Discover the amazing ways Modular Seating can improve your school in aspects you possibly hadn’t even thought of with our brand new blog post…
Modular seating is a modern furniture concept which allows various different-sized and different-shaped units to be configured together to form all kinds of layouts to fit all kinds of rooms and spaces. Here, we will list the 7 ways modular seating can improve your school.
1) Revitalise old, worn rooms quickly and easily
Fresh, new, brightly-coloured seating can breathe life into tiring rooms and make a stunning visual impact. What’s more, it can be done quickly and with far less hassle than, say, laying new carpets and painting walls. All you need to do is choose some seating you like, order it, wait for it to arrive and have the delivery guys drop it into place. Simple.
2) Improved communal atmospheres
Arranging seating into group configurations can transform a very segmented room into one with a thriving atmosphere where students can mingle in large groups and really get the conversation flowing (as long as the teachers allow it!)
3) More opportunities for shared learning activities
Given that modular seating can be configured in almost any way imaginable, students are able to set up an arrangement that allows them to tackle group tasks best in a matter of minutes.
4) Freedom, flexibility for new and innovative teaching plans
Similarly to the point made above, teachers will also be able to devise various new lesson plans based around teamwork activities which can be carried out thanks to modular seating.
5) Students and teachers alike take pride in new-look common rooms, classrooms and receptions
Students love it when they get new ‘stuff’. So brand-new, brightly-coloured, comfortable modular seating is likely to give them a reason to feel proud of their newly-renovated common room. We would guess that means better behaviour, but wouldnt bank on it!
6) Durability, longevity of use
Forget replacing broken chairs every few months, or torn fabrics on cheap sofas. The modular seating we manufacture (Concept2) is made with solid wooden frames and upholstered in only the most hard-wearing contract fabrics and faux leathers. This means you are likely to get use out of your seating for the best part of a decade. That also means you can use your budget for more important things than torn cushions etc.
7) It makes a great impression on visitors
Offsted visits? Parents scouting schools for their children? Governors? Whoever it might be, modular seating in bright colours and funky layouts can help to make a truly great and lasting impression on visitors.
