We're here to help you through the design process by providing the advice needed to rock your makeover project. From space planning to accenting, we'll show you how to create the workspace you've always dreamed of.

Planning

All successful office remodels start with effective planning. First things first, you need to obtain some dimensions! Start by measuring the perimeter of your interior. 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.

Now it's time to shop! You'll need 3 main items to get your space started off on the right foot. The first is a high quality office chair with adjustable features to keep you operating at your best.

  • Spritz by Global Total Office
  • Oroblanco by iDesk
  • Ergohuman by Eurotech Seating

Once you've settled on a comfy chair, it's time to build out the rest of your interior around it. The second item you'll need is a personal computer desk that meets your space requirements. 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!

Offices To Go Superior Laminate Furniture

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. Vintage lighting fixtures, mid century modern scones, retro wall art, and area rugs can all help you spice up your overall vibe.
