4 WAYS GLASS CAN PERK UP YOUR HOME OFFICE
If you’ve been working remotely since 2020 your home office might be due for a touch up. Of course there’s the ever present threat of clutter, so cleaning and organizing is the best place to start. Adding one thoughtful element to your cleaned and organized workspace can give it a fresh and more inviting vibe, and custom glass is one of the best tools for doing just this.
1. Add a glass whiteboard.
Replace a lesser markerboard with one made of white back painted glass to elevate the tone of your home office. A sheet of white glass looks like a minimalist wall hanging when not in use, but you can write on it with normal dry erase markers and easily wipe it blank with no ghosting. A glass whiteboard brings a high end feel AND provides a convenient surface on which to write schedules, reminders, lists, and so forth.
2. Make your space more private.
Are you still trying to stake a claim for your home office amid the clutter of the living room or dining room? If so, putting in glass partition walls can be a game changer. Create your own space to boost productivity, lower stress, and help you stay focused. Ordering custom glass partition walls bypasses the hassle and mess of having walls framed, fitted with drywall, mudded, sanded, and painted. Also, you can tweak the walls to your needs and preferences:
frameless or framed design
glass type – clear, pattened, acid-etched (frosted)
entrance style – rolling door, swinging door, or open entry
Keep a free-flowing ambiance with clear glass or remove distractions with privacy glass; go with “barely there” frameless glass dividers or jump on the glass and black metal trend; totally divide the space with glass partition walls or put up a simple screen; the choice is yours.
3. Reinvent your home office desk top.
Another easy fix is to update rather than replace a desk you are tired of. Adding a sheet of glass to its top gives you a refreshed surface without the hassle of totally changing out desks. A glass top can be clear, frosted, patterned, tinted, or back painted depending on the look you are going for. You can personalize it further by selecting a polished, beveled, or pencil edge. Finally, you can choose to have it cut to the same size as the original desk top or a bit larger.
4. Create surfaces for display and storage.
The nice thing about glass shelves is that they’re perfect for storing office supplies or for creating displays and vignettes that make the room more pleasant to be in. Of course, you can also do both on the same set of shelves by tastefully storing work materials on some sections and accent items on other areas. Tailor the shelves to your design goals by choosing their:
glass type – clear, acid-etched, patterned
brackets, hanging system, or other supports
