How Do I Choose the Right Computer Desk?

June 29, 2021

No matter where you’re working from these days, there’s a really good chance you’re getting things done on a computer. Maybe you’re even reading this during your office hours – and if you are, we think we know why. When you’re not working on a surface that’s right for your needs, it’s annoying at best and physically uncomfortable at worst. You need a computer desk that’s tailored to you and your work style.

And when it’s time to pick one out for yourself or for the people who work for you, you need to keep a few things in mind for the best possible experience.

Different Keystrokes for Different Folks

The most important thing for you to know is that the right computer desk for one person may not be right for someone else. If you’re working from home, your ideal home office desk should serve all of your needs so well, you’ll forget what it was like to have worked on a coffee table or put the “lap” in “laptop.” If you’re buying computer desks for your staff, you’ll need to consider what their individual needs might be. Here’s what you should know before you buy anything:

Work With Your Setup

Can you get everything done with just one laptop? Do you need something to hold a desktop setup and maybe a few monitors? Is a printer, a scanner, or some other machine crucial for your day-to-day? Consider how much stuff you and your employees use every day, because you need to be able to keep everything (especially if you have a lot of cords) organized.

Work With Your Space

If your dream desk is as big as George Steinbrenner’s, you’d better have the space for it. Take measurements of your available space now to save you a big headache later.

Work With Your Style

Whether you’d like a nice L-shaped desk for your lobby area or a standing desk for your health, get a computer desk shape that suits you and a color or material that suits your office space.
