CHANTILLY, VA—August 15, 2017— Summer is coming to an end, and back to school is on everyone’s mind. Between new backpacks, school clothes and the latest gadgets and gear for school, students are getting ready for a style upgrade.

 But the kids aren’t the only ones who will benefit from a fall upgrade. This is the perfect time of year for consumers to rethink their workspaces as well, whether it’s at home or in the office.

 “The workspace is changing, and newer technologies tend to guide the needs of the modern office,” said Lorri Kelley, President of BDI. “Fall is the time when many new computer and mobile technologies are released. So while students take advantage of these releases for back-to-school savings, it’s also a great time to look at what office workers need in order to create the most efficient and effective workspace possible.”

 With this in mind, BDI offers a few tips for what to consider when rethinking your office set-up this fall – and a chance to buy new furniture on sale as well:

Stand Up to the Task
Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase “sitting is the new smoking.” Sitting at a desk for 8 hours a day is not only uncomfortable, but can also open you up to a number of health issues like high blood pressure, increased blood sugar, and back and neck pain. Consider adding a programmable electronic standing lift desk that can easily be adjusted to let you stand up while completing your work. But don’t forget the ergonomic chair for when you do need to sit down for periods of deeper concentration

Clean Up the Clutter
Take a look at your desk. Chances are your phone, computer, monitors, speakers, and keyboard are all hooked up and cords are in the way. Get valuable space back by equipping your office with furniture that has wire management systems and channels, allowing you to keep those wires tucked away.

Shore Up On Storage

While business has become increasingly digital, hard copies are still necessary in many cases, and when it comes to these important files, you’ll need a place to store them. A filing cabinet that attaches to your desk can keep the things you need at an arm’s reach when you need them, and out of sight, out of mind when you don’t.  

Customize Your Setup
No two office spaces are exactly alike. Fortunately, there is plenty of furniture out there that allows you to customize your workspace no matter what size, style, or amount of storage you’re looking for. Modular collections allow you to pick and choose components, space for filing and storage, shelving or desktop spaces that are ideal for you. For the desktop surface, you may want to consider one with a smooth, non-glossy finish that will reduce glare from all of your bright, modern electronics.

Work in Style
You spend a lot of time selecting the right styles for your home so your office should be no different. Today, there are many office collections that let you blend your personal style in with a quality office system that is both functional and fashionable.
