Home office furniture compared to Commercial Office Furniture
by Terry Canup

Differences in the two can be subtle or dramatic

Now that you have selected the look of your office space, you need to decide whether you want industrial or consumer grade furniture. Both are available for you to buy. Which you choose really depends on your personal use. As a general rule, commercial furniture is built for heavy daily use. You see a lot more steel construction in desks from brands like HON. While functional, these steel desks are not particularly attractive in a home environment. They are not designed for that purpose. Virtually all of the metal products made for home office use are on the very inexpensive side of the business and would not hold up to commercial use. Some even state this on their products.

                for the home
There are a number of commercial grade wood office groups out there from many different companies. Many of them also make "HO" or home-office offerings, that crossover between divisions. DMI from FlexSteel, is an excellent example. They are currently the #1 manufacturer of commercial wood office groups, and make some of the best home office product, under their higher end Wynwood division.

Much of the consumer grade product is produced as "RTA", or Ready-To-Assemble. This is also known as "KD" or Knock-Down product. Building furniture in this manner makes it much less expensive to ship. The drawback is that completely KD furniture might not be as sturdy for commercial use. Because of this, most commercial grade office product is shipped as completely assembled furniture from the factory.
Sauder is one of the best RTA
Some manufacturers produce RTA commercial grade. Sauder, and to some extent, Ashley, are good examples. Sauder's higher end product and Ashley's mid-line product is KD, but designed for heavier use. These items ship in disassembled parts. It tends to be less expensive because of production and transportation savings. Ashley's high-end product, like most high-end office furniture is shipped assembled. Fortunately, there is a wide selection of vendors from which to choose, depending on your budget, work requirements, and the look you are trying to achieve in the room.

If you just want function to hold up a laptop, you need not spend much money. If you want an office space in your home that makes you feel productive when using it, you may need to expand your budget a bit. If you want a sumptuous office space that presents an image to your visitors, then a wide selection of beautiful furniture is available to you.
