Your office desk is where the magic happens. It’s your main workstation where you do your planning, writing, emailing, working, studying, filing, crafting, homework, and more. Your desk is where you’re at your most productive; if you work from home, it’s your business, so choosing the perfect desk to fit your needs is a big decision. With a multitude of options, choosing a desk has never been more exciting. To help you find the perfect desk, there are a few features you can search by to make the shopping process easier.
The main elements to consider when shopping online for a new desk are form, function, and brand. When searching online for a new desk, consider first the size of the room. Will your desk go in a spacious office or in a cosy corner? Corner desks, for example, fit perfectly into small spaces, making them a perfect child’s desk. On the other end of the spectrum, commercial office desks and legal desks have more generous proportions, extra leg room, multiple drawers, and sometimes even an attached bookcase to create ample room for storage.
What will you use your desk for? If you’re a writer or don’t plan to be using a desktop computer, a writing desk or bureau is a functional and pared-down compact office unto itself. Many writing desks are space-efficient and come with a hideaway function for folding, a roll top, or drawers in order to create a refined, tidy appearance when not in use. Modern writing desks usually have space for a laptop computer, leaving enough room for the user to be comfortable and stay organized while deep in concentration.
Computer desks are ergonomically designed for those who work for long periods of time at a desk and need to sit at their desk without fear of injury. Computer desks may come with an extra keyboard tray not only to eliminate clutter, but the tray may also be height-adjustable or placed at an optimum ergonomic height for the user. A computer desk might also come with a series of cord ports in the top of the desk to help manage the flow of cables from computer to floor and keep the workspace neat and tidy. A computer desk might also feature a raised platform for your monitor and extra raised space for the computer tower on the floor. For more ergonomic support, a height-adjustable standing desk (some come on swivel casters) creates a stand-up workstation to get your blood flowing.
