If your office file cabinets are filled to the brim, don’t wait until tax season overwhelms you. Now is the perfect time to figure out your storage options for the new year.
We’re helping many of our customers move files from 2020 into storage and supplying new or used cabinets for those who need more space.
Take a look at each option below.
Getting Brand-new Office File Cabinets
OfficeMakers sells physical filing cabinet systems from reliable brands like HON, Global, DMI, DSA, FireKing, Alera, and more.

Not sure which material is right for you? Our team is happy to assist you in choosing between wood, laminate, and metal.
If you’re on a budget, then a set of used filing cabinets might be just for you.
Going with Used File Cabinets
Sometimes, you simply don’t have it in the budget for a new set of filing cabinets. That’s okay. At OfficeMakers, we carry a great selection of used and refurbished office filing cabinets for your storage needs. This is also a great option if you simply need a filing cabinet they won’t be seen by anyone.
Just because a filing cabinet is used or refurbished, doesn’t mean it’s not high quality. We only select cabinets that are in good condition, to begin with for the refurbishing process. This way, you can get a quality filing cabinet without it going over budget.
Warehouse Store for Large Amounts of Files
Sometimes you need a bit more storage or it just fits better to have an off-site area to store things like old files or inventory. OfficeMakers has a warehouse solution to fit your needs. You can rent storage bays from us that are air-conditioned, monitored 24/7, and act as your all-in-one inventory solution.
Other great features of our storage service include

Office facility maintenance is an unavoidable task. If you let the issues pile up, your office could become unsafe, damage first impressions, and impact employee morale.
You may consider hiring separate crews to come in for each repair as needed, or you can work with OfficeMakers on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly basis.
Answer the questions below to create a punch list, and our team will handle all the necessary repairs.
1. Do any of your office chairs have issues?
All office furniture, even those from top brands like Hon and Iron Age, experience wear and tear. If you want your furniture to last a lifetime, then you need to take good care of it. Don’t ignore issues. If a chair doesn’t stay at the selected height, or if wheels don’t move smoothly, you need the services of an experienced and reliable office furniture service provider to assist you.
Since you made a significant investment in these products, a few small repairs might be all they need to last as long as you expect them to.
2. Are your file cabinets operating as intended?
Your office cabinets provide a safe place for your important documents and accessories unless the locks are jammed or don’t work.
Repairing or replacing those cabinet locks is best done by an office facility maintenance professional. OfficeMakers has been in business for many years, handling all kinds of office furniture repairs, and knows exactly what it takes to fix any furniture issue in your office.
3. Is anyone moving to a different office?
Moving offices takes time and energy. Rather than bringing in a random moving crew, look for someone with experience moving office funiture.
Whether it’s your chairs, cabinets, file drawers, or shelves, our reliable technicians will do a great job moving furniture and setting it up in a new location.
5. Do all the lights work?
The lighting in your office is critical for safety and productivity. Identify the lights that don’t turn on at all, or flicker when switched on.
Don’t risk electrocution or a fall off the ladder attempting to fix them yourself. You’ll need a qualified technician to repair the ballasts or change out bulbs in major fixtures out of reach.
6. Does signage or artwork need to be hung?
If you wish to change the look of your office, contact our office layout professionals. We will analyze your office’s appearance, consider the aesthetics, and determine where to hang new signage or artwork. We can also add a few accessories without making the room look cluttered.
Our team is on standby to attend to any office repairs as and when needed. Contact us today for professional office facility maintenance.
Office trends and design concepts have changed in the wake of COVID-19. The rules we once had surrounding how an office should look and function are gone. And no one knows this better than the team at OfficeMakers.
From the rise in co-working spaces to the need for social distancing, we’ll cover all the new office trends our team has uncovered.
Consider Co-working Spaces
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic, the work from home (WFH) movement had serious momentum. Now that we’ve accepted WFH as a reality for many employees, businesses are beginning to recognize the reduced overhead associated with a work-from-home employee base. We’re talking about lower utility bills, fewer real estate leases, and fewer workers comp claims.
Suddenly, boardrooms are buzzing about the value of co-working spaces: office space that can be leased and shared with other organizations.
In co-working situations, organizations should invest in high-quality office furniture. In 2021, designers should aim for aesthetically pleasing furniture that will hold up to repeated use and multiple shifts. Think of it this way, smaller meeting rooms that can handle six people might be used continuously throughout the day, rather than a single large meeting room used once a day.
Speaking of smaller meetings, they will be crucial for businesses moving forward in 2021.
Have Smaller, But More Conference Rooms
In 2021, we expect meetings of ten or more people to be very few. It’s time to store or donate massive conference tables and divide that ample space into several smaller areas.
Office designers will be looking for smaller, more portable communal tables that are easy to disinfect between users.
Portability is key because unique and creative locations for businesses are okay now.
Do Business in Unique Locations
The way we work is evolving, and your customers know it. 2020 brought financial hardship to many organizations. If you need to lower overhead expenses by operating in a smaller location or even a non-traditional site, everyone understands. To help ease the cost of office furniture, OfficeMakers offers competitive financing options available
Who says you cannot move your office into a storefront or a former restaurant? Commercial landlords are eager to lease space, so you might get a terrific deal on the rent by following these office trends.
Unconventional office spaces can help brand your company, encourage employees to think outside the box, and present new profitable opportunities!
Whether your company needs to find a new home or not, your lobby will undoubtedly need a facelift.
Refresh Your Waiting Rooms
Your new lobby should highlight cozy seating and a welcoming atmosphere while still adhering to a social habit for distance and personal space.
Remember that social distancing could also mean staggered meetings. You may have more people coming and going during a given day, and wait periods may be extended.
Natural lighting and bigger, breathable spaces will be popular! Take advantage of any natural light available (both for its mood-boosting effects and germicidal tendencies) by installing glass doors and windows wherever possible.
Office Trends Make Cubicles Okay
Cubicles were an office staple in the 1990s, but they were losing popularity in the new millennium. We predict those organizations that require more than a skeleton crew on site — say government agencies or a daily newspaper, for instance — will take a renewed interest in cubicles for the sake of social distancing and individual storage abilities.
At OfficeMakers, we know office trends are changing! Whether you work in a customer service setting, publishing, government, finance, or education sectors, we have the modern office furniture choices you need to navigate our “new normal.”
Contact us to see how we can help you create the perfect space.
Businesses are reevaluating their office and waiting room furniture to keep customers and employees safe when they stop by for in-person appointments or report for work each day.
This means businesses have had to get creative and implement new safety and sanitization standards that affect every area of the company building, especially public waiting rooms and lobbies.
If you are ready to rethink your waiting area, OfficeMakers can help!
Waiting Rooms Create The First Impression for Clients
Perception is everything and your office waiting room or lobby is the first space your clients see when they enter into your place of business. A clean and well-kept space, complete with inviting furnishings, sends a message that your company cares about its customers and strives to put forth a professional atmosphere that is safe for all.
In the “Covid-Age,” it is more important than ever to put your best foot forward and provide a waiting room area that is safe and filled with clean furnishings. Be sure to also consider installing hand sanitizer stations and protective screens at your reception desk.
Utilize Layout and Design to Promote Distancing
To promote distanced seating in your waiting room, less is more when it comes to furnishing around the office. Design your waiting room in such a way that there’s enough seating available for your clients, and that it is spread out to promote safe distancing while waiting for their appointment.
Before Covid-19, waiting rooms were often packed with furnishings, but now you should rethink the design and layout so that everyone can stay apart and stay safe. OfficeMakers has over 30 years of experience in designing offices and can help you maximize the square footage you have to work with.
Use Antimicrobial Chairs to Make Sanitizing Easier
Antimicrobial chairs are typically upholstered with vinyl or leather that has been treated with antimicrobial compounds during the manufacturing process so that virus, mold, and bacteria cells are destroyed on contact and are unable to grow and spread diseases.
Make Waiting Room Furniture Comfortable for Long Wait Times
While no business likes to keep clients waiting, it is sometimes necessary to ensure you are providing everyone with the best service possible. At OfficeMakers, we offer a complete line of modern and relaxing lobby furniture that will offer your clients comfortable seating while they wait to be seen by one of your employees. When people are comfortable, they don’t mind waiting a little longer.
Partner with OfficeMakers Your Bulk Office Furniture Needs
OfficeMakers takes the guesswork out of selecting high-quality office furnishings for your waiting room or lobby. We sell everything from antimicrobial doctor’s office and hospital seating to chairs and filing solutions.
Our furniture is contemporary and inviting, and is easy to clean so that you can maintain a safe and healthy environment for customers and employees alike.
At OfficeMakers, we’re office furniture experts and have been in the business of making your business look its best since 1989. In these unprecedented times, it is important to select waiting room furnishings that look good and keep your clients safe and socially distanced at the same time.
Whether you are looking to upgrade your existing office furnishings or would like to design a completely new waiting room layout, contact us today, so we can help!
The office landscape is currently being transformed due to Covid. With more and more people working from home because of the pandemic, businesses are finding that they have a surplus of office space that they just aren’t using. Some businesses have been struggling to adapt to changing circumstances, but even if you don’t find yourself struggling now, it’s important to be prepared for the future. Here are some great tips to help you future-proof your office setup, so whatever happens, you’ll be ready. OfficeMakers can help you create the ideal workspace for your home or office.
Utilize Modular Products
Modular office furniture products make it easy to scale up and downsize as needed. Modular products are simple to set up and break down and can be used to create a wide variety of different layouts, so you can reconfigure your office space as needed. These products can be folded up to store away when they aren’t needed and can be set up in a matter of minutes to expand your space to accommodate more workers or larger conferences. Hon workstations are great office space solutions that can breathe new life into your office setup.
Flexible workspaces are trendy right now and can help you keep up with changing times, which means that you can adapt without needing to refit your entire office or move into a new space in the future. It shows off that you’re a progressive company focused on creating a modern and efficient working environment for your employees.
Create the Ideal Workspace in Coworking Spaces
Creating coworking areas throughout your office space is a great idea for a few reasons. First, it makes collaboration and teamwork easier. These spaces are great for meetings, collaborative projects, and employees who simply work better in the company of others. In addition, large coworking areas are easier to clean and sanitize. This has become so important in the days of the pandemic, so creating these spaces is a great step towards keeping your employees healthy and safe.
With more people working from home, the best coworking spaces are great areas for employees who may only spend a few hours a week in the office. This means it doesn’t necessarily make sense for employees to each have their own personal desk space, but they still need somewhere to set up their gear when they’re in the office.
Install Space Dividers
Rather than using cubicle walls, install space dividers. These dividers can break your spaces down into different areas without isolating workers from one another. It’s a great solution when you don’t want a totally open concept office but don’t want the limitations of cubicles. Space dividers can be easily rearranged or moved around to create new spaces. Temporary space dividers are great for creating conference areas on the fly or setting up more private spaces when needed.
Partner With An Office Furniture Company
As your office space needs change, it’s important to adapt quickly, which can help you retain employees and stay on top of your competition. Partnering with an office furniture company is a great way to establish a relationship to help you meet your changing needs. This relationship can be valuable when you want to design the most efficient office space to suit your business and your employees.
OfficeMakers has three decades of experience making workspaces better and can help you create the ideal workspace for optimal productivity. In today’s changing world, it’s important to find office solutions that respect social distancing guidelines and adapt to remote workers. We offer a wide variety of options for businesses in many different industries. Whether you need office furniture, modular space solutions, or modern workspaces, we are happy to help!

We invest our time and energy in those drawings at no charge in hopes of earning your business. Of course you will want to shop, we all do, just let the other guys do their own work.

Office Cubicles Remote Design & Virtual Consultations
We were doing remote design consultations before Covid-19. It’s not just for health and safety, it really streamlines the process. Office Cubicle quotes that used to involve weeks of back and forth and emails can now be completed with one or two 30 minute web conferences.
Schooling at home or going back to school? This is a decision every parent is having to make. We are having more people than ever call us looking for small student desks for their children to use for school work.
We had several used options but those sold out quick, and all of our suppliers of affordable student desks are out of stock at the time of this blog post.
We have put together a small home office desk and chair package at a very affordable price. Despite the price both the chair and the desk carry a 10 year warranty. The optional drawers have soft closing rails.
That is something usually reserved for very high end lines. So it is a pleasant surprise to see something in this price point with that level of quality.
Quality that Lasts
OfficeMakers has always prided ourselves on providing quality products we can stand behind. Frankly, we won’t sell junk. But that doesn’t mean it has to break the bank.
