If you’re opening a new office or are moving into a new office space, there are many factors you need to consider when picking the furniture. One factor you need to consider is if you want to buy new or recycled furniture. While new furniture may look flashy and nice, recycled furniture typically costs 30 to 50 percent less than the newer furniture. There are many types of recycled furniture you can purchase. These include:
- Re-manufactured furniture – A piece of furniture is considered re-manufactured when it has been restored to its original state or condition. This is as close to having new pieces of furniture as you can get in terms of fabrics, colors, and construction.
- Refurbished furniture – This type of furniture is similar to re-manufactured except for the fact that it usually has just been cleaned, painted and in some cases replace the fabric that is on the furniture. Even though it hasn’t gone through an as rigorous process as re-manufactured furniture, it still has that new furniture feel.
- Reused furniture – When furniture is reused, it basically is the “as-is” of the used furniture world. There are no special processes used on the furniture and anything you wish to have done to it will have to take place after the fact.
Or if you don’t feel satisfied with those options, you can always opt to buy new furniture. The type of furniture you purchase can display what kind of power a manager or an executive has around their office. If the furniture you purchase looks high class, your employees will feel like they’re working for a high class institution. Your furniture gives out a vibe and will determine how your employees and clients see you, so it’s important to choose the right furniture.
