How to choose the right home office desk
Your home office desk is much more than somewhere to place your laptop or computer. The right office desk for the home must align fully with your everyday needs, whether it’s acting as a multifunctional piece of furniture, providing much-needed storage or simply providing a comfortable place for you to work. At Olivia’s, our home office desk collection combines style with functionality, letting you get on with the task at hand without compromise. Whether you need a small home office desk to fit into a bedroom, living area or dining room, or you have a dedicated office space to decorate, here’s what you should look for when choosing the right desk.
The first thing to consider is the amount of surface space you need on your desk. Do you typically work with just a laptop, or do you need to consider additional equipment? A cluttered desk leads to a cluttered mind, so you must take into account your work style before purchasing your desk. If you have no choice but to go for a compact home office desk, consider looking for possible storage solutions to go with it. An under desk filing cabinet or storage basket will help keep things organised, while a modern bookcase will allow you to bring personal decorative touches into your office space.
When you consider how much time is spent at a desk, it’s important to keep comfort in mind at all times. Your home office desk should align with your height with plenty of space to position your screen or monitor roughly 20 inches away from you. Ensure you have plenty of room underneath your desk to stretch out; our stylish open frame desks are a great way to combine comfort and style.
