Maiolaine Bourgeois Desks April 14, 2018 22:09:01
Desks for more than one person: larger desks that have significant depth can be used by two people - facing each other - see Partners’ Desks below. They would likely stand in the middle of an office or study to allow access to all sides of the desk. Obviously such desks also offer a very large work space for a single user.
Glass And Steel Desks - These can be very affordable or quite expensive. Some of the least expensive L shaped desks are made from glass and steel. They can be ideal for smaller corners but have minimal features. The corner usually has a raised platform for a computer screen and there is a small platform at the bottom in the corner for the CPU. Other than that however there is little built in storage included.
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.
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.
All L shaped desks are absolutely not the same. Although the basic configuration is similar there is a great variety of these desks that vary in size and design. Here is a sampling of the choices available with L shaped desks.
L shaped Bow Front Computer Desk - While still offering some space savings these desks are a little bulkier that traditional L shaped desks but usually take up less wall space. Made from either PVC or wood these desks are sturdier than the cheap fiber board desks. The bow front desks also take up less wall space.
