If you’re like most of America’s working class, you probably spend eight hours a day behind a desk, in your office. With so much of your time spent in that office, you should take the time and resources to make the space one that truly fits you, your, style, and your comfort. These are just a few things to take into consideration when choosing the right office furniture for you and your needs.
Make a List and Check It Twice
The first step in choosing the right office furniture is just figuring out which office furniture pieces you need. Start with the essentials like a desk and chair, and then figure out if your job might need — or if you office might accommodate — additional chairs and tables for conferencing, filing solutions, book shelves, etc. Know what pieces you’re looking for going in, and then start working on narrowing down what features, shapes, and styles you want.
Last week we blogged about optimizing your office layout, and it’s back this week. Take an account of your office space and note things like windows, entrances, and wall outlets. Think about the size and organization of your space and keep that in mind when looking at office furniture.
Don’t Forget Functionality
Sure, style is important, but functionality should take precedence in choosing the right office furniture for optimal productivity and organization. Modern offices have lots of electronic components — from computers and printers to maybe even TVs and projector systems. Incorporate productivity into your decision making and your office will be neat, tidy, and functional. Don’t forget about the importance of ergonomics when choosing your chair, too!
Stay Stylish, Too
With functionality in mind, you should also stay true to yourself and your style. Like we mentioned at the top, this is your space, so make it yours! Choose colors and design styles that fit your personal taste, since you’re the one that will have to be looking at it for 40 hours a week. Maybe even consider some tasteful and beautiful artwork.
