Our Advice: Tips For Choosing The Best Office Furniture

Is your office ready for a furniture refresh? Or, maybe you’re moving into a new space? Keep reading to learn the top tips for choosing the best office furniture.

How Do I Choose The Best Office Furniture?

To choose the best office furniture, you need to understand several factors. The hardest thing will be finding the right balance between furniture that is stylish and furniture that functions well. When you’re going furniture shopping, planning ahead is the best strategy.

Why Is It Important To Choose The Right Furniture For The Office?

It may seem trivial, but office furniture greatly influences the productivity and happiness of workers. Consider a situation where you purchase incredibly uncomfortable chairs, with minimal adjustments, for your office. Workers will complain of achy backs. They’ll also be less focused, less happy, and less productive. On the other hand, choosing a comfortable, ergonomic chair, will make employees feel better at work and more likely to get things done. 

5 Tips For Choosing The Best Office Furniture

Furnishing an office might seem simple, but there are many factors you need to consider. Follow these tips to choose the perfect furniture for your office space: 

  • Functionality vs. Style: Everyone wants attractive furniture, but choosing the right office furniture requires a steady balancing act between functionality and style. Ensure your desks are the correct size for the space,  have adequate storage,  and properly reflect the position of the person using them. For example, an executive should have a more elegant desk. HR will probably need multiple, lockable, pedestals or lateral files for filing. Take Measurements: You need to know how big your office space is to ensure you’re buying furniture that will fit into it. Measure the entire space before looking at any furniture, and double-check that it will fit again before making your purchase. 
  • Choose the Right Chair: One of the most important choices you’ll make while furniture shopping for your office is the desk chair or task chair you select. People spend most of their day in their chairs, so choosing an ergonomic chair with multiple adjustments that provides support, and comfort is essential. Can it also be stylish? Of course! Be sure to “test drive” multiple chairs to help you choose the best chair for you and your team.  
  • Storage: Workers need ample storage space for their papers, files, office supplies, and personal belongings. Make sure you choose a desk with storage and provide additional options for storage, like filing cabinets and shelves. 
  • Colors and Light: Going back to style, you should try to create an office space that encourages hard work and promotes positivity. Try finding furniture or small accessories that include colors to brighten your workspace. You should also make sure there is ample warm lighting.
