Are you in the market for office furniture?
As a business owner, you’re probably always looking for ways to save money – and you definitely want to get the best possible deal on workstations, executive desks, file cabinets, staff seating and any other office furnishings you need.
Fortunately, you don’t have to have a big budget to outfit your business space. To save money on office furniture, follow these five tips.
Consider Your Needs
Don’t start shopping for office furniture until you’ve determined what you actually need. Collaborative workstations work well for some businesses, but employees in other offices may be better served by individual desks. Think about storage, too – what do you need to keep the workplace clutter out of sight?
Create a Plan
After you decide what you need, spend some time creating a plan for the office layout. The furniture you choose must fit well within the space, without disrupting the natural flow. Take accurate measurements of the rooms before you begin shopping, and keep space planning in mind when you make your selections.
Buying furniture at a local big box store might seem like a great way to save money, but don’t assume those places have the best prices. Compare costs to local office furniture dealers before making a purchase. You can look at online stores, but be aware that purchase often come with hefty shipping charges.
Consider Used or Refurbished Furniture
You might think you need to buy new to get high-quality furnishings that gives your business a professional look, but that isn’t the case at all. You can save money and get exactly what you want with used or refurbished furniture. Refurbished pieces look like they’re new, and you can find used furniture that’s in excellent condition – and both options offer significant cost savings.
Look for Added Services
When you want to save money outfitting a business space, you need to think about more than just getting the lowest furniture prices. As we mentioned, space planning is crucial, and to get a put-together look, you may need help from a professional. In addition, you might require assistance with installation or with recycling your existing furnishings. To avoid paying for these services and increasing your overall cost, look for an office furniture dealer that provides them for free.
