How to Finish Your Old Office Partition
So you’ve got an office partition, and you’re ready to start moving up to your next big project. Or maybe your office partition is starting to show its age and you’d like to replace it with a new look.
One of the things you want to do is get it done correctly so that the partitions are seamless. One way to achieve this is to drill holes in the partitions to let the headroom get out. But be sure not to drill too deeply, or else you might damage the partitions.
It’s a good idea to ask for help. Ask your contractor or office partition specialist for ideas on how to partition your office. You should also ask if they have any suggestions on how to make your new office partitions work with your existing furniture. This may mean that you can get rid of some items.
Start by doing what you can to get all of your wall partitions into their proper place. Measure and make sure they line up correctly. Then make sure that you push them out just enough so that you can put a trim piece down over the top of them to keep them in place. Now put a piece of trim on each side of the panel and place that in place.
Next, put one set of office partitions back into place and tighten them a bit. Next, use double-sided tape to get each of the sections in place. Using a box, place one side on top of the other.
Now that you have everything in place, you need to cut down the dimensions of the divider. Use the route plan on the page where you marked the dimensions you want and use it to guide you. You’ll also need to measure the distance between the center of the dividing panels, but again, it’s very straight forward.
The height and width of the divider are very important. You need to make sure the wall panels are up high enough that the doors will be above eye level. If you want to put in more than one panel, get the measurements for both, then use them to cut the dividers so they can hold up a second door on each side.
There you have it; your next big project – put an end to your old office partition! Give it a go; it doesn’t take long. You may be surprised at how easy it is to finish that partition!
