High-traffic areas, such as reception hallways, are prone to damage because too many people go through these areas on a daily basis. Even if furniture does not get damaged by shoes or bags, it simply wears off faster. There are several options how to restore a front desk and all furniture overall:
Below is a front desk that we needed to restore. Panel edges peeled off and the color itself went pale.
For that project, our client, The Beasley Apartments, wanted to have the exact wood pattern and color, so they chose our W207 Walnut pattern from Wood Collection. We’ll skip details of architectural film installation, you can find all the benefits that our client enjoyed in our blog. In short, it saves budget, time, produces virtually no waste, and achieves the same aesthetic result.
It is done in two steps. First, installers sand the old surface to ensure it’s entirely flat. Second, they wrap it with architectural vinyl film. No additional panel layers, no business interruption, no changes in the overall design. Just a refreshed appeal for Beasley’s hallway.
It may not look very convincing at first glance – did anything change at all? But that’s the beauty of this very project – we restored the original appeal of the front desk without any changes in its aesthetic. Simply a new front desk, but not at the price of a really new one.
