Fitting out a large office includes a lot of thought. Even small details can make a difference when you consider that a lot of people will be spending a lot of time in this environment. Everything from your choice of furniture to the color of the paint on the walls makes a difference.

Office partitioning can simply be overlooked but it is an important part of your office layout, this is used between cubicles and provides workers with privacy and their own personal space. Partitioning not only contributes to the productivity of staff it has a big effect on the professional appearance of the office.

There are some office partition options, with a wide variety of sizes, styles, shapes and materials available, anything really from cloth to glass or wood. Try and select a material than fits with the look and feel of your office. If you want to maximize the flow of natural light, then glass partitions would be a good idea, whereas if you plan on changing the layout of your office and moving your partitions fairly regularly, then a more durable material like wood or plasterboard may be beneficial. Think about your future needs, if expansion is on the cards you will need something mobile. I have even seen wheeled partitions, which are about as mobile as it comes! The height of your partitions is also an important decision. You will tend to have less choice when it comes to height than things like color or material. In an office environment, half height partitions are the most popular. They offer workers a private working space when seated but they don't fully exclude them from the office floor area. This open communication is helpful to the atmosphere of your office. If you do require a quieter working area, away from the hustle and bustle of the office floor, then a full height partition will be best. They reach from floor to ceiling, acting as a temporary wall rather than a screen. Good if you want to give a staff member their private office. Accordion partitioning in MF is the other common option. They look like a full height partition but fold out easily for access, a mobile option which also provides all the privacy of full height partitioning.

This isn't always an easy decision, so it can pay off to consult an expert. MF Office designers can work with you to create the most practical working environment within your budget. This is the most important thing, creating a comfortable working area that maximizes functionality, while also looking good!
