Office Remodeling FAQ: 2018 Edition

Office Remodeling FAQ

When the time comes to remodel your office interiors, you'll no doubt have questions. It's totally understandable. Office makeover projects require attention to detail, proper budgeting, and effective space planning. Today we'll be answering the most commonly asked questions to help you better understand what products are trending and how best improve your professional interiors. Enjoy!

Q: What furniture finishes are trending?

This year you can't go wrong with gray or white! Popular tones from Mayline like Gray Steel, Textured Driftwood, and Sea Salt set this trend in motion. Brands like Global and Business Business Furniture also offer fashionable white and gray finish options to consider for your makeover projects.

Q: What desk collections are most popular?

No desk collection has been more popular in 2018 than Studio C from Bush Business Furniture. As mentioned above, gray and white finishes have been incredibly popular in 2018. This collection offers both! If you're remodeling larger work areas, you can't go wrong with a collection like Zira from Global. Shoppers on a budget will want to check out collections like Amber from Cherryman Industries and Superior Laminate from Offices To Go.

Q: What office chairs are best for all day support?

2018 has been all about responsive chairs with weight sensing mechanisms. That probably sounds a bit confusing, but it's really not. Today's best office chairs are designed to minimize the need for adjusting while simplifying the ergonomic learning curve. Check out chairs like the Sora and Spritz from Global. They're

Q: How can I make my interiors more "ergonomically correct"?

Height adjustable office furniture and accessories are the way to go. If you're content with your current furniture, consider adding a desktop riser like the Volante station from Systematix. It will help transform your desk into a sit to station that's ready to adapt at a moments notice to keep you active. Accessories like sit to stand keyboard trays and monitor arms are also nice additions that are rapidly becoming the industry standard.

Q: How can I get the most out of my conference room?

A modular table configuration will help you get the most out of your square footage. Connectable tables offer the ability to create effective layouts regardless of group size. Additionally, you'll want to consider sleek chairs that don't take up a ton of space. Popular options like the Flip nesting chair from Eurotech are cost effective and practical. Last but not least, consider powering up your conference room. A universal module that can be placed on top of your table with USB inputs will really come in handy. We recommend the FlexCharge9 from ESI.

Q: What tables and chairs are best for training room applications?

When it comes to training room remodeling projects, it's all about maximizing space and encouraging collaboration. You simply can't go wrong with flip top tables and nesting chairs. Traditionally fixed leg tables without wheels will always have a place in the business world, but flip top models are far more versatile. Check out the Terina tables from Global, as well as their Roma nesting chairs.

Q: Is sit to stand furniture really worth the investment?

Absolutely. Sit to stand furniture will help you stay active while reducing fatigue. As sitting for long periods of time can actually shorten your life span, height adjustable office products are a must consider. They're the way of the future. Popular desk collections like Studio C from Bush Business Furniture offer electric sit-stand desk configurations with push button controls. They're taking over interiors!

Q: What are some good cubicle alternatives?

Open concept workstations and benching systems are rapidly replacing traditional panel furniture layouts. With high wall panels, employee interaction is restricted. Alternatively, open concept workstations and benching systems encourage collaboration. The SideBar II collection from Global and the Easy Office collection from Bush are our favs.

Q: What office furniture manufacturer should I choose?

It's true that not all office furniture manufacturer's are created equal. You'll want to select new furniture from a reputable brand that backs their products with factory warranties and good customer service. We recommend purchasing new office furniture from brands like Bush Business Furniture as they offer professional installation services to help simplify your remodel. Brands like Global and Cherryman Industries are also top notch.

Global G1 Ergo Select Chair

The G1 Ergo Select chair is all about performance. Sure they look good, but comfort is what really matters. Global approached this seating line with the thought that not everyone can use the same chair effectively. While one top of the line ergonomic chair my be comfortable for you, it might not be suitable for a different body type. G1 answers the call with the ability to customize nearly every components.

G1 Ergo Select Task Chair

Starting from the ground up, you'll be able to select from black and polished aluminum bases. Global's patented Soft Descent pneumatic lift system is standard and connects to your choice of a synchro-tilt, multi-tilt, or weight sensing mechanism. We personally preferred the weight sensing mechanism as it does most of the adjusting for you!

Moving right along, users will be able to choose from 3 seat sizes, back heights, and arm styles to meet their operational needs. Computing healthy in this chair is a breeze. The G1 Ergo Select task chair is an absolute pleasure to sit in.

Out of the box office chairs may be cheap, but they're a one size fits all solution to comfort. If you're looking for something more refined, there's no better option in 2018 than G1.

G1 Ergo Select Features

By now you might be thinking, "these chairs must be pretty expensive". By industry standards, they're very competitive. The most affordable chair from this collection is the 6331 model with a mid back design. It comes standard with adjustable arms and an adjustable lumbar support for comfort. You'll also have a choice of mechanism at no additional charge. Upgrading the arms will add $50.00 at most with the polished alumni base adding $60.00 if you're looking for something a bit more flashy than black. In our opinion, the G1 is worth every penny. In a world filled with sub-par chairs claiming to be "ergonomic" the G1 is ready to raise the bar.

When Remodeling Your Office Interiors, Don't Forget The Break Room!

breakroom remodeling tipsAll too often, the office break room serves as a catch-all for old furniture and seating that does little to help employees relax during downtime. When remodeling office interiors, the break room is typically the last space on your mind, but it shouldn't be. A well designed break room with good flow will encourage employee collaboration while reducing stress. Today on the blog we'll highlight the makeover tips and product suggestions needed to create an awesome break room on a budget. Enjoy!

First things first, you've got to do a little space planning. Measure your break room to determine how much room you have to work with. Take note of power outlets, doorways, and windows that will affect how your furniture is situated. With a good idea of square footage, you can determine how many tables and chairs will fit effectively without making your break room feel overcrowded.

Before rushing out to shop for new tables and chairs, it's a good idea to set a budget. You can find commercial quality break room tables for sale between $250.00 and $500.00 depending on size. The price spectrum on break room chairs is very wide. Some easy to clean plastic stack chairs can be purchased for less than $100.00 each. Doing a little preliminary research will help you determine what products you'll need and how much you should expect to spend.

Now it's time to get inspired! Since the break room is all about the employees, take the time to ask what features they'd like to see incorporated into the space. You can also visit social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram. They'll give you a ton of good ideas on how to get the most out of your square footage while simultaneously boosting corporate appeal.

You'll want to officially kick off your remodel by purchasing tables and chairs. You can keep things classic with round tables like the CA36SLB from Mayline, or go a bit more bold with a standing height table with swivel out seats like the 9004 model Endure from OFM. It's even got integrated power ports n the surface. While a bit more expensive initially, you won't have to invest additional funds in chairs. The Endure table is our favorite option for break room applications. The 4 seat model is available for $942.99.

Best Selling Break Room Tables:

  • CA36SLB from Mayline
  • Endure from OFM
  • Mobi from Berco
  • Bakhita from Global

Once you've selected tables for your space, it's time to find seating. In most cases, plastic stack chairs will do the trick. They're durable, easy to clean, and don't cost a small fortune. Upholstered office chairs are not recommended in high traffic areas that are subject to spills.

Best Selling Break Room Chairs

  • Duet by Global
  • Aire by Eurotech
  • Escalate by Mayline
  • Smart Series by OFM

With tables and chairs selected, you've laid the foundation for your space. Now it's time to accent and accessorize. We recommend starting with the essentials. Visit your local home store to pick up a coffee machine and toaster oven. You might also consider picking up some new silverware.

As far as aesthetic accents go, you can't go wrong with coffee shop themed wall art. Strive to maintain a simple, professional, and practical vibe with your remodel. There's no need to go over the top with modern area rugs and wall sconces.

The one splurge item you might want to consider for your break room is a flat screen TV. It will turn your space into a destination area where employees can congregate during down time. The ability to watch the news and sports will boost morale.

Now it's time to clean out your current space. Remove old furniture and clean out cabinet drawers. The refrigerator probably needs a little love too. With your space cleared, you'll be able to lay on a fresh coat of paint. In an ideal situation, your break room will be cleaned and ready to receive new items on the day they arrive!

The Beginners Guide To Conference Room Remodeling

Beginners Guide To Conference Room Remodeling
Are you about to take on a conference room makeover project? You're in the right place. Today on the blog we'll teach you the tips and tricks needed to maximize your square footage, improve productivity, and boost corporate appeal. Our 'Beginners Guide To Conference Room Remodeling' shares the basic information needed to get the most out of your space without breaking the bank. Enjoy!

Step 1: Space Planning

First things first, you've got to properly measure your space. All successful office remodeling projects start with proper space planning. If you skip this step, you'll just be rolling the dice and hoping for the best. Start obtaining the perimeter dimensions of your conference room. Be sure to take note of all entry ways, power outlets, windows, and room obstructions that will affect the way your components are situated. Once complete, sketch out your space on paper and make a few copies. Try drawing in a few layout ideas to see what will work best for your business in terms of flow and functionality.

Step 2: Get Inspired

You don't want to rush out and buy the first conference table you see. All good designers get inspired before their projects! Start by visiting a furniture showroom in your area. This will give you a good idea on pricing and the pieces needed to complete your space. Take your quest for inspiration online. Social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram are invaluable when looking for good ideas to incorporate into your project.

Step 3: Set A Budget

Remodeling a conference room can be very expensive if you're not careful. Right about now, you're probably wondering how much it will cost to complete the job. Don't worry, we've got you covered. Shoppers typically choose an 8 to 10' conference table depending on their needs. They'll also need between 6 to 10 chairs, a wall cabinet, and presentation board. All in, most conference room remodeling projects cost between $2500.00 and $5000.00. Set a budget for your business before you start shopping.

4 Ways To Maximize Your Conference Room Remodeling Budget:

  1. Select furniture from a full service collection. This will cut down on shipping costs and time while helping you avoid mix-matching components from various brands.
  2. Find free shipping. There's plenty of furniture providers out there (like us) that are willing to absorb shipping costs to earn your business.
  3. Buy out of state. We know it's important to shop local, but conference room furniture is pretty expensive. If you buy online from an out of state vendor you won't have to pay sales tax. The savings can be substantial on a big project.
  4. Inquire about bulk discount pricing. If you're purchasing a new table, chairs, and accessories or your space, the order may qualify for extra savings. Contact your dealer direct about quantity deals and ways to save. You might just get yourself a coupon code!

Step 4: Select Your Table

Now it's time for the fun stuff! When selecting a new conference table for your space, the first question you need to ask is: How many people do I need to host? On average you'll want to allow for 3 feet of table space per person. For example, a 12' long conference table can comfortably accommodate 4 people per side and 1 addition person on each end of the table. We also recommend selecting a table with basic power options. Having inputs on the surface of your table really come in handy during meetings. Today's conference tables with USB inputs have really become an industry standard.

Popular Conference Table Collections:

  1. Zira by Global
  2. Medina by Mayline
  3. Amber by Cherryman Industries
  4. Superior Laminate by Offices To Go
  5. Series C by Bush Business Furniture

Step 5: Select Your Chairs

The conference room seating you select will play a key role in visitor comfort and the amount of operating space available. We highly recommend skipping overstuffed executive style conference chairs if you're tight on space (which most businesses are). Opting for sleek Euro style conference chairs will help you create a fashionable space that's on trend without sacrificing comfort. You might also consider going with flip seat nesting chairs like those found in commercial training areas. They're very supportive, less expensive, and offer space saving benefits that can't be overlooked.

Popular Conference Seating Lines:

  1. Accord by Global
  2. Valore by Mayline
  3. Eon by Cherryman Industries
  4. Flip by Eurotech Seating
  5. Joplin by Woodstock Marketing

Step 6: Accessorize

No conference room is complete without a few key accessories. Enhance your space with components designed to improve productivity and appeal. We recommend starting with a wall cabinet  to keep your important presentation materials well organized. The wall cabinet can also be used as a food and beverage station for guests. From there you'll want to consider a white board cabinet or mobile presentation board. They come in handy when good ideas are being tossed around. Last but not least, consider installing a smart TV to help with multi-media presentations. When it comes to conference room accessorizing, start small. You don't need to over do-it. Meeting areas can tend to feel overcrowded when too many components are added.

Step 7: Shipping & Installation

The most difficult part of your project will be the shipping and installation portion. The good news is, it's really not that bad if you plan ahead. Once your furniture is ordered, work with your dealer to determine a ship date. This will give you a window of time to prep your space by removing old furniture, patching walls, and painting.

On the day your furniture is scheduled to ship, call to obtain tracking information. This will help you guide in your furniture. You'll probably want to enlist the help of at-least 4 people including yourself to help with off-load and assembly.

Don't bring all of the big boxes into your space. Create an open area to stage components. Bring them into your conference room one-at-a-time for assembly. This will avoid overcrowding your space. Slowly piece together your conference room as envisioned. Before you know it, you'll be up and running.

Conference table assembly is pretty basic. You'll pretty much be attaching the legs to the top and flipping the table over. Seating assembly will seem daunting at first, but it's really not too bad. The first chair will take you around 30 minutes to assemble, but after that you'll have a better understanding of how to do it and assembly will speed up. Have basic tools on hand to help will assembly. A furniture dolly, cordless drill, screwdrivers, and allen wrenches are a must.

Featured Product: Focal Sphere Desk by Safco

Safco Ergonomic Furniture ReviewWhen it comes to ergonomic furniture, Safco knows their stuff. This reputable brand takes pride in crafting the adjustable office furniture needed to encourage healthy operating habits and good posture. Take one look at their Focal Sphere desk and you'll see what you mean. This standing height workstation offers an unbeatable combination of style, functionality, and versatility.

Focal Sphere DeskAt first glance, the LET-1000 Focal Sphere adjustable standing desk from Safco looks a bit like a drafting table. The heavy duty metal base with spindle crank works with a concurred work surface to create a spacious workstation that's got wow factor to spare. The Sphere desk offers a cool combination of modern and industrial flair that's sure to catch the eye of any visitor.

ergonomic deskThis popular desk is about far more than good looks. The Sphere runs circles around the competition in terms of functionality and performance. The 78" top provides the user with plenty of room for equipment while the height adjustable design makes it easy to transition between sitting and standing to remain active throughout task filled work days.

Now let's talk specifics. The desk top is made with 13-layer, .75" thick hard-plywood for strength and durability. This height adjustable workstation is available in a choice of 2 laminate finishes and 2 higher end veneer options. The powder coated aluminum cup holders come in very handy. We find that most use these for stationary as opposed to beverages.

best standing deskThis Safco desk can do it all. The Sphere is a must consider fro office, home, and school use. The importance of sit to stand furniture cannot be under estimated. Desks like the Sphere encourage continuous movement to keep muscles engaged and fatigue at bay.

The ability to customize your work experience quickly and efficiently is what sets the sphere apart from most of the adjustable standing desks on the market today.
