Choosing The Right Office Furniture for You: Tips and Tricks

When it comes to choosing the right office furniture online for your workplace, we know it can be a challenging experience. As suppliers to a variety of venues, from office buildings to dental surgeries, and even funeral homes: we understand how important it is to choose correctly the first time.

The health and safety of your employees is bound to be one of your top priorities, and you’re going to want office furniture that’s comfortable. However, you’re going to also want furniture that allows for the optimum amount of productivity for your employees- no snoozing at the meeting table allowed! Did you know that on average office workers lose about an hour and a half of their working day due to discomfort and distractions? You, and your employees, could be utilising that time a whole lot better, and that all depends on the choices you’re willing to make regarding your office furniture.

So, if you want to discover how to decide the right furniture for your office space/home office space, we suggest diving deeper into the world of Think Office Furniture, and carry on reading!

Tip 1: Tape Measures Are Your Friend

It doesn’t matter what you’re actually planning on ordering; if you don’t have space, you simply don’t have space. And that would be fine… if you hadn’t already bought the office reception desk, and you now can’t fit it through the door. At Think Office Furniture, you have the ability to customise your reception desks to the size you need. Our products are custom man made.

There’s nothing worse than having to send something back because you didn’t measure up first, so be sure to not make that mistake when it comes to purchasing the office furniture of your dreams. A measuring tape never hurt anybody…that much.

Tip 2: Furniture Comfort Is Key

As we’ve mentioned previously, roughly 86 minutes of every day are not used productively by office workers, due to (primarily) discomfort. By taking an extra five while deciding on an office chair, you could save an awful lot more. Of course, maybe setting up a jumbo reclining heated massage lounge sofa might be a little extreme, but we’re sure you get the gist!

Tip 3: Office Style AND Substance

Now, obviously, you shouldn’t have to sacrifice one for the other. But more often than not, you find yourself stuck in an ‘ancient-looking-but-oh-so-comfy’ rut. We hate to break it to you: that chair is probably doing you a lot more harm than good, posture wise at least! At Think Office Furniture, we pride ourselves on our stylish and substantial task chairs, set to accomplish (almost) anything you throw at it! That being said, please don’t throw anything at our chairs…

Tip 4: The Future Isn’t That Far Away

In fact, if you think about it, the future is already here! The world seems to be spinning rather quickly as of late, and it’s easy to make quick decisions that seem right in the moment. But if you take a moment to at least consider some of the future possibilities when it comes to your office furniture, you could be saving yourself a lot of time (and money) in the long run. And besides, a bunch of our products are customisable, for example, our grey reception desks and our white reception desks are widely customisable when it comes to colour and style. We’re more than happy to be available to you until you get exactly what you want, whether that’s office reception desk related or otherwise. Easy peasy!

Tip 5: Some Superior Office Storage

Storage is something you really don’t realise you have until it’s gone, and when you realise? It can be heartbreaking. Sometimes, it’s better to not even let yourself get to the bargaining stage: invest in advance and banish disappointment. Or at least hide it in the fancy new office storage units, drawers, and cupboards you’ve bought from us at Think Office Furniture.
