Budgeting For New Office Furniture

Budgeting For New Office Furniture


The past 18 months have been tough for most businesses, what with COVID-19 closures and restrictions. As offices have reopened, some offices have added disinfectant stations, plexiglass partitions and revamped common spaces. But what if it’s time to update your office furniture? How can you get the most bang for your buck? We asked the office furnishings experts at Desks, Inc. in Denver CO for tips about buying new office furniture in Denver on a budget. Here’s what they had to say.


Check Your Finances


The first step in building a budget for an office expenditure is to check your finances. You need (at the least!) a ballpark figure or plan BEFORE you start shopping. Take a close look at your business budget or plan and determine what your maximum expenditure can be. No matter what, DO NOT exceed this number when you are furnishing your office. Then, establish a budget for what you’d like to spend, leaving a little ‘wiggle room’ before hitting that maximum budget amount. Also, don’t forget to include the costs for delivery and assembly!


Check Out Your Furniture


What furniture do you have that can still be used? What do you want to get rid of? What do you need? Office planning takes planning. Do you want an open layout? Individual offices? A combination? Remember, some people work great in wide open spaces, while others don’t. Even job descriptions can determine whether a person works in an individual office with actual doors versus cubicles or open space.


Establish Priorities


Once you have created your list of what you have and what you need, list them in order of priority. For example, client-facing spaces should be higher on your priority list than spaces they don’t see. While the spaces only for employees are important, if your budget is limited, clients rule.
