Forward thinking companies have really latched on to the idea of creating breakout areas in the office. Breakout areas aren’t just a buzzword in the industry or the company paying lip service to health and safety (although that is an excellent reason for having them!). Far from it; organisations are increasingly seeing the benefit of giving their teams a bit of space to chill out and contemplate and having these spaces has proven to create better cross-functional relationships and collaboration.
Everybody has a budget that they try and work to and when you’re planning a new office fit-out, refurbishment or looking to re-locate, that budget comes into sharp focus.
When you’re looking at office furniture and office design it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the range of choice that is available and how it might impact on budget. Different styles and materials, various tables, chairs, storage solutions, shelving, partitioning etc. Where and how is it all going to fit together and how will I get the best use out of the space available are all questions that will be buzzing around your head and how are you going to afford it all will be at the front of your mind.
