Boardroom furniture often conjures up images of boring black, white and grey rooms with very little visual stimulation around the room. Generally, not the most inspiring of places which for somewhere new ideas are conceived and progression is put forward, shouldn’t be the case. Improving your boardroom furniture can put your staff in a more positive mood, which will pay dividends in the form of higher productivity!
Brighten it Up
If you want to inspire creativity in your businesses, step away from the usual greyscale colours of boardroom furniture and try something that’s a little more fun. Choosing either natural wood colourings or painted surfaces can not only brighten up the place but can help boost mood levels around the office. When selecting your choice of colour, remember to stick with neutral or pastel shades, rather than primary or bright colours as these could have the opposite effect, being unsightly and making a room unpleasant to be in.
Choose High Standard
While it can be tempting to go for the cheapest possible solution to try and cut costs, this can have a negative effect on staff productivity levels. Choose something too cheap and it could make working conditions unbearable, particularly if the installation is unreliable and you’re left with uneven legs, wobbly surfaces or uncomfortable chairs. Instead, invest in the productivity levels of your staff by purchasing a high-quality product from a reputable supplier.
As a business owner, it is your responsibility to ensure that the company is acting in a sustainable and environmentally friendly way. With more and more pressure on businesses to eliminate waste and make a stand against bad practice, it’s vital that you set an example to your staff by choosing sustainable or recyclable boardroom furniture. Veer away from plastic treated counter tops and choose natural materials, preferably sustainable sourced, from an FSC certified company.
