Things You Need For Your New Office

Setting up a new office can be a very stressful endeavour, with a variety of legal obligations that need to be taken into consideration such as health and safety for workers. In addition to style, the practical business and personal consequences of the set up of a new office also need to be carefully judged.

Basic furniture

There are three basic furniture types that will likely be required in a new office, though more may be necessary depending on meeting room and break area space requirements. 

Desks are a crucial basic type of furniture for any office, and having their own desk space helps to make employees feel comfortable and valued. There are simple rectangular desks, L shaped desks that provide more storage and space and adjustable desks that provide employees with the option to stand and may be a benefit to health and safety in the workplace. 

There are many options for chairs that offer a wide range of support and comfort from executive chairs to much simpler task chairs. Chairs can play a major role in stress and the overall health of employees, so even if you are on a tight budget chairs need to at minimum offer back and arm support and be adjustable. 

Furniture that offers storage is also important and can include the likes of filing cabinets and general stationery storage as well as personal desk storage. Desks can be bought that already have fitted storage or extra mini drawer space may be required. How much storage is required will depend on equipment size and stationery and filing requirements. 

USB extension cables

USB extension cables can be of great value and importance when setting up a new office, coming with a wide variety of benefits that can be essential to any business. 

These benefits include transferring data at a very fast rate, as much as 12mb of information every second with a very high-quality cable, in contrast to a rate of just 114kb of information every second available with a parallel cable. When transferring files that are particularly large, that difference in speed can mean a difference of several hours in real-time. 

USB extension cables also allow users to be able to charge their mobile devices wherever there is a USB port, a unique feature to these cables that is not remotely replicated by parallel cable.

USB extension cables can perform the transfer of data without the need to be connected to the internet and are incredibly versatile, with many different types available from manufacturers. USB extension cables can be flat, long, round or short and are also available in different colours. 

Internet access

Internet access is absolutely essential for any modern office and should be considered during the search for a new office and long before actually moving in. It is crucial to be aware of the kind of internet setup that is actually available, the speed of the connection if the area has fibre optic availability and the most affordable and fastest options out there. 

The taking of all necessary steps when setting up a new office means that the actual move will be much simpler to make a success.
