If you are furnishing a home office that you didn’t plan for, you’re probably on a pretty tight budget. There are a lot of ways that you can cut corners on the costs of your home office furniture, but one of the best ways to do so is to look at home furniture offerings instead of traditional office furniture. Home furniture is always cheaper, and when you shop online furniture stores you’ll find even more discounts.
You can get high quality dining chairs here but keep the following in mind as you browse.
Dining chairs to replace your executive office chair
A leather (or even faux leather) executive office chair can come with a hefty price tag, but you have other options. You can find dining chairs on rolling casters in large online furniture inventories to use instead. Bonus if the chair has arms that raise and lower as needed. These are more likely to be faux leather or vinyl, but if you get a nice black chair your clients will never know it’s not meant to be for the office.
Dining chairs in your reception area
If you have a foyer or living room in which you receive clients, vendors, and colleagues, adding a chair or to for a reception area is a good idea. The advantage of using dining chairs for reception and waiting guests is that they are slim enough to place in a hallway if no other reception area is available. You can get two or three simple dining side chairs of metal construction inexpensively.
Dining chairs for accent seating across from the desk
Even if you have a small sofa or loveseat for a more relaxed meeting, it shouldn’t be your only option. Sometimes a more professional approach is best for meeting your clients or colleagues on their own level. Instead of paying for expensive accent chairs, look at dining armchairs. They can give your space a professional aesthetic while also making your clients feel important as they sit at your desk. The more opulent and statelier the chair, the more pliable your negotiations.
Dining chairs as part of a set for meeting area
Even if you only have a small home office, you can get café style or bar style dining sets that take up little space and give you a lot more functionality. Putting two chairs with a small table gives you an area to meet with people when a writing surface is necessary. You can pull over your desk chair or the dining chairs in front of the desk over to the table if you need to converse with more than one other person.
Don’t forget to check for quality
As you’re browsing through dining chairs for your home office, keep in mind that you should be looking at quality. You don’t want to be redesigning your work from home space in a year’s time. Instead, you should spend a median amount to get both value and savings. The easiest way to check the quality of any furniture you buy is to look up reviews for the exact chair, the furniture collection it is from, the brand, and the online furniture store you want to buy from.
