Stylish bench desks from stock

CH Workspace are pleased to announce that we have another exciting range of bench desks which are

available from stock for delivery within a few days

The 4Work range has been with us in for a few years now, in the form of a range called 4Most, but now the range has been extended to provide some interesting options.

To begin with the  4Work  range  is available with either aluminium or jet black finish legs, with either a beech, oak, or white top. The legs have been designed for form as well as function, which is refreshing to see on an office furniture range.  Normally the legs are a fairly basic affair, and just designed to keep the desks from collapsing.

This time, the designers have gone to great length to make the leg detail an intricate part of the overall design, and in our opinion it works well.

Using office screens to improve your workspace

Most offices start out as well planned professional environments, but over the years, additional office furniture and equipment is added as more staff are taken on  and the business requirements change from that which was originally envisaged.  As a result the office looks a little untidy and the general noise level starst to increase, again over what was originally anticipated.

But instead of just allowing this natural progression to take place you should consider getting an office furniture professional in to have a look at your environment to see if there are any changes which can be made.

Quite often relatively small changes can have a major effect on the office.
If you have a number of staff in a relatively small area, with plenty of hard surfaces, then background noise is going to become a big problem, and even bigger if your workspace is mainly open plan.  

There are many professional ( and some quite expensive) ways to deal with noisy offices, and these methods have been addressed in other articles, but here we are dealing with just generally improving the workspace with a few dividing office screens.

Decorative divider screens

There are many sophisticated office screens systems out there in the market and we are privileged to be able to offer some of the best available, to our customers, but what about the other end of the market, where all you want is just a basic divider to break up a large office or to define the reception area.

The most common offering is literally just a fabric covered board, which sits on a tubular steel foot, and is edged with a thin PVC strip, or linking dumbbell.

They do what they are supposed, and are quite cheap, but they are certainly lacking in terms of style and design.
