Choosing Office Furniture That Works

In order to select the perfect office furniture needed for your office, you need to consider who will be using it and what their roles are, the equipment that will be included, and what type of business it is.

If it is the office of a doctor or dentist, they usually have rows of files along the walls that represent their patients. There is a receptionist answering phones and booking appointments, so she will be using a computer and there is a certain type of desk or work area for that. A file clerk will be sorting and alphabetizing files, so he or she will need a desk with plenty of counter space for his or her tasks. An accountant is usually also in these offices to track the billing. The accountant will be in a separate, semi-private cubicle, also with a computer and the necessary desk or work space for that.

Dentists, as well as doctors do need their own private office space, as well. They need a desk, phone, and some room for files, whether it is in his desk drawer, or other shelving. Books and reference materials and leaflets will also need to be stored somewhere in his office.

If the office is for boiler room type telemarketing, each of the staff will have their own desk, with or without a partition. If they need to look up or input information into a computer, each will have a desk and computer for this purpose. Since they will be on the phone a lot of the time, the phones on the desks should be in a convenient corner, and there should be a place to take notes also.

Printing firms and publishing houses may need drafting tables and large counter tops in order to examine work for final approval. The computers are also used to pay attention to detail before printing, and some counter space is needed there, as well. Insurance offices, real estate office, and sales offices may all share the desks and equipment at different times, as these individuals usually work out of the office at least part of the day. They come back to check emails, print out information, and so on. They need computes, phones, and maybe some file cabinets, and a common printer for all.

The work space needs to be thought of and designed before furniture is ordered. The way procedure works at the office may also be a determining factor as to where people sit and how they work.

And the boss needs some privacy. The information he has in his office is of no concern to the rest of the staff. He or she should be in a space that is very obviously his own, and yet it is not so distant that he cannot be a part of what goes on in his own company.

Also, if the office can be put together with ergonomically, the staff will be more comfortable. Ergonomic chairs can be adjusted to each different back and neck. There should be typing desks that make sense for administrative staff that does a lot of typing. Telephones should be in a convenient place, and if a lot of phone work is needed, the staff should have access to an ear piece, instead of having to hold the phone on their shoulders. A little consideration, along with design will create sensible decisions for buying office furniture.
