6 Creative Office Partition & Divider Ideas

While many people still head to the office everyday, the offices they head to have undergone something of a revolution in recent years. In the past, offices were largely composed of small offices or rows of cubicles that kept employees separated. In today’s age of collaboration and innovations, many offices have moved away from keeping employees separated and moved towards the open office concept.

Open offices are typically made up of work stations positioned throughout the space without walls or cubicles. But even though this type of office design encourages collaboration and creativity, it’s not without its downsides. In a large open space, noise and distractions can impact performance and the ability for quiet contemplation. That’s where office partitions and dividers come in.

Office partitions and dividers allow companies to integrate defined work spaces, conference areas, and meeting rooms throughout the larger space without separating them completely using a variety of materials and partition styles. To achieve this, VIVA Railings offers our MetalSpaces line of products that allow you to bring your office separator ideas to life. Let’s take a look at a few ways to use office dividers and see how MetalSpace can help you achieve your vision.

1. Add Texture and Dimension

Integrating texture in office divider ideas can add dimension and character to the office space. You can also get creative with the configuration and incorporate curves rather than stick to straight lines.

2. Maintain an Open Feel

To maintain an open feel while still providing some sense of privacy or separate work spaces, partitions can only go halfway to the ceiling. This allows people to feel like they are part of the larger whole while creating separate spaces based on departments or tasks.

3. Integrate Glass

Glass partitions are a mainstay of open office designs. This room divider idea of the office creates sound privacy while maintaining a connection with the larger office space. In many cases, glass can be frosted or colored to create visual privacy as well.

4. Design a Creative Configuration

An open office doesn’t have to be a big square box. Building smaller rooms that can be used as conference or meeting rooms can create smaller nooks and other areas where you can integrate desks and workspaces that seem more private but aren’t totally cut off from the rest of the room.

5. Integrate Color

Low partitions give people a sense of having their own space without cutting them off from the larger office. To create individualization and avoid looking over a sea of sameness, using color can help distinguish one workspace from another and further brand identity and design goals.

6. Keep Glass in Play

The glass partition became a ubiquitous precaution during the COVID-19 pandemic. As COVID restrictions were lifted, many of the glass partitions were removed. But people still get colds and don’t want to spread their germs, so even though we may not see them at the grocery store or between restaurant booths, they can still work well as office partitions that create a sense of separation and protection from germs without obstructing the line of sight.
