What do you need in your office when starting out

It is a brand new year, an ideal time to start up those new ventures you have been dreaming about. Are you currently starting a new business and tired of operating out of coffee shops or that tiny junk room in your apartment or home?

Then now is the time to start looking at office space and what goes into making that space ideal for you and your future employees.

You do not need to go all out with regards to office furniture. However, there are essentials when it comes to getting a space ready for people to work in, no matter the industry. So where do you even begin? This blog will assist you in making sure you have everything you need in your office when starting.

1. A home office or business premises

If you have sufficient space for you and your startup team, then working at home is an option. Clear out the room and have a small desk system in place, enough room for each member to sit at. Or go with a shared office desk option if the work you are doing is conducive to collaborative desk sharing. 

If you are unable to work from your home due to the nature of the work or the size of your startup team, then look into an office that caters to your exact needs and in the ideal location. Furthermore, make a list of the items you are going to need regarding office furniture and put that into your office budget as well when looking at rental spaces.

2. Get the office furniture you need 
As mentioned above if you have a team that needs to work together, consider the open plan, collaborative shared desk idea. This will minimise the number of desks you need and will create a more open flow space. 

Furthermore, get the right chairs for your team as this will assist in long term efficiency. There is nothing worse than sitting on an uncomfortable chair from 9 am to 5 pm. Make sure the desk has ample space for laptops, desktops, printers, files and writing space.

Workstation office furniture offers a wide range of options for the small office space to the larger office spaces, and they can deliver to the Port Elizabeth, George and East London area. They are therefore making your office furniture shopping easy, efficient and effective – allowing you to focus on getting your startup off the ground.
