office-05_thumbWhether you’re moving into a new office or redesigning your current one, it’s important to use your space efficiently in order to maximize productivity. When you’re shopping for office furniture, you’re more than likely to come across a variety of options, but how can you be sure which set up is right for you? To make your shopping experience a little less stressful, we’ve collected some tips to keep in mind when choosing office furniture:

1. Space: As you start searching for furniture it’s important to keep your space in mind. Before you begin the search, take down the measurements of your office so you know exactly which pieces you can and cannot use. Not ready to do it yourself? At Nickerson we offer free onsite space planning and layout services. Leave it to a professional to get accurate measurements and guide you through the process.

2. Budget: Finding a great deal is sure to excite anyone, but it’s important to take note of the quality of the product before committing. Instead of looking for the lowest prices, you are better off looking for a combination of the best quality and pricing; after all, you get what you pay for! Always look for reputable, professional brands so that you get the most out of what you spend. At Nickerson, we supply affordable, quality pieces that can meet any of your office furniture needs.

3. Installation: While some pieces come put together, others will require some assembly when they arrive. If you order something online or in store that requires installation, make sure you have the proper tools available before it is delivered. If you are going through a furniture distributor, make sure installation is covered in the cost of the job, not just the furniture itself.

4. Design: When you’re picking out furniture, don’t always go with the first thing you see. Instead, consider how the furniture you choose will match what you already have and look for pieces with similar finishes and design styles.

Shopping for new furniture should be exciting rather than stressful; after all, there is so much you can do with it to spice up your work space and excite your employees!
