Is your office furniture in need of an update?

It’s a well-known and often lamented fact that we are all influenced and affected by our surrounding environment. While it’s easy for us all to control our home environment and to surround ourselves with the things that please and interest us, it’s sadly not true for the vast majority of workplaces. Factually, it is true that the average person will spend around 8 hours per day in their office. Little thought is traditionally given to how that often impersonal and institutional environment can be better utilised to increase productivity and creativity among the staff who work there.

Office furniture, lighting and storage can often work together to create that better environment. It is easy to think of the immense difference a well-furnished, well-lit office environment can make to the business. Not only is this true in terms of staff morale, but also in terms of how visiting clients might think of the business. There is only one chance at making a first impression with a new client. We can start by asking ourselves what we would think when attending a business meeting with a client whose offices were drab, furnished decades ago and looking tired. The chances are that we wouldn’t look at them in the best light no matter how good a service they might be offering.

There are safety issues too. If inadequate storage means things which should be stored out of sight are piled around the office, then there are obvious drawbacks to the operational capabilities, and risks of staff — or worse yet, clients, who might trip and fall over a pile of papers that should have been stored away.

Fortunately having an office remodelled doesn’t need to cost the earth and there are lots of ways to get the place spruced up and to start reaping the rewards of the effects a clean, pleasant working environment can have on everyone working in, or visiting that environment.
