Small businesses don't necessarily have small personalities. To keep your workplace comfortable, efficient, and just as creative as you are, we've compiled a few of our favorite office furniture tricks.
Beauty on a Budget
If you're a small business, then the chances are high that you don't have a huge budget for decor. That doesn't mean you need to skip out on comfortable, inviting, and ergonomically correct office furniture, though. You can get all that beauty (and comfort!) on a budget--as long as you know what your priorities are, that is!
First, here are some quick tips to help you get started:
- Start with square footage. You don't want to go overboard and make your workspace crowded, but you also don't want to end up feeling like the room is half-empty.
- Prioritize storage. Furniture needs to be both attractive and functional, so look for pieces with built-in storage.
- Break the rules. Don't feel like you need to follow any office furniture "rules." Try something new to match your business's unique personality!
Now that you've got a few tricks up your sleeve, here are a few suggestions for choosing and placing office furniture!
Keep cubicles interesting and fun with staggered placement and glass dividers to keep employees from feeling "cut off." Remember, you can always encourage a little bit of a personal touch with photos or potted plants.
When it comes to functional furniture, there's nothing more important than an ergonomically correct office chair, an efficient desk, and plenty of alternative options--like, for example, sit-stand desks.
You may not have a traditional conference room in your small business, but you can make any gathering space feel like a creativity hot-spot by placing one big, welcoming table and plenty of comfortable chairs. Try to put the focus on collaboration by paying careful attention to how you set up the space.
