5 Tips for Choosing Office Furniture

In order for us to work as effectively and productively as possible within our offices, the furniture we choose is hugely important. Offices that have been designed well and with the correct furniture chosen are able to increase the level of effective work we produce. It is crucial that we make an educated decision on the furniture we choose to ensure our offices are a space for hard work and concentration.


Whilst it’s important for our offices to look aesthetically pleasing, your priorities should lie in their functions. How many desks do you need to ensure everyone has their own space? How sturdy do they need to be in order to support all equipment? It’s important to have a firm idea of what you need your office furniture to do, other than being a place for work.


It’s tempting to purchase all the furniture you love without knowing where it will all go. Under or overestimating how much space you have is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Measure the space you have and ensure that no furniture will cover windows or doors. Working in a cluttered office can really prevent efficient working.


The furniture you choose for your office needs to fit your body. If you are tall, it’s important to choose a chair and table that isn’t too short- they need to be in proportion to your body. Remember that you are going to be sitting in your office chair for multiple hours of the day, so it’s important that you’re comfortable in doing so. Chairs or tables that give you aches and pains can result in less productivity throughout the day.


Ensuring you choose high quality office furniture is hugely important. Buying furniture just because it seems cheap is never a good idea as it can be inferior. This means it will last a much shorter amount of time due to breaking or will not provide you with the comfort you need for 8 hours of the day. If you decide to choose office furniture based on price alone, you’ll end up spending more money when the time quickly comes to replace it.


It’s vital that your office has an adequate amount of storage space. Whether you need it for your paper and files or somewhere to keep your stationary; a crammed desk can reduce concentration and work efficiency. You could add some cupboards to your office space, or filing cabinets, shelves and under-desk storage. The possibilities are endless, and your proactivity will thank you for it.

Here at The Essex Group, we have a fantastic range of high quality office furniture to help you give your work space a complete overhaul. Whether you’re looking for desks, seating, tables or storage, we have it all. For more information, you can get in touch with a member of the team by giving us a call on 0845 1700 222.
