Congratulations on your decision to purchase furniture to outfit your office space. We realize that decision can sometimes be a difficult one to make when considering your budget. However, we hope to make the decision making process a much simpler one for you when choosing the specific furniture for your needs. The following are a few tips to help you along the way.
#1. Take Measurements
Before you visit a retail location to consider your options, we suggest you take measurements of your existing workspace. This is important in order to choose furniture that will fit properly into the desired space. Office furniture of all types will be available in a variety of sizes. Once you have these measurements in hand, a sales consultant can assist you in choosing correctly sized pieces that will not only fit within your space but will also meet your needs for the type of work you perform.
You may also consider creating a sketch of the workspace kind of like a simplified architectural blueprint. It can be a very crude hand drawn overhead view of your office on a piece of notebook paper, or, for you engineering types, a complex CAD printout with every detail drawn to scale. But whichever you choose, we recommend placing measurements of the overall workspace within the drawing. It would also be a good idea to include doorways, windows, or other areas of importance so they don't end up getting blocked by furniture. Take this drawing, or at least the basic measurements, with you to the furniture retailer when considering your purchasing options.
#2 Determine a budget
Before visiting an office furniture store, we strongly recommend you consider your budget. It is important to know how much you can afford to spend for furniture. When you arm yourself with this information and inform your furniture consultant, the two of you can work together as a team to find the right pieces, within budget, in a shorter time frame. This is definitely a way to utilize your time in a very efficient manner while shopping for furniture. It will help store personnel to direct you toward more specific items within a more narrow price range.
Most times, office furniture retailers will have a variety of options available in many different categories. Generally, there will be a very wide range of prices based on the size, type, features and quality of each type of new office furniture. But then there is also an excellent option for many customers who choose to purchase used office furniture. This can be a way to obtain excellent quality furniture at a drastically discounted price simply because it was previously owned.
#3 Determine your needs
What types of furniture do you need to place in your workspace in order to complete your tasks in an efficient and comfortable manner? Are cubicles absolutely necessary or would modular work stations be an option? Do you need a huge wrap-around desk with an attached hutch to store additional work materials? Or is all that extra desktop space unnecessary for you and you might be better suited with a smaller, less expensive desk and an additional bookcase or storage cabinet instead? You may already know exactly what your specific needs are. If so, make some notes of what you have in mind and discuss this with your sales professional.
If you're unsure about this or any other aspect of the choices available to you, stop by Capital Choice Office Furniture and speak with a workspace advisor who will assist you to identify what options are available to you. Some of those options may include a choice of work station or seating option that you wouldn't have previously considered and could cost significantly less than you originally planned.
Good luck and we hope we have helped you to make your choices easier.
