Whether you want to have art to fill white walls, impress clients or motivate your
employees, choosing photography prints for the home or office can be difficult and it’s
important not to get it wrong and give your clients/colleagues the wrong impression. Here
is our guide for decorating office with wall Art.
What do you want your clients to think when they enter your office? Is your office Wall Art
conveying your brand, character and culture or does it appear as just another faceless
It’s easy to forget the importance of corporate decor for leaving a good first impression.
Many companies like to use their brand colours or commission artwork that incorporates
their brand values, however the can come across as being quite impersonal, yet very
Art is a good way to start small talk: the story about acquiring art or what the art means for
the company can be a nice introduction to any meeting and a good talking point because
everyone loves stories.
Watch your budget
If you want to impress clients but can’t afford to spend much on artwork, have more
expensive work in areas that are more visible–the lobby or meeting room. Renting is a
good way to have expensive art for the fraction of the cost. If you can’t afford to invest
£15k for a painting at once, you can rent it for £800 per month.
Include your employees
A study from Exeter University shows that when employees are involved in the decoration
of their surroundings, the productivity increased by 30%. Art is subjective and not everyone
will always be happy with the choice but you can overcome this by having less offensive
and abstract works in the common rooms and let employees choose works for their
workspace that fit the corporate decor and identity. Bigger companies can also use our
voting tool or form an art committee that will make the decision.
Mix it up
If you are the kind of person who gets bored easily, you could vary the art on the walls
every year. Instead of buying new pieces of artwork each time you want a change, how
about changing the placement of the pictures you currently have? It will be much more
cost effective for you and you wont end up with lots of used pieces of art without a home,
cluttering up your office space.
