1. What’s my budget?
Which office furniture suppliers in Malta can I afford?
The most important thing is obviously your budget. This will dictate how much you can spend however be careful not to make common mistakes. A limited budget does not mean you need to choose a smaller shop. On the contrary, you need to choose a company that can offer a large variety so that you can choose from a variety of different prices. This will allow you to go cheap whilst also finding key pieces that make your decor look higher quality.
2. Longevity. Long Lasting Furniture is not always the best option.
How long are you keeping your premises for? Will you need to move soon? If so skimp on semi-permanent solutions like partitioning. You may opt for soundproof modules that are portable and can be moved to your new offices when you move. If you’re staying in your office indefinitely because you own the building make sure you keep the layout flexible so it allows you to grow. Discuss your future staffing projections with your BSL Lifestyles project manager.
3. Use: How will the office be used in 2 or 5 years’ time?
Think about the use of your premises. Do your employees spend most of their time at their desk? Do they eat on the premises? etc. Make sure that you choose washable materials for dining areas and places with heavy daily usage. Provide adjustable desks for people who spend most of their time at their desk to improve their long-term health and productivity.
Ask your staff for ideas. What would they like to have in their office? You will get some silly answers when you ask that question like a slide or swimming pool, but perhaps they are not so silly after all. Google has built a brand around that and we supply all the fun stuff because our clients like to have fun with their decor so we have pushed ourselves to supply all the fun stuff with plenty of options.
