7 Ways to Use Mirrors and Glass in Your Office Space

As a business owner, it’s your job to provide a positive, pleasant work environment for your employees. A comfortable workspace is not only aesthetically pleasing, but it also has a beneficial impact on employees’ mood and overall productivity.

When you’re short on space or have a limited renovation budget, thoughtfully installing a few mirrors or glass features can work wonders to improve the general atmosphere of the office. Read on for seven ways to use glass and mirrored elements in your office to upgrade both the look and feel of your workspace.

1. Open Up a Darker Room

Sunlight has a markedly positive effect on our wellbeing, but if your office lacks abundant natural light, your employees may all be vying for that coveted desk nearest the windows. Adding mirrors into your space helps to bounce any scarce natural light around the office to brighten up even the darkest rooms in your building.

2. Give Employees More Mirror Space

Most company bathrooms only have mirrors above the sink, which makes it difficult for employees to clean up their appearance from head to toe before an important client meeting or company outing. If each of your bathrooms does not have a full-length mirror, consider putting some up to give all of your employees a place to examine their work attire from all angles for any wardrobe malfunctions.

3. Add a Pop of Color

Incorporating glass into your interior office design can be fun and modern, and you can even include a few of your brand’s colors. Painted glass walls or backsplashes are a spirited way to brighten up any dull wall space and use a bit of color psychology for a mood-boosting impact for every member of your team.

4. Spruce Up the Break Room

Most workspaces have a place for employees to take a breather during the workday, but not all are as lively or inviting as they ought to be. A few simple upgrades, like adding appealing glass doors on break room cabinets or a stylish framed mirror, can instantly make water cooler conversations a better experience for all of your employees.

5. Display Your Logo

For a sophisticated logo display option, sandblasted glass is a great way to bring more branding elements into your workspace. Add unique character to make your office a more appealing place to be for your whole team. An elegant glass sign sporting your logo instantly enhances the office’s prestige, injecting a professional element into the work environment that anyone can enjoy.

6. Replace Company Vehicles’ Glass

If your employees make use of any company vehicles, it’s crucial that each vehicle is in peak shape and as safe as possible. Any cracked glass, including windshields or rear glass panels, not only poses a safety hazard but also sends the wrong message to your employees. Rather than make employees uneasy about operating company vehicles, replace damaged glass promptly.

7. Use Glass Furniture

Though it’s attractive in most settings, dark wood furniture doesn’t do much to brighten the office. From receptionist’s desks to boardroom tables, glass-top furniture makes a room feel larger and less cluttered. If you don’t have the budget to replace all of your employees’ desks, even a few strategic furniture swaps can make a huge difference in opening the place up.

I broke my sliding back door window on my pickup truck with my lawn mower. They came out to my work and replaced the window with a whole new slider. Everything turned out great. I got good service and a good price. I chose them because they worked with me on price. I would definitely use them again if I have any glass issues.

Everything turned out great! He did not try to sell me a whole new window, he was efficient and cleaned up the glass. The window is great and matches the other windows in my house.

Sunday afternoon my husband hit a rock that went thru my rear window. I called my insurance company and put in a claim. I called Martin Glass Monday morning. By 5:00PM that afternoon 2 guys from Martin Glass had my rear window installed. What a relief! Very professional.
