Purchasing new office furniture is an important decision to make. It isn’t going to be cheap, even if you choose lower-priced furniture, so you need to be sure you are making the right decision. Here are some pointers for businesses considering buying new office furniture:
- Talk to your staff about what they want. They may have very different ideas to you about what they want from office furniture.
- Make sure it is practical. Choose furniture that offers plenty of storage and that can be placed in the office to form a logical layout.
- Choose furniture that solves the problems you currently have. For example, if staff members need more support for their backs, select chairs that will offer this.
- Be health and safety conscious. Chairs and desks especially should be comfortable and safe for staff to use for extended periods of time. Select furniture that is fully adjustable to meet different needs.
