Choosing the right office furniture for your fit out or refurb is a classic case of balancing form and function. You want your office space to look good and to accurately reflect your company brand and ethos; at the same time, it needs to be an effective working environment for your employees.
Office Furniture – Form
What look are you going for? Clean, simple and minimalist; modern, bright and stylish; traditional, classic and substantial? You want your office space to reflect and communicate your company ‘personality’, not only to make a good first impression on your clients, but also to help make your employees feel truly part of the company.
For example, if you want people to think of your business as steady, long-established and trustworthy, consider solid traditional furniture, real wood and a conservative colour palette. On the other hand, if you want your business to convey a slick, youthful, cutting-edge vibe, consider contemporary modular furniture, glass and Perspex, and bold accent colours against a crisp white base.
Office Furniture – Function
When choosing office furniture, you need to consider the available space. How many desks do you need to fit in? If you’re a growing company, you’ll need to leave room for more desks in the future. How many meeting rooms do you want? How much storage do you need? Do you want to include a break-out area for staff and/or a waiting room/area for clients?
We believe there are three main categories of high-use office furniture, i.e. furniture that is used all day, every day: seating, tables/desks and storage. Furniture that falls into these categories has to be comfortable, practical, hard-wearing and fit-for-purpose. That said, within each category, there are different kinds of furniture for different purposes; for example:
- Desk chairs
- Client waiting room/area
- Meeting/board rooms
- Comfy chairs and sofas for break areas
- Cafeteria seating
- Office desks
- Cafeteria tables
- Meeting/board room tables
- Drawing desks
- Under-desk drawer units
- Filing cabinets
- Lockers for employees’ personal belongings
