Have you noticed a lack of creativity from your employees? You can help them hone in on their creativity skills by completing office remodeling. With the right office interior design, you and your employees can reap the benefits of better work productivity and higher quality work environment.

When formulating a new interior design, you need to gather information about your work culture and the work tasks you and your employees will regularly perform. You will want an interior design that’s impressive to clients, guests while providing your staff a comfortable work environment. It is recommended that you use modern furniture in your office layout. Why? The mood and productivity of your workers depends on how your office workers feel about you and the company. When employees feel good about their boss, co-workers and work environment, they are willing to put more effort into their work.

The most in-demand office furniture items for the modern office are ergonomic chairs and desks. Stylish and spacious storage/ cabinets are second to ergonomic furniture. American design can provide you a wide range of quality filing cabinets, desks and chairs for your business. For state-of-the-art business settings, we recommend business owners purchase desks and storage units that securely hold electronic devices.

You can never go wrong with fine wood furniture. For creative jobs such as copywriting, purchase unconventional office furniture such as oval desks or office desks that use recycled material. But more importantly, you cannot forget to provide your office space good lighting. When an office is well lit and a low-stress atmosphere, you can reduce the likelihood that your employees will experience work anxiety. Don’t make your employees feel like inmates every time they come to work. Give them something to be happy about. Provide them comfortable and creative workspaces.

Here are some pointers to make the most out of your office space:

  1. Have an area designed for collaborative work and an area for individual work. Quiet zones do wonders for companies in need of more concentrated work areas.
  2. Place iconic objects on the desk of workers to promote your brand and establish a fun atmosphere within the work environment.
  3. Design office spaces with you’re the work behavior of your employees in mind.

The Benefits of Restored Furniture

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

Why should you restore your old office furniture with American Design Associates? We’ve got plenty of good reasons, and they might make you think twice about buying expensive new office furniture.

First, the line that all businesses are interested in, that is, the bottom line. Restoring your old office furniture saves you money. New furniture is expensive. Our restoration services are not only reasonably priced, but they also do a very good job at restoring your old office furniture to its former glory. Even if your office furniture is beyond restoration, it could be repurposed for use as a new piece.

Another reason to consider restoring your old office furniture is for the environmental benefits. Office furniture uses a lot of high quality wood, and you can slow the use of this wood by simply getting your old furniture restored. Restoration is a great way to reuse resources that are already available instead of using new ones. Not only that, but new furniture requires more energy to make than it does to restore furniture, meaning less CO2 is released into the atmosphere. For example, providing new furniture for a 100 room hotel would release about 125.32 tons of CO2 into the atmosphere. By comparison, restoring the old hotel furniture would only release 1.24 tons of CO2. That’s a huge difference, and really speaks to the environmental friendliness of restoring furniture.

If your Baltimore office is thinking about buying new furniture, first consider furniture restorations services from American Design Associates. You’ll be doing your wallet and the environment both a great favor.
