Choosing the Right Desk For Your Occupation

Aug 7, 2021

If you work in an office, you may spend hours at a time sitting at your desk. Choosing the right desk for your occupation is important to your productivity, comfortability, and overall health.

Types of Desks

To determine what type of desk most suits your, think about how you use it. If you only need a space for your laptop, a simple writing desk will work for you. On the other hand, if you have loads of daily paperwork you will require more space and storage. Determine how you will use your desk before deciding which type of desk to choose.

Writing Desk

A writing desk’s main purpose is to provide a surface for your laptop and is commonly found in both the home and the office. They are minimalist, have limited storage and usually fit comfortably against a wall. Writing desks are good for bloggers, authors, or anyone with a laptop.

Computer Desk

Slightly larger than writing desks, computer desks have space for both a computer and a monitor. They normally have storage for office supplies and built-in space for hardware components. Computer desks are good for offices with several computers or those who need a basic, functional desk.

Corner Desk or L-Desk

Corner desks are “L” shaped and, can fit snugly into any corner of your office or home or stick out from a wall giving your extra space. They are great for those who don’t have a lot of room but still need a workspace. A corner desk is a great solution for those who need to save space in their work environment- whether at home or in an office.

Secretary Desk

These desks are single pieces of furniture with a hinged desktop surface. They usually have space on top for storage as well. Secretary desks are typically ornate and beautiful, perfect for those who want a luxurious desk but don’t have a lot of space.

Credenza Desk

These desks are beautiful statements combining a desk with a credenza. They provide plenty of space for your computer, office supplies, books, and décor. These desks are a fashion statement, perfect for your home.

Executive Desk

Executive desks are large, beautiful, and detailed. They are common in large offices and have space for your computer, paperwork, books, and more. They have lots of drawers and storage and are usually decorated with charming details. An executive desk will make a statement in your office.

Standing Desk

Standing desks are a recent solution to the negative impact sitting at a desk may have on your body. Sitting at a desk for extended periods of time can decrease your blood flow and cause back, leg, and foot pain. Standing desks provide a surface for your computer at your eye level while standing. They’re the best option for those who have felt the negative impacts of a traditional sitting desk.
