Now that you’re looking for new wood office furniture for everyone in your office, you may be concerned about what you’re going to find, its quality and even more, the prices you’re going to pay. You’ve been told to make sure that the furniture is stylish. At the same time, you have to stay within a specific budget.
What You Should Look For
What are the best office chairs for the employees? Are you wondering where to buy office chairs? You may be surprised to learn that you can go to local furniture stores, as well as large chain stores. But, where will you get the best deal? That depends. Chairs have to be comfortable and give support to the lower back.
Desks have to have sufficient space on the top as well as in the drawers, yet they still need to fit in small spaces. If your co-worker needs lots of storage, a matching hutch may add to the high-end look while giving that coworker the space they need for storage.
Think about where you plan to place the furniture. This affects what you decide to buy. If you’re replacing the CFO’s office suite, it needs to look high-end. If the data entry clerks are getting new furniture, you may be able to find less ornate desks and chairs.
Don’t forget about durability. The furniture you’re buying will be used for eight hours a day, five days a week. You may move furniture from office to office. How well will it stand up to drawers being opened, items being dragged across the top? How well will chairs hold up to the weight of the people using them? Will the wheels fall apart?
Wood Office Furniture Styles
Wood office furniture can be simple or it can be ornate, with carving in exposed areas. Wedge desks take up less room while still holding a computer, notebooks, paper, phone and a printer.
Rectangular desks may take up a larger piece of real estate in an office, so these should be reserved for larger offices, perhaps for a company officer. Simpler wood desks can be assigned to secretaries, bookkeepers and clerks. Even writing desks can be purchased and assigned to employees who don’t have to worry about storing large amounts of paperwork. Computer desks, with their shelving systems, are ideal for someone whose main responsibility is limited to working on the computer.
Buying Used Wood Office Furniture
If cost is a big factor, you may be able to find attractive, used wood furniture that still has years of use left in it. When you contact a sales person at each store or office furniture manufacturer, ask them about their stock of used wood furniture. You may be surprised at the high quality and the “like-new” appearance of the furniture you see.
Remember, you can save as much as 50 percent when you buy used furniture. Even though it’s used, it may have very little wear and tear. Buying used also helps you to protect the environment. Don’t forget about the depreciation factor. Used furniture’s value may retain as much as 75 percent of the price you paid for it.
