Things to Consider When Buying New Office Furniture

Buying new office furniture is an important task, and not one to be taken lightly. If you’re in the market for new office furniture, here are a few tips that will help you through the process, and ensure that you get the furniture that’s right for your office.

Make sure you have a plan in mind that details what kind of furniture you need, how it’s going to fit into your office, and how it will match the office’s theme. Take measurements to know exactly how much space you have to work with. Make a list of needed furniture and a budget that you’re willing to spend.

Compare Prices

There are a wealth of office furniture retailers, so you’ve got plenty of incentive to shop around. Check out prices online and in-store. Going in-store will give you a better idea of what the furniture actually looks like, as online pictures don’t always match up with the actual product. If you can afford to wait, see if you can take advantage of any promotions or sales that pop up.

Consider Refurbished Items

Office furniture varies in quality, like any product, but good office furniture is built to last. If you can find refurbished piece made by a good quality brand, you’ll likely pay a lot less for almost the same amount of longevity.


Office furniture can be expensive, and retailers may be willing to negotiate with you to get rid of some of their inventory. Negotiations are even more successful if you’re buying lots of furniture, or outfitting a whole office.


Make sure your purchase comes with a warranty. A warranty not only says that the item is a quality piece of furniture, but also that if something happens, the manufacturer will cover it.
