The start of a new year presents us all with the perfect opportunity to take a fresh look at things – and to plan for the future. For a business, taking a fresh approach may help to give them a better perspective on how their operation works – allowing them to achieve more through a simple re-organisation.

A workplace refresh does not have to involve a complete reimagining of the office’s interiors or the rearrangement of the furniture set-up though; a fresh new look and feel can be applied simply and easily – with office chair reupholstery.

The Importance of Office Chair Reupholstery

As the very people who keep the business moving in the right direction, ensuring that employees are well-catered for, in regards to how well they are able to perform their roles, should be of the utmost importance.

Sat down for upwards of 7 hours every day, 5 days a week, it can be said that office chair reupholstery may be the difference between great work being produced in a happy atmosphere, and a difficult environment that provides a constant struggle. So the functionality and comfort levels that each chair or seating item has, simply cannot be overlooked.

There may come a time when the business will have to improve its office interiors – whether through re-organisational necessity or simply to create better company branding. Being a large part of the look of the office, the condition, colour and styles of the materials used in chairs and seating may therefore have to be changed – so out they go. But why throw away perfectly good items?

Re-upholstering provides the ideal halfway house between the need for better furniture – and the cost to produce them. Instead of effectively wasting money by throwing well-used items away and paying more to replace them, existing furniture can be re-conditioned, repaired or reimagined, providing them with a new lease of life.

So if you’re responsible for the set-up of your office environment, why not consider a new look for the new year, with office chair reupholstery?

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!

The run-up to Christmas is naturally a busy time for schools – the end of another term, of course, but there’s also the added seasonal activities to contend with; with parties, shows and nativity plays being a fixture of the season, most schools will be playing host to a large number of visitors over the coming weeks.

An upturn in visitors acts as a reminder that the school must give off a great impression – as well as comfort. So whilst pupils are away for Christmas, why not consider school chair repair to provide your educational facility with comfortable and functional seating for the future?

The Importance of School Chair Repair

Away from the obvious need to provide a positive impression on visitors, the comfort and functionalities of the everyday school chair are important to allow pupils (and staff) to feel engaged with their environments and to be able to get on with their work without feeling distracted.

For pupils, a school is a place of learning; an arena in which they can develop and grow their abilities. Distractions are easy enough to come by in school – but they do not need to be accentuated by poor quality furniture that offers an uncomfortable experience. Not only could better chairs help a pupil feel comfortable and content with their surroundings, but it will allow them to concentrate on their work; engaging them, providing them with inspiration and interest.

For staff, the school is a workplace – and like any workplace, great facilities will more often than not, produce great work. The engagement aspect of a classroom’s comfort is vital for staff – an engaged class of pupils will help them to get across their teachings better. Everyone approaches their work with the intentions of making a great impact – and with teaching, especially, having such an influence on the development of people, seeing their positive contribution to their pupils’ lives will help staff to feel empowered and happy with their work.

But whether it’s through sheer age or regular wear-and-tear, school seating frequently needs to be taken out and replaced – often at cost. This is what makes school chair repair so advantageous – such a service can repair, reupholster or even reimagine the design of a particular chair, providing it with a new lease of life.  The savings it can make may be huge – savings that would be far better repurposed back into school funds to provide other, crucial services that may help pupils on a better path to achieving academic excellence.

So, if you run your own educational facility, why not consider gifting it the benefits of better quality seating this Christmas?

I am sitting proudly on my newly covered sofa. It looks very smart.

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.

"............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.......
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.
