Enhancing Office Spaces: Framing Artwork for a Professional Environment

Are you a business owner, team manager or your company's designated creative mastermind? If you’re taking the reigns for the ambience of your workplace, you are in just the right place to learn about the importance of office wall art and how custom framing can help enhance your office space's aesthetic appeal.

Dull and uninspiring office environments that lack visual interest can be demotivating. Some of us spend more time in our home or workplace office than in our living room or home. So, having an environment that motivates creativity and productivity is essential for all employees using the space.

While you may intuitively know that your office needs a little something, it can be challenging to know exactly what a space needs, especially when needing to align with a professional atmosphere. With the proper professional framing and the right designs, art can boost productivity, foster creativity and create a more positive work environment. If you are looking for an expert opinion on all things framing,  Portfolio Picture Framers are here to help.

Why is office wall art important? 

The impact of office wall art in shaping an uplifting and motivating work environment cannot be overstated. We all intuitively feel the effects of a space when we enter, either feeling energised or drained. In a shared office space, the right artwork on the office walls creates more than just a visually pleasing ambience; it becomes an instrumental part of the office decor, stimulating creativity and elevating employee morale. Ideally, office decor should represent the company and what it stands for; wall art, art prints and office interiors aren't simply aesthetic choices.

Whether your workplace aligns with abstract art, vibrant bursts of bold colour, or traditional photography prints, there are various options when it comes to selecting the right wall art for your office space. Regardless of the chosen style, incorporating wall art breathes life into your office environment. Some companies opt to curate a comprehensive assortment of framed prints or floating frames, showcasing the company's values and amplifying the brand image to both visitors and employees. 

But it is not just the workplace office that benefits from office decor; your home office could also benefit immensely from some carefully curated wall art prints. When you select the perfect piece for your wall, whether it be abstract art prints or inspirational quotes, you can transform your home office into a space that more thoroughly represents you and, more importantly, motivates you to get some work done.

Whether you're decorating a vibrant corporate office or a tranquil home workspace, choosing the perfect art prints can create a truly remarkable transformation in your work environment.

Tips for selecting and curating artwork that aligns with the professional atmosphere and branding of the office

While being in charge of selecting the wall prints for your home office decor or corporate wall decor can be an exciting endeavor, it can also be a little bit daunting. Here are our top tips for displaying pieces that have a bigger impact on the environment while keeping things professional for the office environment.

Reflect your company’s personality

Your office artwork should reflect the core values, mission, and culture of your company. If your company is innovative, young and forward-thinking, consider modern or abstract art that challenges conventional norms and plays with colour. If your brand is more traditional, classic art pieces or photographs might suit the office environment more.

You can also print photos of your company’s goods and services to further enhance the branding of your company’s office space. For example, a crane company might display a photograph of one of their cranes at a job site, or a boat construction company might want to display images of their completed boats. A restaurant or bar might want to display images that reflect their culture or cuisine. 

Consider colour psychology

Colours evoke different feelings and reactions in individuals. For instance, blues can induce feelings of calm and trust, while red can energise and stimulate. It's a good idea to consider colour psychology when selecting the pieces for your walls.

Keep it professional

While it's easy to get carried away with a wide variety of abstract wall art, it's important to remember that it is a professional setting. For your home office collection, feel free to take risks and decorate however you see fit (remembering placement for Zoom calls). Still, for the workplace office, it is best to avoid any artwork that could be considered offensive, controversial or too personal for a shared space (keep the family portraits for your home).

Size and scale matter

The size of the artwork should be in proportion to your space; if you need any advice on the perfect piece for your area, our team can help. Large pieces can create a focal point and make a bold statement if placed in a large open space, while smaller pieces may be best for individual offices or meeting rooms.

Support local artists

Supporting local artists can be a great way to demonstrate your company's commitment to the local community. Shop around, and you may be surprised by what you can discover in your local neighbourhood. Likewise, ask your coworkers for suggestions, as you never know who's best friend, aunty, or sister-in-law is hiding a secret artistic talent.

Maintenance and care for framed artwork in office settings

  • Lighting: When placing your new art pieces, take note of any strong light sources, as both UV and artificial light can cause damage to your pieces. Considering UV-protective glass to protect your designs may also be a good idea if you intend to hang the pieces in a place which receives a lot of natural sunlight. 
  • Placement:Avoid hanging frames near heat sources, air conditioning units or open windows. If you are placing a frame in a common area, it is a good idea to use plexiglass in case of damage to the glass.
  • Clean: Dust your frames regularly with a soft, dry cloth.
