Other Furniture and Decorations: will the new desk or table match the other fitting and furniture in the room and its decorations? Sometimes a beautiful antique desk or table can actually be the focal point of the room and other pieces and decorations will be bought to match
Desks versus Writing Tables and Library Tables: Writing and Library Tables come in much the same sizes as Desks however the key difference being that the tables usually only have a single line of frieze drawers under the work surface. (Writing tables have drawers on one side of the table only - library tables have drawers to both sides - sometimes called Partners’ tables). Tables can provide an interesting alternative to a desk if only limited storage is required. Aesthetically a table can make the room look larger since more of the floor can be seen as compared to the bulk of a desk that comes right down to the floor. For buyers with attractive floor coverings (or bare wood) a writing or library table can be a very interesting alternative to a desk. Some Clients also specify both Desk and Writing Table/Library Table for their office. The table can be used as an extra work space (perhaps separating paperwork from computer work - or as a meeting table. The style and wood of desk and table will need to be compatible and the leather work surfaces (where fitted) will also need to be matched.
Design Style Color and Material - Do you need feet rest in your desk? Should it have keyboard holder that slides inside when not in use? Home office desks are available in a variety of designs styles colors and materials. Choose a desk that matches your needs and preferences. Select a desk with sober color. It will match well with any type of interior theme. You do not want to be distracted by bright colors while working. Office desks made of expensive wood or steel can be expensive. There are computer desks that can be assembled and disassembled quickly. Such a design is easy to move and transport.
Practical Matters: Access for installation - most desks are made in three pieces (two pedestals and a top) but a one piece desk or table may require need the access into the room itself to be checked (remember to check the stairs if it is going above the ground floor). Most professional furniture movers such as those employed by Antiquedesks.net can manoeuvre large piece of furnitures but sometimes it just doesn’t fit!
Self Assembled L shaped Computer Desk - Made by companies like Sauder these desks are the ones you find in big box retail stores as well as major office supply retail outlets. These desks are fairly easy to assemble but can be flimsy. They are often made from particle board fiber board or other wood product materials rather than solid natural wood. They are very economical and fit well in most small corners. For a little extra (but less than $150) Techni Mobili has some very stylish alternatives.
Size: Does it fit the room? Can you access the desk and other parts of the room? Is it a comfortable height (small adjustments can be made - but only small changes)? Kneehole height and width? Check the depth of the desk so that the work surface can actually be reached?
