Choose The Perfect Desk For Your Work From Home Space

Size, shape, storage and ergonomics matter


After more than a year of working from home, we’ve all settled into our WFH (Work From Home) corners.  If you’re still using the pieces of furniture that double duty as your desk or work chair, we’re hoping that you rethink this, and seriously consider the benefits of having an ergonomically-sound desk that suits your taste.  We’re on our third edition of ECQ, and by now, we are realizing that this hybrid work arrangement may be here to stay.  It’s time to indulge yourself by creating a working space that’s both tasteful and functional.  As with the office that you probably miss, the desk will be the centerpiece of your home office in terms of design and activity.

Remember these when shopping for your desk:


The good news is that whether you’re working from home, having an online class, starting a new business or hobby, or simply browsing the net, stylish selections that combine comfort, functionality and designs that you’ll love are out in the local furniture market.  Consider these tips when picking your work from home desk:


Choose a desk that’s right for your needs and that suits your space and style. Consider your workflow and activities to make sure that you can use your desk comfortably and productively.


Size (and Shape) Does Matter. Making the mistake of buying a desk that’s either too big for your space or too small for the way you work will not be good for your productivity and comfort.


You’ll also discover that apart from size, your desk shape does matter in helping you getting organized. Rectangular desks are the most popular choice, and these are available in a variety of width and depth sizes. Corner desks for awkward spaces, and wave desks that provide you with the benefits of a rectangular desk while also giving you a larger desk top, are also great alternatives.


Consider Storage. Without any storage, your home desk can become cluttered and disorganized. Opting for a chest with drawers is an ideal way to keep your workspace organized and to make sure that all your essentials are at your fingertips. Better still, opt for a desk and storage combination.


Sitting Well. Sitting comfortably at your desk is necessary for making sure that you can be as productive as possible as you work. It will also ensure your back is continuously supported. Our Home has ergonomic chairs for a healthy WHF, as well as desk lamps to make sure your area is properly lighted.
