How Adaptable Office Furniture Can Help Your Startup

For today's office spaces, versatility is key. If you want to keep your new startup's work environment as productive as possible, it's smart to plan for easy reconfiguration of your office furniture. Adaptable, modular office furniture is becoming increasingly popular in startup office spaces because it is able to meet the ever-changing needs of the modern workplace. One day your employees might all be working in close collaboration, and the next day they may need to break off into small groups. When you have modular soft seats and tables, conference and training tables, benching systems with sit-to-stand included, you can easily reconfigure them to fit the day's working needs—and switch them back the next day, if you want.

Office Furniture Expo features a terrific selection of new and used office furniture at our Showroom in Atlanta. Our inventory is constantly changing, so you'll always find new items every time you visit us. To find out more, give us a call at (770) 455-0440.


Transform Your Work Space for Today's Business Environment and Employees

The workplace has changed radically over the last 20 years. Today's office spaces are far from closed-off or private office driven — they are innovative, versatile spaces that change to meet the needs of the individuals who work there. Custom designed office space and contemporary designs can help you make your workspace more efficient, more productive, and more comfortable for your customers and guests. Here are some recent trends that you might want to consider incorporating in your workspace:

Collaborative Workspaces. Some workspaces thrive through constant or intermittent collaboration. Benching systems and other furniture designs allow your employees to sit together and face each other whenever they need to collaborate. Adding these work areas to your office can be the perfect way to foster greater communication between the members of your team.

Open Areas. Taking regular breaks can help to promote a friendly and more comfortable work environment, but the breakroom spaces in many offices don't feel very welcoming. Open areas, which can include modular seating and collaborative furniture, make for a great addition to any modern workplace.

Sit to Stand Desks. Sitting all day can be bad for a person's posture and overall health—and it isn't necessarily conducive to a productive work environment. Sit to Stand ing desks allow your employees to take regular breaks from sitting while still being able to continue their work. If you want to foster a healthier, more productive work environment, sit to stand desks are a terrific option.

Dynamic Seating. The traditional workspace, in which every employee is assigned a permanent desk, has its advantages—but many modern offices promote a more casual atmosphere by eliminating assigned seating and allowing employees to sit wherever they like. In many cases, eliminating assigned seats can be a better fit for your company's culture.

If you're ready to transform your office space into a truly contemporary workplace, it's time to visit Office Furniture Expo. We offer hundreds of pieces of new and used furniture for you to select from at our showroom in Atlanta. Our team has been proudly serving the community since 1981.

The Importance of Light in the Workplace

No workspace can function well without the right amount of light. Well-illuminated spaces make it easier for your employees to stay focused and alert, and the proper lighting can even help foster creativity and inspiration. Wide windows are the easiest way to fill your workspace with light. If your workspace doesn't have many windows, consider rotating your employees' seats throughout the week to ensure that all of them get an equal amount of natural light. You can also invest in LED lighting, which is very close to natural light. When they are strategically placed in your office's ceiling, walls and desktops, LED lighting can make your entire workspace feel brighter, more open, and more conducive to a positive work experience.

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.

Welcome In - Inviting Ideas for Your Reception Area

Does your reception area say "welcome in" to customers? It's likely to be most visitors' first impression of your business. 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.

If you're ready to furnish your office with high-quality chairs, desks, tables, storage cabinets, and other workplace essentials, Office Furniture Expo can be your guide. We have a wide-ranging selection of new, used and custom designed office furniture at our Showroom in Atlanta. Visit us today or call (770) 455-0440 for more information.
