Building a Productive Workspace

Every employer wants to ensure that their office is as productive as possible. Allowing OFE to create a custom office layout for your business can be the best way to ensure that your employees have a comfortable and fruitful environment to work in. Here are some of the elements that the most successful office spaces share.

Quality furniture. Investing in quality chairs, desks, collaborative areas and conference tables for your employees will pay off many times over in terms of productivity. When your employees have comfortable, ergonomically designed chairs to sit in, they'll be much more likely to do good work. Buying quality furniture that will endure for many years also sends a message about your business' s commitment to professionalism.

Proper lighting. Lighting makes an enormous difference to employees' productivity. Bright fluorescent lights can be distracting, but relying too much on natural light from the windows can result in excessive dimness at times. Desktop LED and CFL lamps are a great choice for providing your workspace with efficient yet effective lighting throughout the day.

Thoughtful layout. It's important to put some thought into where those chairs, desks, and tables will go. Individual workspaces should have enough space between them that employees can get up and move around without disturbing their co-workers, but they ought to be close enough to allow for quick collaboration. Using Sit to Stand desks help foster productivity and creating a sense of openness in your workspace will help to foster a comfortable and confident work environment.

Office Furniture Care 101

If you have taken the time to purchase quality furniture for your office, it's only natural that you want it to look good for as long as possible. Fortunately, a good piece of furniture should last for many years—if properly cared for. Here are some essential guidelines for ensuring that your office furniture lasts and looks good too.

Be quick to clean up stains. If you spill anything on your furniture, blot up the spill with a paper or cloth towel right away. Even water can damage your furniture if it isn't cleaned up immediately, and other liquids such as alcohol can ruin the appearance of furniture very quickly. To reduce the chances of a spill, use coasters and place mats when eating or drinking on any office furniture.

Be wary of extreme temperatures swings. If possible, it's best to keep your office at a moderate temperature to protect your furniture. If a piece of furniture is kept in rooms that are either very hot or very cold, it can damage the furniture over time. Do not place office furniture right next to air conditioning or furnace vents, which can cause the wood to gradually dry out and crack. Do not place any office furniture in direct sunlight as this may "bleach" many finishes.

Wipe your furniture regularly. To prevent dust and debris from accumulating on the surface of your furniture, wipe down every piece with a soft, slightly damp cloth once a week. When cleaning wooden furniture, be sure that you always wipe in the direction of the grain. Avoid using commercial cleaning products, which may contain harsh chemicals that can stain your furniture's finish. Never use a mechanical buffer to "shine" a piece of furniture as many are designed with a "matte" or low-luster finish and an improperly used buffer may damage your furniture.

Office Layout Design - What's Best for You?

Choosing the right layout for your office is essential to ensuring that you have the most suitable environment for your workplace. There was a time when many office layouts were drab and monotonous, but that era is long past. Today, many businesses customize their offices to give their employees a setting that is as ergonomically comfortable and productive to working as possible. Here are some of the basic office layouts you might want to take into account as you plan your own.

Open office. An open office is designed as a free-flowing interior space without any barriers. There aren't any cubicles or even dividing walls. This type of layout is perfect for small offices where you need to maximize your available space, and they are also well-suited for professions where groups of people will be collaborating in close quarters. However, they may not be ideal for jobs where employees need to work in privacy and relative quiet.

Traditional office. A traditional office has separate spaces for every employee, usually with a door for every space. Traditional office layouts are well-suited to many types of jobs, particularly professions which require frequent phone calls or sensitive information. However, many businesses do not have the space to provide separate offices for all of their employees. It can also be impractical to add a new office space for each new addition to the staff, yet this type of layout works best for many businesses.

Cubicle-based office. Many offices solve the challenge of creating a separate space for every employee by using cubicles. Depending on the type of cubicle an office uses, this can make for a flexible and easily altered space that is practical for startups and other developing businesses. Cubicles allow for some degree of privacy, but are also conducive to quick meetings and ongoing collaboration.

Everything from the color of the walls to the quality of the office furniture matters. It's worth every business owner's time have a layout that will impress visitors with its professionalism while remaining comfortable. Here are some elements of your reception area that you shouldn't overlook.

Seating. Comfortable chairs are a must for any reception area. Make sure that you have enough chairs or sofas—and enough room—for as many visitors as you might expect on a busy day. Arrange them with plenty of open space between them so that your visitors are not sitting too closely to each other. If you have the space, you might also add some tables with power ports so visitors can charge their devices and magazines on them to give your visitors something to read while they wait.

Décor. Adding the right décor to your reception area can give it the perfect touch. Tastefully arranged potted plants, lamps, mirrors, framed art and other accessories will give your room a unique character that many waiting rooms lack. Don't be afraid to get creative and add the kind of furniture accessories you'll find at Office Furniture Expo's Showroom.

Colors. The color of your waiting room can have a surprising effect on the mood of the people there. For instance, soft blue and green shades tend to be calming and reassuring, which are suitable for most office environments. Whatever type of mood you aim to create in your reception area, it's important to take some time to think about the mood you wish to create for your customers and employees.

Questions to Ask Before Buying Used Office Furniture

When it is time to outfit your workspace, used office furniture can be a good way to make the most of your budget. A variety of types of used office furniture is available, from office seating to office storage, and with careful selection, no one what you will know that your furniture isn't new. At Office Furniture Expo, our huge selection of used furniture includes something for every office, and our design professionals are available to answer your questions. Here are some of the questions you may want to address as you make your furniture selections.

Why should I consider used office furniture?

Most people initially consider used office furniture for the savings, but there are other benefits as well. Used furniture is a great way for your business to go green. Each year, 8.8 million tons of usable office equipment, of which 34% is furniture, ends up in landfills in the U.S. That represents a tremendous waste of resources, which is then compounded by the additional loss of resources and pollution generated by creating new furniture. Deciding to buy used furniture is an eco-friendly solution and an easy way for your business to lessen its carbon footprint. Office Furniture Expo has sold over 15 million pounds of used office furniture since 1981.

Do you have matching items?

In many cases, you can easily put together a complete set of furniture with used pieces. Companies typically get rid of sets of furniture together, which means that matching items end up for sale at the same time. This means you can easily put together things like matching desks and chairs, filling cabinets, or conference tables and seating. Used furniture does not necessarily mean mismatched furniture.

How should I care for my furniture?

You can extend the life of your furniture even further by caring for it properly. Your office design professional can provide advice for caring for wood, fabrics, and other materials to reduce the toll of wear and tear on your pieces.

Office Furniture Expo has an enormous inventory of used office furniture in Atlanta that changes daily. We're happy to answer your questions about our selection. Call us today at (770) 455-0440 for more information.


Customizing your Workspace for Productivity

Office tables for your conference, breakroom or collaborative areas have to be functional, but that doesn't mean you have to compromise on style. With stock or custom table designs, you can create the perfect furniture for your needs and your office's overall aesthetic. When you're working with our office furniture design professionals, consider these ideas.

Experiment with Materials

Office tables of every type can be made in hardwoods, veneers, and composite laminates, so consider experimenting with materials to create a unique look for your office. If you are creating tables for an executive suite or a law firm, hardwood may be the right choice, but consider using a lighter color of wood than the traditional, dark woods usually seen in these businesses. If you have a creative firm, experience with different veneers or textures for tables that add to the vibrancy of your overall office design.

Customize Your Size Needs

One of the advantages of designing custom office tables is that you can get them in the perfect sizes for your firm's space. Instead of choosing cookie-cutter table sizes, choose a variety of sizes for different spaces in your office. For instance, choose a supersized conference table for office-wide meetings or client presentations and then a mixture of tables for people to work solo or in small groups. This approach allows you to maximize both your space and your efficiency.

Consider Your Company Culture

The tables and seats you have in your office have a tremendous impact on your company's culture. Think of the workspace you want to create when you are designing your custom tables. If you hope to encourage collaboration and teamwork, focus on the types of tables that welcome group sessions. If your office requires quiet, privacy and individual work areas, be sure that you don't inadvertently invite the opposite with the workspaces you design. Data ports and charging options can be added to any table you choose.
