The office, whether at work or at
home, is a very important room. It is an expression of

to keep in mind that will help make your office as attractive as it
is functional. Here are some tips for buying office furniture.

furniture has a sense of weight, scale and solidity to it.
2. Large cabinets, entertainment centers, sideboards, etc., should
have leveling devices in the base. Keeping big items level is
important because otherwise doors tend to stick.
3. There should be sash locks (metal latches) under the table
leaves and table top.
4. When you buy wood furniture, drawers should work smoothly
and should not bind when extended.
5. Drawer interiors should be smooth to the touch, sanded and
6. Glass shelves should be at least 3/8 inches thick and have
7. Better-end display cabinets should have halogen lighting,
line switches and rheostats.
8. Upper-end manufacturers use heavier, more substantial, more
9. Inspect hinges to determine if they are solidly secure and
can handle the load of the door.
10. Check to see if there are dust panels (horizontal
partitions) between drawers. They should be wood on the best items,
cardboard or nonexistent on less expensive items. Dust panels keep
dust and varmints from coming up under the piece and soiling the
contents of the drawers, but they are not critical to structural
