Desk Guide

Choose the Right Desk for the Best Results!

How will you use your desk?

Mostly Computer Work

Choose a computer workstation: built just for long hours at a computer system
  • Wire holes/grommets ensure easy and clutter-free wire management
  • Adjustable keyboard platform for greater comfort, less muscle strain

Mostly Paperwork/Reading

Choose a desk with the roomiest surface you can fit into available square footage
  • Helps you spread out when working with spreadsheets or bulky books
  • Even better: extra file space keep papers organized, within easy reach

Computer Work, Paperwork, Meetings

Choose an 'L'-shaped desk setup for more work and meeting space
  • Ample room for computer system
  • Separate workspace for paperwork
  • For face-to-face meetings, look for models with extended overhang to assure visitors legroom
  • If image is critical (important guests or outside clients), opt for wood or veneer surface; more polished and professional than laminate
Step up to 'U'-shaped model for extra workspace and a more impressive presentation
  • 'U'-shaped models work best in roomier offices
  • You will need at least 6'x9' for unit itself, plus an extra 3-4 feet additional space around it

For Your Home Office

Try a computer armoire to hide clutter


  • Doors conceal computer equipment and paperwork when not in use
  • More elegant for home use than traditional desk setup

Schoolwork/Studying: Or Just Tight on Space

Choose a computer workstation: more practical in smaller spaces
  • Compact size works well in dorms, bedrooms, snug corners/small offices
  • Budget-friendly price
  • Handy storage to house disks, paper, books often built right in

Juggling multiple clients or projects?
Need Extra Filing or Storage Space?

Choosing the right filing design or pairing pieces together makes a big difference
  • Lateral files hold more than vertical files – better for heavier volumes like samples, binders, or thick files
  • Full extension drawers have slides that open drawers completely, giving you easier access to back files
  • Pairing pieces together can DOUBLE your filing capacity without taking up extra space (using a hutch on top of a credenza; lateral file hatches)
