When you are starting a business, money can be tight. It is important to make sure that you have the office furniture you need to be able to do your job as efficiently as possible. If you are on a budget, but need great furniture, you should consider buying used furniture and making them into stylish, unique pieces that are both useful and eye-catching. Use the following guide to learn how to update a few classic pieces of furniture quickly and easily.
You need a desk in your office. Metal desks are often very inexpensive, have tons of storage space, and are very easy to update. All you need to do to update the look of a metal desk is spray paint it. Take the desk outdoors and remove the drawers from the desk. Use spray paint to paint the top, sides, and back of the desk a dark, neutral color. This will create a classic look. Use a bright and bold color of spray painting to paint the front of the drawers. This will give the desk a pop of color and make it completely unique. Allow the paint to dry overnight and then return the desk to your new office.
A bookshelf is a very useful piece of furniture to have in an office because it provides you with storage space and allows you to display items in your office with pride. Use shelf liner paper to update the look of your bookcase. All you need to do is measure the back of each section of the bookcase. Cut the shelf liner to the exact dimensions you need and then remove the paper from the back of the shelf liner. Stick the shelf liner against the back section of each shelf so that when you look at the bookcase, you see a decorative background behind whatever is displayed on each shelf.
You need to have at least one chair in your office for clients to sit in during a business meeting. You want to be sure that the chair is comfortable and stylish. You can have the chair reupholstered with any material you choose for a minimal investment. If the rest of your office is decorated with solid colors, you may want to be adventurous and choose a printed fabric for your chair upholstering. This will give it a unique look and add character to your office.
Once your office is properly furnished, you will be able to conduct business with confidence. All of these furniture makeovers take a very short amount of time and are very affordable. To check out new furniture options, visit a retailer like A Pomerantz and Company.Share
