The 5 Biggest Mistakes to Avoid When Buying New Office Furniture:
Purchasing office furniture requires practical considerations beyond aesthetics. It may look nice but
your employees go home with neck aches every day or aren’t productive in the space. By avoiding a
few commonly made mistakes, the furniture you select will yield improved employee satisfaction,
productivity and profits for your business.

Mistake #1:
Buying without a plan. Before investing in office furniture, think it through. Assess your needs and
how each piece will be used. Does your company culture lend more time to formal conference rooms
or informal quick meeting places? A chair, for example – will it be used occasionally or all day?
Should it be height-adjustable? Will it be stationary when in use or should it be light enough to be
moved easily? The more thought you give prior to purchase, the greater the likelihood of success.
