Furnishing an office in Sydney can be excellent fun but there are so many options that your head may start to spin like a revolving chair. This short guide will provide you with a breakdown of some of the options for office furniture in Sydney that are available to you when buying chairs and tables.
Traditionally offices were laid out with cubicles and workstations. There are both benefits and disadvantages to using this method of desks. The obvious benefit over other styles is privacy and noise prevention, but this does however also pose a problem. When attempting to stop your staff from becoming distracted by the many possible websites online, it is difficult to do so when they are all in individual desks. The benefit of noise reduction does mean that conversations can be held more easily in the office.
The office desk can be used either in an individual office or as one of many in an open plan office. If you do not have the luxury of having an office each, then an open plan office is a good option. Whilst it does mean that a disturbance anywhere will disturb everyone, it does allow for easier monitoring of your staff members and will help to build stronger relationships between your staff members. An open plan office looks modern and professional and induces hard-working staff because they feel more monitored by each other and by the manager.
Every office needs a boardroom or meeting room and they require a large table. This table needs to be big enough for a group meeting and also flexible for use for interviews and presentations. Choosing the right boardroom table is dependent on the number of people who will attend meetings and the space available. Remember that if a table is too large, not allowing space to move around the room, then it will make both staff members and clients uncomfortable when they are required to use it.
When it comes to buying office chairs in Sydney there are three distinct types that are necessary to have. The first of these is the executive or managers chair. This chair must tell of professionalism and respect. A professional chair has more of an impact on clients and business partners than you would expect and it will also demonstrate authority to your staff members.
The client chair should ideally match the chairs of the businessman but be on a smaller scale. It is important to create a distinction between customer and staff member through the use of chairs; yet it is also essential to make the client comfortable. Find a matching chair which is still comfortable but visibly different to establish clear boundaries which are defined by the furniture.
Meeting room chairs need to be versatile and easily manoeuvrable. Brainstorming and differing numbers of meeting attendees will require different positions from the chairs so make sure they are lightweight and easily moved to prevent any injury or inconvenience.
