Discounted Office Furniture By Cubiture.Com
As a business owner, you want your office to hum along smoothly, enabling you and your employees to satisfy your customers and clients. You also want your office environment to communicate professionalism, welcome and a well-put together environment. How do you do that when you’re on a strict budget? By planning ahead.
Decide What You Need
Take stock, using pen and paper, to decide what you’re going to need. How many desks and chairs? Are the filing cabinets showing their age? Is the reception-area furniture starting to show too much wear and tear?
Now that you know what quantity of each item you need, it’s time to think of other factors, including price.
Take the Future Into Consideration
While the office furniture you’re looking at meets your needs right now, it may not meet them in three or five years. Therefore, take the future into consideration as you’re deciding what you’re going to order for the office and your employees.
An example is the filing system you’re looking at. Today, it meets your current needs. How much do you project growing in three to five years? Will that filing system be sufficient then or will you need to invest even more money in a new system then?
Next, look at the quality of the discount furniture you’re looking at. Is it simply inexpensive? Or is it cheap and badly made? You get what you pay for. If you pay for shoddy furniture, you’re going to be dealing with reception table legs that fall off; reception chair arms that begin to sag; desk drawers that stick or even begin falling apart. Even though it may cost you a little more now, buy the discount furniture that costs more. Because it’ll hold up longer, you’ll save money in the long run.
Go for Practicality
Space, storage and surface working space. These are all the considerations you need to worry about right now. Kick that idea about the contemporary look out of your head. If it won’t help your workers to capitalize on those three considerations, it isn’t vital.
While your physical space may be small, it’s possible to capitalize on the space you have. Rather than ordering huge pieces of furniture, downsize a little. Order smaller desks. If you can manage with overhead storage cabinets, order these.
Next, look at the physical arrangement of your furniture. Rather than putting each department all in a row, think about placing four desks into an arrangement where they are facing each other. First, it takes up less room and second, it allows the workers in that pod to communicate more easily with each other. If you have the computer program, measure your office’ space and plug the numbers into the program. Next, you’ll be able to work on different virtual layouts, giving you a much better idea of how to utilize that small space.
What Does Your Office Say About You Now?
While the furniture you’re looking at is certainly eye-catching, what message does it communicate to visitors and clients? Is the reception-area chair comfortable or do customers look pained as they sit and wait for their appointments?
Color schemes tie into what your office is communicating. That bright color combination you’re considering may not be something your workers or clients like. Consult with your employees and take their suggestions seriously. You’ll be happy you did.
