You’re finally ready to get that home office set up, or sneak a dedicated work space into another room.


Now it’s just a matter of finding the perfect Office Desk.


And, honestly, there’s not a big list of do’s and don’ts when it comes to choosing one. But there are some things to consider…


What’s your style?

The way a desk looks won’t necessarily impact it’s function, but it will change the way you feel about your space.


A home office desk that reflects your style and makes you feel good about your work area makes for a better mood and more productivity.


Sizing things up.

We always stress how important it is to measure before buying any furniture, and that applies to your home office desk too.


Measure.  Will the desk physically fit in the space?

How about visually? Does it feel in scale with the room size and other furniture (if any) in it?

Is the desk surface sufficient for your needs?


Power play.

It’s safe to say that between laptops, phones, and tablets, most of us won’t be able to work for long without a power source.


Have a seat.

Even though the desk chair isn’t part of the desk, it is an essential piece of the puzzle, and may help you narrow your choices.


Got storage?

Think about how you’ll be using the desk to determine type and quantity of storage needed.


Is a center drawer with a pencil tray sufficient, or do you need more?

Will you have files that require a file drawer?

How about a center drop front drawer for storing a keyboard?
