Office Furniture Tips and Tricks
Crating an efficient and functional office space is important to keep our life and work balance even. The best office structure does not come by chance we need to plane ahead. High functional office space needs planning and consideration to comfortably support the work and activities for the day to day business operation. Below I am discussing few guidelines which will help the most demanding argument of “we need more furniture” we will be discussing on how to create more space for our much needed office chairs and desks to enhance our team’s energy, productivity and creativity.
It’s often unwise to do math on how much square footage we got to work within. Today’s real estate can leave fewer square feet per worker, so it’s important to utilize the space wisely. Now a days there are various office desk options available one can choose both compact and spread-out work environment. There are also options to mix and match the sizes allowing you to utilize the work space easily.
Another option to consider is visual divider. A bigger desk with a visual divider can help reduce space constrains while giving the workers autonomy in their work station. On the other hand, a Barcelona lounge chair rather than separate waiting room chair can help reduce the furniture size, while making the office décor more clean and professional.
Few things must be pre-considered before buying the office furniture. We need to forecast how many workers will use the space each day? How many remote workers, contractors and vendors will use your space periodically? How many people can the space accommodate as well as how much is the budget? We should take into account some workers need more work surface then others. While some workers may prefer a bit of personal storage space for office goodies like colored markers, power cords or a bit of snacks. If the office structure demands more flexibility in space and accommodation then modular furniture would be a wise decision.
It is also a good idea to create a palate of office spaces. One can have a big or small lounge space to retreat from all day long work on the same desk. As well as a lounge space or a conference desk will motivate group work environment. On the other hand, it is also nice to have a quite space where phone calls can be made peacefully or private. Considering these situations it is good to have different palates in the office rather than a bunch of cubical.
Office culture is very important for the business success. It is well established that physical space had a direct impact on office moral, efficiency, creativity, growth and even profitability. Having the best furniture not only support the work but also makes the work done more efficient and enjoyable.
