Office Design Advice: Maximizing Wall Space

Any good architect will tell you, the best way to maximize space is to build up rather than out. In the office, square footage can become pretty limited. Trying to find the best way to make use of that limited space may seem like a daunting challenge, but don't fret. In today's article, we're sharing our favorite space saving secrets to help you win the most from your workplace, from floor to ceiling!

The Big Pictures


If you work in an office building, sometimes a scenic view can be hard to come by. But whether you work at home or in a skyscraper, wall art is one of the best ways to showcase your business and jazz up the office for guests! Any kind of art helps to open up the space in a solid-painted room by making things seem bigger than a blank wall.
Photographs are one of the most popular choices, particularly for windowless places, because they help to provide a sense of escape, like a window that reduces claustrophobia. Produced artwork is another popular choice because it offers a wide array of options for designers. With painted pictures, stencils, or abstracts, business owners may select pieces that match the interior of the room, showcase company colors, or illustrate the company motto. Either way, your office guests are bound to be dazzled!

Wall Hutches


For all the places where paintings don't go, wall hutches are an ideal space-filler. Not only that, but they also serve a useful purpose! Wall hutches provide storage for all the extra trimmings an office needs to function. Copy paper, sticky-note stacks, tape rolls, calculators, spare light bulbs - they all fit easily into hutches and office storage units. But don't stop there! Adding filing cabinets and bookshelves can also provide much needed vertical storage that won't eat up your floor space. Your office will be clutter-free in no time!

Presentation Boards


With massive tables and an army of chairs in the way, conference tables can be one of the most difficult rooms to work in. Most office boardrooms are limited solely to discussion and powerpoint projection. However, there is an easy way to turn any conference room into a sanctuary for sharing ideas. Adding office presentation boards to a workplace frees visionaries to share as fast as they can think. They also provide excellent impromptu drawing canvases, notepads, message boards, and so much more. Many of the best office furniture brands design presentation boards with closable doors for discreetness and security. Cork panels and magnetized dry-erase walls are just a few extra bonus features that make these all-in-one boards a must have office tool!

TVs


Remember how we talked about paintings providing windows to the outside world? Well, those that want a little extra will certainly appreciate pictures that move! Televisions are becoming one of the most commonly used office tools for guest entertainment. Ideal as an addition to lobby and waiting room furniture, flatscreen televisions do not take up much space. Pediatricians, dentists, and offices with long customer wait times find them invaluable, serving a purpose without taking up space. Prop them up on flatscreen TV mounts to mesmerize your patients and guests!

Lighting


And last but not least, we leave you with the oldest trick in the book to maximize your wall space - lighting! Back in the day, architects used clever design to expand the daylight and brighten up the gothic cathedrals of ancient Europe, making them seem all the more massive. Today, designers use the same light tricks to maximize the space in offices through optical illusion. Whether you have fancy lighting fixtures, windows, or affordable desk lamps, plentiful dramatic lighting still remains one of the best ways to fool the eye into thinking a space is bigger. So if your office feels cramped and clustered, don't be afraid to "let there be light!"

Good Habits Are Your Best Office Assets!

Form Good Habits At Work
To reach peak performance levels in the office, we must form good habits! From eating healthy to practicing good posture tips, following a good daily routine with superior accuracy will ensure personal productivity. In today's post we'll highlight the 4 key habit areas to focus on to help you operate at your best. Enjoy!

Sleep

A good work day starts with a good nights rest. We all need a solid 8 hours to make it through the work day without suffering from fatigue. While we might be able to start strong out of the gate with minimal rest, maintaining a high performance level is incredibly difficult. Create a structured sleep plan by setting a reasonable bed time. Don't stay up all night watching movies and eating junk food! Get to bed early enough to ensure you're up with plenty of time to get ready for work. No more rushing out the door and starting your work day at a frantic pace. Commit to good sleep habits and reap the daily rewards!

Eating

Now it's time to start eating healthy! Breakfeast is yet another key pillar of every solid work day. Jump start your metabolism every day with a healthy breakfast. If you're limited on time, a piece of fruit, yogurt, or healthy muffin is better than nothing! Save the bacon, eggs, and pancakes with syrup for the weekend! During the week, eating healthy will provide you with the energy you need to make it through those long days at the office. Forming good breakfast habits is an absolute must. This asset offers too many benefits to pass up.

In addition to eating a healthy breakfast, don't set your work day back by pounding down a cheese burger and fries at lunch. Consider a healthy wrap, salad, or a little something on the lighter side. If you can, squeeze in a piece of fruit to boost your energy levels and go light on the condiments! We've all dealt with that mid day groggy feeling that comes from over eating at lunch time. Put good habits in place to avoid these dreadful productivity attacks!

Posture

Did you know that sitting for extended periods of time can actually shorten your lifespan. A staggering amount of workers report major health problems, aches, and pains that are directly related to sitting incorrectly each year. This tells us that it's time to form some good posture habits! Start by synchronizing your office chair and workstation. Set the height of your chair to keep your desk surface just above the naval. Next, adjust your chair arms to ensure you are operating at the correct computing position. 

Once your chair and desk are synchronized, it's time to start putting your chair's ergonomic attributes to good use. Most all computer chairs manufactured after 1990 claim to be ergo friendly in one way or another. While not all chairs are created equal, it's highly likely that your chair is outfitted with at least a few user friendly features that can be used as assets throughout your workday. Master the mechanism located underneath the seat of your office chair. This is will ensure you are ready to find the optimal operating position at a moments notice!

Studies have shown that workers who place posture tips and ergonomic reminders around their workstation report signs of improved comfort. Let's highlight a few good posture tips to get you started on the path to sitting successfully! 
  • Keep back in contact with chair at all times
  • Avoid over reaching
  • Don't cross legs
  • Keep feet flat on ground
  • Stand up and stretch once every hour
  • Use ergonomic tools (monitor arms, foot rests, etc.)
Organization

The last key office habit area you'll need to focus on is organization! You can't very well operate at your best if you're sitting in a mess workstation. Before you leave work every day, be sure to take 10 minutes to reorganize your workstation. This will ensure you don't start the following day dealing with a mess. If you work in a shared space, try posting reminders to get your team involved. While this is typically easier said than done, it's better than nothing! 

Be sure to utilize the organizational tools at your disposal. All too often workers leave files and important documents strewn across the office and fail to make use of the overhead storage hutch, file cabinet, or desk pedestal that's less than an arms length away. You can label the outsides of your cabinets and list the contents so you know just where to find everything you need. If the contents of your cabinets are always changing, consider using a dry erase board! 

Keep your personal belongings in a secure place that's close by. Typically, a desk pedestal will do the trick. Be sure to attach the key to your keyring, or keep it some place safe. Sadly, too many workers leave those keys in the the lock! In the long run, organization will make a huge different in productivity. This key asset can make or break your work day. Form the good habits needed to maintain a functional, versatile, and well organized office interior!

Functionality + Comfort = Ergonomic!

Want to go ergo? You'll need to combine functionality and comfort! These two essential elements of workplace versatility work together to create out of this world ergonomic interiors. In today's post we'll showcase awesome office products that do just that. Enjoy!

Sit To Stand Office FurnitureSit to stand office desks are the latest ergonomic craze. That being said, we naturally decided to kick today's article off by highlighting the super cool sit to stand workstations available in 2015! This year brands like ESI and Global Total Office have introduced cool new workstations that adjust up and down electronically. These versatile stations encourage continuos movement and improve blood flow. If you want to improve functional and comfort, an adjustable height desk may be the perfect solution for you!

Articulating Keyboard Tray
In recent years, a simple keyboard tray that simply slid underneath your desk surface would of been acceptable. However, as ergonomic technology has reached new heights, the classic keyboard tray has been drastically improved. Articulating computer keyboard trays have now become the industry standard. These adjustable units allow users to change the angle and height at which they compute. This creates improved functionality, improved comfort while typing, and a lot more ergonomic benefits you can't afford to miss!

Adjustable CPU HolderStill venturing under your desk to route wires and plug in devices? Ouch! These trips are no fun for you or your back. Luckily, they can be avoided! If you're looking to skip the sea of crumbs and candy wrappers that are no doubt waiting for you during your adventures underneath the desk, it's time to incorporate a CPU holder. Available for under a hundred and fifty bucks, a CPU holder is a modern must have for any space. These handy devices mount directly underneath desk surfaces on retractable tracks that allow them to be quickly accessed when needed, and slid back out of the way when not. This means, no more banging your knees on your CPU when computing, and no more straining your back to plug in your phone for a quick charge.

Drifter Portable Power Module
Where have you been all our lives? Power modules are revolutionizing the way we work! Much like HD televisions, power modules where once considered luxury items that were overly expensive. As the demand increased, more and more top manufacturers hopped on board and brought the price point down to a more reasonable level! Brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and Cherryman Industries all offer excellent conference room table models that can be equipped with factory installed power modules designed to improve meeting performance and efficiency. Already have your conference table? No problem! Check out awesome power solutions like the ISLE and Drifter modules from Symmetry Office. These units can be moved from room to room as needed, when needed!

Single Screen Monitor ArmDon't settle for the fixed base monitor stand that came with your computer. If you want to up your ergonomic credentials, you've got to incorporate an adjustable monitor arm into your workspace. Single and dual screen mounting systems are the most popular. However, computer monitor arms that hold up to 12 screens are now available on the market. This tells us that users are tired of clicking between tabs and closing out screens repeatedly throughout the work day! A monitor arm will instantly increase your usable desk space while proving you with limitless adjustment capabilities. Maximize your work day by adding a monitor arm. You'll be glad you did!

Selecting The Right Office Chair for Your Body Type Is Essential!

Selecting the right office chair can be a difficult process without the helpful tips and ergonomic knowledge needed to make an educated purchasing decision. While a certain office chair may be an excellent option for you, it might not be for your coworker. As they say, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. The same holds true when it comes to office chair comfort. With the advice provided in today's post, you'll be ready to find the perfect office chair for your body type. Enjoy!

Type A:

Smaller chair operators will want to avoid bulky office chairs for their space. Petite users should focus on low and mid back task chairs for day to day operation, as well as some executive style chairs for higher end interiors. Low and mid back office chairs provide excellent support and don't lack in terms of ergonomic features. Brands like Global Total Office, Mayline, and Eurotech Seating offer excellent chairs for smaller workers. If you're under five and a half feet tall, there's no real need for fancy chair upgrades like headrests as you'll probably not be able to reach them to effectively gain the support they provide. Focus on a chair that focuses on you! Low and mid back chairs harness their ergonomic energies towards lumbar and mid back areas, the perfect place for you!

Chair Suggestions:

  • Yorkdale Chair
  • Azeo Chair
  • Experience
  • Granada

Type B:

If you fall between 5'6" tall and 6' tall, the world is your oyster when it comes to selecting an office chair. While a low back chair may not provide the effective support you'll need to make it through those long days at the office, pretty much any other chair style can get the job done. Medium back and some high back chairs should be the primary focus for type B chair operators. These types of ergonomic chairs will be easy to operate and integrate into your workspace.

Chair Suggestions:

  • Curva
  • Ambarella
  • Oroblanco
  • Frasso

Type C:

Larger individuals will want to focus their office chair search on high back models. High back office chairs provide excellent upper back and neck support that taller individuals will need to operate comfortably behind the desk. Chairs with headrests are often classified as high back models as they exceed the typical chair height by several inches. In addition, if you weigh over 250 pounds, a big and tall chair may be the way to go. Brands like Global Total Office, Eurotech, and OFM provide high quality big and tall chairs that are capable of supporting users up to 500 pounds.

Chair Suggestions:

  • Loover
  • Alero
  • Ergohuman
  • Avenger

When shopping for your next office chair, be sure to ask yourself important buying questions. What ergonomic features will be most helpful? What are my current areas of office discomfort? What is my budget? Determining the right chair for your body type means analyzing your body! Don't be afraid to test out several chairs to determine what works best for you. Physician's and ergonomic seating specialists will be happy to provide you with helpful tips and chair suggestions. In the long run, your office chair is an investment in comfort and workplace productivity. Making it count is a must!

Are You Computing Correctly?

Computing isn't all about cyber know-how. It's also about proper maintenance - and the computer is only as good as it's user. In the modern workplace, computers are a regular fixture, so it's important to know how to keep both yourself and your computer running smoothly. That's why, in today's article, we're sharing plenty of ergonomic and cyber tips to help you compute correctly!

Stretch


Anyone whose ever fallen asleep at their desk knows how difficult it can be to stay focused and comfortable in the office. That's why we recommend stretching as our first tip! Taking periodic stretch breaks not only wakes you up and keeps you focused, but it's also extremely healthful. Don't be afraid use ergonomic task chairs as exercise equipment. The internet is filled with plenty of office-friendly exercises enliven your work day. Plus, stretching also keeps you limber and helps reduce pain, so you can always say it's for medicinal reasons if coworkers give you weird looks!

Flex Those Abs



Bad posture is one of the worst causes of office related pain known to man, with slouching being the number one culprit. Of course, it's hard to keep your torso upright for eight hours a day, but thankfully, it's nothing a few good workouts can't fix. At home (or at the gym), remember to tone that core with plenty of crunches and pushups. Your abdominal muscles are the key to good posture because they are what helps support the spine. Work good posture into your daily routine by tying your shoulders to your office chair or investing in sit to stand desks for a more healthful work style.

Get Adjusted


One of the most important, yet overlooked, aspects of computing is the physical relationship between the user and their workstation. Before anyone touches that keyboard, take the time to research and accurately adjust desks and workstations to the proper positions for each user. Most desks and chairs with modern design will provide plenty of adjustable ergonomic features. Ideally, the body needs to be a series of right angles. Start with the chair, making sure your knees bend at 90 degrees, with your feet flat on the floor to avoid stressing the legs. The elbows should be bent at 90 degrees, with the wrists and hands parallel to the forearms - the desk height needs to be adjusted to your hands, not the other way around. And finally, the back should be upright in it's natural S-shape, with the lumbar gently cradled by your office chair.

Cyber Cleaning


Finally, we can begin computing! But first, every computer user should become familiar with computer maintenance procedures. Just like the human body, computers will become slow and tired without proper care and plenty of sleep. Take the time once a week to clear caches, empty the digital recycle bin, and run a virus scan to ensure your computer is healthy. At the end of every work day, be sure to turn off your computer or set it to "sleep." This allows the computer time to reboot and rid itself of malware. The extra effort will help your computer to run much faster!

Eye Exam


Now that you're ready for computation, it's important to remember some personal maintenance tips as you work. In addition to periodic stretching to relieve tension, it's also important to rest your eyes. Computer-related eye strain is a very common problem in the workplace. Viewing a computer in an overly dark or bright room, or without corrective lenses, can force the eyes to work harder, leading to headaches and poor vision health. Ergonomic monitor arms reduce pain not just in the eyes, but also in the body if you are leaning forward to see the screen. A properly adjusted computer monitor should be arm's length away from the face, at eye level when the person is sitting upright and face-forward. And lastly, take visual breaks. A short glance at something 20 feet away from you for 15 seconds should be enough to rest your eyes for another work session!
