Buying New Office Furniture for Your New Office Is Sometimes The Best Option
Moving to a new building, whether it is up-sizing or downsizing, can be tough for any business. Will the furniture fit in the new space? Is the furniture even suited for the new space? Today, we’ll be giving you five reasons why selling old furniture and buying new office furniture may be the right, and easy, choice for your company. FF&E installation can save you some headaches.
1. Buy New Office Furniture to Fit In a New Space
One of the most obvious reasons to buy new furniture is to avoid the risk of your current furniture not fitting in your new space’s floor-plan. When you purchased your current furniture, you may have had your old office space in mind. Your new location may be smaller or larger than your previous space, and the old furniture just may not fit.
If you buy new furniture for the office you’re moving into though, you have the ability to shape your purchase for your new space. Rather than fitting a large desk into a small room, simply sell the old desk and trade it in for a smaller desk that is better suited for the space.
2. Buy New Office Furniture to Fit a New Aesthetic
Just as square footage matters, appearance is also a big deal in a new office. Your furniture needs to match your space’s aesthetic to create a more pleasant atmosphere for both you and your employees. To make sure you create a pleasant atmosphere with appropriate furniture, consider other aspects of your new area outside of the floor plan.
How much natural lighting does the new space have? If the natural lighting differs from your previous space’s lighting, your furniture may change the look of the office entirely.
The color of the walls could clash with your older furniture as well. For instance, dark furniture may clash with a dark color on the walls or make the room feel gloomy. Many problems can be easily avoided by starting with a blank slate and buying new furniture, specific to the new space.
3. New Furniture Will Last Longer
Your old furniture may be ready for an update. Moving offices may give you the perfect opportunity to upgrade. Rather than furnishing your new space with older furniture, simply replace it instead. Newer furniture will age with the new building not having the same wear-and-tear as the old furniture. A change in scenery can also be a valuable investment in your employees’ happiness and productivity.
4. Allows for Evaluation of What Is and Is Not Necessary
Over years of being in the same space, offices can get cluttered. You may have gotten a new desk that was a steal at the time but subtracts from the limited space you have available. Think of selling your office furniture as spring cleaning. Selling gives you a chance to consider what is really necessary for your space and what is not.
When having a chance to buy everything again, you may realize that the three plastic filing cabinets you bought last year may be too much. Instead, you may decide to downsize to one or none at all. Moving allows for reevaluation, which can be the best thing for a new space.
5. Ultimately, It Is Easier To Sell or Donate
Convenience is another reason to buy new furniture rather than moving old furniture. Rather than focusing on the hassle of packing old furniture, sell it instead. As moving is a stressful time, selling the previous furniture can simply make it easier on you.
