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.
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.
