If you work from home then you need a good desk that is suitable for your purpose. It must match your requirements and preferences. It should have good construction and design. Home office desks are available in a wide range of options so it can be difficult to decide what type of desk is right for you. A desk may seem a simple piece of furniture but there are many things to consider when buying it for your home office. Following information will prove useful in selecting the right desk for your home office purpose.
Writing desks, depending on whether you purchase one from an office supply store, a furniture store or an antique shop, can range in price anywhere from one hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Your choice depends on what type of personal statement you prefer to make.
Design, Style, Color and Material - Do you need feet rest in your desk? Should it have keyboard holder that slides inside when not in use? Home office desks are available in a variety of designs, styles, colors and materials. Choose a desk that matches your needs and preferences. Select a desk with sober color. It will match well with any type of interior theme. You do not want to be distracted by bright colors while working. Office desks made of expensive wood or steel can be expensive. There are computer desks that can be assembled and disassembled quickly. Such a design is easy to move and transport.
Desks to be seen from all angles: as mentioned above some desks were always designed to stand against a wall. The original cabinet makers therefore spent less time finishing the rear elevation of the desk, sometimes even leaving it with relatively unfinished timbers. Other desks were however always designed to make an impression on anyone entering a room and facing the person sitting behind the desk. In this instance the "rear" of the desks would be highly polished, panelled and often decorated or carved. Partners’ Desks also serve this purpose in offering an interesting and usable rear facade.
Desks versus Writing Tables and Library Tables: Writing and Library Tables come in much the same sizes as Desks, however the key difference being that the tables usually only have a single line of frieze drawers under the work surface. (Writing tables have drawers on one side of the table only - library tables have drawers to both sides - sometimes called Partners’ tables). Tables can provide an interesting alternative to a desk if only limited storage is required. Aesthetically a table can make the room look larger since more of the floor can be seen as compared to the bulk of a desk that comes right down to the floor. For buyers with attractive floor coverings (or bare wood) a writing or library table can be a very interesting alternative to a desk. Some Clients also specify both Desk and Writing Table/Library Table for their office. The table can be used as an extra work space (perhaps separating paperwork from computer work - or as a meeting table. The style and wood of desk and table will need to be compatible and the leather work surfaces (where fitted) will also need to be matched.
Chinese Altar Table: The versatility of this table can be used as an altar, dining room buffet, sofa table, or office computer credenza. It is designed with two end tables or bed-sized tables, joined together with a solid piece of cypress wood. Each table has a storage drawer carved on all four sides.
