Why does office furniture improve productivity?

Particularly referring to the work place, every piece of furniture will play an important part in boosting productivity. With the addition of great furniture, the ability to take productivity to a new level is effortless. Below are a few ways that great office furniture can boost productivity in the work space:

Boring Furniture will make people lethargic
Office furniture that is dull and uninteresting not only makes people sluggish, but naturally it will make people irritated and clumsy by the mass of work on a person’s desk. Being enclosed with boring furniture, people often loose interest in their work and will affect a persons output to a huge amount. Including exciting configurations and gadgets into the office space will keep people interested in their work increasing their yield.

Vibrant Colours Bring Enthusiasm

A large amount of work places are starting to introduce bright colours – this is due to that cool and bright colours help in lifting peoples attitude which contributes to a better atmosphere. People spend a large majority of their life in the work place so is vital that the there is a nice aura. Bright colours are a good way to relieve stress as well as increasing peoples’ efficiency.

Not only great furniture but cleanliness is also accountable for providing constructive vibes throughout the office. An unorganised office is going to withdraw workers of the enthusiasm and passion to work properly. A clean office is going to make people feel comfortable and they will have the ability to be more constructive in the tasks they undertake.

Keep Items Handy
 Another suggestion includes keeping things accessible. This includes items that are used regularly such as; printers, stationary etc. Often workers will put off work because they need to get up and go to another place to complete the task in hand. A good way for this is to have storage close by. Keeping things handy will not only speed up work but will also affect the amount of output from a worker. 

Split the Office
Dividing the office space into different zones often helps with efficiency. This makes the office more interesting for the workers and can be easily done, for example through acoustic panels, free standing screens or glass partitioning. Allocating two different zones in an office for professional and person use will make people feel more relaxed and that they have more control over their professional and private lives.

Height Adjustable Desks Make People Healthier
Height adjustable desks reduce the chance of diabetes, obesity, cancer and cardiovascular disease – a wide variety of studies have discovered that there is a connection between the quantity of time a person spends sitting and their chances of dying inside a specific time period. Height adjustable desks are a great way of getting people mobile within the workplace, not only this but it also gives them a chance to be in a different position whilst still working. This will decrease the likelihood of people becoming unsettled and therefore their work load being affected. We have a wide range of height adjustable desks available that would help with productivity.

Getting Your Office Storage Right

A smooth-running office is an imperative aspect of an effective business and finding the correct office storage is a fundamental element of this. The right storage will keep the office space looking clean and tidy, but not only this, it will help the business be efficient. Storage is critical as this helps save time, prevent loss of paperwork or documents and makes sure that organisation is paramount. There are so many different types of storage that are available to a business it can sometime become a little daunting. There are many factors that need to be considered when looking at storage such as the following:

Wooden Storage 

The advantage of wooden storage in the office is that wood is strong, hard-wearing, easy to sustain and good value for money. Choosing wooden storage solutions is a good option for a welcoming look in the office area, as this looks like more of a homely environment. Metal sometimes looks a little cold and uncharacteristic. Another great thing about wooden storage is that it is available in such a wide choice of finishes it can fit in with any office space. In addition, most of our wooden storage ranges are supplied with a full five-year guarantee for peace of mind.

Metal Storage 

Metal storage is frequently found in office spaces as it is strong, durable and low maintenance. Selecting metal storage is a good idea if a modern look is desired. Metal storage can also create a professional image in the office. Metal storage is very durable and is available in a wide choice of colours.  To boot, some of our metal storage is supplied with a full ten-year guarantee!

Built-In Storage 

Built in storage is a great way to make the most of the office space. The built-in storage is fully bespoke, so this can be tailored to the exact specification that it required – whether this is plain shelves or pull out filing frames. All of our built-in storage ranges are fully lockable which ensures that safety and confidentiality is paramount. All of our built-in storage is supplied with a full five-year guarantee. 

Things to Consider

The first thing that you need to consider, is obviously what you are going to be storing and this will affect which storage solution is for you. Some of the following items are important factors to consider when choosing storage:

The Space Available

It is always important to measure the space available in the office space to help decide how much space can be allocated for storage. We offer a free 3D CAD and space planning service that can help with this. It is important to take into deliberation where the other office furniture is going to be positioned. It is fundamental that enough space is left around the furniture and storage for people to freely move around the office space. Allowing space for opening doors, drawers etc is also something that must be considered – again, our space planning service can help with clearances in the office space.

The Amount of Storage Needed

It is Key to evaluate the amount of storage that is needed. You will also need to how much of each type of material is going to be stored so this will also affect the amount of certain storage types that are needed.


An allocated budget should be set before anything is spent on storage. Although the amount spent may want to be limited, it should also be acknowledged that good storage will potentially save both time and money in the future.


If customers or potential customers are visiting the office, then the design is very important to create a professional image. Storage is available in a wide range of designs which allows personal taste to be added to the work environment. Again, our free 3D design service can help with the end goal for the office space. This service also allows the buyer to see what the finishes will look like and what different configurations will look like in the space.
