Home Office Furniture
In the last year, working from home has become the new normal for white collar workers. Workers across the United States have been setting up home offices not only to stay healthier but to ease the burden of transportation. If you are one of those people, you have likely considered home office furniture but might not be 100% sure what your options are or what would be best for you.
Well, let’s say, there are a lot of options for the home office and prices range from cheap to high end luxury and everywhere in between. So, economically what should you consider? In our humble opinion, if it is good enough for a business, it is good enough for your home. However, if a piece of furniture is made specifically for the home office, it might not be considered for use in a corporate setting.
So, what exactly is the different between home office furniture and commercial office furniture? The biggest difference is going to be how it is manufactured and the materials it is constructed with. We see it often, home office furniture is usually inexpensive and when it comes to moving, it starts falling apart. The higher end commercial furniture, which you should consider for your home is made out of stronger materials and won’t fall apart in the event that you need to move. In fact, you don’t even have to take the desk apart, usually a commercial grade desk will move easily with no risk of breaking.
In either case, there are a lot of great desks and office furniture sets out there for your home, the options are almost limitless it seems. Something to consider when buying home office furniture is checking the warranty to see how long the manufacturer will back it in terms of durability. If the desk is backed a one year warranty, you might expect to get a year out of it, and if you move it, it might break. If it is backed by a 5-25 year warranty, you are in good shape. These products tend to last a lot longer and can stand up to the everyday riggers you might put it through when working from home.

If form is a major factor over function, warranty might not be an issue for you. If you plan to set your desk in place and not move it again, you might be in good shape installing a basic home office desk. Always consider the cost of moving the desks, if you plan on moving to a new home and how it will hold up over the years. Looks is very important but investing your money into a quality piece of office furniture that can stand the test of time will keep you from having to buy more new furniture down the line.
