”My desk is like a ‘U’, so I have my computer and lots of dictionaries because I write in Spanish and I live in English.” (Isabel Allende)
Desks are part of our daily life, from school benches to office workstations. At home, the desk is indispensable for your children’s room and for home office activities. Finding the right desk can be difficult because they have to comply with ergonomic standards but even with your personal taste. On Archiproducts you can find which model suits you best!
The first thing to take in to account is its shape. rectangular writing desks
have a linear workspace which can be large or small and can be placed in whichever corner of the room. Corner writing desks
are functional and ideal to put a desktop computer on them. They come with drawers and shelves and they offer enough space for peripherals and in small studios they let you optimize space using the corner in your room. A good compromise is the extractable working space that lets you save space when not needed. Height adjustable writing desks
represent a valid and unexpensive solution when people of different heights have to use the desk and they also follow childrens’ growth.
Keep an eye on ergonomy! The minimum size for a rectangular desk is 120x60x71-74 cm. More, to grant optimal working conditions, you need to put the desk in a well lit room and use ergonomic armchairs that facilitate movement and let your back relax when you’re sitting. A swiveling and directable desk lamp with the right light is indispensable when you’re at the desk in the evening. Choose a working surface with pale and opaque colors to avoid annoying reflections.
Desks come in different materials starting from classic solid wood to modern glass up to high tech plastic that endows your children’s room with bright and vivid colors.
