Having the perfect piece of office desk will add to your productivity and make your day go much smoother. On the contrary, wrong office desks will just ruin your day and make you miserable.
There are few phenomenal parameters and constraints that you need to consider before investing in the new office desk:
1 IDENTIFY HOW YOU WILL USE THE OFFICE DESK:
You need to first analyze how you will use the floating desks or the nature of work you intend to do on it.
Example,- if you mostly use a PC, then the desk should have the space or compartment to keep the CPU below it and there should be built in wiring holes for the electrical connections.
-If, your work revolves around having too many spreadsheets or heavy books or ample of important papers, then the desk that you choose should provide for shelves or drawers to hold these papers safely.
-If your need is a multipurpose desk that has space for computer and papers and can also assist in being a meeting space then an “L”-shaped desk will be best for you and if the finances are adequate then go for a “U” –shaped desk that will look impressive and also provide more space for your stuff.
-If you have space constraints, then opting for computer desk or mobile computer cart will be a good decision.
2 ANALYZE YOUR WORKSTYLE PATTERN AND EQUIPMENTS:
The pattern of your work also plays an important role in deciding the type of office desk that you should opt for. If you are the neat and clutter free work person, then the space required by you will be much less. Also if the equipments that you intend to use while working are less then a small office desk will be appropriate for you.
3 ERGONOMICS AND SPACE-
These are a few considerations that you need to consider before opting for your wall mounted floating desk:
The desk should have enough space for your legs, the height of the desk should ideally be 29 to 30 inches to provide you with enough leg space.
Sitting behind the desk there should be a space of three feet, and space between two pieces of office furniture should be at least three feet.
The desktop and all the materials that will be used should be within comfortable and easy reach.
4 SURFACE OF THE OFFICE DESK
The surface of the office desk you desire is also an important consideration. You could choose between laminate, metal or steel, wood or veneer. The amount you want to invest, the durability you desire or the look – what matters the most to you? Laminated floating desks are the popular and affordable choice; they are durable and come in attractive colors and wood grain patterns.
Metal and steel wall mounted desks may not look professional but are suitable for long term use and keeping heavy stuff. Wood and veneer desks are the trendiest ones but are also the costliest and delicate ones. They are not meant for rough and heavy use. Ponder and select the right office desk so that it contributes to your work.
