Desks - How to Choose the Right Desk for your Office

Posted by Office Furniture on February 25th, 2019

A desk is arguably one of the most important items in our office space. It is where we spend the majority of our time, complete most of our work and make vital business decisions. So when buying a desk for our office, it is important that we get it right. There are so many options out there, it can be a confusing minefield to conquer. To help you make the right decision, we are going to discuss the dos and don'ts in the desk purchasing world...  

Do Look at Different Types

There are several different types of desks out there: dog bone, cubicles or just good old regular rectangular desks. In order to make the correct purchase for you, you need to think about the type that best suits your working style and needs. You also need to think about the space that you have allocated for your desk- how can you best utilize that space? It might be the case that a corner desk would work better than a U shaped one if you have a smaller office space.  

Don't Order Without Measuring Your Space

Before you take the plunge and purchase your desk, ensure that you measure your workspace and check the dimensions of your preferred option. There is nothing worse than buying a desk and realizing it's much too big for your office!

Do Think About What You Need in a Desk

Is it lots of storage? Is it having enough desktop space for all of your paperwork? Is it having enough room underneath to allow you to stretch your legs out during a long and tedious day? Make a list of what you use your desk for and features that are important to you. This will help you make the right choice. Remember, a desk should work for you, not just the space.

Don't Forget to Set a Budget

There are various types of desks with hugely varying costs out there. Setting a budget is important so that you don't overspend. Sometimes it can be tempting to go for an all singing and all dancing option, but do you really need it and can you afford it? Setting a budget will ensure that you don't regret your purchase and you won't suffer financially.

Do Try and Enjoy the Experience

Buying a new desk can be an exciting time. Shop around, look at different options and choose a desk that you'll enjoy working at for years to come.
