From Function To Form: Tips To Choosing The Right Office Furniture


Your office space isn't just where work happens—it's a reflection of your brand, culture and productivity. When it comes to setting up a new office or revamping an existing one, choosing the right furniture is critical. With so many options available, it can be overwhelming. Here are some tips to make the process smoother and more-efficient.

Assessing Your Needs

First things first: large corporations are continuing to clear out of the CLT Uptown office buildings, so now is a great time to look at your own office(s) and take a step forward with the idea of blending high-quality preowned and new office furniture.

Take a close look at your current office layout and furniture. Are you looking to expand, downsize, open the areas up, give more privacy, or simply refresh your space? Note the size of the space and how many you are planning to accommodate to ensure that there is no overcrowding or obstruction of traffic flow. Consider flexibility by selecting modular furniture systems that can be easily reconfigured to accommodate changing needs and growth.

Ergonomic Design for Optimum Comfort

The comfort and well-being of your employees can be enhanced by investing in ergonomic office furniture. Consider factors such as fully adjustable chairs, standing desks and height-adjustable monitor arms to promote good posture and reduce the risk of work-related fatigue and injuries. A comfortable and inviting workspace fosters employee satisfaction and productivity.

Quality and Durability

Investing in high-quality office furniture helps with long-term durability and sustainability, as well as ensuring that it will withstand daily use and maintain their appearance over time. Quality furniture not only improves the aesthetics of your office, it reflects positively on your company.

Budget Wisely

Establish a budget before purchasing new office furniture to ensure cost-effectiveness and sustainability. While it's tempting to select cheap options, consider the long-term value and return on investment provided by higher-quality furniture. Moreover, be sure the furniture in the high traffic and visitor areas is of quality. A lot of times this will mean this may strain the budget, yet it does not mean you have to compromise the quality of the furniture in the rest of the office furniture - you would be surprised what all is available for purchase in high-quality preowned furniture.

Reflecting Company Culture

Your office furniture says a lot about your company culture, so choose pieces that reflect your brand identity and values. Whether you prefer sleek and modern designs or classic and traditional styles, select furniture that aligns with your company's image. A cohesive and visually appealing office design makes a great impression on your customers and employees.
