Choosing a professional office desk can be a time-consuming experience. With so many designs and models on the market today, making the right choice can feel daunting. To make it easier, our team of industry experts have put together a guide to help you identify the best work desk for you.

Room Space

First, you need to consider the amount of space you have for a desk. Whether this is your home office or an entire floor for staff, the area and space needed between other furniture needs careful consideration.

Most desks come in a standard size, with a single workstation typically between 100cm and 140cm wide and 80cm deep. Measure the area and you’ll be able to identify the right desk or desks for your space.

Desk Shape

Office desks today come in all shapes, including kidney, crescent/L-shaped, and the standard rectangle. Each serves their own purpose, but choosing between them comes down to your available space and how much surface space you need to work on.

Rectangular desks are the most popular as they fit in most areas and provide a good amount of space for laptops, screens, papers and other accessories. Kidney shaped desks are a popular choice for inclusivity, as they’re easier to navigate around and can be more comfortable. 


This is where your personal taste comes in. There is a wide range of desk models on the market today, from stylish, executive desks such as the Metar Executive Desk to the practical Elite desks

If matching your space’s decor is important to you, then find a desk that comes in a range of finishes. A good example of this is the Herman Miller Abak AE Desk, which has 14 melamine finishes to choose from.

Desk Accessories

Height adjustable or sit-stand desks, connecting desks, cable management, shelving, screens and more; if you need extras on your desk, make sure the one you choose has everything you need. Our selection of desk accessories ranges from monitor arms to desk bikes, so take a look at our extensive range while you make a decision on your final desk requirements.

Your Budget

A good desk that works for you and lasts for years is an investment. If you’re looking for something simple to fulfil a basic purpose, then you’ll pay less than if you want a large, executive piece to work from. Many office furniture suppliers offer discounts on bulk orders, as we do, which is also something to bear in mind if you’re buying for an entire floor.
