When purchasing new office furniture, remember that it will get a lot of use. For a comfortable, productive work environment, it makes sense to choose furniture based on your specific needs, and we can help. When you select pieces tailored for yourspecific situation, you will find that your furniture is comfortable, beneficial to productivity, and it will fit in your life like a glove. The best office furniture is that which you barely notice as you move through your day; that means it’s working right for you.
Most modern jobs require people to sit down all day in a chair at a desk, perhaps in front of a computer. While this can be a relaxing lifestyle, it also has a few drawbacks. These can include muscle aches, back problems, and other health issues related to sitting for long periods and repetitive motion. We at Innovative Office Designs have experience in finding the proper chair for your needs and your typical work conditions. For example, we can supply you with ergonomically-designed furniture that will reduce the incidence of common work-related health problems.
If you need a flexible work environment that you can change easily to fit the day’s needs, consider lighter-weight modular furniture. These styles focus less on panel systems and more on lightweight tables and desks, commonly with casters on the legs.
Before deciding on a final layout, be sure that each piece has a purpose. Removing unnecessary elements will give you more open space and reduce clutter. Another space-saving measure is to make digital copies of your important paperwork and move file cabinets to less-frequently used, out of the way areas of your work environment.
On the other hand, make sure you have the storage necessary for your files, books, extra office supplies, and other necessities. Plan for the future as well; nothing causes clutter to pile up faster than finding you don’t have enough storage space for new materials. Be sure that your frequently-used supplies are easily at hand, and reserve bottom shelves and back cabinets for less frequently-needed materials.
Of course, we know that a prime consideration when purchasing new office furniture is price. It is sometimes more important to have the right furniture than it is to have the newest designs, and on other occasions it is important to have snappy-looking furniture to impress your clients. In any circumstance, we can help you fit the furniture you need into the budget you have.
