Here at OBEX, we talk a lot about the pros and cons of cubicles vs. open workstations. But these two options do have one thing in common. There are many days when your employees will wish they were elsewhere. The nice thing about cubicle panels is that they make it easier to “get away” and imagine being on a beautiful tropical beach. You can create whatever view you prefer rather than having to stare at coworkers all day. Here are 3 ways to add a window into the world where employees would like to be if they weren’t stuck in a cube.
This manufacturer provides peel and stick decals that you can install directly on the cubicle panel. Employees could select mountains, forests, beaches, hayfields, and more.
Has a worker relocated to your regional office from Manhattan?They can still enjoy the New York skyline with a cubicle window.
These wallpapers supposedly stick to most surfaces – even fabric-covered acoustic panels. But the Dream Cubicle team sends little pins in the package too just in case these giant stickers need to be tacked down. Sizes for these windows go up to 2×3 feet for a fully immersive experience.
If you want a more true-to-life tactile experience, this option’s got you covered with its real wooden window frame. Employees also get versatility built in since each frame comes with four different “views” printed on heavy duty cardstock. They can switch out the view every day if that’s what it takes to stave off ennui. The main drawback is the size. With an opening less than 12×14 in this tiny window, workers may feel like their cubicle is even smaller than before.
You know we have a solution for this too – and it’s actually available for either desk mounted panels or panel extenders. We can custom print panels to transport your employees to anywhere they’d like to go. They can gaze at lovely green grass, a pathway strewn with autumn leaves, or the crystal blue depths of a tropical ocean. Unlike wall stickers or cardstock, these panels can easily last for decades. You can install them on one side or all 3 sides of a workstation if you want to create a complete environment of calm. They are also very easy to remove if you decide to switch them out or move them to a different workstation.
