You've probably put a lot of thought into choosing commercial office furniture so your employees can work efficiently and comfortably, but you may not think much about guest seating other than wanting chairs that are attractive. A good choice for your waiting room could be loveseats. Here's why loveseats work well and tips for choosing office loveseats.
The Advantages Of Loveseats For Guest Seating
Loveseats are larger than single chairs, so they are more comfortable for big or overweight people to sit in. While comfort isn't vital for guest seating since guests don't stay in them for too long, you still want guests to fit in the seat, and you want the seat to be strong enough to support the weight of a heavy person.
Loveseats are ideal for a single large person to use, and they're also perfect for a parent with small children since everyone can sit on the same seat. A loveseat is also useful for people who need to work while they wait or who want to read since they'll have room to use their equipment and can place a briefcase or backpack beside them on the seat rather than on the floor.
Loveseats provide all of these benefits while being attractive and giving your waiting room a more modern look. Rather than have single seats lined against the wall or in rows, you can arrange smaller seating areas partitioned by loveseats so the waiting room has a friendlier seating arrangement with some single seats also for people who prefer them.
Tips For Buying Office Loveseats
Just like other office furniture, you want loveseats that are durable since they get a lot of use every day. Plus, they should be easy to clean. Kids and even some adults may have their feet in a loveseat, so material that resists stains and is easy to wipe down is an important feature.
Unlike other office furniture that's on wheels or is stackable, loveseats aren't as easy to move. If you'll place them on carpet or flooring that needs to be cleaned daily, consider loveseats that are lightweight and easy to push out of the way so the cleaning service is sure to clean around and under the furniture.
Since loveseats are larger than other office chairs, they double as décor for your waiting room. You can choose seats in a variety of colors, whether they're upholstered with fabric or vinyl. You might even want patterns or flowers on the fabric to brighten your office space. However, if you have a professional building and want furniture that reflects the status of your company, you may want vinyl or faux leather tufted button loveseats that have an executive look.
