7 New Years Resolutions For A Better Office Life

New Years Resolution Ideas
With the new year just around the corner, we know you guys are all getting those resolutions ready. That being said, we thought it would be fun to share 5 office related resolutions that will improve your life in the workplace. Here's to an awesome 2015!

1.) Be More Ergo Friendly

This one deserves a spot at the top of the resolution list! Being ergo friendly means providing yourself with the tools necessary to work comfortably, effectively, and efficiently throughout those long days at the office. Using quality ergonomic chairs and a combination of popular computer accessories will definitely help, but being ergo friendly means educating yourself regularly on the various ways to improve your work life while avoiding fatigue and common stressors that do us all harm. Commit to being more ergo friendly in 2015 and enjoy the rewards!

2.) Go To Bed Earlier

Going to bed earlier will no doubt improve your office life. Feeling groggy at work and overly fatigued is commonly a result of poor rest the night before. In 2015, be sure to get your full 8 hours to ensure you are ready to give your best.

3.) Eat Breakfast Every Day

Believe it or not, most of us are in such a rush every morning that we zoom out the door without eating a decent breakfast. All too often we make breakfast for our children and never take a moment to consider the benefits for ourselves. As breakfast is the foundation for a quality day, be sure to eat a little something every morning before hitting the office. A piece of fruit, yogurt, breakfast bar, or muffin are all easy to incorporate into your morning routine so there's no excuses with this resolution!

4.) Build Better Workplace Relationships

Take the time to communicate with your coworkers more in 2015. If you build strong relationships with your teammates, you'll become an unstoppable force ready for the rigorous demands of modern business. You'll also make some new friends which is always a good thing! Hosting a pot luck, picnic, or other workshop will provide the perfect avenue to get this resolution started on the right foot.

5.) Get More Organized

An organized office is an effective office! If your space is cluttered and in disarray it's time to come up with a system for office optimization. Start by arranging your important documents effectively in file cabinets and desk side pedestals. Next clear your office of unnecessary debris including candy wrappers, chip bags, and all that other stuff that naturally accumulates throughout the day. Now set aside 15 minutes every Friday for cleaning and organization. This will ensure you start every week off with an organized space ready to work for you!

6.) Eat Healthier Lunches

We all love a good burger and fries, unfortunately they don't love us back! This year it's time to focus on eating healthier lunches at work. If you plan your lunches in advance you'll be much better equipped for success. Consider looking up some good recipes online so you don't get overwhelmed with a salad overdose. If you want, make a Friday a cheat day to reward yourself for being a healthy eater all week! Going healthier and avoiding those pricey fattening lunches will have you ready to tackle the rest of your day with more energy and pep.

7.) Create A Sustainable Exercise Routine

Finding the time to exercise is never easy, but if you create a sustainable routine with a teammate you'll be poised for success. Talk with your fellow office friends to see if anyone is considering a new gym or workout schedule. Consider teaming up a couple days each week after work. This will help you hold each other accountable and will no doubt lead to a healthier lifestyle at home and at the office! If you can't get out of the office to work out, consider deskercising. Yep, you read that right, deskercising! This is one of the latest trends that involves simple stretches and exercises that you can do at your office desk for a healthier and more ergo friendly work life,

The 6 Point Office Chair Safety Inspection

Office Chair Safety Tips
If you've had your office chair for more than a year, it's time for a quick safety inspection! In today's post we'll highlight the 6 important steps you'll need to take to ensure your chair is ready, willing, and able to handle your workplace needs safely. Enjoy!

1.) Casters

When checking your office chair, you'll want to start from the ground up. Start by flipping your chair over on it's side. Next, inspect the casters thoroughly. You'll wan to remove any debris that could hinder the mobility of your chair. All too often paperclips, tumb tacks, and rubber bands get stuck in casters. This makes office chairs unstable and unsafe!

2.) Pneumatic Cylinder

The pneumatic cylinder is the main point of contact between your chair's base and mechanism. This important feature controls the height of your chair and is also a main factor in stability. Over time the pneumatic cylinder can become loose in the mechanism. If you wobble your chair back and forth and the base seems stable but the seat wiggles, try disconnecting the mechanism from the cylinder. Next inspect the parts, clean them, and reattach securely. Rest assured, you do not want to sit down in an ergonomic chair only to have it fall over because of a bad connection between the cylinder and mechanism!

3.) Arms

Adjustable arms have become the standard on most of today's best selling computer chairs, task chairs, and executive office seating solutions. Over the course of time, chair arms will become loose if they are used regularly. About one a year, check the screws connecting your chair arms to the seat of your office chair to ensure they are tight and secure.

4.) Mechanism

The mechanism located underneath your seat is essentially your chairs central nervous system. This is the main area you'll want to focus on when looking over your chair as it controls the majority of your adjustable functions. First an foremost, ensure that your mechanism is attached securely to the chair seat. Next, maintenance your office chair by adding a touch of lubrication to the mechanism and cylinder joint. Lastely, ensure that the paddles and tension knobs coming off the side of your mechanism are operating effectively. You can also lubricate these joints just to be safe. WD40 should work just fine! The more advanced your office chair is, the more often you'll want to inspect the mechanism. More bells and whistles means more things that can go wrong. In fact, some of today's most high end office chairs have up to 6 adjustment handles coming of the mechanism! Protect your investment and be sure to inspect this essential part of your office chair.

5.) Tilt

Have you ever leaned back in an office chair and felt that free fall feeling? You're not alone, and it's usually only fun if you're a little kid. This common dilemma is caused by the tilt tension setting on your chair being too loose. In most cases the knob located on the side of your mechanism can be tightened and the issue can be quickly resolved. You'll want to set the tension to where a bit of pressure must be applied with your back to make the chair tilt. This is the safest and most ergo friendly way to go!

6.) Upholstery

Believe it or not, your office chair upholstery can actually be unsafe. All too often our work environments and desks are shared by fellow coworkers. When you arrive at work everyday, be sure to wipe your chair down to remove germs. You don't want to be sitting in an office chair all day that was just accommodating an individual that was recently under the weather. Simple upholstery cleaner and even leather wipes are nice to have on hand at all times to keep your office chair looking great, and germ free.

7 Cool Deskorations for the Holiday Season

Decorating for the holidays is a fun experience that the whole family can take part in - but that doesn't mean the fun has to stay at home! Bringing some of that festive cheer into the workplace with bright lights and pretty snowflakes is an excellent way to bring everyone together! For all the elves busy at their own workshops this season, we hope you enjoy these festive decorating tips for the office!

Twinkling Lights



Lights are practically the spirit of the holidays! Wherever you go, twinkling lights and candles are meant to warm everyone's heart - no matter what you celebrate! Hobby stores are bursting with decorative office lighting for sale this time of year. Next time you go, don't be afraid to pick up a few lights to glow softly around door frames, desks, and cubicles in the office.

Computer Contest



The computer monitor is one of the most underrated pieces of equipment designers neglect to take advantage of when decorating. This holiday season, we invite you to have a computer decorating contest with your coworkers! Dress up single and dual screen monitor arms in reindeer ears and red noses, menora screensavers, or kwanza colors depending on what you celebrate. For a neutral party, building a mini hearth with a moving fireplace download certainly spreads holiday warmth. Personalized stockings with candy prizes for the winner will hang lovelily on their new fireplace!

Scented Candles



Everybody loves the smells of the winter season. Whether your preference is Peppermint Party, Winter Pine, Merry Maple, or Snowberry, subtle holiday scents do wonders for an overworked office. Best of all, they usually don't offend anyone's celebratory style! Check with your nearby coworkers to see if they have any allergies to candles or air fresheners first. If they don't, brew up some hot cocoa in the breakroom and enjoy the festive fragrance!

Going Greenery



Choosing affordable green furniture by Global Office and similar brands is always a trendy decision, but how about going a little greener with holiday plants? Craft stores are always sporting plenty of faux holiday firs, wreathes, garlands, and mini Christmas trees that won't cramp your eco-friendly style this season. Living decorations like pinecones, poinsettias, and lilies looks beautiful around the cubicles, and can even help improve indoor air quality if planted. A few colorful ornaments on the ends will help give your plants an extra Christmas-y kick!

Workplace Winter Wonderland


Few decorating tips are better than the ones that save money. Thankfully, most offices already have everything they need to sport a winter wonderland look! With some coworkers, take a few sheets from the printer and use some affordable office accessories to cut out and decorate paper snowflakes. With paperclips or hooks, hang them from the ceiling along with some tinsel to really freeze your friends this year! Personalized ornaments with coworkers' names also make wonderful hanging decor.

Colorful Cubicles


Decorating stylish workstations and cubicles is one of the biggest joys office workers find this time of year. Instead of trying to decide on a them with your coworkers though, why not ask everyone to pick their favorite (or draw from a hat)? Themes like Gingerbread House, Santa's Workshop, Elsa's Castle, Whoville, Holiday Hearth, or Candyland can easily transform a cubicle into a party!

Spirited Sweets


No matter what you celebrate, holiday food is always enjoyable! One of the best ways to win the hearts of coworkers any time of year is with sweet and savory treats. Decorating modern break room tables with snickerdoodles, candy canes, peppermints, cocoa packets, marshmallows, and s'mores will have everyone fat and happy for the holidays. Just don't forget to include ingredient lists for those who might have allergies!

We hope you've enjoyed these clever holiday deskorations for the office. We wish everyone a safe holiday season from OfficeFurnitureDeals.com!

Lobby Design Tips: 5 Do's and Don'ts for Makeover Success

Lobby Design Tips
Lobby design can projects can be a bit tricky to say the least. However, if you cover the basics and follow the simple guidelines highlighted in today's post,  you and your team will be set up for makeover success. The do's and don'ts showcased here will help you prevent common design mistakes while helping keep your space up to date with the latest trends.

Do: Measure Effectively

Any interior design team, decorator, or furniture specialist will tell you that the first step to lobby makeover success is always measuring effectively. Start by obtaining the perimeter dimensions of your space. Be sure to notate all power outlets, entry ways, windows, and room obstructions. Once complete, double check your work to be sure. Like they always say, measure twice and cut once!

Don't: Guesstimate

Simply assuming the dimensions of your space is a sure fire way to end up in deep trouble when! All too often shoppers purchase reception seating and accent furniture with the hope that it will fit correctly. This usually ends very badly and can be easily avoided by taking the time to measure effectively.

Do: Sketch Layouts

Sketching layout ideas for your space will provide you with valuable insight on how your new lobby furniture will fit in your space. Before you start the shopping process, grab a piece of paper and draw a rough outline of your room. Determine how many guests you want to accommodate and draw seating and accent furniture in accordingly. Play around with a few different layout ideas to see what you feel will work best for your business needs.

Don't: Visualize

Once again, simply assuming a specific chair will fit perfectly in a specific spot is not smart! While it's okay to visualize a beautiful lobby for your business, it's not okay to tackle your whole project based on visualizations of how things will fit in certain areas. Take the time to write down where chairs and lobby tables will be placed to ensure a smooth transition into your new space.

Do: Use Modern Lighting Fixtures

Those looking to take their lobby spaces to the next level will want to use cool lighting fixtures to make their spaces shine. The use of drop lighting, lamps, and recessed lighting will bring your space to life. Consider visiting a professional office lighting store in your area for inspiration. You'll be glad you did!

Don't: Settle for Building Grade Fixtures

The lighting fixtures installed by the construction team who built your building are no bueno! These commercial fixtures are typically quite cheap looking and really suck power. The money saved by adding energy efficient fixtures over time is simply too great to ignore. If you're wanting your lobby to earn the compliments it deserves, get rid of those boring fluorescents.

Do: Use Tablet Arm Seating

Tablet arm lounge chairs and lobby seating solutions provide valued guests with a more comfortable visiting experience. Tablet arm chairs also add an extra element of cool to any lobby area. These versatile seating solutions will no doubt earn your space high grades from visitors on a daily basis. Keep you lobby makeover up to date with the latest trends and use tablet arm chairs. Brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and OFM all offer cool tablet arm chair models like the Santa Cruz that will no doubt boost your corporate appeal.

Don't: Use Fabric Chairs

While several cool and durable fabric upholstery options are no doubt available from high end lobby seating manufacturers, your best bet is to use vinyl and leather. In most cases, fabric shows wear much more easily and simply won't last your businesses long enough to justify the investment. Higher grade fabrics from brands like Global Total Office and Lesro Industries are very nice, but for the money... why not choose leather and create a more luxurious feel to your space? In a nut shell, low grade fabrics won't hold up and high grade fabrics cost around the same price as leather. Invest your money in an upholstery option that will impress guests while looking great for years to come.

Do: Paint Before Installation

It's a smart idea to get rid of those lack luster taupe finishes no doubt droning out your office vibe. If you're planning to paint, there's simply no better time to do it than before furniture arrives. Get your team together on a weekend and throw a lobby painting and pizza party. While this may be a hard sell, it sure beats painting around your brand new furniture and hoping to avoid spills!

Don't: Paint Around Furniture

So you decided to paint your lobby once your new furniture was professionally installed? If this was the case, you no doubt spent twice the time needed and had to pray for no spills and unwanted drips. Any designer will tell you that paining before furniture is installed is an absolute must. You simply don't want to risk it. If you must paint after furniture is installed, use tarps and drop cloths to cover your seating and tables. This will help to prevent accidents and should be enough to keep your new furniture safe!
