In the modern office, planning the perfect design requires consultation with plenty of people. Not only should the office please you, but it must also please fellow employees and any potential clients or customers that may enter. What should be considered and what should be asked when constructing an office design that will please everyone?
CONSULT WITH EMPLOYEES ON FURNITURE
In any major design, office furniture will be at the forefront – for designers and employees alike. It may be time to transition to more modern and reliable office desks, ergonomic office chairs and enhanced storage solutions for maximum productivity. Your employees will generally have a better idea than anyone else what it takes to achieve an office design that is pleasing to them and simultaneously more productive: be sure to include them in the discussion.
PROCURE ERGONOMIC FURNITURE
It was briefly referenced before, but it cannot be overstated: the office of the future revolves around proper acquisition and usage of ergonomic office equipment. Once adopted and perfected, ergonomic desks, keyboards and chairs – among other items – will increase productivity, reduce illness and injury and promote energy, all of which lead to better office outcomes for all. With health and wealth alike on the line, there is simply no choice when it comes to considering this type of furniture in an office design.
INSPECT OTHERS’ SUCCESS STORIES
Home and corporate offices around the world go through the process of redesigning their office spaces all the time, so there are plenty of quality examples out there to consider when planning any overhaul. Fellow local office managers may be willing to share details on what works for them, and the internet is a prime resource for both details and visual examples. While it may feel like a huge, insurmountable chore, countless other offices have tackled this effort successfully. Learn from their experiences!

Pedder and Summer bring to the office furniture business what is often lacking in business, a real service commitment in not only providing a cost competitive price package but also providing that before and after sales care which is so important to the customer.
We have worked closely with Donnie and his team over many years for the supply of office furniture and our latest project was creating a bespoke office environment at our new corporate headquarters in Milton Keynes for over 100 people.
The design brief included wanting to source product from a UK manufacturer which also depicted our engineering heritage and requiring the use of our corporate paint scheme on the furniture to promote our company identity.
We at Niftylift are happy to recommend Pedder and Summers Limited as your office furniture supplier. – Michael McKenna – Senior Commodity Manager
