Refurbished cubicles that are professionally repurposed can actually be better than new. Repurposed cubicles consist of frames and bases that have been previously used. Work surfaces, panels, and accessories, however, are constructed from all new materials. These surface materials come from a vast inventory of laminate types, fine wood veneers, glass inserts, glass tops, and special fabrics. With so many options to consider, it is important to understand the role that each of these components plays in building a functional workstation with viable decorative appeal.
