If the desk is too ostentatious, however, it will make your company seem less approachable. The office furniture you choose for your reception desk needs to be the most inviting piece of furniture in your office suite. Practical Considerations The purpose of reception desk furniture is to provide the receptionist with a place to perform his or her duties in a practical manner. It is also a place for customers or clients to ask for information or announce that they have arrived to meet with people who work in the offices. The desk needs to be able to accommodate all of the office supplies that a receptionist will need in order to fulfill his or her tasks without being too cluttered. A professional receptionist desk should have a panel that covers the front of the desk so that people who walk by can not see through to the receptionist’s legs. It also provides a handy place for storing items that are not in use.
Because even a two-drawer wood lateral file cabinet can accommodate reams of paper without hogging too much floor space, they are a top pick for home offices, medical offices, schools, government agencies, and any office that is required to hold large quantities of paper files. A Wood Lateral File Cabinet seems to enjoy more popularity than its cousin, the standard vertical Wood File Cabinet. They may be more sturdy due to the weight but at any rate they seem to do the job intended and are especially popular in the legal and medical professions. The Wood Lateral File Cabinet pictured is labeled as a Laminate Wood Lateral File Cabinet, 3 Drawer and Four Drawer and is marked with a hefty retail price of over $3900.00. It is a bit pricey but you have a choice of 24 colors (see color chart below) and it looks more like a built in cabinet instead of a normal wood lateral file cabinet.
This one though is much like buying a car. You want the base you get the base but all other additions to the desk is at an extra cost. One nice feature of this desk is that you can tilt it for a more ergonomic posture. You need to crank it manually to adjust the height but is easily done with the German crank system. This float wall desk is easy to mount to any wall type and can be used as a full desktop station or writing desk. The design enables you to use it as a standing desk or a traditional height sitting desk. The desk has a full surface slide out tray and wire management slot. This desk is taking the standing desk to a new level by adding a treadmill. The advantage is that you don’t need to gym after work as you did it the whole day already. The whisper quiet treadmill has a max speed of 2 mph and has all the normal bells and whistles of a treadmill with displays for speed, calories burned, distance covered and time.
If there is any one factor that you can change to make spending eight hours a day in an office easier, it’s your chair. There is no shortage of evidence proving that being stuck in a chair for too long can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and worsen back pain. In fact, sitting too much is even called worse than smoking. Many people who have office jobs develop problems like numbness, spinal misalignment, joint pain, neck pain, and herniated discs — usually from sitting too long on a poor quality chair without support. While you probably do not want to spend a lot of money on a chair, a high-quality ergonomic chair is an investment in your health, comfort and productivity. Two separate studies, published in 1990 and 2003, found productivity goes up more than 17% when individuals work in an ergonomic setting with an adjustable chair.
