What type of desk is right for you?

1.  How do you use your desk space?

Time at the desk
How much time will you spend at the desk throughout an average day? If it’s only an hour or so, the table doesn’t have to be lavish or large. On the other hand, if you work there from morning to evening, you need to consider things like format, quality, design, and functionality.

Size of the table top
What do you need to have close at hand when you work? If you need a lot to get your job done, like a desktop computer as well as a tablet, some filing trays and more, you should consider a larger table top. But if the table only needs to accommodate a laptop and a single binder or notebook, choose a smaller table top allowing more space in your room.

2.  Choose the right desk shape

Classic Rectangular Desks
Straight desks are space-efficient and often used in office landscapes or workplaces where there is limited space. The benefits of these classics also include that they can be placed in different formations in the room and then easily be separated through partitions and table screens.

Ergonomic Wave Desktops
Desks with an ergonomic wave top are ideal if you want to have your most important things close at hand while working. The design also means that you can get close to the table when you work, which gives you an ergonomically correct working position and with good support for your arms..

Corner Desks
Corner desks or L-shaped desks fit well in awkwardly shaped rooms or if you are short of space. They are particularly suitable if the room is to accommodate several functions since the floor surface in the middle of the room can be kept clear. If you add an extension table, you can have meetings directly at your workplace.

3.  Fixed or adjustable height?

Fixed Desk
If you choose a fixed desk, you should adjust the height of the desk according to your own height. When you sit down, your arms should be able to rest against the desk top at approximately a 90-degree angle and your feet should rest on the floor or on a footrest. This way you get the most ergonomic sitting position.

Sit-Stand Desk
Sitting still is for too long is one of the major health hazards of our time and a consequence of the fact that long working days in front of the computer have become the norm. Fortunately, this can be counteracted in several ways – including with the help of a desk that can be raised and lowered.

Continuously switching between sitting and standing during the day is a perfect way to activate the body at work. The height-adjustable function is available on desks in all different colors, shapes and sizes and is an investment in well-being.

4.  Choose colour or wood

Regardless of the shape and format of your desk, you can get it in a design that matches your interior design in general. Our table tops have a durable and easy-care laminate surface and are available in birch, beech, oak, grey, black and white.

5.  Desk accessories

A modesty panel at the bottom works well so the desk can be placed anywhere in the room, for example in an open office landscape. The cover also contributes to a neat overall look by concealing desk pedestals, waste paper bins, and cables neatly.

A desk pedestal for important papers, a cable tray to avoid clutter, a low profile desk drawer that doesn't steal legroom, ergonomic forearm support, monitor arm, desktop mats ... If you take a close look at our range of accessories, chances are that your desk will be just the way you want it. Do it!
