Are you looking for a way to bring new life into your office space, commercial building, or apartment complex? Renovating a large space is often expensive and time-consuming. Renovations disrupt business, leading to lost revenue and missed opportunities. Property managers and building owners looking for simple ways to refresh their space have a few options. Two easy renovations that require minimal downtime are window film and architectural finishes. They’ll allow you to continue operations without having to shut down for an extended period of time.
Window Film: Add Style & Protection
Not only is window film versatile, but it’s also easy to install as it adheres to any flat glass surface. Depending on the project scope, it may take as little as one afternoon to complete a window film installation. Although larger installations can take up to a few days, the time is minimal compared to traditional renovations. As a result, you don’t have to have any major disruptions that may cost you business. Also, depending on the nature of your business, we may be able to work around occupants without displacing them at all.
Transforms Glass Surfaces
Buildings with lots of glass typically have lots of natural light and views of the outside world. However, plain glass surfaces can leave much to be desired. With window film, there’s unlimited creative potential on where it can go. Window film can add color and style to glass surfaces while maintaining visibility. However, if privacy is a concern, frosted and decorative glass finishes have a higher opacity for reduced visibility.
Other Benefits to Window Film
Along with being aesthetically pleasing, window film also has a whole other host of benefits. It blocks up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays, protecting both your furniture and your skin from damage. Additionally, it can help your building better maintain temperatures to save you money on your utility bills. Safety and security film can also provide an extra layer of protection in the event of a break-in, burglary, or natural disaster.
Architectural finishes are design elements that can apply to almost any flat surface. As they simply adhere, there’s little to no downtime involved with installing architectural finishes. That being said, they’re an easy renovation that can bring new life and character into a space. Architectural finishes come in dozens of different designs, patterns, and textures. They can mimic the look of a variety of surfaces, including:
- Carbon Fiber
Whiteboard architectural finishes are also available for offices, which can enhance the design along with adding another space for collaboration. Abrasion-resistant designs are good for higher traffic areas that might need a more heavy-duty material. Architectural finishes can also be used to update building exteriors as well as interiors.
Sustainability is an important factor for some when considering renovations. Architectural finishes use existing surfaces to minimize waste and promote reuse. For that reason, they’re a sustainable way to transform blank walls, counters, hallways, elevator doors, and any other flat area. Some architectural finishes even qualify for LEED credits due to their efficiency.
