|Whether it's a new build, quick refresh, or thorough renovation, make sure your private office is up to COIVD-19 safety standards with our thorough guides to securing your space.|
These days, a private office is a luxury that provides quietude, enhances focus, maximizes productivity, and allows for sensitive meetings to take place. The right furniture suites set the right tone while maximizing the capabilities of these solitary spaces.
The size of your private office space defines the limitations of your furniture. Take careful and accurate measurements and don't forget about door swing, windows, vents, and any odd corners that might complicate things.
Start with Design
Company pending, the occupant of the private office might have a say in the final design. Plan ahead with an interior designer to ensure that everybody's vision is within reach and that the aesthetic is neutral enough to fit today's occupant and beyond.
The Scope of Seating
An executive chair is an obvious requirement, but a set of desks chairs are a common fixture in private offices. Larger spaces may be able to accommodate a 2-4 person meeting table and executive suites may even have room for a set of more comfortable lounge seating.
Stay Within Budget
Executive furniture is a bit pricier than bulk desking. Pay attention to the cost of a furniture suite and see what substitutions can be made if you're nearing your maximum budget. To fill out a space, lean on larger décor choices, such as artificial plants or a coat stand, to complete the space without dramatically increasing cost.
Consider the storage needs of your occupant and the types of items they'll need to organize. Mixed-type storage credenzas, bookcases, wardrobes, and mobile pedestals are great ways to add additional storage capacity with style.
Privacy vs. Forward-Facing
While the shape of the space might dictate what's possible, there's a clear difference between a desk that faces outward versus one that faces a wall. Position your workstation in a way that's conducive to productivity as well as any need to accommodate guests.
