Office Design 101: Make Comfort Top Priority!

Office Design 101: Make Comfort Top Priority by OfficeAnything.com
When it comes to office remodeling, comfort reigns supreme! Sure you want your workspace to be stylish, but not at the expensive of operational functionality and versatility. A comfortably designed, well rounded interior is within reach. All you have to do is follow the tips, tricks, and product suggestions from today's post. Enjoy!

Office comfort starts with the chair. The chair you select will play a key role in determining your productivity levels throughout the work day. That being said, not all office chairs are created equal. When shopping for a new chair you'll be met with an extensive selection, and models will all start to look the same. So how do you choose?

4 Essential Chair Selection Tips:

  1. Ask the pros for help. They'll be happy to provide you with popular office chair suggestions that will work for your specific decor and ergonomic needs.
  2. Read reviews online. Blogs like ours are a great place to start. You can also check out ergonomic forums and manufacturer websites. If you can't find a good review, try searching for the owners manual of the chairs your interested in. Checking out the assembly and operating instructions will give you a great idea on how easy a chair will be to use.
  3. Visit a showroom. There's no substitute for trying out chairs in person! You'll also be able to pick up helpful literature that will teach you how to select the right office chair for your needs and body type.
  4. Watch demo videos online. If you don't have a showroom nearby, try searching for chair demo videos on YouTube. These days, reputable office chair brands provide in-depth video demonstrations of their top models to help inform shoppers.

Once you've selected an office chair for your space, it's time to select furniture and storage components. We recommend opting for a preconfigured typical set from a brand like Mayline, Offices To Go, or Cherryman Industries. Avoiding the custom, piece together method will ensure you purchase a well rounded package to meet your space requirements.

Today's most popular office furniture collections like Medina from Mayline offer the trend setting finish options and modern appeal needed to kick corporate appeal into overdrive while providing you with the storage components needed to operate effectively. As comfort is top priority and space is always at a premium, consider selecting a furniture set with an overhead hutch unit to provide you with additional floor space, as well as storage!

3 Office Furniture Selection Tips:

  1. Avoid overcrowding. Be sure to take careful measurements of your space. Don't purchase too many pieces and end up with an overly outfitted operating space that's hard to be productive in.
  2. Purchase from a full service collection. Mix matching furniture typically leads to remodeling remorse.
  3. Maximize storage space. Consider how much storage space you currently need, then double it. Always leave yourself room for growth to maintain a comfortable work environment. Products like overhead hutch units and other essential office storage solutions will help you save space while greatly improving organizing potential.

With your main office furniture and seating taken care of, it's time to accessorize. The ergonomic accessories you select should work in harmony together to help you achieve all day comfort. This year, brands like ESI Ergonomic Solutions, Symmetry Office, and Global Total Office are offering awesome ergonomic products that should be highly considered by any shopper looking to make comfort top priority.

4 Must Have Ergonomic Products:

  1. Monitor Arm - The factory base that came with your computer does little to assist you during busy days in the office. Upgrade to a dual screen monitor mounting system from a brand like ESI Ergonomic Solutions. You'll improve the rate at which you compute, reduce visual strain, and increase usable desk space.
  2. Articulating Keyboard Tray - The odds are, you already have a retractable keyboard tray. That being said, highly adjustable articulating models are the way of the future. With an articulating keyboard tray you'll be able to compute at correct, healthy angles to reduce the risk of office epidemics like Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
  3. CPU Holder - Simple and effective! The addition of a CPU holder will help create additional knee space underneath your desk while making your computer power source more accessible when you need it.
  4. Sit To Stand Table - Electronic sit to stand desk and table configurations are becoming an industry standard. With a sit to stand station you'll be able to promote continuous movement, avoid extended sits that can actually shorten your life span, and reduce fatigue.

In the long run, style is very important. You'll definitely want to design an office that impresses your valued guests and earns the respect of your peers. Thankfully, you can have the best of both worlds. By utilizing essential office chair selection tips, choosing furniture from a well respected manufacturer, and placing a key emphasis on ergonomic accessories you'll be on your way to the ultimate work day.

Design 101: Don't Let Your Dream Project Become A Nightmare

Office Makeover and Remodeling Tips by OfficeAnything.com
We're here to tell you, your office remodeling project doesn't have to be a headache! Creating the workspace of your dreams should be a fun and rewarding experience, not a nightmare. From drawing up a plan of attack to installation preparation, we've got the advice needed to put your biggest makeover fears to rest. With the simple tips, tricks, and product suggestions provided today on the OfficeAnything.com blog, you'll be on your way to a smooth transition into your new work space.

1.) Create A Plan

Ask any industry professional how to conduct a successful office makeover and they'll tell you, it all starts with a good plan! You'll want to first determine a budget for your project. Do a little comparison shopping online to check out products you feel will work well in your space. Do a cost analysis to figure out what you're willing spend to update your interiors. Sticking to a budget will help you avoid over extending your business. It will make you focus, determined, and prepared to conduct a more professionally run remodel.

How To Plan Your Office Project by OfficeAnything.comOnce you've set your budget, create a timeline for your project. If you don't determine an estimated time of completion, your project is likely to run for weeks upon weeks. This opens the door for mistakes, problems, and office makeover headaches that can be avoided with good planning. If you purchase in stock furniture from a brand like Mayline, OFM, or Cherryman Industries, you should be able to complete a full makeover in less than 2 weeks time. Made to order and custom products from brands like Global Total Office take approximately 4 to 5 weeks to manufacturer. Adjust your project timeline accordingly.

Last but not least, if you're going to use a professional installation service, plan in advance. Get the ball rolling by researching various assembly services in your area. We recommend getting 3 quotes to ensure you obtain the best value. When researching installation companies, be sure to inquire about their availability. Let them know about your project timeline to ensure they'll be available when your new furniture arrives. In many cases, professional installers will be willing to receive your furniture for you. This makes for a seamless transition and greatly reduces the risk of makeover nightmares!

Do Your Office Makeover Homework2.) Do Your Homework

A little research goes a long way! Take the time to visit a showroom in your area. Meet with the pros in person to gather industry information, inquire about the latest office trends, and research awesome product lines that will improve corporate appeal and functionality. Avoid rushing through your remodeling project at all costs. Do your homework up front to ensure you have all the information required to conduct a successful, problem free makeover.

Get To Know Your Office Furniture Dealer3.) Get To Know Your Dealer

Forming a good relationship with your office furniture provider will help ensure your makeover runs smoothly. Before purchasing your furniture, contact your dealer. While inquiring about current specials, deals, and bulk discounting opportunities you'll get a great idea of the level of customer service they provide. After you've bought the furniture needed for your business, make a follow up call. Ask abut estimated ship times and when tracking information will be made available. By generating friendly conversation, your dealer will be ready, willing, and able to help you create an awesome space in time, under budget, and over exceeding your expectations.

Create An Office Makeover Team4.) Assemble A Team

It never huts to get a little help! Trying to handle your dream project alone will almost certainly lead to a nightmare. A few coworkers willing to assist with shipment tracking, design ideas, space prep, and installation are invaluable. Don't assemble too large a team. Gathering too many opinions and helping hands can actually backfire. In most cases a team of 4 reliable people is plenty!

5.) Prepare For Installation

Before your new furniture arrives, you'll need to prep your space. Start with a thorough cleaning. Vacuum the floors, hit the walls with a magic eraser, dust, and windex. Once complete, consider applying a fresh coat of paint to make your new furniture pop once installed.

Well Designed Office Interior by OfficeAnything.comOnce your space is prepped, create a staging area for your new products when they arrive. Avoid taking all items into your office at once. This leads to an overcrowded, frustrating assembly process. With a dedicated staging area like a hallway, you'll be able to bring in pieces as they're needed. Clean, simple, effective!

Now that you've completed assembly and installation, you'll need to do a major clean up. Prepare in advance! Be ready to break down lots of boxes and dispose of ample bubble wrap. After coming out of the boxes, your new furniture and office seating will need a good wipe down. Tackle this final step with pride. You've successfully created your dream office space without creating a major nightmare!
