as they discuss every excruciating detail of their weekend to the person next to them.
Glass walls are a great way to allow natural light to flow throughout the entire office space, and to see what holiday Jim is Googleing five offices down the hall when he should be working.
We often see boardrooms and meeting rooms with so much glass that the people having the meeting look like they are in a fish tank, on display for everyone to see.
We are so quick to get comfortable with the office space we spend so much time in, we don’t recognise its shortcomings. Imagine how your clients feel when trying to have a private meeting with their sensitive information show on a large screen or whiteboard, in a room with glass walls for any passerby to see.
Can you have your cake and eat it too?
Most of the time I would say no, but in this case YES.
Frosted vinyl applied to glass offers privacy without taking away the natural light and the modern space feel we all love. It allows the glass to remain translucent without being transparent. Frosted glass allows you to see that someone is in the room because you can see a hazy silhouette but you can’t see detail.
You can cover entire glass walls for maximum privacy or sections depending on your needs. When used right, frosted glass can cover up office clutter and areas you might not want to see like the back of computers and desks with messy cords.
The frost can be contour cut to any shape, have graphics or wording cut out revealing clear sections or digitally printed on allowing you to brand your office anyway you like. Large printed images on frost are a great way to make a bland and boring office space interesting, giving that WOW effect to clients when coming for a meeting.
