Whether you want to have art to fill white walls, impress clients or motivate employees, choosing office wall art can be difficult. Here is our guide for decorating office with wall Art.
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 the artwork, Rise Art Corporate Services allows companies to rent and rotate the art every 6-12 months to keep things fresh. This is especially useful for companies whose clients visit often as they will be impressed by different art from time to time. Not having to commit long-term also makes the difficult decision of choosing art easier, in case your boss or colleagues don't like it. Finally, renting is tax efficient and can be listed as an expense in accounting.
