The phenomemon that is Black Friday has exploded upon us over the last few years and it's all about the frantic fight to get the best deals out there. We all love a bargain, but just because something is cheap it doesn't necessarily mean that you're getting a good deal.
When it comes to furnishing offices, the majority of us are working to a tight budget. However, when you're setting the budget for your new office furniture, some pieces really are worth the expense.
Three Areas Where You Should Spend On Office Furniture
First Impressions: Having a shabby and cluttered reception desk immediately gives off a negative impression to clients. You cannot have the attitude that it's "only the receptionists workspace" because first impressions really do count. Spending more on this office desk will give your clients the right professional message about your company.
Customer Experience: Having steered your clients through your impressive reception area, you can't then take them into a pokey, ill-lit, uncomfortable conference room. To create a meeting space that’s attractive, impressive and comfortable, you need to be prepared to spend out on a suitable conference table.
Lasting Impressions: If you total up how many members of staff you have then multiply that by how many hours they are spending sat at their desks you will see how important it is that you have both the correct office chairs and suitbable workstations for each and every person within your company. Buy cheap, buy twice. Not just for the furniture but also for the health and wellbeing of your workforce.
When planning your office furniture budget it always pay to invest in the focal point of a room, such as the reception desk and conference tables, as well as on the people that you rely upon to move your business forward.
