PART 1 - Tips for Buying Commercial Furniture

Starting a business is exciting as is expanding your business with bigger premises and more staff.

Exciting times means making decisions. When it comes to commercial furniture, it is easy to assume that a desk with an office chair is enough for each member of staff. But how do you choose wisely?

Office Furniture

Our commercial office design team has come up with a number of tips for helping you do just that, that we decided to split them over a two-part blog post.

Check back for Part 2 to see what else is a must when designing and furnishing a commercial office or work premises.

#1 Budget

We’ve put it in the number one spot because how much or little you have to spend on commercial furniture for your office is the guiding principle for the choices you make.

However, there are two aspects you should compromise little on;

  • Professional design to ensure you have an office where work and people flow and collaborate easily
  • Quality is essential, thus buy the best you can afford

#2 Office dimensions and shape

Some offices are modern, light, airy and purpose-built but for other businesses, home is an older building.

Both have pros and cons but trying to fit desks that are simply too big, too angular or not angular enough into a space that simply cannot accommodate makes everything ten times harder.

Again, a design team experienced in working with commercial customers providing commercial office design and furniture is worth every penny.

#3 Lighting

Whether it is a home office or a larger commercial premises, lighting is a top priority.

Any office design needs to make the best use of natural light but without glare. That means versatile and practical window treatments.

Ambient lighting also needs to be adjustable and well-placed.

#4 Comfort

Ergonomics is the design principle of creating a space that aids the work activities being carried out in it. This means everything from the ‘right’ height of desk to the type of chair or stool people need.

Not every workstation needs to be the same and neither are the ergonomic solutions for one business that same as those needed for another.

#5 Cleanliness

Hygiene is important, especially in a shared workspace. The easier an office is to keep clean, the more it will be done and the more pleasant it will be to work in.

Easy to clean desks and other commercial office furniture are important too but don’t assume this means the only style that will work is a corporate, anonymous one.

As our commercial furniture team will show you, an office can be anything but boring…
