Critical office furniture criteria?

Question asked by Elisabeth

What are the most important choice criteria when selecting office furniture?

response from John Englund

You need to strike a balance between quality, durability and of course affordability. Buying the lowest priced office furniture is not always the best strategy because you will probably need to replace it sooner than you would need to replace more solid (and more expensive) furniture. Think about how long you would like your furniture to last, and then buy accordingly. It’s also important to choose materials that are easy to clean. Everyday workstation chairs come in fabric, vinyl or plastic models, and some professional spaces like medical examination rooms will require furniture capable of withstanding daily cleaning with fairly harsh anti-bacterial solutions. You should also consider your current and future technology needs: do your reception desks, tables and shelving units allow you to pass cords and wires to power sources without cluttering up the room? Can your conference room furniture accommodate video conferencing equipment? Better to think of these issues in advance.
