Office Design Ideas: The Bistro Break Room

Break Room Makeover Ideas
Let those old plastic cafeteria tables hit the road! It's time to make your office break room shine. As one of the most commonly used work spaces, your break room can be quickly, easily, and affordably transformed into a super cool multi purpose area where valued employees can gather and collaborate during down time. Don't let your break room become an afterthought during the office makeover process. This valuable space helps boost morale and team interaction. Today on the blog, we'll highlight cool ways to turn your break area into a bistro themed work of art that's built for productivity. Enjoy!

OFM Endure Series Powered Table for Break RoomStart your break room makeover project by selecting cool tables that go wth the bistro theme. Brands like OFM and Mayline offer the best dining and bar height bistro table models on the market. To fully transform your interior, you'll need a combination of both to meet the needs of all visitors.

This year, OFM Endure series have been a favorite of industry professionals and interior design teams. These high tech tables with industrial appeal boast powered surfaces that limit downtime in the break room. These incredibly versatile and heavy duty tables are built to last. They also come standard with swivel out seats to help cut makeover costs.

Mayline Bistro Table
If you're not feeling the retro look, check out Mayline Bistro Table models like the CA30SHS. These square top tables with metal bases are well built, stylish, and budget friendly. At just $251.99, the CA30SHS bar height bistro table provides unmatched value. Matching dining height models are also available.

Once you've selected tables for your space, focus on guest comfort and efficiency. You can combine both of these key design elements with restaurant style bar stools with plastic seating surfaces that are easy to clean.

White Bar StoolThe new Cherryman Industries Pommerac series bar stools are a great way to go. A white bar stool from this popular new collection will provide a neutral look that's sure to compliment any wood and metal finish you choose to integrate into your project. Pommerac stools provide a comfortable sit, space saving design, and support users up to 250 pounds. They are available in 2016 for $201.50 each.

Lobby Remodeling Q & A with OfficeAnything.com

Lobby Makeover TipsTaking on a lobby makeover project? We've got you covered! In today's post we'll tackle the most commonly asked lobby design and makeover questions to help you complete your project successfully. Enjoy!

Q: How should I begin my lobby remodeling project?

All successful office makeover projects start with proper space planning. Start by obtaining the perimeter dimensions of your space. Be sure to note the location of all entry ways, power outlets, and windows that will affect your furniture layout. Once you've got your dimensions, double check them. There's nothing worse than purchasing beautiful new furniture, only to find that it doesn't fit properly.

Q: What are the latest lobby makeover trends?

You'll no doubt want to keep your space up to date with the latest trends. This year, tablet arm chairs have been incredibly popular. As businesses look to improve the guest waiting experience and create positive impressions on visitors, powered lounge chair models like the Morph and Serenity from OFM have also been on top sellers. In addition, gray and cream leather upholstery options have been in high demand.

Q: How much should I spend on my project?

Before setting a budget for your lobby remodel, you'll want to do a cost analysis. Check out lobby seating, tables, and room accents online to get a good idea on price. Determine how many guests you'll want to accommodate at any given time. This will give you a good idea on how much you'll be spending. On average, smaller lobbies with around 8 seats can typically be remodeled for around $2,500.00. A larger lobby designed to accommodate 25 or more guests can cost $5,000.00 or more depending on the furniture you choose.

Q: How can I extend my makeover budget?

There's lots of awesome ways to save big on new lobby furniture. You'll want to start by searching for  new products online using a comparison shopping engine like Google Shopping. Here you'll be able to quickly sort products by price and manufacturer. Next, look for a dealer that's willing to provide you with free shipping. Delivery costs can really eat into your budget. Additionally, you'll want to contact various furniture providers to inquire about bulk discount pricing, coupons, and current specials to help you save. Sure you can browse the web for coupons, but it's much faster to just call.

Q: What are the top lobby furniture manufacturers?

As you'll no doubt want to avoid cheap knock offs and imitation products that aren't built to last, knowing the best brands will help ensure quality throughout your project. Lesro Industries offers the largest selection of professional lobby furniture collections on the market. With modern and traditionally styled collections available, you'll have no trouble finding the guest seating and room accents needed to successfully furnish your space. Additionally, Global Total Office provides high end lounge style furniture, guest chairs, accent tables, and beam chair solutions that can be customized in stunning upholstery options. If you want the absolute best for your space, give Global Total Office furniture a look. Their products typically take 3 to 4 weeks to manufacturer, so plan accordingly! Both Mayline and OFM also deserve honorable mentions. These industry leaders provide lots of trend setting lobby furniture.

Q: How long should my project take to complete?

This question is directly related to the stock status of the products you choose to purchase for your space. If you select in stock products, they should ship out within about 2 business days of order. Transit times typically run about 5 to 7 business days depending on your location. Made to order products usually take around 3 to 5 weeks to manufacturer and transit times are about the same. In addition to the shipping of your lobby products you'll want to allot about 5 days for space planning and design. Lastly, plan for about 3 days of space prep, assembly, and installation. The average project done with in stock products should take between 2 to 3 weeks to complete successfully.

Q: Should I do my own installation?

If you're lobby area is on the small side, installation should be a breeze. Most guest chairs, sofas, and lounge chairs ship fully assembled. This means you should only have to unbox them and place them in position. If you've added end tables or a coffee table basic assembly may be required, but it's nothing to be afraid of. If you decide to take on installation here are a few tips to help...

  • Create a staging area to rest furniture before it's assembled and brought into your space.
  • Patch walls and paint your space before new furniture arrives. 
  • Furniture is well packaged. Prepare to dispose of multiple boxes and lots of packaging materials.
  • Have basic tools and a first aid kit on hand.
  • Have at least 3 individuals ready to help and assist you with installation.

If your space is larger, hiring the pros is probably the best way to go. You'll want to provide your local furniture installation company with a list of items you're considering purchasing to have an idea on cost. The installation company will often be able to have your products shipped directly to them. They'll then be able to bring over your new furniture fully assembled and ready to be situated in it's new home. Professional installation will eliminate a lot of headaches and hassles that are commonly encountered on larger projects. If you ask us, it's well worth the investment.

Office Ergonomics: Get Serious About Your Sit!

Office Chair Posture and Sitting TipsTo operate at peak performance levels in the workplace, you've got to take your sit seriously. Taking a set it and forget it approach, just won't cut it. Today on the blog, we'll teach you how to select the right office chair, improve your posture, and achieve top notch comfort during those stressful days at work. Enjoy!

We've said it once and we'll say it again, office comfort starts with YOU! If you're truly looking to improve comfort, you've got to analyze your areas of personal DIScomfort. Take the time to meet with a physician or chiropractor. Their ergonomic advice and sitting tips are invaluable. That being said, you'll need to select an office chair that's ready for the demands of the modern work day.

Don't rush out and break the bank on the most expensive chair you can find. A high price tag doesn't indicate that a chair will be more comfortable. Instead, focus on finding the RIGHT chair for your personal needs.

Visiting a showroom will certainly help. You'll be able to quickly and effectively test a wide range of ergonomic seating solutions from multiple manufacturers. If there's not a showroom in your area, browse the web for demo videos and product reviews. Here at the OfficeAnything.com blog, we review multiple chairs every month! Our goal is to help our visitors make the most educated ergonomic decisions possible, and we're not alone. The seating community takes great pride in helping shoppers get serious about their sit. If you have chair related questions, don't hesitate to ask. The pros are always ready to lend a hand.

When you've settled on a new office chair for tasking and computing in the workplace, be sure to master it's features. Even the fanciest chairs are only as good as their owners. Take your sit seriously by taking your chair seriously. Read the manual thoroughly and memorize the functions each lever on the mechanism is intended for.

Selecting the right office chair is only half the battle. Those looking to take their sitting seriously need to focus on forming good posture habits. First and foremost, you need to be willing to adjust at a moments notice. Those who settle, suffer. Be proactive about comfort and adjust your chair back, height, and arms regularly to meet the needs of daily tasks.

It's important to keep your back in contact with the chair at all times. Each time you lean away from the back of your chair, you're missing out on support. Be ready to adjust the angle at which your chair sits throughout the day to stay properly supported.

Raise or lower your chair to ensure you're able to keep your feet planted flat on the ground and facing forward. Don't prop your feet up on the base of your chair. It's not a foot rest. Don't extend your legs out in front like your sitting in a recliner watching your favorite movie. Sitting with your feet flat and forward is the only way to go!

Adjust your chair arms regularly to compute at the correct angles. Computing at incorrect angles will cause hand and wrist pain that results in diminished productivity. Nearly all of 2016's most popular office chairs come standard with arms that raise and lower at the touch of a button.

If you have trouble remembering sitting advice and posture tips, you're not alone. During those busy days at the office, the angle at which your chair sits is likely the furthest thing from your mind. To help stay on top of your posture and sit, place a list of posture reminders within eye site of your computer screen. Studies have shown that this simple practice yields big time results.

The quest for the perfect sit is never complete. Mastering your office chair, focusing on good posture habits, and integrating new ergonomic office accessories will certainly help, but there's always room for improvement. Work with your coworkers to address ergonomic improvements and win the battle against discomfort!

How To Create A Well Rounded Workspace

When designing your office, style, comfort and performance should all be top goals you strive to achieve. Today on the OfficeAnything.com, we'll teach you how to do just that. Here we're sharing the tips, tricks, and products you'll need to take to create a well rounded workspace. From selecting the right furniture collection to outfitting your interior with ergonomic accessories, todays advice is a must. Enjoy!

1.) Select A Collection

Selecting Office Furniture

Avoid mix matching furniture at all costs. Picking random pieces from various lines will often result in design disappointment. To ensure high end appeal, select new furnishings from a full service collection. For the purposes of today's post we'll use the Mayline Medina collection. This trend setting line has made it's way to the top of the best sellers list in 2016. Medina products offer unmatched quality and craftsmanship that pairs extremely well with unique finish options like Gray Steel, Textured Sea Salt, and Mocha. It's a must consider for any modern office makeover project!

2.) Choose A Desk

Select An Office Desk

You'll want to start your project by selecting a desk that fits your space. Most collections like Medina offer 2 main sizes. Smaller 63" wide desks like the MNDS63 are perfect for interiors with limited square footage. If you've got a bit more space, consider going with a larger station like the MNDS72. This 72" wide desk offers plenty of operational space.

3.) Add A Credenza

Select An Office Credenza

Instantly create additional work surface space with the addition of an operational credenza. When choosing a credenza, you'll want to ensure you select one with the same width as your main desk to create a cohesive look. Your credenza should be placed behind your main office desk. The knee space underneath your credenza can be used to house file storage pedestals for document organizing and maximizing floor space.

4.) Connect With A Bridge

Medina Desk Extension

If more operating space is needed, connect your desk and credenza with a universal bridge! The addition of a bridge will give your main workstation a U shaped design that's incredibly popular. The non handed bridges from the Medina collection will allow you to create left and right handed U desk layouts. This means, if you move to a new office space, you don't have to purchase all new furniture if your station needs to open the opposite way. If you don't like the closed off feel of a U shaped desk, consider adding a desk extension for additional work surface space The Medina collection offers smaller extensions, as well as pedestal extensions to meet your personal interior needs.

5.) Improve Storage with A Hutch

Office Storage Hutch

Floor space is always at a premium! To avoid creating an overly crowded space, build up! Stack a hutch on top of your rear wall credenza to create an upscale executive look while simultaneously improving your organizational potential. Adding a hutch will provide you with much needed storage space. While you may not need it now, your needs will surely increase as your business grows. If you truly want to create a well rounded workspace, you'll need to plan for the future from day 1.

6.) Boost Comfort with A Chair

Select An Office Chair

Office comfort starts with the chair. When selecting an office chair for your space, consider your current areas of discomfort. The ergonomic features and dimensions of the chair you choose will greatly influence your long term effectiveness. We highly recommend consulting the pros before selecting your chair. You can watch demo videos online, read reviews, and test chairs at a showroom to help make an educated selection!

7.) Go Ergo with Accessories

Select Ergonomic Accessories

No well rounded office interior is complete without the addition of key ergonomic accessories! We recommend starting with the big three. An ergonomic monitor arm, retractable keyboard tray, and CPU holder will work together to help you become more efficient during those long days at the office. The monitor arm will increase your usable desk space while reducing visual strain. A retractable ergonomic keyboard tray will also increase usable desk space while helping you compute at correct angles. Last but not least, the CPU holder mounts directly underneath your work surface to create additional knee space. By getting your CPU off the floor, you'll also be less susceptible to theft and water damage. The right combination of ergo accessories is an absolute must. As some products are certainly more beneficial than others, do your research to determine which items will work best for your personal needs.

Improve Office Life by Starting Your Day Off Right!

How To Start Your Work Day Off RightLooking to become more productive and efficient in the workplace? If so, you've got to start your day on the right foot! Today on the OfficeAnything.com blog, we'll teach you how to do just that. From getting a good nights rest to organizing your workspace before leaving for the day, the difference is in the details! The tips and tricks here will have you up and running at top speed in no time.

It all starts with a good nights rest! If you stay up all night in your recliner watching old movies and eating snacks, your work day will suffer. Save those habits for the weekend. On work nights, treat yourself to a full 8 hours or quality rest. A regular sleep schedule will help you create the structure needed to start your days effectively. Most importantly, get up early enough to avoid rushing through your morning. This all too common practice causes stress that will imprint itself on your work.

Don't forget to eat breakfast. To help you remember, plan it out the night before. The less decisions you have to make in the morning the better. You'll no doubt want to indulge in fatty fast food breakfast treats, but do your best to avoid the temptation. Pack a piece of fruit, yogurt, and some granola to enjoy at your desk each morning. While it's not the most exciting breakfast, it won't leave you feeling overly groggy and in need of a nap the minute you get to work. A healthy and well rounded breakfast will provide you with the energy needed to make it through to your lunch break.

While eating your breakfast, try your hand at multi tasking by creating a plan for your day. It's best to stay busy and avoid extensive down time. When your bored at work, fatigue begins to set in. When fatigue sets it, productivity drops! A detailed daily plan will help you stay on track. Make a list of daily goals for your days. Assign each goal an estimated time of completion. As your morning gets underway, check off each task one by one for a little boost of motivation!

Ever heard of deskercise? It's a real thing! As sitting in your office chair for extended periods of time can actually shorten your lifespan, it's incredibly important to take short breaks every hour. While you might not be able to take a walk outside each time you need a break, you can definitely find the time to stretch at your desk! Simple deskercises involving your chair and office surroundings promote improved health, constant movement, and good blood flow that will help your day run smoothly.

Before you leave the office each day, you'll want to properly organize your space to ensure its ready to roll the next morning. Take the time to organize your file cabinet drawers and put away all the stationary that's currently taking up desk-top real estate. Water your office plants, take out the trash, clean glass surfaces, and vacuum. Cleaning at the end of the day is simple, but it yields big time results. When you return to a well organized space the following morning, you'll be more at ease and ready to tackle the demands of your rigorous work day.

Mayline RGE TablesThe ability to switch from sitting to standing positions with the push of a button makes RGE series tables very user friendly. Lot's of today's "top rated" sit to stand desks are overly complicated and difficult to use. While basic assembly is required, these new tables from Mayline will be up and running quickly. They help minimize the ergonomic learning curve while keeping you supremely functional in all situations.

There's not much you can't do with RGE. Connect multiple tables together and add monitor mounts to create multi user configurations. Use tables individually to create private training stations. The options are endless. In terms of criticisms, we wish their were a few more surface shapes to choose from. Competing Mayline table collections like ML offer L shaped and corner units that make it easier to create functional interiors when square footage is limited. Overall, we give the RGE collection 4 out of 5 stars. They will no doubt make their way onto best seller lists around the country. These tables are a must consider for any business looking to kick workplace ergonomics into high gear.
