Antique Writing Furniture - Flat Top Desks: these are the most popular type of desk being the most versatile particularly when a large work space is required for paperwork and/or computer equipment. Various sizes are available from the smallest 36" (91cm) width up to larger workspaces of 72" (183cm) or greater. The depth of the desk is important - the narrower the desk the closer the working material is to the user - a deeper desk allows more storage but some of it may be out of arms reach.
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?
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
Things to Consider when buying your Desk: Use: Consider paperwork versus computer work? Storage needs - drawers versus cupboards? How much work area is actually needed and will you be able to reach it?
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.
Bush Furniture - This is a definite step up in both quality and price. Bush furniture sells everything from home office furniture to computer workstations for large offices. Their L shaped computer desk collection features everything from standard L shaped desks to bow front desks and large multi-desk corner suites.
