It’s a decision every business owner has to make ‘When should I purchase new office furniture?’
The lease could have expired and you think it’s time to move closer to the CBD or upgrade to a modern office.

Or your furniture literally is on its last legs and it’s time to replace it fast.
Thankfully there are options available and we have given our opinion on the benefits of purchasing new office furniture.

If your business opened its doors in the late 80’s in Perth when beech / charcoal was the only colour option for your slab end style workstations and your staff are complaining their desks are falling apart it’s definitely time for an update.
Today modern office furniture is very simple to install and change the layout as your office changes or expands. With the advancement of technology each desk can have built in power & data called soft wiring which takes away the need of getting an electrician out every time a desk is moved.
It demonstrates to your customers that you plan on staying around.
