Deciding to replace your current office furniture can be a tedious and time-consuming process. You want comfortable, attractive pieces that will make everyone happy, but without breaking the bank. Your employees will have to use this furniture eight hours a day, five days a week, for the next several years, so you definitely don’t want to make any mistakes. When it comes to buying new office furniture, there are four common mistakes that people tend to make.
Test it Out First!
How do you know how comfortable that chair you saw online really is unless you try it out? Manufacturers can say whatever they want about a piece of furniture’s comfort, but what’s comfortable for one person may not be comfortable for the next.
Don’t Impulse Buy!
Sure, impulse buying might be fun when it’s just a new outfit, but furniture is a much bigger decision that needs to be carefully weighed and considered. Do your research and get feedback from your employees – after all, they’re the ones who are going to be using it. Make sure the office furniture you’re purchasing will meet all of your needs, don’t simply pick based on the one that looks good.
Comfort Over Looks
Again, that chair might look great and match your office design perfectly, but if your employees can’t stand to sit in it all day long, then it was a total waste of money! It is possible to find trendy and attractive furniture without sacrificing comfort, you just need to look for it!
You Can’t Put a Price on Comfort
You may be tempted to simply buy the office furniture that will save your company the most money. However, what costs less in the beginning can actually cost you more long-term. Not only will cheap furniture be more likely to break down and wear out, but if it’s not comfortable, it can cost you money in the form of unhappy and unproductive employees.
