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.
