Within a given workplace, there is no singular item more important than an office chair. You spend a huge portion of your work time in your chair, and numerous items of research have shown over time that the quality of a chair can directly impact workplace productivity.

At New Life Office, we have a huge selection of new and used office chairs for your selection. What are some of the areas you should prioritize as you search for your next task chair? Here are a few things to keep in mind.

Adjustable Height

The optimal height for a chair will vary based on your desk, and it’s best to get a chair with adjustable abilities here. In most cases, you’ll need you seat to range between 16 and 21 inches off the ground. The idea is to be able to rest your feet flat on the floor while seated, with your thighs horizontal and arms even with the height of the desk.

Armrests

The recommended arm position to reduce overall strain on the arms involves the upper arms close to vertical, and the forearms relatively close to the horizontal plane. Many people think of armrests as a design element, but in reality, they’re one of the most important ergonomic components. Don’t overlook them.

Seat Depth

In a proper situation, there should be about two to four inches between the seat of the chair and the back of your knees. This positioning will keep the knees in good shape and prevent any unnecessary wear and tear on them.

Reclining Ability and Lumbar Support

According to experts, sitting at a reclined, 135-degree angle puts the least overall strain on the back. Make sure your backrest leaves room for a little slouching. Also, look for a chair with proper lumbar support, adjustable for both height and depth.

Wheels

Wheels are both a comfort concern and a practical one. Make sure your wheels aren’t a risk to the surface your chair sits on – this can be the case in certain floor material situations. On the other hand, if your surface is a rug or carpet, hard wheels will be best for navigation.

For any business, large or small, the conference room can be one of the most important areas. It’s the home base for big meetings, whether with clients or employees, and as typically the largest items in these rooms, conference tables set the tone.

At New Life Office, we have numerous size and material options for your next conference table. Here are some of the considerations you should keep in mind when making this kind of purchase.

Sets the Tone

You can tell a lot about a company by the style and tone of their furniture, and this is the case for conference tables. A lawyer’s office will often have darker wood tones like walnut or cherry, where a tech company with high-energy employees might prefer a lighter table with a maple or light oak finish. The name of the game here is matching the table to the culture of your company. Our design experts can help you here if you’re drawing blanks.

Size Matters

Ever been in a tiny, cramped conference room crowded around a table that didn’t really fit? It’s not comfortable, is it? Tables that are too big for the room and lead to overcrowding are a common mistake – the table should allow for a good number of people, but not take up too much space. A good rule of thumb is to leave a wide path completely around the table – you should be able to pull a chair out and get in or out of that space without disturbing the person next to you.

Communication

Conference tables have different applications, but one of the primary ones is communication. Some tables have a clear leadership chair at the head of the table, where others might be rounder or lend themselves to more of a group format. The shape also has to suit the room, of course, but keep office dynamics in mind here as well.

Limit Chairs

You may have enough room for 20 people at the table, but this might not be optimal. Too many people too closely together can create friction and distractions – it’s best to leave a space between chairs for personal space.

It’s never the first or even likely the tenth thing you think about when considering the characteristics of a workplace, but seated comfort absolutely should be a more common topic of conversation. Office chairs are one of the most important pieces of office furniture – they can have a real impact on tangible areas like productivity.

At New Life Office, our huge selection of guest chairs and task chairs is unmatched. For employees in your office, why are office chairs such a big deal? Let’s find out.

Posture

Bad seating materials lead to bad posture, and this can create issues both within and outside of the workplace. Employees who come into work with lingering back or neck issues are already starting from a disadvantage, and if these issues are being exacerbated by bad chairs or furniture setups in the office, you as a manager run the risk of decreased productivity. Sturdy, well-built chairs from New Life Office provide the support your bones need over long hours of sitting.

Comfort

Comfort in the workplace isn’t just about a lack of physical pain – it’s about feeling at home and completely free to focus on the tasks at hand. This can include everything from the physical characteristics of the chair to the way it looks. Anything that helps employees feel confident and relaxed in the place where they spend most of their day is a positive, especially if it’s actively promoting health and good posture at the same time.

Versatility

You won’t think about it much until something goes wrong, but the versatile nature of a good office chair goes a long way to allowing employees to optimize workflow. Little things like the ability to pivot or lock a chair in at a certain height seem standard, but in reality, many manufacturers have issues combining these features with the comfort and posture support we’ve already mentioned – all within a product that’s durable and will last through natural wear and tear.

This is the best way to describe all our new office furniture at New Life Office, where we know how vital these aesthetics can be for your business. Speak with one of our friendly service experts today to learn more.

When you’re ready to get started with a new business venture, you have probably spent a lot of time thinking about things like your logo, your product or service, hiring the right people to work for you, and finding the right office location. What you may not have given much thought to yet is how you’re going to outfit that office location so those employees can provide your products and services to customers in the best possible way. Office furniture might not be the most exciting part of starting a new business, but it is a critical component of delivering on your promise to your clients. Here are some must-have items for your new office space.

1: Workstations

Today’s office has changed, and chances are you won’t have dozens of individual offices where your employees will sit behind executive-style desks or in tiny cubicles with walls all around. Instead you will need a flexible workspace where you can quickly add new employees and new stations as you grow. Used office furniture is a great option for new startups because you can find an array of flexible options that will allow you to configure your office in the way that promotes creativity and productivity.

2: Chairs

Chairs might seem like an afterthought, but this is where your employees will be spending the vast majority of their day, so they need to be comfortable and functional. The problem is that you probably don’t want to blow your entire office furniture budget on chairs alone—after all, you’ll need some desks, computers, phones, and other office essentials to go with those chairs and keep your employees busy. Buying used office chairs is the best way to strike a balance between wanting the best for your employees and wanting to save some money. You can get the best of all worlds: comfort, style, and great prices.

3: Conference Tables

Another often-overlooked piece of equipment for your new office is the conference table. If you’ve ever shopped for office furniture before you know that finding affordable conference room furniture (short of buying a folding table and chairs) is a challenge. However, you need this furniture to provide your employees with a place to meet and collaborate with each other and with clients.

4: Lighting

Another thing that many new offices overlook is the need for lighting at each workstation. You probably have overhead lighting, but even the brightest fluorescent lights might not provide your employees with enough light to get their work done. This is especially true if you have things like hutches or shelves that could block the light, making the actual desk space much darker. In that case your employees will need desktop or under-hutch lighting to avoid straining their eyes.

5: Storage

No matter what business you are in, you will always have a need for some space to store important documents. That’s where a proper filing cabinet and storage shelves can come in. These functional pieces might seem like a frivolous expense, but having a good filing and storage system in place from the start keeps all your critical documents, licenses, invoices, permits, and other essentials in an easy-to-access location.

No matter what your product or service, having a great work space can help you recruit and retain employees, foster creativity, and offer exceptional service to your customers. Check out the benefits of used office furniture to get the functional pieces you need without breaking the bank.

How to Decide Between New and Used Office Furniture http://www.newlifeoffice.com/decide-new-used-office-furniture/ Sun, 16 Oct 2016 00:43:45 +0000 http://www.newlifeoffice.com/?p=17196 Whether you’re moving your startup company out of your living room and into your first office, or you’re moving a multinational corporation from one corporate office to another, getting into a new office space means you will need furniture.

Whether you’re moving your startup company out of your living room and into your first office, or you’re moving a multinational corporation from one corporate office to another, getting into a new office space means you will need furniture. The decision, then, is whether you want to purchase new or used office furniture. There are pros and cons to both, so here are some things you can use to decide.

Costs

Depending on how much furniture you need, the cost to outfit your entire facility could be pretty significant. Buying brand new furniture could cost as much as four to six times as much as the same furniture used. Buying from the right used furniture supplier can provide you with the same items for as little as 15 to 25 cents on the dollar when compared with new. The only difference is that used office furniture has been, well, used, and new furniture will be straight from the factory.

Quality

You might be concerned about buying used furniture with the worry that the items you get will come with significant damage, but in most cases used furniture will only have very minor scuffs or nicks, if you notice them at all. In fact, used furniture might offer you even more peace of mind in terms of getting the highest quality because you can get proven brands with a track record of success rather than an unknown piece of furniture from an unknown supplier. In addition, many used furniture sellers will offer you a warranty to ensure that you get quality pieces.

Depreciation

Purchasing new office furniture is a lot like purchasing a brand new car—the minute that you take delivery (or drive the car off the lot), the value of the items depreciates considerably. Used furniture, like a used car, has already gone through that initial depreciation so you get the best price and minimal loss of value upon delivery and installation. In fact, resale value has been shown to be as high as 75% of the original price for used furniture.

Environmentally Friendly

When an office closes or upgrades its furniture, what happens to the old items? If nobody purchases them as used furniture, the answer to this question is that they go to the local landfill. Recycling office furniture by keeping it in circulation means reducing landfill waste and providing an ecologically-conscious alternative for the planet.

Used office furniture resellers offer a huge variety of products to meet a wide range of office needs, from open creative spaces to cubicles, executive desks, chairs, and much more. The end result for you is high quality furniture at a much more affordable price, so next time you’re in the market for office furniture, your best option is to buy used.

The environment of the workplace is a huge influence on the performance of employees as well as clients. An office that is designed with quality furnishings and office furniture will make the office a more appealing work place with better services.

Bringing an office together with furniture is not an easy task, whether you are remodeling your office or moving to a new one, picking furniture that is built to last is vital.

Purchasing new chairs, cubicles, or executive office furniture can be costly, considering refurbished furniture can be a great choice. Refurbished furniture is made to bring back the “new look” condition while making sure quality is identical to new.

If you do decide to buy refurbished office furniture here are a few tips you should consider:

Office Layout

Prior to buying any office furniture you should consider the space and layout of your office. Refurbished office furniture is available in many designs, sizes, and styles. Be sure to have a plan as to what type of furniture to buy, and get measurements of the space to make sure the size of furniture you pick will fit the design and style of the office.

List of Manufacturers

There are many manufacturers that sell refurbished office furniture, selecting a genuine provider will get you the best results. Make a shortlist of trustworthy manufactures and make an in store visit to talk with the personnel. Having that list will make it simpler to compare quality and price.

Know Your Budget

Knowing your budget is imperative when you are deciding how much furniture you are going to buy. Comparing prices will help you to get the most affordable and quality furniture for your office.

Manufacturer’s Warranty

Some manufacturers will offer a warranty for refurbished office furniture. The warranty offered is dependent on the manufacturer, but it is a good idea to buy refurbished items with a warranty to guarantee the quality of furniture that you buy.

Aside from the reduced cost of buying new furniture, buying refurbished items or used office furniture will also help save the environment.
