Reasons Why Great Office Furniture Increases Productivity

June 28, 2016

Picture this: You come back from a long weekend, only to find that your favorite desk and computer chair have been changed. All of a sudden you’re not as productive–is it the furniture? It could be! Studies show that having the right office set up can make or break how productive you are during the day. Here are some reasons why having great office furniture often yields better results:

Boring Furniture Can Make You Lazy: It’s hard to feel motivated when you’re sitting in a drab room. Being surrounded by boring, outdated furniture can make you lose interest in your work and feel sleepier throughout the day. Your employees spend so much time at work, so why not make it fun and appealing for them to be there?

Colors Bring Enthusiasm: Multiple studies show just how much your environment affects your mood–and one of the most influential factors in that, is color! Bright color schemes typically enhance enthusiasm, while cool color schemes are helpful in supporting relaxation and easing stress in the office.

Help Your Health: Not only will the right office furniture increase your productivity at work, but it’s good for you too! Working in a comfortable, ergonomically designed setting can do wonders in easing back pain and muscle tension, that can build up from increased periods of sitting.

Optimize Your Space: Great office furniture isn’t just designed to look good, it’s designed to be practical. Not only should the furniture itself include great storage options to make the most of your space, but it should also be deliberately placed near frequently used traffic paths. Arranging your work space in a convenient way will allow your employees to make the most of their time and can increase office morale.
