Ask Yourself These 5 Questions Before Purchasing New Desks For The Office

Custom Modern office furniture Dallas

Are you looking for new office desks in your company? Desks are one of the most important pieces of furniture you can have in an office. Employees spend hours and hours every day sitting at their desks, so you want those desks to be easy to work at. And in the C-suite having a really nice solid wood desk can take a nondescript office to the next level. But before you run out and start buying desks, here are five questions to ask yourself.

1) Are The Desks Comfortable To Sit At?

People are going to be spending quite a bit of time at these desks, so you want to make sure they’re a comfortable place to sit and work. Ask the employees what they like and dislike about their current desks. Maybe they want more surface space or dislike the shape of a corner desk.

2) How Long Will This Furniture Last?

Office furniture is quite an investment, which means you want whatever you purchase to be high-quality. This is one of the best reasons to choose wood when you’re shopping for desks. You can expect solid wood furniture to last for years. Plus, solid wood isn’t going out of style. It’s going to look just as good in your office 5 or 10 years from now as it does today.

3) What Are We Using The Desks For?

Before deciding on size or style of desk, make sure you take your employees’ take work styles into account. The type of work they’re doing helps determine what type of desk they need. Someone whose job requires a computer with three monitors is going to need more desk space than someone with a laptop computer. Talk with your employees and find out what kind of desk will help them work more efficiently.

4) Do They Fit Our Office Space?

One of the great things about purchasing wood furniture from a place like Rustic+Modern is that we can customize the desks for you. You’ll get to choose the exact size that fits your office spaces. Plus you also have options in wood type, finish color, and overall furniture style so you can match the aesthetics of your office.

5) What Kind of Budget Do We Have?

You might think that solid wood furniture is going to fall outside your budget. But it doesn’t have to. For example, choosing alder instead of something like walnut or hickory for your wood type will help keep prices lower. Also, keep in mind that sturdy, long-lasting furniture should be seen as an investment that will save your company money in the long-run because you won’t have to replace the desks anytime soon.

Conference Tables

Business meetings, presentations, conferences – they all require a table large enough to seat the attendees. Here at Rustic + Modern, we create custom tables to your exact specifications. You can order something that’s exactly the right size for your room and for the number of people at your events.

Don’t settle for a generic, utilitarian conference table, especially in rooms where you’ll be meeting with clients and investors. A handcrafted solid wood table shows your good taste and appreciation for high quality. Even if people don’t comment, “Wow, this is an impressive table,” you’ll know the table is figuring into their positive impression of your company.

Office Desks

There are several factors in play when looking for a perfect office desk. The size needs to fit your work area – small enough to leave room to move around the office, but large enough to hold all your work. You’ll also want a comfortable height for working and a durable material.

Solid wood desks provide a classy, professional appearance with the durability you need in office furniture. And because you can customize the height, size, and style of Rustic + Modern furniture, you can make sure the desk fits your exact needs.

Reception Furniture

The reception area provides people entering your corporate office with their first impression of your business. Old, rickety, or cheap furniture gives a negative impression as soon as people walk through the doors. Quality furniture helps ensure a positive first impression.

We can provide end tables and coffee tables for your reception area. You choose the size, shape, style, and wood type. Whatever decorating style you’re going for, we can help by designing furniture to match.

Barn Doors

office-barn-door-dallas-texasBarn doors might not be the first thing you’d think of using in an office setting. But sliding doors let you leave rooms open without the doors taking up floor space or accidentally swinging shut. Sliding barn doors are also easy to close when you need privacy. This makes them perfect for meeting rooms and private offices. We also customize the look of our barn doors, so you can opt for the more familiar rustic-style barn doors or go for a more sleek, modern look with smooth woods and dark stains.

Here at Rustic + Modern, we’re known for detail and craftsmanship. We take the responsibility to create furniture uniquely suited to your exact needs very seriously. We’ll collaborate with architects, interior designers, builders, and you to create handcrafted pieces that are perfect for your commercial environment. Contact us today to learn more.

Higher Quality

All Rustic+Modern furniture is handmade from solid wood by professional craftsmen. This results in furniture that is very durable as well as aesthetically beautiful. While you’ll pay more for our furniture than something you pick up at a place like Nebraska Furniture or Pottery Barn, our quality reflects the higher price point.

Properly cared for, solid wood furniture can last for years and become an heirloom piece in your family. You shouldn’t have to replace furniture from Rustic+Modern anytime soon and if, over the course of many years, your solid wood furniture starts to show its age it can be refinished and made beautiful again.

Unique Pieces

When you shop at large furniture stores, most of the pieces are “cookie cutter” designs. There’s a limited selection of styles to choose from and little or no opportunity to customize the furniture to your specifications. That’s not the case with Rustic+Modern. We’ll work directly with you or your interior designer to come up with a piece that fits your space perfectly.

Let’s take tables as an example. You can choose a width of either 36 or 40 inches and a length of 4 to 10 feet for most styles. Our standard table height is 29 to 30 inches tall, but some styles can be made taller. You can also choose between two tabletop thicknesses: either 1 to 1-1/2 inches or 1-1/2 to 2 inches. On top of that, we offer several style variations in the Rustic, Modern, and Industrial collections as well as the opportunity to choose different wood types, stain colors, and finishing touches.

Personal Touch

While larger furniture stores often have friendly and effective customer service departments, they lack the personal touch we can bring to customer relationships. Family values, friendly service, and a high number of satisfied customer reviews earned us the “Best Of Customer Service” honor on Houzz in 2015.

We meet with customers individually at our design center to help them choose the best furniture and make sure they’re getting exactly what they want (contact us for an appointment). Once you’ve placed an order we’ll continue to update you with product photos during the building process. After your order is delivered, we offer a 60-day warranty against defects and are available to answer any questions you might have about how to care for your furniture.
