People in the door industry know that different styles serve different purposes. This is true of offices as well as homes. While a customer who is renovating their office might not be all that enthusiastic about how a door might fit their vision of a workplace, this is something you should encourage them to keep in mind. After all, making the wrong selection can create a negative working atmosphere, ruin the office’s aesthetic and even hinder productivity.
So what things should businesses refurbishing their office keep in mind? Leader Doors explains.
A workplace, above everything else, needs to be practical. All the style in the world is meaningless if your office doesn’t allow employees to easily get their work done. This should be something retailers inform their customers of if they are looking to purchase doors for a workplace.
For example, some workplaces are considerably louder than others – particularly ones that focus on manual labour such as a car garage. Let’s say you have some members of staff that work in accounting, human resources or sales at a business like this. You will want to separate these departments from noisy areas with a good soundproof door.
This will ensure they can get on with their work without unnecessary distractions and annoyances.
Doors are a regularly overlooked aspect of interior design. They may not exactly change the aesthetic of a room but they can help to complete its style. Therefore, offices should be careful to choose a door that has the right kind of aesthetic.
In a young, millennial workplace this might, for instance, involve glass doors for meeting rooms that give the office an inviting friendliness. This is also recommended for workplaces that tend to welcome clients as transparency communicates friendliness, welcoming them in rather than keeping them out.
Meanwhile, a more formal environment where directors require privacy from the rest of the workforce may, instead, consider a more traditional plywood flush door.
Doors serve many fundamental purposes – privacy and warmth, for instance – but one of the main reasons people buy a door in the first place is security.
Most offices will require a significant amount of security in order to prevent valuable items from being stolen and ensure important documents do not go missing. It is therefore important, as a business owner, to select doors that meet this purpose.
This may be achieved by purchasing heavy, windowless doors for certain rooms (i.e. the stock cupboard) or by investing in secure, anti-snap locks for your main entry that protect your office from burglary.
