Developing the perfect office environment goes beyond just choosing the right space; selecting the right furniture in which to outfit the space with is extremely important.
Understanding what the main function of your office will be (is it a place that people will be spending a lot of time in, or not; being able to determine this will help in choosing the type of furniture you need). Here are some important considerations that should be made when deciding on office furniture:
Employees will be sitting and working most of the day, so providing them a comfortable chair and desk is a must. Nowadays, ergonomic chairs and desks become a trend for they make working easier, as supported by health studies. Aside from chairs and desks, you can also buy other furniture and style your interior depending on your business type. Are you aiming for a cafe-like atmosphere where employees can easily communicate and collaborate with each other? Buy a huge table and a few chairs. Are you going for a formal feel with cubicles so that they can focus? Buy a desk with cubicle-dividers. Whatever your plans are, keep in mind that your choice should make your office a conducive environment for work.
It is common sense to buy furniture proportionate in size to your office space. Bringing bulky ones will consume a huge chunk of your office. With the cramped space, you and your employees won’t be able to freely move around. Thus, first know the dimensions of your office and from there, research for ways on how to maximize it. Arranging furniture in a certain way can also help make your office look more spacious. The bottomline is to provide your office with the right furniture and remember to leave enough room for your team to be comfortable in.
Purchase the kind of furniture that can contribute to the beauty of your office. Good office design lightens up the mood, eases stress, and increases productivity. To do this, having a little background on the psychology of colors is an advantage. For instance, if you want your office to have a creative and energetic atmosphere, use the color orange. If you want to exude wisdom and tranquility, use blue. However, be mindful when choosing a multitude of different colors. If you wind up with a clashing mixture of them, it can disturb your company identity or cause headaches to your employees and any onlookers. (Joanah Gamboa, medium.com)
