You finally made the move…into a bare office. The walls are empty, seating and desks are non-existent. As a small business, you want to be mindful of costs, however your employees don’t want to put their computers on TV trays. Time to buy some furniture, but what’s a good benchmark, and what should you expect to spend?
According to recent research, the average employee cost for furniture is right around $1,500 factoring in bulk discounts. Did you just fall over? It’s OK, there are other alternatives too. A visit to your local Swedish furniture store will provide you the option to buy desks for around $400 not including chairs. The key to remember is that a better investment now, will result in lower costs later. Consider buying higher end furniture from consignment stores as another option.
