Dividers and Partitions and Cubicles, Oh My!

While it seems like businesses everywhere are moving toward open plans, it can be daunting to morph a wide-open space into a productive office. Attempting to turn blank space into an actual office is often overwhelming. Because every office has unique goals, there’s a lot to take into consideration; you probably have plenty of questions. Reputable contract office furniture companies, like National Project Group, offer office planning and project management services that will help you optimize your office space.

Lots of Choices

Dividers, partitions, and cubicles may all sound alike, but they each have distinct qualities that you should familiarize yourself with before making important decisions about your business-space plans.

Partitions are wall panels that are modular and that can be joined together to form cubicles. Partitions can also stand alone as room dividers, and they are usually constructed with metal frames and fabric-like coverings that allow cubicle dwellers to pin up their children’s photos and personal mementos. Partitions can help your employees carve out a bit of personal space within a wide-open plan.

Cubicles, on the other hand, are employee spaces that are created with partitions. Cubicles can be created in a variety of sizes and shapes and can allow you the flexibility to provide your employees with the workspaces they need. Conversely, cubicles can be difficult to envision when you’re looking at a blank office space. National Project Group’s planning services are here to help.

Room dividers are standalone panels that provide a visual barrier between office workstations, meeting areas, break-room spaces, or anywhere. These panels are usually both lightweight and stylish. They’re easy to move in accommodation of your needs, but they can also provide a pop of style.

Desktop dividers are small panels that are used between workstations to provide privacy in a truly open plan. These dividers can be tricky because most are made to be used within a specific office furniture collection; very few are one-size-fits-all.

Cubicle doors are panels that are designed to be pulled in front of a cubicle when an employee needs additional privacy. Some styles are universal, but others are panel-system specific. Carefully consider your needs before investing.
