Writing desks depending on whether you purchase one from an office supply store a furniture store or an antique shop can range in price anywhere from one hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. Your choice depends on what type of personal statement you prefer to make.
Accommodate More Than One Person - Decide beforehand if the desk will be used only by you or more than one person. This is an important question to ask before designing a wall side desk. A standard rectangle desk can be used by four or more people at the same time. That is not the case with an L-shaped or I-shaped desk that does not have sufficient length. If you deal with clients at home then take a look at home office desks that can be used by more than one person. Your clients will feel comfortable while dealing with you. If someone else will be working along with you at the same time then take the opinion of the other person as well before you buy the home office desk.
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.
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.
Real Wood L shaped Computer Desk - You can spend a lot more money for a real wood desk. These desks are sturdier and last longer than the cheaper alternatives. They also include more features like built in storage space.
