Comfort & Functional Design

Simply put, ergonomics is the science of properly fitting workplace conditions to avoid injury, decrease fatigue, and improve productivity and satisfaction. Eight-plus hour workdays can put a lot of stress and strain on the body. Take advantage of some of these tips to increase posture and be aware of your body while you’re at work.

Make sure monitor is at eye level. Keep the top of the computer monitor at or slightly below eye level. Your eyes should look slightly downward when viewing the middle of the screen.

Get up and move around. Back pain might be the result of poor ergonomics and hours spent at the office. Even with the best chairs out there, it’s best to get up and move every half hour to reduce muscle fatigue.
Sit all the way back. When you’re sitting at your desk, fill the space between your back and the back of the chair.

Evenly distribute your weight. When sitting in an office chair ensure your feet are flat on the floor, knees are at a 90-degree angle, and weight distributed between both hips will help fight the strain of sitting all day in one place.

Work your armrests. They’ll help you relax your shoulders and keep the elbows close to the body.
Lean back. Sitting in a slightly reclined position will relax your back muscles and decrease the pressure on your lower back.

Choosing Furniture

Office furniture can be one of the toughest purchases you can make for your business. Working with BEDS will prepare you for choosing office furniture that is the best fit for your environment and budget. Here are some tips to consider when planning your furniture needs:

We provide functional options that fit your space and style. We know each space is unique along with your needs and do our best to fit your needs.

We assist in establishing your floor plan. It is important to have the dimensions of your space and initial thoughts on how you want to furnish it. We will work with you to provide the best options that fit your budget and needs.

We’ll consider the needs of your employees. How much shelf space or drawer room do they require? We work on the details of what they need to do their jobs effectively and how to keep your employees happy.

We help to strategize your color scheme. While functionality is extremely important, aesthetics play an important role as well. A comfortable and pleasing work environment makes for a much more productive work environment. We can help find the perfect balance for productivity and positivity with color.

We look at how frequently the items are going to be used. If you’re buying a desk that will be used at least eight hours a day, we will help you choose something of high quality and comfort. If the use will be primarily decorative, a less ergonomically friendly piece might work out just fine.

We will assist you staying within budget. Our staff is aware of delivery prices and miscellaneous costs. A better price on a product does not always mean it’s the best deal. Get the full details of delivery and installation costs before you complete your purchase.
