From Drab to Fab
Let’s face it, most office spaces are not known for their innovative art or design. In fact, they are usually drab, drab, drab. Beige walls and cubes, no colour, florescent lighting, not exactly inspiring.
It doesn’t have to be that way! Don’t banish your office space to the legions of the uninterested and uninspired.
A few well placed pieces of wall art, a hammer and a some picture hangers are all you need to take your office space from dull and boring, to interesting with a bit of pop.
Picking the Right Wall Art for You
Now before you go out and purchase just any old art that you come across, take a moment and figure out what works best for your space.
Take account of both your wall space, and also the kind of furniture and decor in your office.
You want to make sure that you are going to be picking wall art that fits in with the space, decor and personality of your office.
Do you have a traditional floor plan with few windows? Then a light and bright canvas is going to go a long way.
Do you have a very chic and modern space, featuring lots of leather furniture and clean lines? Well, then you might consider a piece of wall art that is quite abstract and interesting.
Determining what is going to really pop in your space is the most important step you can take.
Consider Size and Cost
Next, set yourself a budget. Quality art comes at a price, but realise that you will have this piece for quite a long time, and the right wall art will transform the office. Employees will be more productive. Visitors will be impressed. Sales will be increased, brilliant!
With the budget set, determine how you are going to fill the space. Large blank walls require either a large canvas, or a series of canvas in a row to break up the space. This is the perfect place to make a statement, so have fun with it!
Now, the fun part! This is where you can let your imagination and inspiration run wild.
Take your decorating seriously, picking wall art that is going to be bold, exciting and office appropriate. Something abstract is always a great choice, not only will it provide a lot of colour, but it will also be visually pleasing.
Great art also provides your office with some personality.
A bit of a conversation piece is something that can interest clients and customers as they walk in the door. Why not grab their attention right off the bat?
