When purchasing desks for an office space, you will want to consider both the impression they will have on any customers or clients that see them and also the comfort of your employees. Be sure to give special consideration to desks that will be most visible, such as the receptionist’s desk or ones where clients/customers will work with employees. Consider also what kinds of desks will help your employees be most productive. Here are a few factors to consider when picking out desks, as suggested in the article “Making the Most of Office Desks”:
- Balance trendiness with functionality. Don’t pick something so artistic and trendy that it sacrifices serious functionality. Look for items that embrace a modern aesthetic, but still have enough room for a computer and a comfortable amount of workspace.
- Check out custom made desks. One popular trend in office spaces is having desks custom made for the office. This allows workers who require desks with specific features to get exactly what they need, thus maximizing productivity.
- Consider putting in work stations. Cubicles are going out of fashion, and collaboration is the new trend. Try for workstations that are more open and allow for interaction and exchange of ideas.
Take the time to pick out furniture that will be both visually impressive and useful for employees!
