What Kind of Office Desk Do You Need?

Office Desk

Which office desk is right for you? Consider the pros and cons of each.

Choosing the right desk for your office is important.  After all, you will probably be spending quite a bit of time there, so finding the right type is key.  Here, we weigh the pros and cons of a couple different types of office desks.

Corner Desk

Pros:

  • They work well in many different room layouts.
  • Great for multi-purpose rooms, like if you have to share your home office space with a guest room.

Cons:

  • Not much screen privacy
  • Lost space behind the monitor: In a corner office desk, the corner is the strongest point so people typically choose to put a computer monitor there. Unfortunately, quite a bit of desk space is lost back there.

L-Shaped Desk

Pros:

  • Similar design to the corner desk, but more surface area
  • Things are closer than if you were at a straight desk of the same length.

Cons:

U-Shaped Desk

Pros:

  • LOTS of work surface area
  • Great for two monitors or two people sharing a desk

 

Cons:

  • Takes up a huge amount of space
  • If a U-shaped office desk was designed specifically for one space, it may not work if you try to move it to another one.

Along-the-Wall Straight Desk

Pros:

  • Very stable surface
  • Moves well from one place to another
  • No lost space, the entire surface is usable.

Cons:

  • No clear difference between computer space and writing space
  • The wall isn’t a very nice view

Center-of-the-Room Desk

Pros:

  • LOTS of screen privacy

Cons:

  • Keeping cords from looking a mess can be difficult.
  • If your back is to a window, the glare can get pretty bothersome.

Double-Bar Desks

Pros:

  • Work areas are clearly defined.
  • Lots of space to work with

Cons:

  • Requires quite a bit of space.
