Finding the perfect desk for you is personal. This will be the place you spend a majority of your work day – so you have to make it a place that makes sense for you! There are a lot of factors to consider in your search – from storage to style to shape.

When we think of desks, we think of them beyond just being a surface. Afterall, it is a place most people find themselves for 40+ hours a week. For many people, their office desk is their headquarters and it is important to have options to configure this headquarters into the most comfortable, efficient space to promote productivity and comfort. Making or breaking desk comfort for an employee can be as simple as the height of the desk or the legroom space under the desk. For instance, we know that standing desks can be beneficial by promoting better health and lifestyle, but it can also help to engage with people. While open- floor plans are known to help build a positive, friendly working environment cultivating inclusivity and productive relationships, a clean desk communicates a professional environment and an organized employee.

Read on for a guide to what you should be looking for in order to choose a desk that is right for you!

  1. Identify how you’ll use the desk – Are you only doing computer work? Do you have a lot of files and paperwork? Do you need a desk for both? These are all questions you have to consider when looking for a desk. You want to make sure you are purchasing a desk with enough space for you to do that work you do, as well as storage you’ll need.
  2. Is it just you? – Are you going to be working in a communal work space? More than one person in the room? You may want to consider smaller desks to incorporate into the room.
  3. What size is your room? – Do you have space constraints? What shape of desk would work best in your office? Make sure to take all of this into consideration when purchasing a desk.
  4. Don’t forget about ergonomics! – Legroom, arm comfort, and work zones. Make sure you know what is productive and comfortable for you. Are your monitors arranged correctly? Is there enough space under your desk for your legs? All of these are important things to take into consideration.

Having space on and around a desk can also reduce stress caused by unnecessary clutter which facilitates creativity and efficiency.
