Choosing the Perfect Desk for Your Home Office
If you’re working from home, it is essential to your productivity and your wellbeing that you have a dedicated space, no matter how small it may be, to do your work.
The first thing you need to consider when setting up your home office is purchasing a desk that suits the space you have chosen as well as your needs. Your choice in desk should also support your posture so that you don’t do damage to your body for the many hours you will spend seated at your desk.
Here is our advice for choosing the perfect desk for your home office.
Consider the Space
The first thing you need to do when you are looking to purchase a home office desk is to whip out a tape measure to get the measurements of the space you intend to use for your home office. The area you are working with will determine the size of the desk you’re looking to purchase.
It is worthwhile to consider that you may want to rearrange your home office space from time to time to work with natural light and give yourself a change. In this case, you would need quite a lightweight, versatile desk that can be easily transported.
If you are working with a tight space, a good option would be a desk that can be folded away for storage after use, like the Spacestor Kit Mini Foldable Desk.
Do You Need Storage?
Another important consideration to make when purchasing a home office desk is whether or not you will need space for storage. If you’ve had to make the transition from a traditional office space to a home office in recent months, we’re pretty sure you’ve discovered that it can be annoying to drag your computer, notebooks and any other material you may need from place to place around your home.
You may need to store documents, filing and office supplies. We understand that you would want these items to be easily accessible while you are working.
If you don’t have the option to build storage into your home office, such as installing shelving or if you are working with a particularly tight space, a desk with a built-in storage design is a good option. Check out the Allermuir Crate which has an upstand and open drawer storage.
A desk that offers ample storage means you can keep your work from home office space neat, tidy, and organised, which aids productivity.
Consider the Type of Work You Do
When looking into the type of desk you want to purchase for your home office, it is important to think about the type of work that you are going to do while sitting at your desk.
Do you stay seated for extended periods of time? Do you have paperwork and files spread out in front of you while you work? Do you have a lot of electronics that results in excess cabling? The desk that you choose should be able to handle the kind of work that you do.
If you’re spending countless hours seated, it might be time to consider a sit stand desk to help you take the pressure of sitting all day off your body at the touch of a button.
If you need a good solution to having a large amount of cables, the Frovi Drop Folding Desk has cable management capabilities in a central storage area which hides away cables.
