If you’re working on a tight budget or in a small office, having furniture that’s versatile is key. Fortunately, more and more office furniture is being designed with multiple purposes in mind. Tables may seem like a basic piece of office furniture, but it’s that very simplicity that makes them so adaptable. Take a look at all the ways you can use one simple table with these tips featuring our exclusive NBF Signature Series Transcend table desk.
As a desk. Just because it doesn’t have any drawers or storage compartments doesn’t mean a table can’t make a great desk. Simply equip your space with a mobile pedestal, work at a laptop and voila! Most offices that incorporate a table desk pair it with a credenza that gets placed against the wall to accommodate more storage and a desktop computer.
As a conference table. You can use that same desk as a conference table simply by clearing off the surface and pulling some chairs around it. We recommend using nesting or stacking chairs for this purpose as they can be kept in the corner of the office without taking up much room. Remember, the length of the table measured in feet is usually the number of people who can be comfortably seated around it. That is to say, a six-foot-long table can be used by six individuals at once.
As a breakroom table. When it comes to selecting a table for your company’s lunchroom, your number one priority should be finding an option that is hygienic and easy to clean. Remember, people are going to be eating off these things! The Transcend table desk is constructed with a laminate surface, which is a great choice for use in a breakroom. Not only is laminate low maintenance, but it’s also highly resistant to scratches and stains, which is a must for long-lasting use in a high traffic lunchroom.
Although you may not want to use a single table for all three of these purposes, it’s easy to use one table in two or three of the ways listed above. It’s also beneficial to know what table can work in every room in your office if you value a neat, cohesive look throughout the building.
