Incorporate Granite in Office

Most people associate granite with designer kitchens and lavish bathrooms where elaborate countertops are the center of attention, but granite offers a great deal of versatility. Granite can be incorporated into many living spaces because of its highly aesthetic looks, but there other advantages to consider. Granite is durable, resilient, and generally affordable, which makes it an ideal natural stone for office spaces. If you are looking for ideas related to granite in the office, consider the following.

1. Lobby and Reception Spaces

In Manhattan, a few of the historic buildings on Wall Street and in Times Square feature plenty of granite in their lobbies. Darker granite has a very sober and corporate look that can give a touch of class to an entrance. The floor, reception desk surface, and backsplashes are some ideas in this regard. Ultra-glossy dark granite looks sharp.

2. Conference Room Table

For the ultimate in office décor, nothing is more elegant than a conference room table made of polished granite slabs. Investment bankers at the Goldman Sachs offices in Hong Kong often credit the granite in their conference rooms with helping them close deals because the natural stone emanates a positive vibe.

3. Desk Surfaces

At the most exclusive co-working spaces around the world, granite desktops and shared work tables are reserved for higher-paying tenants and clients. Common areas such as coffee bars and gaming lounges may also feature granite surfaces, and many of them feature remnants instead of full slabs.

4. Home Office Floor

If you’re thinking about converting a den into a home office space, you may want to consider granite flooring. Since home offices do not usually take up a lot of square footage, you will not have to invest too much on granite floor tiles. Although corporate spaces tend to favor dark and shiny floors, you can choose the opposite for your home office. Earth colors with a honed or brushed finish may encourage you to walk barefoot around your office, a luxurious feeling you likely don’t have while at work. You only need to make sure to clean the floor regularly with a stone-safe product such as Granite Gold Squeeze & Mop Floor Cleaner® and seal it with Granite Gold Sealer®.

5. Accent and Decoration

Granite doesn’t have to be used solely for surfaces. It can also be part of office decoration. Small tiles can be used for backsplashes, and remnants can be put together so they make an individual design known as a granite medallion. Natural-stone decoration can always be complemented with indoor plants.
