Setting up a comfortable, ergonomic workstation at home starts with finding the right computer desk. Whether youre using the desk as part of your home office, or for more occasional use, considering practical things like space and desk design will be a top priority.
You can find various desks to suit a range of styles of interior decor. The shape and size of your desk will be another important decision, and measuring up fully before you start looking is recommended. Narrowing down the type of material youd prefer is another way of completely change the look in a room. You can find a range of new, refurbished and used desks to suit any taste and budget.
Wooden desks are often made from solid wood like oak, through to lightweight MDF chipboard. You can also find unbranded items, popular IKEA styles, brands like Baumhaus and Alphason, and homemade pieces. A collection of items includes compact, foldable laptop tables, computer desks complete with drawers, L-shaped desks and solid, distressed wax pine desks.
Metal desks come in anything from stainless steel to aluminium. Some will be a blend of wood and metal, while others will be completely fashioned from a metal. These can be a hardwearing, robust and stylish addition to a room, adding an industrial feel. Products like wide console tables with a wood effect top and metal laptop table stands are just some of the kinds of items on offer.
Glass table tops can look both stylish and expensive, and may be the perfect fit for your home. The type of frame will change the feel of your desk too, with metal and wood being two options. You can also find material that looks like glass, such as acrylic if youd prefer. Classic examples include black glass computer desktops with sliding shelves and clear glass computer tables.
