One of the perennial debates among office decision-makers concerning office furniture is whether the business should buy new office furniture, or just stick with/re-purpose old furniture.
In today’s world, the bottom line dictates all business decisions. If a move isn’t worth the investment in resources on the part of the company, then it won’t come to fruition. In the case of furniture, many businesses see sticking with old furniture as the better option, primarily as a cost-saving measure. And while it’s true that this may reduce costs in the short term, in the long term buying may be a better decision. Learn what the benefits of buying new office furniture are in this week’s blog.
The Benefits of Buying New Office Furniture
It’s More Comfortable
Furniture manufacturers are constantly innovating and stiving to find the most ergonomic, efficient, and comfortable designs for office furniture. If your office furniture is old and out of date, it might be holding you back more than you realize. Modern office furniture emphasizes efficiency and productivity, and is designed for the modern office space and modern technology. This is a major justification for the purchase of new furniture.
You Get a New Warranty
It’s likely that whatever warranty you have on your current office furniture is almost up, or has already expired. A new warranty is essentially insurance on your investment. If something does happen to the new product, a good warranty will allow you to replace it without incurring additional expenses. The same can’t be said for old furniture.
It’s Tax Deductible
The two words any business owner loves to hear. Small businesses can deduct the cost of new furniture as a business expense. Talk to your tax advisor for more information.
It Will Catch Your Clients’ Eyes
Clients who visit your office space will infer a lot about your company based on what they see. A client that sees you’re upgrading your space with new furniture will see that you’re willing to make investments in your company for growth and expansion. New furniture is a great way to make an excellent first impression to new clients.
