Make better use of the space you have on offer by brightening and utilising every inch.
Initial Interiors will work with you to find out the right colour scheme for your workspace and make the refurbishment a totally positive experience.
Interior Glass Partitions and Doors with Noise Reducing Benefits
If you are looking for privacy between offices and meeting rooms or want some strong walls that are capable of holding multimedia devices, then you may want to consider glass partitions and doors. Both the framed and frameless options offer the benefits of an attractive aesthetic effect and positively enable you to enjoy a bright and vibrant office space by maximising natural light.
Whilst some offices relish a completely open space, others require some privacy or plenty of storage which is where these glass partitions and doors are the perfect solution.
Light is so important in a London workspace as traditionally property space is at a premium, whilst natural light is favoured as the best, it’s important to strike the sweet balance of correct lighting for the wellbeing of your staff. With a power data lighting installation service, you can not only save on energy and costs with the right LED technology but also it should have an instant impact on how your staff work.
As well as great lighting solutions, media walls can also be installed in your boardroom with projectors fitted onto the ceiling with screens that can slide out of the ceilings for presentations and/or training. These will enable you to have conferences with clients anywhere in the world which is imperative with a recent emergence of WFH – Working From Home – opportunities.
Budget to Bespoke London Office Flooring Solutions
As well as office fit outs and glass partitions, office and commercial flooring is also a service Initial Interiors offer. Their flooring solutions include carpet tiles, vinyl flooring and laminate flooring.
Carpet tiles are both cost effective and extremely versatile. Not only that but they are easy to replace when damaged and easily maintained. Vinyl is versatile, easily cleaned and hard wearing – best suited to areas like kitchens, canteens and toilet areas which see a lot of footfall and require regular cleaning.
Other flooring solutions include engineered wood office flooring which is both natural and visually appealing and is great for the floors of receptions and boardrooms. Another option, although not used as regular as others due to the expense, is ceramic tiles or marble flooring – these are perfect for a reception area or lobby as they give a great first impression.

They not only enhance the acoustics of an office but they enable you to install brighter and improved lighting. When choosing this service, Initial Interiors will help you to select different tiles to suit your needs (one type being sound absorbing tiles help to reduce background noise).
