Top considerations for your next office furniture refresh

If an office furniture refresh is on the horizon or has been a long-term goal in your business, getting started shouldn’t be daunting. To help you on your journey, we’ve shared our top considerations for your next office furniture refresh.

Embrace Ergonomics

When it comes to office furniture, ergonomics should be at the forefront of your decision-making process. Ergonomic furniture is designed to support posture and movements to reduce discomfort. Ergonomic chairs with adjustable features, lumbar support, and proper cushioning ensure that your staff can maintain correct posture and work comfortably for extended periods. With more awareness of ergonomic furniture in workplaces, investing is worthwhile and can show your staff that their health and wellbeing are important, as well as the benefits this furniture provides for enhanced productivity. 

Our recent furniture fit-out at Douglas Partners included 9 new arch support chairs as ergonomics was an essential part of the decision-making process. With a high back, comfortable arms and adjustable lumbar and seat adjustments, staff can work in comfort whilst being supported.

Consider a desk upgrade

Sitting for prolonged periods can impact circulation, leading to fatigue, discomfort, and decreased productivity. To counteract these issues, a desk upgrade to a sit-stand desk could be a great option. These clever workstations allow staff to effortlessly switch between sitting and standing positions with the click of a button – allowing them to set 4 different height settings. 

For one customer, a sit-stand desk was a must-have for their busy office. By transitioning to new sit-stand desks they allow staff to decide.

Maximise storage

Office storage is important to organisation and efficiency, and while many documents are now stored digitally there is still a need for physical storage in business. Filing cabinets, desk drawers, shelving units and even lockers help store supplies, merchandise and more. There are different storage solutions that can be achieved for your specific needs, whether it’s a private office or shared working space.

For the team at Aury Australia, desk storage was essential, which is why we included sleek and sizeable drawers that fit seamlessly under desk.

Welcome customers with comfort

A reception area is one of the first impressions your customers will have of your business, which is why it’s worth making this space inviting and comfortable. As part of your refresh journey, consider the age, condition and importantly the aesthetic of furnishing in your reception area. Incorporating some changes can provide good impact that your customers and clients can appreciate.

A stylish and inviting reception area was important for Aury Australia and helps visitors feel comfortable as they waited for meetings and service. In this fit-out, we provided comfortable seating with side tables and brought the outside in with a stylish indoor plant.
