5 Tips For Great Workplace Design – And How A Office Chair Repair Service Can Help

In order to help their employees to feel equipped and inspired in their work, as well as to impress any visitors they may receive, a forward-thinking business will invest in new office interiors. Dependent upon the existing set-up though, it could be the case that little, or only a few superficial changes may be all that’s needed – an office chair repair service, for example, can help to refresh existing seating, providing that comfortable feel and a stunning look that will inspire employees and impress visitors alike.

Here, we’re going to cover 5 key areas of the design of a workplace, summing up how comfort should be at the heart of its operations.

The Key Areas Of The Workplace – And The Role Of An Office Chair Repair Service

If you think about how long an employee spends sat down in an office – an average of 7 hours a day, 5 days a week, 48 weeks a year – then the comfort of the seating must be seen as vital to how they’re able to work. Poor, unsuitable or broken down seating will not only prove discouraging but can also cause physical injury too.

Don’t go throwing away all of the offending items though – with an office chair repair service, a business can potentially rescue these ‘broken down’ seats and give them a new lease of life; saving themselves much in the way of costs in the process.

Here are some of the key areas of the office in which the quality of the seating is vital:

  1. The Reception Area. As the first-point-of-contact that any visitor will have with a business, the need to make the reception area comfortable and attractive should be of the utmost importance. That first impression immediately forms a person’s opinion on something and often, that impression is difficult to forget – this is why so many firms place their best furniture items in their reception.

  2. Meeting Rooms. Whether you’re hosting clients or if the business needs an efficient space for employees to discuss projects in, a meeting room provides the ideal facility. With much time spent in meetings rooms and often involving intense conversation, the need for executive-type chairs that provide great comfort is an obvious must.
  3. Casual Work Spaces. With an upturn in flexible working, the set-up of offices are changing rapidly. Whilst previously, workers would be based in the same room, all day and all week (very monotonous) – new tech allows them to break up this existence and to choose the environment in which they work. Oftentimes, we may feel like we need the quiet (with comfortable executive seating), other times, we may need the chatter of a collaborative room (with benches that gets everyone around the same table) to provide us with inspiration. A flexible office design with appropriate seating can help to create such environments – and helping employees to choose how they work is more likely to see an upturn in productivity.
  4. Break Rooms. One of the growing areas of office design has been the introduction of specialist rooms that allow their employees to take their breaks in. With the ‘working arena’ often being stressful, it’s been noted that providing an area away from this, one that offers a safe and comfortable experience will help employees to recharge and to recollect their thoughts. An office chair repair service can work with the business to understand what is needed and how it can be achieved.
  5. Kitchen Areas. Working in a similar way to a break room, in addition, a kitchen area can allow people to prepare meals, eat, rest up and of course, to get around the same tables as their fellows to have conversations, increasing their collaboration and paving the way for a great repartee – ideal for when teamwork is required back in the work arena!

We have been very impressed with your service. Both the quality of the workmanship and your coutesy has made it a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for a beautifully refurbished chair Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 ......... I am writing to confirm just how pleased we have been with the work you have done for us recently. The recovered chairs, apart from now being exactly the colour we wanted, look as good as new and have made the surgery look the way we want it to look. Many, many thanks - we will be recommending you whenever the opportunity arises.

"............before "finding" Waldron, I had received some very negative responses from several other upholstery firms.......... ..........from the time Waldron was recommended to me I received helpful, sympathetic and effective advice, from my initial enquiry, with no "pushy" sales pressure at any time.......... Given the complex work involved, and choice of strong material, and the high quality of personal service I thought your charges were extremely reasonable. Certainly infinitely cheaper than having to completely replace an essential chair. I was delighted with the work done. The upholstery looks to have been done to a very high standard, on what as I have mentioned was quite a challenging chair to work on. The fabric looks superb, and in fact the chair looks better than it did before I am so pleased that I have found Waldrons and will not hesitate to recommend your Company to anyone i have contact with who might be seeking a similar service."

We saved over £500,000 refurbishing our office chairs with Waldron’s rather than purchasing new.......
The chairs are fantastic Thanks so much. The 2 chairs you reupholstered look fantastic. I thought they were two new ones they look so good. In fact our receptionist liked them so much she’s grabbed one immediately and swapped it.

Just a quick line to ask you to pass on our compliments to those involved in the recent recovering of chairs, and re-webbing, new cushions, etc. The service throughout was excellent – including the collection and delivery – and there have been lots of positive, admiring comments from staff, pupils and parents. If you have potential customers requesting testimonials, please don’t hesitate to ask them to contact me. With many thanks,
