For those people that work in an office, the desk is one of the most important items of furniture. A desk is not just a place to house a computer and cup of coffee, but it is a place where many office workers spend a large proportion of their lives. For this reason, an office desk has to combine practicality and comfort, to enable somebody to work productively and not feel impinged by their workstation.
There are so many things to think about when shopping for office desks, such as size, shape, style, whether it needs drawers, access for cables, as well as ensuring that it is in keeping with the general office aesthetics. For this reason, speaking to an expert such as one of Margolis Furniture's highly experienced account managers is recommended to ensure you make the right decision when shopping for office desks.
Office desks come in a bewildering number of styles and designs, and for good reason. People do all sorts of different jobs at their desk, from operating a computer and filling in paperwork, to speaking on the telephone, creating designs and even speaking to clients. For this reason, a desk needs to suit the relevant tasks, which means finding the right desks to suit your office means taking into account the types of work people will do at them.
Furthermore, office desks may also need to accommodate paperwork, personal belongings and other office equipment, so you need to decide whether the desk needs drawers or just ample space to include paperwork trays.
Size and space
The size of desk is important to get right. Most modern offices are full of computers, telephones and other desktop technology that the office desk needs to accommodate. Furthermore, an office desk may also need additional space to allow somebody to fill out paperwork and do other tasks. Of course, having a desk that is too big brings its own problems. Not having things close at hand can become frustrating for people, so an office desk should be just the right size, but getting it right is not easy.
One of the governing factors in the size of office desk is the amount of space in the office. It is all well and good choosing large desks that can accommodate people's computers and provide plenty of space to work, but if you have to install quite a number of these desks into a small space, you could end up creating problems.
At Margolis Furniture, we offer an office planning service, which can help you select the right office desk for the space available. Furthermore, we can advise as to alternative solutions that can save office space, and yet provide enough desk room to be suitable for the demands of the job.
Desk design varies tremendously, but the right design can make all the difference in the compromise between space and size. An angled desk in the corner of an office, for instance, takes up less room than a straight desk, and yet can provide the same amount of space. While a compact desk with the right design can maximise available space and not create problems when working.
Office desks have also to look good too and be in keeping with the general office aesthetic. At Margolis Furniture, we have a huge range of office desk designs to suit almost any office, big or small. All our desks maximise practicality while also provide a spacious work area that provides a comfortable and practical workstation.
Because office desks are as individual as any office, sometimes the best solution is to opt for bespoke desk system. By choosing desks, drawers, and side tables that can be pieced together, you can create your own bespoke desk system that is both in keeping with the office aesthetic as well as fitting in with the plan of the office.
People can work face-to-face, side-by-side, or in individual booths by using partition systems. Speak to one of Margolis Furniture's expert advisors who will be able to assist you in creating teams, sections and office departments by utilising different desk systems.
The demands of an office manager can quite often differ to those of the office worker, and at Margolis Furniture we have a large selection of manger's and executive desks to suit the specific needs of department heads. These desks can range from the modern contemporary designs, such as glass desks, to the classic and elegant manger's desk that is designed to exude status and impress clients.
For the home office, a desk system often has to incorporate an entire office at your fingertips. At Margolis Furniture, you'll find individual desk systems that provide an easy to work environment for the home office worker that provides enough desk space even for areas with limited room.
