For the past year many of us have been working from home within our makeshift home office, longing for the day that we can return to our offices, see others that are outside our 4 four walls and take our seat in a well-missed desk set up. 2021 is the hopeful year that our offices will be making a well needed come back.

However, in order for this to happen, businesses will have to cater to new regulations for this to remain a safe environment.

In particular, offices may have to consider changing the layout of their workspace to guarantee compulsory working conditions are met.

Now, more than ever is a great opportunity to revamp your office space for the better.

A simple and inexpensive, yet effective way of creating more space

Office furniture is one of the most effective and reasonable ways to do this. Whether this be in a large commercial building or smaller, compact office spaces.

Not only does office furniture provide you with the foundations to complete your work but it speaks volumes on behalf of your companies personality and professionalism.

Furniture can instil a good first impression for those all-important clients, as well as increasing morale within the office. Which, with your employees returning to work after months of being away and clients being able to meet face-to-face once more, is important now more than ever.

When your staff are enveloped in comfort all day, naturally they will feel at ease within their workplace and become increasingly more productive.

When purchasing budget office furniture, consider the value for money; the amount of wear and tear these items will be subdued to over hours, days, even months, could see you replacing furniture sooner than you thought you would.

Chairs

When purchasing new furniture for your office, research which office chairs will offer support for your employees. After all, with the average adult spending more time at work than they do at home or socialising, it’s essential that your workers postures are well-looked after.

Ergonomic chairs have revolutionised the way we look at office furniture, each mastered piece has spent years in the making, paving the way for a new wave of office chair.

Brands such as Herman Miller and Humanscale have set a benchmark for ergonomic chairs.

Removing all unnecessary materials; replacing foam with mesh, stripping out the mechanisms to allow your body to control the movement, and no more fiddling around with bolts and nozzles instead use your own bodyweight to adjust the height and tilt.

The key factor in all of these brands and why we are proud stockists of them, is the time they’ve taken to manufacture environmentally friendly chairs designed to improve your health and posture. Determined to source all the best solutions.

With many designs available, shop our office chairs today and start creating a healthier environment for your office space.

Storage

A huge must in any office but often presenting issues due to their bulky and intrusive nature. The classic filing cabinets no longer have to be a nuisance in the office, with many new and innovative ways to organise paperwork and section off areas.

Storagewall is also a great way to segment your office, creating private spaces and especially accommodating the current guidelines for safe working, whilst utilising the space taken up with storage solutions.
