In today’s world, we all spend a lot of time at our place of work, whether that consists of a busy office or a work-from-home setup. As such, it is vital that these spaces are curated to respond to our daily needs, where essentials such as stationery, coffee machines and desk furniture can help to make the work environment more comfortable.
Office furniture is one such staple, where tables and chairs are the cornerstone pieces of a workplace. These can be bought new or sourced second-hand. Although it can be tempting to splash out on brand new and unused furnishings for your office, there are many benefits of investing in refurbished pieces instead.
Read on for a look at why refurbished furniture is the best choice for your office space.
As new furniture is often mass produced, it can be the case that everyone ends up with the same pieces. This makes for an unoriginal and uninspiring office setup. In contrast, refurbished pieces are usually one-offs or are only available in a limited number, meaning you are guaranteed to achieve a sense of uniqueness for your interior.
Although new mass produced furniture can be cheap, new designer or branded pieces will still be expensive if you’re looking for high end decor. As such, you can save by choosing refurbished branded furniture, where you can still enjoy attractive designer pieces but at a better price.
A tendency to always buy new is incredibly harmful for our planet, where this leads to an increased use of our finite resources and contributes to waste production and landfill accumulations. Investing in preloved or refurbished furniture means that you are recycling pre-existing products. This is the greener choice, which can help you to promote a sustainable brand identity for your business.
New furniture is often not made to the same standards as older or designer pieces. This is because traditional materials and techniques often produce harder-wearing and long lasting items, compared to new mass produced pieces. It is therefore worthwhile to choose refurbished furniture if you’d prefer a higher quality selection.
Buying refurbished pieces is also a good investment, where vintage designer furniture is likely to increase in value over time. In comparison, brand new furniture loses value quickly, meaning refurbished products are a better bet if you do decide to sell.
