In places like downtown Detroit, office designers are turning away from dark-paneled offices and depressing cubicles in favor of their city's industrial history and the clean, trendy look of industrial chic. The Detroit Free Press reported in a recent article that the new look for downtown office space includes bare brick, exposed ductwork, and concrete floors. The open floor plans foster interaction amongst employees and the playful designs and flexible spaces spark creativity.
If you're considering remodeling your office space in an industrial chic
design, one thing you may not have thought of is how you want to protect your
drywall, brick or plaster corners. Something that may match your look perfectly
while providing you the superior corner protection you need to keep your office
space looking crisp is our checker plate corner guards.
Checker plate corner guards are designed for strength in any situation,
holding up on the loading dock or in the warehouse just as seamlessly as they
will in your thriving office space. You even have the option of getting heavy industrial corner
guards in bare steel, in gray primer, or galvanized by special order.
According to the Detroit Free Press article, in addition to the wide open
spaces and the design techniques, those companies who are embracing industrial
chic are also embracing color. Gone are the beige office walls. In their place:
splashes of energy in various shades. Your corner guards can easily be painted
in any color you choose to match the rest of your colorful space.
