A home office can have a touch of class. It should reflect your style and character and yet serve its functions well. Even with a small budget and a lot of creativity you can set up a home office that looks inviting, is professional, and reduces stress.
When selecting a desk for the home office you must consider the dynamics of your home interiors. Is it contemporary, classic, strong or soft? What kind of overall image does the room portray? Home office desks and other paraphernalia must be chosen such that they blend well with your home décor.
Before you set out to buy a desk, write down the size of the desk you are looking for. Then go online and surf the furniture sites for types as well as designs. Once you have short listed what you like, find out details like price, guarantees, shipping and installation costs, as well as available sizes and colors.
Desirable characteristics of a home office desk are: sufficient storage space, a flat surface to work on, space below for comfortable seating – the legs must fit with space to spare and you must have something to place your feet on; a flexible tray for a computer key board as well as space for the CPU and monitor. If the desk is designed such that you can opt for an extension then the fax machine, telephone, as well as multifunction computer printer can be placed on it.
Aim on a desk that is easy to maintain, is functional and simple in design. This element is important in case in future you find a need to expand and add more desks or office equipment.
If in doubt seek the help of a professional interior designer.
