Thinking about remodeling your business’ office space? Lucky for you, Better Office Furniture in St. Charles has a surplus of stationary desk chairs and office couches that are guaranteed to create the perfect setting.
As your local office furniture experts, we know that your office design says a lot about you as a leader and greatly influences the environment that your employees work in, and the space your clients visit. Studies over the years have shown that employees with comfortable and ergonomic desk chairs tend to be more productive and businesses have higher retention rates. Meanwhile, investing in an office couch provides an open environment for your employees to take a break during the day, rejuvenate and feel a greater creative balance in their work. In addition, good stationary desk chairs and office couches can be the perfect touch to your office space for your clientele, as it invites them to be an integral part of your office family by offering a sense of being at home. This is, in part, because the atmosphere of your office setting directly impacts the mood, tone, body language, and energy experienced in daily business life.
Why stationary desk chairs are a valuable addition to your office
Better Office Furniture believes that an office chair should be both built to last and comfortable, without sacrificing your entire budget. It is one of the first investments that need to be made for you employees and executives, so you want to be sure to invest in high-quality office chairs, rather than buying a cheap box store chair that is bound to break in less than a year.
While we have previously discussed why ergonomic chairs are better for your employees, particularly rolling desk chairs, having beautifully crafted stationary desk chairs can really tie a room together for your customers. After all, you want your clients to feel welcomed when they walk in the door and be comfortable when sitting down in regular meetings or waiting in your reception area.
When choosing the right stationary chair, it is important to remember that there are a wide variety of body types, each of which require different forms of accommodation to find the optimum comfort for their shape and size. While your clients or employees are unlikely to spend a long amount of time in a stationary chair, and thus do not need the same ergonomic support as previously discussed, it is vital that they fit comfortably, have proper arm support, and have a comfortable cushion to sit on.

How an office couch can redefine your office space
While you might not realize it at first, an office couch can make all the difference for your employees and clients; whether in the reception area, set up as a relaxed meeting area, or in your executive office space.
Why, you ask?
When set up as a meeting area or in the reception space, it ensures that your entire office space functions at its highest capacity. Clients and customers will feel more relaxed when they enter your business, which can lead to more stimulating and effective interactions and potential sales. While your employees will have the ability to have a more relaxed meeting space to brainstorm and collaborate, or have the freedom to take a power nap at work. The latter can be particularly helpful in an office setting, because businesses are more likely to suffer and be less productive if their employees are sleep deprived, which can lead to health issues like depression, attention and memory problems, and even cancer. In fact, studies in the last five-years have shown that even a ten-minute nap can help improve a person’s immunity, sustained energy, emotional stability, and cognitive functioning.
Furthermore, as a leader, having a couch in your office can be an essential component to demonstrating true, authentic and open leadership; allowing your employees to feel more relaxed during difficult discussions, like reviews and discussing their role, and ensuring your clients feel comfortable when having annual consultations. In other words, it allows all who enter to feel an additional element of transparency in the workplace and see the workplace culture as being more encouraging and open-minded.
