Posted by admin | Furniture | Posted on January 4th, 2012
Whether you are running a home-based business or are simply looking to set up a corner of your home as a dedicated computer space to catch up with emails and correspondence, the right desk is essential. A desk is the centerpiece of any office and is the key to creating a professional looking work area in the home. We take a look at all you need to know to select a desk that will suit you and your home perfectly and help you work more productively too.
If you are on a tight budget, you’ll often find the most competitive desk prices online. You can save by purchasing a flat pack desk that you assemble yourself at home. Look for all-in-one office supply companies such as Ryman where you can buy your desk, storage, and stationery supplies all from the same site, saving on shipping costs.
You and your work
Let your line of work guide you when it comes to choosing the right desk for your home. Does your working day produce mountains of paperwork? Then look for a desk with a larger surface area and built-in storage to allow you the space you need to store it neatly. Is all your work done online or over the phone? Then a more compact desk with room enough for your laptop or PC is all you need.
PC or laptop?
If you use a PC for work, look out for desks that come with under desk storage for your PC tower and office equipment. This helps to free up valuable surface space, giving you a larger work area and storage space for other office equipment, folders and papers.
If you’re short of space for your home office desk, there are lots of ways for you to create a useful and comfortable work area without taking up valuable floor space. L-shaped desks are ideal for small corner spaces, giving you extra room to work and they’re ideal for meetings too. If you’re simply using a laptop, you might want to consider a small mobile desk on wheels that you can move around with ease into the tightest of spaces as and when you need it. Armoires featuring a pull out desktop are brilliant for tight spaces and also provide lots of built-in overhead storage.
