And why they make a great option for your new business
Building a company may be the most rewarding thing someone ever does. Coming up with a new product or service that people want and are willing to pay for can be exhilarating. But starting a business from scratch does come with its fair share of challenges.
If your company is just getting started, there are certain things you need to address right away. The first is your team. Making sure you have the right people around you can mean the difference between success and failure. This leads to the next issue: where will these folks be setting up shop?
Assuming you won’t be working out of your garage, you’ll need to find adequate office space to fit your needs. Once you’ve got that covered, it’s time to focus on furniture. Going with flexible solutions like systems furniture or modular furniture may be your best option, as they offer several unique benefits to a new business.
Chances are, you’re watching every penny when it comes to your new company’s expenditures. The beauty of modular furniture is that it can grow with your business. Because the pieces can easily be moved and adjusted, you’ll be able to use them for many years in a variety of set ups. This will save you from having to keep buying new items, and the fit and finish of today’s modular pieces are excellent. There’s no tradeoff in quality.
If you want to get your business going fast and need your staff to hit the ground running, modular furniture can be installed very quickly. Unlike with traditional pieces, you could have your office up and ready to go in a day or two. It’s also quick and easy to adapt these solutions to changes in your business, new personnel, or even a different office layout.
A short-term solution
Perhaps you were anxious to get things started, so you grabbed the first office space you looked at with the intention of moving somewhere else in the near future. This is another reason to go modular. Just as this furniture is easily assembled, it can be taken apart and relocated with little trouble. This will be especially helpful when your company blows up big and you need to find larger office space.
It pays to experiment with your office layout to figure out what works best for your employees, and traditional furniture can be cumbersome. A large wooden desk, for example, can make a fine work area, but having it fit into an open layout or a more collaborative space could prove to be difficult. Adaptable furniture gives you a range of different looks and set ups, and the ability to change them at will. Benching is an option that allows your employees to work collaboratively, and flexible, shared workspaces can accommodate multiple individuals who need to use specific equipment within or across different work shifts.
A new business needs to be as efficient as possible – you have to get as much value as you can from every investment. Office space can be expensive, and while for the time being you may not have the size you want, you can get the most out of it with adaptive furniture. Because it can be moved and reconfigured without difficulty, you’ll be able to maximize every inch of your office.

We’ll supply you with the flexible furniture that’s right for you, and help you design a layout that allows you and your employees to get the most out of it.
