Creating Comfort with Ergonomic Furniture

Friday, August 21st, 2015

Ergonomic furnitureIf you ask anyone who tends to spend much of their time sitting at a desk, things can become a bit uncomfortable. As the days and weeks progress, your body can begin to feel the strain of sitting for long periods of time. Your back can begin to ache while your neck and shoulders can begin to hold tension from the constant typing or writing.  It’s this type of discomfort that can begin to lead to serious health problems later on in life, which is why many offices are beginning to make the switch to ergonomic furniture.

Are you in the midst of redesigning a classroom to increase comfort within your learning environment?

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to help you design a comfortable and healthy learning environment for your students just in time for the back to school craze.

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture, we understand the challenges school administrators face to provide comfortable learning environments that truly promote a positive learning experience.

It’s important to have quality school chairs because students spend the majority of their school day in chairs and let’s face it, they can be pretty rough on the furniture.

In fact, students ages 13-18 years of age spend at least 78% of their time sitting at school.

Bottom line: Providing students quality school furniture should never be overlooked. It’s important to add in the estimated expense for school furniture into the overall budget to keep an adequate supply of school furniture/ school chairs on hand.

Students find it harder to learn and further their educational development when back pains and neck pains are preoccupying their minds.

Ergonomic school chairs are designed to effectively accommodate student postures rather than force students to adjust themselves to poorly designed chairs.

The ideally ergonomic school chairs will:

-Help students to better focus on educational material and class discussions for extended periods of school times. Ergonomic school chairs are especially valuable to students prone to fidgeting. By maximizing their comfort levels with ergonomic chairs, you can help fidgeting students increase their attention spans.

-Reduce body aches and pains that come from low end school chairs that lack adequate support.

The most in-demand ergonomic chairs for classrooms are plastic chairs because plastic chairs are durable and easier to clean than some other types of school chairs.

Wooden chairs are second in popularity because the chairs offer low maintenance cleaning and they are also very durable. If you want a classic classroom look, you can’t go wrong with wooden chairs.

What are the ergonomic chair styles available for schools?

  1. The traditional four leg chairs with caps. These chairs are perfect for classrooms with hardwood floors because the chairs prevent scraping of hardwood floors.

  2. Sled base chairs. They are called sled base chairs because they offer easy gliding of chairs across hard floors and carpets.

  3. School chairs with casters. These chairs resemble office chairs to help students maneuver chair position with a simple turn. It’s a great solution for helping students switch positions.

Here at Edwards & Hill Office Furniture we have available ergonomic chairs in variety of colors to complement your classroom environments – black, red, blue, yellow, green, brown…you name it, we got it.

We have wooden chairs to give you that classic classroom appearance that helps students feel right at home. When students, see that a classroom has a high quality look and feel, they are likely to feel that the education offered is high quality.  When a school and a classroom is well furnished and clean, it increases the level of respect that the students have for their school and ultimately, themselves.  There is nothing like school spirit to help students achieve.

Conference Room Design Projects: What do you need?

Monday, June 24th, 2013

Is your conference room in need of an extreme makeover?

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here to style up your conference room from ceiling to floor.

Conference room designs: What do you need to pay attention to?

Setting up a comfortable and highly functional conference room may sound easy, but it can be a challenging interior design project if you have no idea where to start.

The key to completing a great conference room design project is to pay attention to detail.

The most commonly used furniture pieces for conference rooms are:

  • Conference tables

  • Ergonomic Chairs

  • But don’t forget the Audio Visual components

  • Wire Management

For the conference room table, you need to pay attention to the height of the table compared to the height of chairs placed around the table. Clients and employees should never feel like they are squeezing their legs underneath the table. They should have plenty of room to move their legs up and down, as well as extend their legs forward or to the side without bumping into the legs of others.

Next, it is important for the conference room to be painted a neutral color to create a fresh and welcoming atmosphere. This is especially important for videoconference rooms because dark or bright walls force those trying to view presentations to strain their eyes.

Nonetheless, you should utilize the space and furniture of your conference room to make a positive statement about your company’s business practices and operations. For the best decorative results, your conference room interior design should give off a unified look.

You can pull this off with the following interior design tactics:

  • Furnish the conference room with leather ergonomic chairs. Leather furniture can let clients know that your company is serious about business when it comes to communicating sophistication and quality products/ services.

  • Purchase modern furniture. This will let your business partners and clients know that you’re a highly innovative company that’s up on the latest in your industry while still maintaining an upbeat, energetic work atmosphere.

  • Add in your company’s personality. It is a great idea to have your company photos and awards on display for business partners and clients to give off good vibes about your company and its positive impact on the community.

  • Plan the conference room design/ theme around your selected conference room table. This is a great design strategy because the conference table is always the centerpiece and all other furniture items can be compared to how well they flow naturally with the table.

Conference room tables commonly come in the form of a rectangular shape or a similar shape like boat shaped. The conference table you select for your business will all depend on how intimate you want the space to be for business partners and clients.

If you have a large room, we recommend purchasing a rectangular conference table rather than a round table because small conference tables look awkward in large conference rooms. Edwards & Hill Office Furniture can assist you in selecting a conference table that’s proportionate to your conference room design.

Consider a round conference table when you have a small to regular sized conference room. The round tables are perfect for businesses that prefer collaborative work because the shape of the table promotes closeness.

We have an excellent selection of modular conference tables and other essential conference room accessories – white boards, projection screens, and serving credenzas.

Edwards & Hill Office Furniture guarantees economic, durable conference room furniture and installation services for all types of industries. Place your order today.

Cafeteria Furniture: How To Improve Cafeteria Traffic Flow And Socializing

Monday, April 29th, 2013

Arranging students in a cafeteria can be a pleasant social environment or a full out nightmare. With the right traffic flow and cafeteria furniture, you can promote good behavior in students and provide them a fun, comfortable lunchroom experience.

When students and visitors to the school step in the cafeteria, you want the lunchroom to look impressive and make socializing easier.

Good traffic flow and quality cafeteria furnishing should be top priority in cafeteria design.

To improve traffic flow, make sure that lunch lines are carefully planned out from classroom to cafeteria. This will help students spend less time in the cafeteria line and they can be seated quicker.

It is best to seat students in order of food giving. Make sure cafeteria tables provide plenty of walkway space between each other to make seating and lunch dismissal as easy as possible.

As for making lunch supervision easy, there should be no cafeteria furniture items obstructing cafeteria vision. This will help with cafeteria noise control because supervisors can teach, enforce, and reinforce all lunchroom rules based on observing student behaviors.

Another cafeteria design must is having vibrant colored furniture and interior design features.

Colorful cafeteria furniture and overall cafeteria design will help students remain energized for afternoon lessons.

Sterile cafeterias only make students feel sluggish after lunchtime.

Furnishing the cafeteria with colorful ergonomic chairs and other ergonomic furniture items will keep students engaged for learning and comfortable during eating.

You should also consider the following cafeteria furnishings and decorations:

 

  • Wall murals. They are lovely artistic additions to cafeteria settings.

  • Round cafeteria tables are perfect for socializing.

  • Rectangular cafeteria tables make for great serving tables.
