Use office space better with fitted office furniture

When furnishing a new office (or even refurnishing an old one), you have two choices: Off-the–shelf furniture and fitted office furniture. While getting off-the–shelf furniture doesn’t take as long as choosing fitted office furniture, the latter are more often suited to meet the requirements of your office.

Fitted office furniture are a kind of bespoke furniture tailor-made to the size of of your office so they can maximise the use of space, a plus in offices where optimum use of scarce resources is a prime consideration. Fitted office furniture are not only designed to be more space efficient, they are also crafted to complement how the office staff utilise the office environment.

But designing fitted office furniture is more time-consuming because your furniture suppliers have to get there at the office, make measurements, observe how the people work, consult with you and develop the right office furniture design based on the data obtained. But ultimately, the results are worth it — you are guaranteed furniture that best fit your office at the price you can afford.

There are several considerations in designing fitted office furniture. These will influence the style and choice of materials of your furniture — including the decor. One is the character of the company. Is it a bleeding-edge outfit that requires the best contemporary fitted furniture? Does it project a futuristic feel, or does it tend towards the traditional? Contrasting or coordinated?

Another consideration is who will use the furniture in what office room? A reception room needs to project the company image more than any other. Reception desks should also be strategically designed and placed so they show off the best qualities of the room and take advantage of office traffic. Shelves and furniture drawer designs will also vary between a room for clerks and a room full of architects. Similarly a boardroom will have different needs from a sound recording room.

Talk to an office fitting expert. They will be glad to help you. Derrick Dickinson, owner of Rio Designs for example, says his firm has been doing detailed office space planning — evaluating, recommending or designing furniture to suit available space on clients’ sites for 30 years.

Next time you are faced with the question of furnishing an office, consider fitted office furniture. They give you the most satisfaction for your budget.
