Desks with Superstructure: very popular in Victorian times and earlier. These desks - which take many forms Dickens desks bankers desks roll top desks Carlton House Desks etc - have a raised structure at the back of the desk with drawers small cupboards or pigeon holes for stationery. Many of these desks were designed to stand against a wall and have a relatively plain or even unfinished rear elevation. Some desks have flat writing surfaces some have raised writing slopes with storage underneath - those with the slope are becoming popular again since the slope provides an ideal "work station" for a laptop computer.
Do You Need Drawers? If you already have cabinets or other storage systems in the room then you may not need drawers in your home office desk. However you may want to keep all your items related to your work at one place. A desk with drawers is a good idea. It helps keep your desk neat clean and organized. All small items can be kept in the drawers. Family members will not search their own lost items in the desk because they know only your office work related items are kept in the drawers.
When you pay attention to all these issues then you will be able to buy the right desk. Home office desks can be ordered online or purchased from a local store. Online stores have a wide range of selection. You can compare prices. The advantage of buying from an offline store is that you can see the desk in person. It ensures you buy the desk that matches your needs and preferences.
Simple L-Shaped or U-Shaped Design - Simple rectangle desk can be placed anywhere in the room. L-shaped desk are suitable for the corner space. U-shaped design is used in the middle of the room. This type of desk may have a slight curve or a complete U-shape. The U-shaped design gives you more functionality and flexibility. You can keep your work related items on your sides as well. You will have access to many more items at your arms length. However a desk with such a design cannot be placed anywhere. It can be difficult to place it somewhere else if you decide to rearrange everything in the room.
Desks to be seen from all angles: as mentioned above some desks were always designed to stand against a wall. The original cabinet makers therefore spent less time finishing the rear elevation of the desk sometimes even leaving it with relatively unfinished timbers. Other desks were however always designed to make an impression on anyone entering a room and facing the person sitting behind the desk. In this instance the "rear" of the desks would be highly polished panelled and often decorated or carved. Partners’ Desks also serve this purpose in offering an interesting and usable rear facade.
PC or Laptop - A laptop does not require a desk with too many slots. A simple flat top desk is sufficient for the purpose. However a desktop computer requires proper slots in the desk to accommodate all the computer parts. Make sure the desk can accommodate additional computer accessories like printer. Less space is needed for an all-in-one printer but more space is needed if the printer and scanner are two separate units. If you use a landline phone or fax machine then the desk should have the space or slot for such a device.
