Whether you're the head of a major publishing company or a self-employed graphic designer, the look and feel of your personal office space and the environment that surrounds it both play a large role in your ability to complete major projects and day-to-day assignments. One of the simplest ways to spruce up your work environment and enhance its overall feel is to adjust the color palette. Earth tones like light brown, pale blue, and virtually any shade of green can inspire a sense of calm creativity as well as a feeling of comfort. Brighter shades like magenta and orange are appropriate choices for those wanting to infuse energy and excitement into their space without causing too much distraction.
You can incorporate color into your office environment with help from richly-hued office furniture as well as accessories like lighting and artwork. To find office desks and other styles of custom office furniture that will complement your professional color palette, come visit Office Furniture Expo Atlanta.

From bills and paperwork to sticky notes and markers, there are countless items that can find their way onto your desk during a busy work day. In order to keep them from overwhelming the space and leaving it in an unfavorable state for working, you should create an organizational system for your desk that is easy to maintain each day. To begin the process of organizing, clear everything from the desk and wipe it down using a cloth. Once it's clean, throw away non-essential items, and set vital documents—like tax statements—aside for storage.
Once you've found a place for items big and small, go online and switch bills and banking statements to paperless form in order to cut down on the amount of paper you receive each month. For more tips on keeping a tidy desk, be sure to check out this video.
If your desk has grown too small to hold all of the paperwork you handle each week, then replace it with a more suitable model from Office Furniture Expo in Atlanta. To learn more about our desks or any of our other office furniture, call (678) 894-1869.

Countless research studies have revealed that a well-designed floor plan and attractive office furniture can have a positive impact on employee productivity. A welcoming and innovative environment also encourages those working within it to think outside of the box and engage in more creative methods for solving a problem or completing a task. Here is a look at some office design essentials that can boost productivity in the workplace:
Natural Light Sources
One of the simplest ways to brighten up both the workspace and your employees' moods is to let some natural light shine in. Whether your office has two small windows or ten, make the most of the light that each has to offer by congregating office furniture within their vicinity and pulling open any blinds or window treatments while employees are working.
Open Spaces and Floor Plans
Another method for infusing productivity and energy into your office space is to arrange office desks, chairs, and work stations in an open floor plan that allows for greater collaboration amongst employees. While leaving several areas throughout the office untouched—to accommodate private phone calls and meetings—rework the main office space so that communication can be easily facilitated between coworkers and groups can work together to complete certain tasks.
Ergonomic Office Furniture
If your employees have recently begun to show signs of fatigue, disinterest, or a general lack of motivation, then you may want to exam just how comfortable their individual work spaces are. Replacing old, worn down office furniture with newer, more ergonomic models is one of the most effective ways to eliminate day-to-day aches and pains for employees, which will leave them feeling more alert and energized throughout the work week.
The furniture experts here at Office Furniture Expo Atlanta can help you pick out the perfect items to enhance the mood in your office. We carry a wide selection of both used and new furniture that is sure to fit both your budget and your taste. Call us today at (678) 894-1869 to learn more about our products and services.

In this day and age, it's common for employees to spend the majority of their work week sitting at a desk, typing away on a computer. In order to avoid the common physical problems that this type of work can bring about -such as eyestrain and neck aches- it's important that workers receive plenty of support throughout the day from comfortable office furniture that has been arranged in a logical manner. Here is a helpful guide to creating an ergonomic computer workstation:
Position Screens at Eye-Level
When choosing the perfect spot at your desk for a laptop or computer screen, think about where you will be sitting and which direction you will be facing. Screens should be placed directly in front of you and at an eye-level height that will allow you to simply look straight ahead to complete your assignments.
Use Helpful Devices like a Wrist Rest
If you've recently developed a strain in your wrist as a result of arching your hand to reach the keys on a keyboard, then it may be time to purchase a wrist rest. This simply device is placed directly in front of the keyboard to support your hand from pain brought on by overextension. It can also alleviate any contact stress that may develop as the edge of your office desk meets your hand or wrist.
Invest in a Height-Adjustable Desk
Each time you sit down to work at your desk, you should be able to type and write without raising your shoulders. Having to do so often means that your desk is simply too high for your height. One easy way to remedy this problem is to invest in an office desk that can be adjusted to fit your individual size. This is also an excellent option for those taller employees who could use a little extra space under the desk.
One key to creating an ergonomic work station is to purchase the right office furniture. Here at Office Furniture Expo Atlanta, we carry countless styles of desks, chairs, and tables that you can mix and match to create an inspiring and comfortable work space. Call us at (678) 894-1869 to find out how we can help you improve your residential or commercial office.

More than eight million tons of office waste are sent to landfills each year, and over a third of that waste is usable furniture! Often, office furniture is only lightly used before being replaced with different styles or thrown away after a company shuts its doors. Buying used office furniture is not only great for the environment, but also for your company’s bottom line. Used office furniture that looks and functions like new can be purchased at a fraction of the cost of new options. Take a look at this infographic from our Atlanta used office furniture store to find out more about how buying used is saving the environment. Feel free to share this information with coworkers and friends interested in smart shopping and sustainability.
