Sometimes it’s better to make a highlight of your filing cabinet than to pretend it’s not there or try to hide it. The fact is, we’ve all got important papers and records we need to store, and it takes space to do that. A bright color can be enough to make a filing cabinet a showpiece, and when it’s set against a wall that helps it shine, so much the better. This chalkboard backdrop is just what this orange filing cabinet needed to make it really pop. Home offices are all about work and getting things done, so they are well suited to an industrial look. Find a metallic or rustic black filing cabinet and you’re one step closer to creating a workspace with this kind of edge. Next steps? A chair and desk that sing along with it. Think leather, aged wood and function over form. A filing system with multiple drawers removes the need for your files to hang vertically, and can be far less imposing in a home office. When it looks as good as this filing cabinet, there’s no reason not to make a change.
Sometimes less is more. The Walter is flat surface top with a drawer on each side. The rolled and hexagon steel legs gives the desk a feeling of floating in the air. The top and drawers are made from reclaimed oak wood making this one of the most environmentalist desks around. A little bit of the right music can stimulate and improve concentration and production. Or so I have heard. But do you really need an excuse to have a desk with built in speakers? Behind cabinet doors are two 4inch high efficiency full range drivers with titanium cones and paired with a 1/4inch subwoofer. The speakers can be used with wireless streaming for a wire free work surface. The Laura desk is writing desk that is simple yet functional and modern. The three cubbies at the back end hides two ports back in the shadow. There are two angled drawers for simple storage solutions for small items like pens, paperclips, smartphones and notebooks. The Locus Sphere workstation is another standing desk.
Placement of a Computer and Phone Most modern reception desk furniture is designed to be used with a computer and keyboard. When you are choosing which type of desk to use in the reception area, it is best to find one that allows the computer to be placed in the corner of the desk instead of in the center. The receptionist will divide his or her time between talking with customers over the middle of the desk and working with the computer. It is more inviting if the middle of the desk is clear so that conversations can be had comfortably. The phone should be placed beside the receptionist instead of over the center of the desk, as well Decorative Elements Reception desk furniture is practical, but it also needs to be somewhat personal. The furniture in the reception area needs to be lightly decorated so that it seems more inviting and less cold. Nice reception desk decorations can include small flower arrangements or photos that deal with the type of business that the firm does.
Ergonomics are Important Reception desk furniture needs to be designed so that a person sitting at the furniture all day will be comfortable. Ergonomics provide the optimal design for an office desk, chair, computer keyboard, monitor, and telephone. Each item needs to be in comfortable reach of the receptionist without causing too much clutter on the desk top. The chair should offer a good amount of back support for the receptionist who will spend up to 8 hours sitting there each day.
