Furnishing School Staff Rooms Offices Reception areas
School furniture budget planning

Budget planning and adherence to regulations in the furnishing of classrooms can sometimes mean that educators run out of ideas when it comes to kitting out staff rooms, reception areas and offices. Luckily these days you’ll find a huge selection of thoughtfully designed, practical and great looking furniture to suit all of these spaces.

Where to start with staff room design

1. Where to start with staff room design

Used for relaxing, socialising, working and even eating, the school furniture you choose for this room needs to work as hard as your teachers do. Start by planning the space to maximise usage – this is an area that has to multitask.

Mix and match soft furnishings with practical pieces

2. Mix and match soft furnishings with practical pieces

Staff will appreciate the luxury of a comfortable sofa or chair after a day on their feet. Add a meeting or study table with matching chairs to allow people to work or eat in greater comfort. Remember to incorporate lockable storage for personal belongings too and ideally a refreshment area with easy to clean surfaces and storage for beverages and crockery.

What key pieces of furniture does a school office need?

3. What key pieces of furniture does a school office need?

School office furniture need to be fully functional, pleasant working spaces where people can spend eight hours or more. Don’t forget that as well as desks, dedicated offices require ergonomic, fully-adjustable seating and a range of secure storage for filing and office supplies.

Choose desks with extra functionality

4. Choose desks with extra functionality

Choose from individual or shared desks with partitions for privacy and acoustic protection as well as built-in cable management and storage for personal possessions. This area may also benefit from a more formal meeting or board table with matching chairs.

Multi-purpose meeting tables and chairs

5. Multi-purpose meeting tables and chairs

Where space is tight, meeting tables are available in designs that simply fold up and can easily be wheeled away for storage. Stacking chairs can be a useful addition as they can also be stored away or transported elsewhere on dedicated trolleys.

Reception desks that work for all of your visitors

6. Reception desks that work for all of your visitors

Always start with a reception desk designed for the number of receptionists and the type of work they’ll be undertaking at it. Consider fully accessible designs with high and low access, suitable for engaging with children, adults and wheelchair users

How to make waiting areas welcoming

7. How to make waiting areas welcoming

If the reception area incorporates a waiting area as well as a public-facing information point, consider modular, space-saving seating to create a dedicated space for visitors. Armless chairs and couches are a great way to maximise seating. Consider adding coffee or side tables for drinks and paperwork too

Multitasking furniture for informal spaces

8. Multitasking furniture for informal spaces

Booth seating and modular school furniture styles work well in areas that can be repurposed for informal meetings or training. These useful commercial workhorses can also be used as study furniture for older students or in breakout spaces.
