How to Select the Perfect Office Furniture

BDI’s Corridor Office in Charcoal finish sets the tone for a beautiful and functional office environment.

Creating the perfect workspace requires just a little extra forethought and attention to detail. Here are some helpful tips to consider when selecting the right office furniture for your clients.

Working 9 to 5

Before purchasing office furniture, consider the amount of space and storage your client’s going to need. If it’s important to have close access to files and room for peripherals, then consider a desk with built-in wire management to keep cords organized. If the workspace only requires a laptop and some office supplies, a simpler setup will suffice. 

Format Office by BDI offers a beautiful modern office aesthetic while providing functional features for a productive workspace.

Spatial Relations

No matter the setting, space constraints often dictate the ideal furniture configuration. In a dedicated office space, there’s more flexibility for a full executive set up. In a small or home office setting, options may be more limited, and so a more compact design or modular desk system may be the best option to maximize space.

The Duo 6241 packs a full-featured office setup in a small footprint.

Studied Style

A functional workspace doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate a little bit of style. Wood is great for a mid-century or transitional feel, while steel and glass collections create a more modern look. If the office is in your client’s home, keep it consistent with their décor and personal aesthetic.

Work Smart

Ergonomics and comfort play a big role in office productivity. Make sure the office furniture you select allows ideal seating and screen-placement to reduce fatigue. For optimal benefit, consider a height-adjustable standing desk that will allow for periods of both sitting and standing throughout the workday.

Features to Look For

The Corridor 6521 Desk features a satin-etched desktop surface and wire management for functional workspaces.

Other innovative features to consider when designing beautiful and functional workspaces include:

  • 1. Storage Solutions: keeps essential office supplies in their own space while remaining within arm’s reach.

    2. Built-in Wire Management: allows cords from all office equipment to be kept organized and out of sight.

    3. Optimum Surfaces: ideally provide work surfaces that are durable, easy to clean and mouse-friendly.

    4. Versatility: allows for future customization to meet your client’s needs.
