With more people choosing to work from home, and children increasingly using computers for homework and recreation, homeowners are choosing to buy specific office furniture for their homes. Whether you’re lucky enough to have a room you can dedicate as a home office space, or you need to fit a computer desk into your living or dining areas, finding the right home office furniture is important.
When you’re shopping for computer desks and office furniture, it’s important to remember that you’re still furnishing your home. Why choose cheap, inadequate office furniture any more than you would choose a cheap, inadequate dining table or bed? Just because you’re using the furniture to work, rather than to relax, it doesn’t follow that the computer desk has to be of poorer quality than you would normally choose. In fact, if you work from home, you’ll probably be spending more time in your office than in any other room of your home, so the computer desk should actually be better quality, if anything.
The environment you work in should be comfortable. That means a computer desk that’s at the right height, and the right storage and filing solutions to help you keep everything in order. We know from office furniture experience that a poor working environment, where computer desk space is cramped and areas are poorly maintained, leads to reduced productivity. If you’re choosing to work from home, you need to be as productive as possible, which is why you need a good quality computer desk.
Whilst a computer desk is always a computer desk, if your working space is part of your family’s general living area, it will probably end up doubling as something else – a side table, perhaps, or even a coffee table. Furniture from office supply retailers won’t be able to fulfil this multi-purpose need in the same way. The style of furniture will be out of character with the rest of the furniture in your home and will be purely designed for one function.
Of course, the thing that you rarely get from flat-pack or dedicated office furniture retailers is style. Low prices and functionality are most important for these retailers, so you’re unlikely to find anything that either matches the quality of your existing furniture, or that is as sturdy and durable as solid hardwood furniture. In terms of general use, computer desks are probably the most well-used pieces of furniture, after your sofa and your bed, so it’s important to make sure that you choose something that’s well-made from high quality solid hardwood and that has the strength to stand up to daily use.
For a range of traditional and contemporary computer desks, take a look at our office furniture. We only stock furniture that is made using 100% solid hardwood. All drawers in our computer desks are constructed using dovetail joints.
