Build Temporary Office Walls with Modern Room Dividers

Temporary office walls are a quick, cost-effective way to create privacy in busy workspaces. They can be used to build cubicles, makeshift conference rooms, and pony walls that give open spaces a sense of structure. And because of their flexibility, they’re often the preferred choice among small business owners and office designers. 

But before you invest in temporary walls, there’s another solution you should consider – modular room dividers. They function the same as temporary walls with far fewer drawbacks, offering a functional, cost-effective privacy solution for small businesses and corporate offices alike. 

The problem with temporary walls

But most temporary walls are lifeless, draining the energy from your office space. Not to mention, they do little to reduce the noise of talkative employees and ringing phones. And for modern offices, these ineffective walls just won’t suffice. 

Many of them also anchor to the floor and ceiling. And though they may be more structurally sound with two anchor points, it hardly makes them temporary. 

That’s why we created the Nomad System – portable room dividers that double as temporary office walls for improved visual privacy, acoustic control, and uncompromising aesthetics. 

Benefits of MIO Room Dividers

True visual privacy

Oddly enough, offices are distracting. And the best way to eliminate distractions is to hide them. Create visual barriers between employees, teams, and workspaces to increase focus, productivity, and morale around the office.

Control the acoustics 

Some employees may be numb to the constant drone of office noise. But that doesn’t make it any easier to work effectively. Noisy work environments create stress, interrupt conversations, and disrupt concentration. 

But with MIO’s advanced sound-absorbing materials, you’ll have full control of the acoustics in your office. The acoustic room dividers reduce echoes and reverberation to promote a private, stress-free environment. 

Quickly move them around

Temporary walls should be exactly that – temporary. Portable room dividers offer a flexible solution, enabling you to erect walls whenever and wherever you need. 

The lightweight construction and portable frame makes it easy to push, slide, or roll them into place wherever you need privacy. . 

How to use room dividers as temporary office walls

Section off a lobby or waiting room in your office

Customers and guests don’t need to see everything that’s going on behind the scenes. Build a temporary wall to block their line of sight from the lobby or waiting room. This will create a sense of privacy between your staff and customers, especially if you operate a health or medical clinic.   

Create instant conference rooms

Open office spaces promote creativity, collaboration, and flexibility. But they don’t leave much room for privacy. 

With noise reduction coefficients (NRC) as high as 0.90, MIO dividers provide nearly perfect sound absorption. Nomad and Shift dividers can be configured with NRC’s ranging from .25 to .90 to address everything from team huddles to board meetings..

And once the meeting is over, simply move the dividers out of place. 

Divide work areas

Everyone works in different ways. Some prefer quiet isolation while others embrace ambient noise and social workplaces. And if your team is outgrowing their office space, you likely already know this. 

Your marketing team works differently than your customer service team. And your finance team works differently than both of them. It’s in your company’s best interest to make sure each of these teams have their own productive work environments. Some may prefer open layouts while others prefer individual cubicles

And as your company continues to grow, healthy workspaces will have to grow with them. Room dividers adapt to these evolving needs so that you don’t have to lease a new office every time you hire a new employee.

Create a break room 

Everyone needs a break from work. But eating lunch at your desk hardly feels like a break. If your office doesn’t have a standard break room, make one! 

Section off a small area that allows employees to step away from their desk and come back refreshed. They can enjoy their lunch, chat with coworkers, or just decompress for a few minutes.

Outfit the area with modern furnishings to help them relax – they’ll return to work with a boost of energy after they’re done.

Hide office renovations

Office designs are constantly changing, especially as teams grow in size. But these changes don’t happen overnight, and construction can be distracting. 

Use dividers to create a temporary wall that hides long-term renovations or routine repairs that produce unwanted noise. 

Offer child daycare for young professionals

The last few years have blurred the lines around work-life balance. And as young professionals start to have kids, they must figure out how to balance work and parental duties. 

Companies are stepping up by providing longer parental leave and introducing hybrid schedules that allow employees to spend more time at home. Some companies even offer in-office daycare, providing a reliable childcare solution for young parents. 

If you’re looking to add a daycare center to your office space, temporary walls are the simplest way to do so. Set up acoustic dividers to clearly divide the work and childcare areas, offering both parties the visual and sound privacy they need. 

Give your office a modern look 

There are plenty of use cases for temporary walls in the office. But if the walls don’t match the energy in the room, they’re useless. Nomad Systems are designed for modern, creative spaces that need aesthetic privacy solutions.

And if the need is purely visual, they’re built for that too. Create architectural pieces and art displays that inject creative energy into your workspace.  

Temporary walls can be great for increasing productivity, creating privacy, and adding structure to your office. But they have their limitations – they’re expensive, plain-looking, and not very temporary. 

On the other hand, room dividers offer a greater suite of benefits like visual and acoustic privacy, flexibility, and cost effectiveness. If you’re looking for a structural solution for your office space, they offer the same benefits as temporary walls without the drawbacks.
