Be sure to take note of all the entry ways, windows, power outlets and room obstructions that will affect the way your new office furniture is situated.

How To Properly Measure Your OfficePro Tip: Once you've got your dimensions, it's always a good idea to double check them for accuracy. Rest assured, there's nothing worse that purchasing furniture that doesn't fit properly upon arrival.

It's always a good idea to set a budget and timeline for your project. Do a little research upfront to determine how much the items you're interested in will cost. If you need help, you can always visit a local showroom in your area.

If you decide to purchase in-stock items for your project, be prepare for a quick turnaround. In-stock office furniture and chairs typically leave the factory within 2 business days of order. Custom furniture and made to order items will give you a little bit more prep time. They usually take around 3 to 4 weeks to manufacture and ship.

How To Properly Furnish An Office InteriorFurnishing

Before you rush out and purchase new furniture for your space, spend a little bit of time researching the latest trends and getting inspired. Social sharing sites like Instagram and Pinterest will provide you with a ton of awesome ideas that can be used to make your space stand out from the competition.

Typically, office desks come in standard lengths of 63" and 72" wide. Always check the dimensions before you make a purchase to ensure it will fit.

Lastly, you'll want to add a storage cabinet, file cabinet, or credenza to help you stay well organized. If you've got the budget and space, there's no harm in adding one of each. You can never have enough storage space. It always goes faster than you think!

Accenting:

When To Paint Your OfficeBefore your new furniture arrives, you'll want to start prepping your space. Start by removing your old furniture and selling it to recapture a bit of your budget.

With your furniture removed, it's the perfect time to lay on a fresh coat of paint. This year coastal colors like light blues, grays, and greens have been super popular.

Pro Tip: Don't wait to paint once your new furniture has been installed. The risk for spills and accidents goest up significantly!

Wait until your furniture is fully installed before you start purchasing interior accents. The idea in your mind and the end result after assembly may end up differing a bit. Once your loving your layout, you can begin shopping for cool accents to make your space pop.

Accenting your office can be done for aesthetic value, or improved productivity. We highly recommend taking a "productivity first" approach. The integration of a few must have ergonomic products will have you ready to tackle the demands of the modern work day with ease.

Ergonomic Accents:

Must Have Ergonomic Office Accessories
  • Add an articulating monitor arm to increase desk space while encourage healthy typing angles. 
  • Integrate a dual screen monitor arm to improve the rate at which you compute while reducing visual strain and the neck pain associated with having your screens on the factory base.
  • Purchase a CPU holder that mounts underneath your desk surface to provide you with additional knee space. You'll also have an easier time routing wires and charging devices.
Cool Aesthetic Accents For An OfficePro Tip:  If you really want to go next level, consider investing in a desktop riser that promotes sit to stand operating. They're about $300.00, but the benefits gained are second to none. A sit to stand desk attachment will help you fight fatigue, increase blood flow, and reduce the health risks associated with sitting for hours on end.



You'll no doubt want to spice up your interior with a few aesthetic accents as well. They're the perfect way to show off your individual style. Skip the old school motivational posters and get creative with your wall art. Visiting a swap meet, thrift store, or antique shop will provide you with lot's of cool items that can be used to compliment your decor.

How To Make Your Office Remodeling Project Fun
Office remodeling projects can be stressful and tiring, but they don't have to be. We're here to tell you, they can be quite enjoyable and even fun. Today on the OfficeAnything.com blog we'll teach you how to get the most out of your interior without the headaches. From group showroom visits to hosting a big reveal, we'll have you loving each step of the process.

First things first, you need to assemble a team that you enjoy working with. Don't choose more than 3 remodeling assistants because if you do, the input and opinions can become a bit overwhelming. A team of 4 trusted individuals including yourself is perfect.

Now that you're working with people you like, you can sit down and create a plan. A well thought out plan of attack and timeline will help keep your project on track and within budget. Formulating a plan at the beginning of the remodel will most certainly reduce the risk of error and make your project much more enjoyable as each step comes together.

Once you've got a plan, it's time to have a little fun. Get your remodeling team together for an inspiration quest! Visit a local showroom one afternoon with your crew. You'll be rewarded with an abundance of cool ideas on how to make your space efficient, unique, and fashionable. The professionals at the showroom will be happy to tell you about the latest trends from open concept benching systems to self adjusting office chairs the minimize the ergonomic learning curve.

Pro Tip:

If you don't have a showroom in your area, take your search to the web. Check out social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram. They're great for inspiration!

With all the inspiration needed to rock your remodel, you and your team are officially ready to shop. Creating a coupon contest will make the process much more fun. Offer up a $20 gift card to the team member that finds the best deal on the office furniture and seating needed to complete your project. Make bulk discounts, free shipping specials, closeout items eligible to win the prize!

Part of having fun during the office remodeling process means not falling victim to the obstacles businesses face that cause headaches due to a lack of shipment scheduling. Once you've purchased your new products, contact the dealer directly. Inquire about estimated ship times and tracking information to ensure you project stays on track.

The week your furniture arrives is the perfect time to prep. To make the process more enjoyable, throw a painting party. Get your crew together and remove all the old furniture in your space. Take pics before if disassembling anything if you're planning to sell it to recapture some of the budget.

Once the furniture is removed, order a few pizzas and start painting while you're waiting for them to arrive. This will allow you to take a break half way through to break up the process. Team painting can definitely be fun! We recommend doing it after normal business hours to eliminate the stress and distractions caused during the typical work day.

When your furniture arrives, create a staging area outside of the office your remodeling. Avoid taking all the boxes into your space at once. It will make for a cramped assembly process that isn't fun at all.

Alternatively, bring in boxes one at a time. Opening them will feel like Christmas morning. You and your team will be excited to check out the ergonomic chairs and desks you've purchased. It's a lot of fun!

Pro Tip:

Make sure to fully assemble each individual desk and chair as you open it, then dispose of the boxes before brining in additional items. They'll build up on you quick, so stay on top of it. Furniture is always well packed and there will be lots of bubble wrap and fodder that requires disposal.

With your space complete, it's time to show off your work with a big reveal. Make sure your interior is fully prepped and ready to be displayed to the rest of the office. Throw a little gathering with some drinks and snacks. Just be ready to receive lot's of compliments on what a great job you guys have done. Then be sure to tell them how much fun the process was so they'll want to do the next one! Then take a few pics of your space to share on social media. Rest assured, there's others out there looking for awesome design inspiration.

Today on the OfficeAnything.com blog we'll provide you with the 5 key reasons we fell in love with these trendy new chairs.

The weight sensing ergonomic chairs from this collection automatically respond to the user to provide optimal support. We feel that the multi purpose chairs and flip seat side chairs from the Spritz line are perfect for intensive training areas. You can even use Spritz chairs like the 6764 to maximize guest comfort in waiting room, reception, and lobby environments.

Global Spritz Drafting Chair3.) Versatility

We're in a day and age where it's okay to expect more out of your office seating. You'll no doubt fall in love with the capabilities of the Spritz line. These chairs offer unrivaled versatility.

5.) Durability

As with all Global products, Spritz chairs are built to last. These highly versatile office seating solutions are ready, willing, and able to tackle the demands of intensive work environments. While there's not yet a big and tall variation available, we fully expect Global will take care of this minor collection deficiency in the near future.

The bases, cylinders, and frames are all impact resistant and sure to look great for years to come.
