How To Create A Cool Modern Office In 2016

Modern Office Design TipsThe new year is upon us and we couldn't be more excited. If you're tackling an office makeover project in 2016, you're in luck! Industry leading brands like Mayline, Global Total Office, and OFM have all introduced super cool new modern furniture that will kick your interior appeal into high gear. In today's post we'll show you how to craft an incredible modern workspace without breaking the budget. Enjoy!

Office Space Planning TipsAll professional makeovers start with effective space planning. Before you rush out and purchase new office furniture for your interior, take the time to measure. Start by obtaining the perimeter dimensions of your space. Take note of all entry ways, power outlets, windows, and load bearing members that will affect the way your furniture fits. Draw your dimensions out on paper and make some copies. Sketch in a few layout ideas and determine which one will work best. Consider what direction your desk should be facing, where storage products should be located, and how you can keep your guests comfortable.

Modern Office ChairWith a plan of attack, you're ready to start shopping! As office comfort starts with the chair, this is the best place to start. Rest assured, you'll be at no shortage of stylish office seating solutions to choose from.

Crafting a high end space? We recommend popular office chairs like the Arti, Vion, and G20 from Global Total Office. These luxurious chairs offer the absolute best ergonomic features and will no doubt have you sitting in comfort all day long.

iDesk Task SeatingLooking to save a few bucks without sacrificing comfort? We recommend iDesk office seating from Cherryman Industries. Cost effective iDesk task chairs like the Oroblanco and Ambarella boast built in guides for user comfort, natural lumbar support, adjustable arms, and multi functional mechanisms with easy to use controls.

In the long run, the office chair is only as good as it's operator. A modern chair with top of the line features will only be effective if you take the time to master them. When your chair arrives, read the manual thoroughly and don't throw it out with the packaging. If you select a name brand chair, demo videos will be widely available on YouTube. They really come in handy!

Modern U Shaped DeskOnce you've selected a chair, it's time to build the workstation that goes around it. The Mayline Medina collection is the most popular modern office furniture line available. We highly recommend it. Medina offers a wide range of preconfigured executive desk layouts that will meet the needs of any space. With trend setting finish options like textured sea salt, brown sugar, and gray steel, making your space stand out from the competition is easier than ever. The Zira collection from Global Total Office and Verde from Cherryman Industries are other popular modern furniture lines that deserve honorable mention. If you're not feeling the Medina series, give these alternative lines a look!

For larger office spaces, go with a U desk configuration as they offer the most work surface space. Most U desks can be configured in both right and left handed variations to meet the needs of your space. To be on the safe side, clarify this important detail with your dealer before making your purchase.

Modern Wall Desk for Corner OfficeStuck dealing with a smaller space? No need to worry! Consider options like stand alone desks, L shaped desks, and smaller computer desks with modern appeal from the same great brands listed above.

Dual Monitor ArmWith your desk configuration selected, it's time to modernize your space with the addition of 3 key ergonomic accessories. Start with the dual screen monitor arm. With a quality monitor arm you'll be able to raise your screens to eye level and reduce visual strain. You'll also be increasing usable desk space, improving functionality, and enhancing appeal! Next, select a sit to stand articulating keyboard tray that will work with your desk. Brands like ESI Ergonomic Solutions and Symmetry Office provide universal keyboard trays that offer sit to stand mechanisms designed to promote continuous movement in the workplace and improve blood flow. Start your keyboard tray search with these brands! Lastly, you'll want to incorporate an under-mount CPU holder. Leaving your CPU on the ground is dangerous. You're susceptible to water damage and theft at all times. Getting your CPU you secure and off the ground will provide you with more useable knee space and less pesky trips underneath the desk to plug in devices and route wires.

Modern Wall CabinetLast but certainly not least, no modern office space would be complete without the addition of versatile storage products. Ditch the old metal file cabinets and consider going with a combo filing and storage unit that matches your desk finish. If you go with any of the collections listed above, you'll have plenty of options to choose from.

Modern Office StorageLimited on floor space? Don't fret! Space saving storage solutions are available. We recommend hutch. Units are available to sit on top of your desk configuration, or mount directly to perimeter walls. You can also incorporate mobile desk pedestals. They come in handy for stationary and file storage. Mobile pedestals can be easily slid underneath desks when not in use to help maximize your square footage.

In conclusion, creating a modern office can be a fun and rewarding process. Take your time and make your furniture and seating selections carefully. Don't be afraid to visit a local showroom in your local area for inspiration. You can also visit social sharing sites like Pinterest and Instagram. You'll be rewarded with lot's of great ideas and tips on how to make your space the best it can be. Happy remodeling!
