Advantages and Disadvantages of Cubicles in Office Spaces

During the pass couple of decades, cubicles have gone from being an expected office staple to a passé office design that many younger workers frown upon. But are cubicles right for your specific office space, or would a more open layout be better? There are plenty of pros and cons to consider. We’re here to help you make a well-informed decision about whether to invest in cubicles for your office.

Why so many offices have cubicles

Offices originally became very popular because they allow each employee to have a semi-private workspace without incurring the costs of creating separate private offices for each one. Cubicles are a cost-effective means of establishing separate areas for each employee to work. Aside from the financial benefits, cubicles enable a certain level of privacy that simply doesn’t exists in an open office layout. As a result, employees may be able to concentrate and be more productive in cubicles with fewer distractions. Wall space in each cubicle allows employees to post diagrams, notes, photos, and more. Each cubicle also has space to store office essentials like notepads, pens, and other supplies.

Considering an open layout

Many companies are deciding to go with an open layout to foster collaboration and creativity among employees. An open layout only works if your office has plenty of space for workers – cubicles can be placed together more closely. If your workers collaborate on a regular basis, an open layout may be the ideal choice for your office. But if your employees need to focus and concentrate, cubicles would be your best bet. Choosing to have cubicles or an open layout depends on the culture and goals of your office.
