Five ways to get great value from your office furniture

If you’re planning an office revamp this year or just want to make the best of your work space, we have some top tips to help you get the most from your office furniture.

At the end of the day, price isn’t the only consideration and there are other ways to realise the value of your items of office furniture.

Whether you want to transform just one office or the entire workplace, here are some tips on how to get great value from your office furniture:

Think ahead – you may just need one chair or a couple of extra filing cabinets now but what about that new member of staff starting next month or the meeting room that you’ve been thinking about updating for some time? By planning ahead rather than just satisfying your immediate needs you can save yourself money by buying in bulk and sticking to just one delivery fee, if this applies to your order.

Measure up – there is nothing more embarrassing than having office furniture delivered only to find that it is too small or too big to fit in the desired spot. It is always advisable to take measurements more than once or get two people to measure the same spot or item of furniture to ensure you’re being accurate when choosing furniture to fit. It is also worth considering access – how easy will it be to get larger items to their desired location? Will you need to use different doorways and is there anything that might block your way? By thinking about these logistical elements now you’ll save yourself time and stress once your furniture arrives.

Delivery – as well as thinking about the practicalities of delivery you will need to consider the cost. It might be you can get your office furniture cheaper elsewhere but if the delivery is expensive and takes a long time you may be better off buying from another provider. If you are planning refurbishment works prior to having your furniture delivered, then speak to your provider so that everything can be co-ordinated.

Added extras – Think about what else your office furniture supplier can provide – from colour swatches to office products and equipment to kit out your new work spaces.
