Selecting the Right Visitor Chairs for YOUR Office
With an overwhelming number of options available in the market it can be difficult to decide what type of Visitors Chairs are best suited to your office. As all businesses are unique, deciding upon the most appropriate Visitor Chairs for your office can be especially difficult. Unlike Ergonomic Office Chairs and Standing Desks, there isn’t a standard set of criteria to look out for when searching for the ‘Best’ Visitor Chairs.
Below are the Top 5 factors to consider when determining the Best Visitor Chairs for YOUR office.
Your Visitors The most important factor to consider when choosing the most appropriate Visitor Chairs for your office is of course the people who will be using them! For a more formal office frequented by high-end business clients, a Visitor Chair that reflects this level of professionalism such as the Grand Chair, Boston Visitor Chair or Clover Tub Chair would be most appropriate. If your Visitor Chairs will be used primarily for consumers and you are aiming for a more laid-back feel it would be best to choose a more casual chair to put your guests at ease as they enter your environment. Examples of these include the Virgo Chair or the Tonik Chair.
Length and Frequency of Use It is important to consider the average length and frequency of use of your Visitors. For waiting rooms where your visitors/clients are often seated for extended periods of time, comfort is paramount – look for chairs with padded seats and backrests. Our most popular Visitor Chairs for waiting rooms are the Nova Chair and the V100. For offices which operate with a high volume of visitors, consider choosing a Visitor Chair designed with durability in mind - a higher weight capacity will be able to cater to all kinds of guests. Made with heavy duty construction in addition to boasting a BIFMA Compliance Certification and BOTH stackable and linkable features the ever versatile Wimbledon Chair is one of our top selling Visitor Chairs for high traffic offices.
Aesthetic To create a sleek, streamlined look you must consider choosing Visitor Chairs which will tie in with the interior styling and furniture with not only your entry/reception area but also throughout your entire office. This is especially important for businesses where visitors are frequently welcomed beyond the reception/waiting room. Maintaining a consistent aesthetic throughout is key to creating a professional feel to your office.
Durability As with all Office Furniture you want to ensure that your Visitor Chairs will last for many years to come. At Elite Office Furniture we only stock quality, built-to-last products backed by local Australian warranties from reputable industry-leading suppliers. For high-traffic use, we recommend chairs with easy-to-clean, wipeable surfaces such as Polypropylene, PU and Leather. For lesser used applications where your reception is more of a walk-through or in-and-out area, you might consider a feature chair with an upholstered finish such as the Lori Range or Cardinal Chair to add flair and make a lasting impact on your visitors as they are welcomed to your office.
Versatility Versatility in a Visitor Chair is especially important in smaller offices where storage space is limited, and chairs may need to be rearranged to accommodate extra people on short notice. If you are short on space, consider choosing a Visitor Chair that you could also use as a boardroom chair, or as a meeting/training/event chair. Stackable Visitor Chairs have both the benefit of being easy to store away when not in use and also easy to transport with a trolley. Additionally, some of our Visitor Chairs come with a Linkable feature which ensures even spacing between chairs and also aids in easy transport of multiple chairs at once. With both arm/no arm variants available and a range of add-on products including a tablet arm it is hard to look beyond the Wimbledon Chair on the versatility front. The Pod Chair comes in a choice of 3 colours and is also one of our top picks when it comes to versatility.
