If you have a lot of employees to seat and not a lot of budget to spend, accommodating everyone can be tough. To save on space and on money, take our tips for finding affordable workstation solutions for the whole office.
Consider an Open Concept
Although there are some drawbacks to the open concept office, this can be an excellent option for businesses that need to seat a large number of employees within a limited amount of office space. Open concept benching workstations can seat twice as many people in the same space that cubicles take up, and they are often more affordable because of it.
Go with the Right Materials
You can achieve an upscale look in your office without paying for A-grade furniture. Choose something with a streamlined, modern look in a metal and laminate construction to ensure that it will last for years to come so you won’t need to buy new desks every other year. If you need to add a little privacy to your open office, bring in affordable, portable room dividers to get the job done.
Get Everything in the Same Collection
From desks and bookcases to filing cabinets and wardrobes, getting everything you need in your workstations from the same collection will save you time and money in the end. Not only will this allow you to achieve a well-coordinated look throughout your office, but it will also save space and money since buying furniture in sets often lowers the cost of buying individual items separately and because items in a set are typically designed to fit together seamlessly. Our NBF Signature Series Element collection, for example, includes desks, privacy panels, wardrobes, filing, bookcases and more, all designed to save you space and money too.
