So you finally have started the business you’ve always dreamed about. Everything is coming together, and you couldn’t be prouder. But wait – what about your office?

Whether it is at home or in an office space, you need to choose the right furniture. Not only does furniture serve a functional duty, but it will also play a big part in the feel of the office, and if you have customers coming in, you want to convey the right message. Even if it is just a home space solely for you, you still want to convey that right mood to aid in your success.

Here are some tips in choosing the right furniture.

For Your Home Office

Starting a business can be scary; there can be a lot of unknowns you’re getting into. But you have control over your office space, and by choosing the right furniture and look, it will get you off to the right start.

·Get a good chair. No matter what kind of look you want, invest in a good office chair. You need to be comfortable to work; no one can be as efficient or friendly on the phone if her back is hurting. Don’t just go for looks or price here; this is something to invest in.

·Your desk should suit you. Depending on your business, you will have different desk needs. If you need space to spread out books or supplies, go for big and flat. If you are primarily working on a computer, your desk can be smaller. You can always personalize whatever size desk you get with hardware that fits your (and your business’s) personality. Hardware is a great way to revitalize an old or secondhand piece, or personalize something newer that may need that little something extra.

·Storage is essential. Whether it’s a few file boxes or fancy cabinets to hide everything, staying organized will help you be more productive. You may have to use some storage for home things, but make sure you keep your work material separate and organized, as well as easy to get to when you need it.

Some of the same components come into play, like the all-important desk chair and right-sized desk, but you also have these things to think about:

·Think about when clients come in. You want to have an area where you can meet with clients, and if you can fit a table and chairs, rather than meeting over your desk, it’s a bit better. You don’t need a big conference table with tons of chairs – just a coffee table and a couple of comfy chairs will do the trick for a meeting.

·Accessory furniture finishes a look. You may want to add a few other pieces of furniture, like end or side tables. Again, these can be finished off with pretty or unique hardware, too. It’s a great way to tie pieces together that originally didn’t come as a set, and adds a nice eclectic but cohesive feel.

Whether your office is in your home or in a separate place, make sure the furniture makes you feel like the professional you are now. No matter if your look and inspiration comes from shabby chic or clean modern, work with your style and what your business reflects. Those little things, like accessories and hardware, will make a nice difference, too. Best of luck!
