Computer Workstations and Desks for an Attractive Office

Friday, September 27th, 2013

If you’re looking to kit out a new office, you’ll want to consider the aesthetic appeal of your furniture as well as its functionality. Office Allsorts has a range of eye-catching computer workstations and desks to make the room look great and contribute to maximum production.

Because we spend so many of our waking hours at work, it really pays to create an office that is pleasing to the eye as well as being efficient. This is where interior decor comes into play; while we may not think of offices as being the most interesting places for design, they can certainly be streamlined and pleasant. Office Desks

Once you add a few plants and framed prints, your office can in fact become quite lovely and inviting. There are even colours that are said to enhance productivity and creativity. Design experts point to colours like green or sage to keep you focused, and hues such as pale orange to keep your energy levels up and enhance creativity.

Whatever your colour choices, you’ll need furniture that is ergonomic and doesn’t require much effort to use. You won’t want to be continually stretching or bending to reach files while seated (although frequent breaks to stand up and stretch or walk are recommended).

Purchase the right computer workstation or the first time, and you can help stave off a good-deal of office­-related physical stress.

Our Trexus Budget Computer Workstations are offered in pleasing colours. These are excellent for numerous employees, as they can be easily moved to accommodate different office layouts and spaces.

For an attractive desk, why not try out one of our Wave Desks? They offer something a bit different in terms of office design, with a wave-like edge and solid hardware.

For each of these options and everything in between, visit our furniture section to design your unique space.

Essential Office Furniture For a Small Business

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Whether you work from a home office, rent a small office or have a small office in your business premises, space is likely to be at a premium. Choosing office furniture that works in a small space can be tricky, so here’s our handy guide to making the most of your working area.

Size Wise

Getting the size right doesn’t always mean choosing the office furniture with the smallest dimensions. Of course, any furniture that you choose has to fit within the space that you have (and you should of course measure up before you even think about furniture shopping), but it’s important to consider your working requirements.

For example, if you need an occasional work space at your business premises for doing odd bits of paper work then you can get away with going for small, budget-friendly items such as the simple Trexus Basics Budget Computer Work Station desk.

If, however, your business is desk based then you need to make sure that your purchases are going to be comfortable and practical f

or everyday use.


A desk that incorporates storage is usually a good idea for a small business owner, as it means that you can keep your business essentials contained and close to hand. If, for example, you’re setting up an office in a corner of your home or business premises then a desk with storage will enable you to stop your important work items from spreading out within your home, shop or workspace.

The Aaaaah Factor

One item that you shouldn’t compromise on is a great office chair. If you’re going to be sitting at your desk every day (and perhaps even long into the evening) then you need to be comfortable in order to work effectively.

It’s certainly worth investing in padded, management style seating to save your back and shoulders.

When shopping for office furniture there are some items that you can save on, and others that are worth investing in. Take some time to consider your requirements before you shop and you’ll be rewarded with a comfortable and practical workspace.
