A recycled furniture year in review 2021 | Recycled Business Furniture

This year has been a great one for giving advice and guidance as businesses look into various ways to support their staff and the environment. Recycled furniture is a flexible option to not only create a working space at home for those of us that could go into the office due to Covid, but it also supports the environment by reducing carbon emissions and reusing where possible.

This month, Recycled Business Furniture looks back over the year at some of the unique tips and tricks we gave our customers.

Getting ready for home working with your recycled furniture

This year saw a rise in working from home, with many turning their spare home areas into an office space with affordable prices at Recycled Business Furniture. As many of us didn't know how long we would be working from home, it made sense that we purchased recycled furniture rather than buying brand new off the shelf pieces only for them to gather dust in the corner eventually.

Used furniture is certainly something that most of us should consider using or looking into when creating a working space in our homes. It is no mystery that certain furniture brands can make a noticeable dent in our bank accounts, both for the house and the office. For many of us, this cannot be warranted, both within and outside of a pandemic.

Many people were impacted financially by the pandemic and needed to look for cost-friendly ways to find secondhand office furniture in excellent condition, such as office desks and chairs, to create a home office. By browsing selections of used office furniture from businesses such as Recycled Business Furniture, you are sure to find a wide range of quality recycled furniture to buy that will suit the space that you are looking to fill.

Recycling your office furniture to declutter and refresh your look

Not only are businesses looking to add recycled furniture to their offices this year, but they are also looking to have a clear out. Rather than throw good quality office furniture away, savvy businesses are turning to the recycling services offered by Recycled Business Furniture.

Recycling your older office furniture can give you a whole host of benefits that you had never even considered before - check out our top benefits below:

  • Reduce your carbon footprint by reducing energy consumption during transport and storage
  • Save money on buying new products or hiring additional staff
  • Help protect the environment by preventing unnecessary production of virgin resources
  • Improve employee morale by providing them with updated furniture that makes them feel valued and gives them more space
  • Increase productivity by allowing employees to use recycled material instead of purchasing new equipment

The benefits of recycling your old furniture are endless, and when you choose to part with these ghosts, it can only ever bring a new lease of life to your office. When you recycle with RBF, you can be sure that your old furniture will be disposed of correctly using our recycling facilities. If your furniture can be updated and renewed, we will take care of this, and it will then be moved to our warehouse, where it will support someone else looking to give their own office a new lease of life. Whether your furniture is being sold on or sent to the recycling centre, we will always ensure efficient and environmentally friendly processes.

Recycled furniture to boost your teams' morale

With many of us paying more attention to the impacts we and our businesses are having on the environment, many business owners chose recycled furniture to reduce their carbon footprint this year.

The reception area is the first thing your clientele and suppliers will see when they walk into your building. Kitting this out with the most stylish furniture products you can find will be sure to give you a memorable entrance. However, finding your ideal reception furniture may be a costly exercise and leave you feeling like you have to spend a lot of money to create the perfect space.

Believe it or not, recycled furniture is a good choice for business owners who want to make environmentally-friendly choices and eliminate a few of the things on their gigantic checklist. It is pretty easy to do so when looking for secondhand furniture since more and more companies are moving towards making recycling the new thing! Recycled Business furniture has a complete range of beautiful pieces that are perfect for your office.

Secondhand tables to give your office a fresh look

Secondhand tables

There always seems to be something we need to fix in our offices. The lights keep tripping, the chair is starting to rip, and your table isn't quite suitable for your needs anymore. Unfortunately, these repairs and replacements cost us money and with the Christmas period fast approaching; we don't always have the funds to spare in doing up our office space.

This month, RBF looks at how you can save money and still have a great new look for your office with our secondhand tables as good as new. Check out the benefits of choosing secondhand tables over new ones below and get in touch if you need the help of RBF to upgrade your office.

Choosing the best secondhand tables for your style

Your office desk is the pinnacle of the work you do. Many of us sit for up to 9 hours a day at our desks, and for this reason, it's imperative that you choose a comfortable desk that works for you, your space and helps to get those creative juices flowing. Amazingly, around 46.6% of us worked from home at some point during the pandemic, and with 32% of businesses stating they are not sure about the future of homeworking - this option does seem set to increase as we move forwards.

Yet, most of us do not have the correct setup at home, with only 28% of working adults having access to a home office. Many of us have worked from our dressing tables, kitchen worktops, or even the sofa leading to pressure on our spines, legs and necks, and long waits to speak to the doctor. For this reason, having an office desk and office chair that supports your body and your working posture is crucial to high work output and comfort.

Office desks don't have to be ugly or take up a lot of space (a necessity if you are home working). This is where Recycled Business Furniture can help! You can find a secondhand table that is perfect for your needs and becomes an excellent addition to your home rather than an eyesore you try to hideaway.

Don't forget about comfort and practicality!

Your new table should offer you complete practicality so you can work comfortably and effectively whilst sitting at it. Don't just choose a secondhand table because it looks good and fits perfectly in your private office. Ensure you will have enough space to fit your desktop or laptop, space to design if you are in the creative industry and office storage space in the form of a pedestal that could save you space elsewhere.

When choosing a secondhand table, you don't just have to think about the space you need to work from or the style you want. Consider your current office chair as well. If you are not looking to replace your chair, you will need to take into consideration its height and measurements before finding the right secondhand table. Ensure your chair will fit comfortably under the desk and meet all your needs once you have found the suitable desk for you.

At RBF, we stock a wide variety of secondhand tables in our showroom, ready and waiting for you to come and choose the perfect one for your office space. Whether you are looking for adjustable desks, executive desks or general office ideas, RBF have the ideal solution for you and your office.

The benefits of choosing secondhand tables over brand new ones

There are many incredible benefits when you decide to select a secondhand table for your office space:

Environmentally friendly - do your part for the environment by choosing to purchase a secondhand table that would otherwise go to a landfill site.

Cost-Effective - it can be costly to buy the desk you want, so save money and time by finding your perfect secondhand table with Recycled Business Furniture.

More expensive models - if you are looking for the perfect expensive desk, you may well find this in the showroom with RBF. Get an excellent looking desk for your office space that looks incredibly expensive but doesn't break the bank.

Mix and match to find the perfect size - found the perfect desk but don't like the legs? Have the ability to mix and match when you choose to shop with RBF. We can create the ideal secondhand table for you.

The damage your old office furniture could be doing to your business

Unfortunately, if you are still working with outdated and damaged equipment - particularly in an office where you frequently invite potential clients to meet you - this could be doing damage to your company in a variety of ways.

Staff morale and retention can be seriously affected by older and broken down furniture and equipment. If they are expected to continue working with furniture that is broken or run down and potentially hazardous to them, it may leave them feeling undervalued and embarrassed of their workplace.

Visitors and potential clients - if they are visiting your offices - could leave thinking that you don't take care of the furniture in your offices, so why would you take care of them? Office furniture is a very visual representation of your business so ensure you always have your best foot forward when trying to impress the visitors and clients who come through your door.

That's why we suggest getting rid of your outdated equipment and looking into purchasing some new furniture to make your office shine again.

Out with the old and in with the new!

Secondhand Conference tables - Let RBF help you meet in style

Secondhand Conference tables

Conference tables are essential in any boardroom or meeting place, and finding the perfect one can sometimes be challenging. But you don't have to always buy new to get something that you'll love. There are plenty of secondhand tables out there, and here we will discuss why you should consider a secondhand one and how to choose the perfect one from Recycled Business Furniture for your business.

Why do people even use conference tables?

A conference table is a vital component of any conference room. It is the point of convergence, where all stakeholders can come together to discuss business, share ideas and more importantly, make decisions. While a conference table is an excellent asset to a company, buying a new conference table can be a costly affair. As a result, many businesses turn to the alternative option of purchasing a secondhand conference table.

Conference tables are valuable tools in the facilitation of meetings, but how did this piece of furniture get to the point of being such a significant part of the business world? And how did it become one of the essential pieces of office furniture in the world? Conference tables are used in every boardroom in the world, in every office to assist businesses in their decision-making processes. It has been said that if two people are in a room, there should be a conference table in the room to help them make decisions.

This furniture item is available in a range of styles to suit any business. For example, if you are in the process of redesigning your boardroom, or if you require a replacement conference table to make your business stand out, consider the option of purchasing a used conference table to create a more effective and efficient work environment.

Designs and styles of conferences tables

When choosing the best style of table that will suit your office or boardroom, it is crucial to consider your floor space, your height requirements and what you will be using the table for. Here at Recycled Business Furniture, we have many different table styles available to choose from, including round, square and rectangle, so there is sure to be something to suit your needs. Our range includes modern, traditional, and executive tables to help you find your ideal boardroom table. We also carry various finishes, so if you are looking for a modern, sleek table to match your decor, we have an excellent selection for you to choose from.

The benefits of secondhand conference tables

There are plenty of benefits to purchasing secondhand conference tables, but the most common one is the cost. Every business is looking to save money, but sometimes buying secondhand can be a costly mistake. It’s important to know the differences between purchasing secondhand and buying new, as well as what to look out for when purchasing used furniture.

Buying secondhand conference tables can save you a lot of money on the overall price of the furniture. A cheaper price tag isn’t the only benefit to buying used; there are some drawbacks. One of the main drawbacks of purchasing used is that you don’t know what condition the furniture is in. Some secondhand furniture is in great shape, but some furniture is not.

You need to know what you’re getting, which can be hard to do when buying online. It’s always best to inspect the furniture yourself, but sometimes that isn’t possible. There are also some other hidden costs of buying secondhand conference tables, such as delivery charges. You need to know what you’re getting, but you also need to know what you’re getting yourself into.

Sayl Chairs Belonging to a Sayl family of side tables and stools, the Sayl range was created to offer a minimalistic yet stylish option for an office chair. Still taking on the ergonomic values and principles Herman Miller is known for whilst having fun with the design and shape of the chair to create a unique focal point in the office.

Mirra 2 Chairs Mirra 2 is the design choice that responds to you and your movements effortlessly, so you don't even have to think about it. Available in 2 main back choices - TriFlex or Butterfly - depending on the movement and comfort you are looking for. As always with any Herman Miller Chair, design and style are still high on the list and these chairs are no exception.

Top great uses for secondhand pedestals in your space

Covid19
Pedestals. We at RBF think they are a brilliant piece of furniture. With so many uses, this versatile storage facility can transform any area into a space-saving genius. So many people believe that a pedestal is just for office space, but we are here to tell you, you can do so much more with this furniture. Our blog gives you ten uses for pedestals that could inspire you, whether it's for your shed or your office.

Extra filing space for the documents you need to protect

The bottom drawer of a desk pedestal is perfect for storing your confidential documents. With built-in rails for suspension files and a quality locking system, a pedestal is brilliant for storage files, particularly those that need to be protected.

A Desk Caddy that doesn't take up floor space

Where it all began, a pedestal is the ultimate answer for your desk caddy. A great storage space, particularly for those with limited floor space, your pedestal has all the basic functionalities to provide a secure storage space leaving you room for other necessities.

Mobile seating for visitors and employees

Not many people are aware that many pedestals come with a cushioned top, making it a great seating area. What makes using a pedestal as a seat even better is that because your pedestal is on wheels, it can be moved to suit your arrangements at any time.

Tool storage for the Home 'DIYer'

Many pedestals are used for office and desk storage, but they make great storage units for tools due to their sturdiness and versatility. Whether you are a mechanic or a handyman, you need somewhere to store your devices in your workshop or onsite and what could be better than a mobile, lockable system that doesn't take up too much space but still has enough room to store your much-needed equipment.

Personal Item protection whilst you are at work

Desk pedestals are great for storing your items, whether you are at work or home. Lock away your valuable belongings and be comfortable with knowing they will be there when you get back. Don't forget to lock away those biscuits as well, as in an office they tend to disappear quickly!

Bedside tables with a unique difference

If you have an eye for unique furniture that is practical and sure to be a conversation starter? In that case, why not consider a pedestal as a bedside table option? With plenty of storage space with drawer options for all your needs and a variety of colours that are sure to match your room, utilising a pedestal as a bedside table could be a great choice.

Shed drawers for seasonal items that tend to disappear

If you're constantly losing the extensions to garden hoses, the cap for your paddling pool or the ties to your parasol, you could require a pedestal for your shed. Store all the small seasonal items that always get lost in one place, and you never need to worry when summer comes around again.

Van storage for fiddly screws and materials

With limited space in your van, a pedestal could be a great option to store both your little 'bits and pieces' such as screws and cable ties in the top drawers, leaving space for your more significant tools in the bottom drawer. In addition, the lockable cabinet will provide you with peace of mind that your tools will be safe and won't open surprisingly when you are moving.

Desk support to extend your working space

Pedestals were initially used as desk support, removing the need for one of the legs. This provides excellent storage space and can often claw back some much-needed floor space in your office. But, of course, office desks always benefit from extra space, mainly if you are working from 2 screens and still need a landline phone and an intray!

A Guide to Buying Second Hand Office Furniture

Covid19

Have you ever wondered why it is so easy to find businesses selling second-hand office furniture? It is pretty simple. When a company changes their interior or outgoings, they need to get rid of the old furniture and equipment such as computer desks, filing cabinets, tables and chairs. They may not necessarily need everything, but they will want to dispose of it as quickly as possible. Second-hand furniture does not, however, mean old or broken; it can be an excellent way for you to furnish your office in a stylish, sustainable and cost-effective manner, leaving you with money to splurge on that brand new coffee machine everyone keeps talking about!

Why should you furnish your office space for less?

The first thing your clientele and suppliers will see when they walk into your building is the reception area. Kitting this out with the most stylish furniture products you can find will be sure to give you a memorable entrance. However, when finding your ideal reception furniture, this may be a costly exercise and leave you feeling like you have to spend a lot of money to create the perfect space.

Believe it or not, second-hand furniture is a good choice for business owners who want to make environmentally-friendly choices and eliminate a few of the things on their gigantic checklist. In fact, it is quite easy to do so when you are looking for second-hand office furniture since more and more companies are moving towards making recycling the new thing!

Quality office furniture is a cost-effective way to improve the look and feel of your business while making sure workers are comfortable in their jobs. Why not create an office space where you can put your best foot forward in comfort and style. A wide range of office chairs, desks, filing cabinets, bookcases, storage solutions and more are designed to be ergonomically correct to keep your workers free from aches and pains associated with bad posture and incorrectly sized furniture.

Second hand office desks that finish your space

Covid19

Someone once said that the office is a reflection of the person. We think you’ll agree with that. After all, we spend enormous amounts of time at our desks, which impacts our work output. You, therefore, need to be sure that at least one corner of your working environment is set up to support you in achieving your goals. That entails buying suitable types of office furniture. We’re talking about desks, chair, drawers, among others. Your choice of a desk (and whether it should be new or second-hand, for example) should depend mainly on where you will place it.

How-to tips for second-hand desks to utilise and perfect your office space

For many companies, buying second-hand furniture is a more effective solution than purchasing new. This is because constantly upgrading your furniture to match the latest trends can become extremely costly. The key to finding quality second-hand items is knowing where to look and what to look for.

When needing to furnish an office, an executive suite or even a single cubicle, finding quality second-hand furniture is a practical solution. The only issue that arises from purchasing used furniture is knowing whether it’s in good condition and worth its price tag. Many people are afraid of buying used items like this because they have either been taken care of poorly or have been damaged due to neglect. To avoid concerns like this, it’s crucial to find a reputable business that specialises in selling second-hand desks. You can then be sure that the company will provide only the highest quality furniture that and you may be able to view the furniture in their showroom, giving you a first-hand glimpse of your choices.

The main factors to consider when buying a second-hand office furniture piece are aesthetics and structural integrity. It is essential to check for any cracks or dents in the furniture. This is the best way of ensuring that any structural damages have not gone unnoticed during renovations. Furniture should also be scratch and stain-free as this can make or break a room’s aesthetics. If you plan on selling your second-hand office furniture, there is no point in purchasing new material for covers, so consider used covers instead.

Have a vision of what you want your surroundings to look like

Before buying used office furniture, you need to have a clear idea of how your work surroundings should look, smell and feel. Are you looking for an industrial vibe? Or a science lab-like ambience? The atmosphere surrounding you in your work should tell the world about your business and you as a person.

First, you should determine what works best for your personal needs. Then, while shopping among the different office chairs, desks, other office furniture, like display storage, choose only quality items of your choice. If you check out a few such places, you will find quality furniture and save a lot of money.

It’s always wise to make a list of furniture and office equipment needs. For instance, if you run a small business in the city, you might want to invest more in an office table for home use; it’s not that necessary. This way, you will look for items that match your requirements and pay less for things that you do not necessarily need.

Get the right desk for your workspace to maximise your potential

It's effortless to fall in love with a desk. There's nothing like a stylish, functional desk in your workspace to make it look even better. But when you're furnishing your office, you must consider more than just the aesthetics of your new tables and chairs.

Bringing stylish modern furniture into your office can improve the work environment of the entire team. It can also help boost productivity and creativity, as contemporary furniture encourages better work habits. But when it comes to choosing furniture for your workplace, there are more things to consider than looks. You need to take into account the health of your employees in addition to their comfort. This is why you should look into ergonomic furniture if you haven't done so already.

You'll no doubt have space in your mind where you dream about your piece of furniture. The beautiful, modern lines might be a perfect addition to your home office or even an ample open plan office space with plenty of natural light. It'll be perfect for tasks like meeting with clients, checking email, and working on documents.
