Customizing Your Office Cubicle Configuration
Think of an office cubicle. What are you seeing; a bland, grey box that continually repeats itself in rows, all with the exact same look and configuration? Why is this? You most likely think this because of how cubicles were configured since their inception. However, over the years a shift in thought has posed the question; not all businesses are built the same, so why should your office cubicles be?
There are a nearly limitless number of ways to customize your office cubicle, though arguably the most important customization is the configuration of your office cubicle. Let’s take a look at some of the ways you can configure your office cubicle so you can determine what may be best for your business.
Selecting the Best Wall Height
There are several heights of cubicle walls to choose from. Some of the standard cubicle heights include: 72 inch high wall privacy, 54 inch medium height, and 42 inch low wall. 72 inch privacy walls are best suited in office environments where the employee needs to work in a quieter, more private setting, like a law office. 54 inch cubicle walls are best suited for offices that require some privacy, but also the ability to stand up and talk to other employees. 42 inch low wall cubicles are ideal in teaming and collaborative environments. Low walls allow an employee to address someone else without having to leave their cubicle.
Selecting the Best Cubicle Layout
Do your employees require lots of work-surface space? Is your business broken up into teams that work together throughout the day? These are the type of questions you need to ask yourself when deciding on the layout of your cubicle. Businesses that break their departments up into teams may want to consider a bullpen of cubicles. A bullpen of cubicles is essentially one large cubicle that shares a common center in which employees can engage. This cubicle layout is great for separating teams and allowing effective lines of communication between the team. Telemarketing stations, opposite of cubicle bullpens, are smaller cubicles in width, that share cubicle walls. Telemarketing stations are ideal in call team settings where not much surface space is necessary.
