What Message Does Your Office Artwork Send?

Office with and without artResearch already shows that artwork in the workplace can influence employee productivity, for better or for worse. Certain colors encourage creativity while others prompt collaborative effort. Art has the power to raise one’s spirits or bring them crashing down like waves on a sharp and punishing rocky shoreline. What does all of this have to do with your business?

Everyone, at one point or another, has entered a dark, dingy doctor’s or lawyer’s office, where the outdated and depressing prints on the wall hang sullenly – and sometimes crooked – like a visual depressant just taunting your mood, daring it to be cheerful. Conversely, most people have experienced the opposite feeling of walking into a bright and vibrant place of business where bold colors and happy images greet you, hung crisply and cleanly in a way that denotes professionalism and welcome.

What kind of picture is your artwork painting (pun intended!) about your business? Walk into your reception area and view it through the eyes of a client. Would you be eager to return here? Would you be excited to do business with the people within this place? If the answer is no, maybe it’s time to consider revamping your wall art and the way in which it’s displayed.

Waiting room with and without art

Maybe you need a whole new collection – it doesn’t have to be extravagant, just fitting to your workplace goals and evocative enough to inspire your clients (or potential clients) to remember their visit due to its distinct qualities. Maybe you already have some amazing pieces, and your current picture hanging system just isn’t doing them justice. In either case, what’s a good option that will really stand out from the crowd?

A picture rail system is the ideal way to create a cohesive look that brings the atmosphere inside your business to the next level. You can suspend your pieces from the ceiling, hang them in a group, in vertical lines, or spaced closely, hung horizontally along one rail for a truly unique feel.

The real beauty of an art mounting system is that you can quickly and easily change the pieces – switch them out each season, or put up themed pictures for each holiday. Your clients will look forward to the spontaneity, wondering what you’ve got up your sleeve next.

Don’t get stuck in the same old boring, predictable rut. Contact us today to find out what the most affordable picture rail system in the industry can do for your business.
