Trading desks provide a space for stock workers to take care of everything needed to do their jobs. However, these desks typically see a lot of wear and tear, which can make them inefficient over time. For instance, the finish on a trading desk can become old and/or outdated. That can make it a challenge to work in the high-paced environment of a trading floor. Does this mean you need to replace the desk altogether? No! 

Saraval Industries offers a line of new and used trading desks and technical furniture solutions. When it’s time to update your trading desks, we’ve got you covered! Even better, if the trading desks you’ve got right now are almost good enough, there are plenty of ways to refurbish old desks. Not only is this more environmentally friendly, but it’s also much better for your company’s pocketbook.

Analyzing the Need for Refreshing Trading Desks

Did you know that having a professional appearance can actually make your employees more productive? And it all starts with the trading desk! If your workers have to make do with worn-out furniture, it subconsciously sends them the message that their job must not be very important. 

In fact, when your employees have older, messy desks, it can make them feel more stressed out. On the other hand, if they’re working on a refreshed desk that makes it easier for them to stay decluttered, they’re going to feel less stressed, less anxious, and more ready to hit the ground running!    

When someone tries to work with obsolete furniture, they’ll face an uphill battle to get their job done each day. For one thing, they’ll most likely be dealing with physical discomfort. This would be bad enough on its own, but it also leads to a decline in productivity and office morale. Getting a desk makeover becomes imperative in these circumstances.  

Of course, replacing your trading desks on a regular basis may not be within your budget. Fortunately, you can purchase used trading desks for up to 80% less than the price of a new desk. 

Used doesn’t have to mean outdated, by the way. As long as you keep the finish sharp-looking and have everything necessary for a solid day’s work, you can get the same results from a desk that already has a few years on it. It’s going to be much better than trying to get by with your existing old, broken desks from 10+ years ago. 

Methods of Refreshing Trading Desks without Replacing Furniture

If you want to know how to refurbish a desk, you begin with measurement and evaluation. So, for example, Saraval Industries can measure each of the pertinent pieces on your desk and then evaluate what type of changes you can make with your budget.    

In the majority of cases, you should begin with replacing the surfaces or the end panels. Learning how to repanel a desk can also give you a fresh, new look! 

Replacing the end panels can give your trading desk a whole new life. It also serves a practical function—providing some privacy for an open floor plan. There is a practically limitless list of options, ranging from curved to straight-end panels in a variety of different colors. Whatever new look you want, it’s going to be available! 

Case Studies of Successful Refurbishments

As you can see, implementing some refurbished desk ideas can go a long way. Each of these has a brand-new look, and you can see how much nicer they are now. If you picture yourself having to use one of these desks, which one would you choose? That’s right; one of the refurbished ones!

Environmental Considerations

When it comes to environmental considerations, there is truly no better way to exhibit your company’s commitment to sustainability than by keeping your trading desks out of a landfill. It’s truly appalling how many perfectly good desks are currently in a landfill, which is a sign of our throwaway culture. 

By simply choosing to refurbish your trading desks instead, you can save carbon, resources, and lots of money! Plus, you can have a direct impact on the number of items sitting in a landfill. So, you’ll be able to feel much better about your choices, too! 

Remember the three Rs: Reduce, reuse, and recycle. Below, we’ll learn how to use them to come up with refurbished desk ideas. 

  • Reduce: There is a lot of energy wasted on the production of new furniture. Even something as simple as shipping it from the manufacturer to stores using a lot of natural resources. By choosing to refinish old desks instead, you’ll have an impact on how many natural resources are used. 
  • Reuse: If you happen to have any trading desks that incorporate real wood into their designs, then reusing them becomes even more important. You see, the days of using real wood are almost completely behind us. 

Sadly, this creates even more trash, as modern trading desks are designed to become obsolete in a few years. Instead of throwing away a useful desk, why not find a way to reuse it? Saraval can reuse the existing metal framework of your desk and just change out the outdated wood panels with a new fresh look. 

  • Recycle: How do you recycle an old trading desk? Easily! Simply break it down and use the old pieces when you make something new. Essentially, the primary goal is to prevent anything from going to a landfill that can still be utilized. Society used to live this way due to a lack of availability. We can do so again now to help the environment. 

Get a Professional Appearance with a Refurbished Trading Desk

Refreshing your trading desks can become a must after a while, but this doesn’t have to mean throwing them away and purchasing new desks. Instead, go for a more professional appearance by refurbishing your existing desks. Doing so can make your employees feel less stressed out and increase their productivity! 

When the time finally comes for you to replace your worn-out furniture, turn to Sarval Industries. We have a wide variety of different choices for trading desks, including new and used options. It is always going to be better to pick up a refurbished desk because of the massive savings — up to 80% — and the environmental impact. 

Alternatively, you can refresh your existing trading desks, replace the end panels or worksurfaces, etc. Either way, you’ll be saving a lot of natural resources by purchasing used or refreshing your desks. 

Don’t forget the three Rs: Reduce, reuse, and recycle! Anytime you’re able to use one of these methods, everyone wins. So, join us in turning back the clock to how society used to get the maximum value out of every purchase rather than tossing them away once they show a bit of age. The planet — and your pocketbook — will thank you!
