What Makes a Quality Office Desk?

A quality office desk is not only aesthetically pleasing but also offers convenience and comfort. It should be large enough to accommodate wide screens, PCs, and laptops and robustly built with sturdy legs and a durable top for longevity. At First Mats, we offer a variety of professional-looking desks designed to suit your office space needs.

What Types of Office Desks are Available at First Mats?

First Mats offers three main types of office desks: curved, rectangular, and wave-shaped. Each type comes in various sizes, frame colours, and surface finishes, providing ample choice to find a design that complements your workspace. Our selection ranges from dark to light wood veneers, plain white tops, and frames in white or silver.

Things to Consider

  • Ergonomics: Consider the design and adjustability of the office desk to ensure it promotes good posture and reduces the risk of musculoskeletal issues for employees. Look for features like adjustable height, ergonomic keyboard trays, and sufficient legroom.
  • Size and Space: Assess the available space in the office and determine the appropriate desk size that fits well without overcrowding the area. Consider the dimensions of the desk, including width, depth, and height, to ensure it aligns with the office layout.
  • Storage Options: Evaluate the desk's storage capabilities, such as drawers, shelves, or built-in filing cabinets. Choose a desk with enough storage space to keep essential documents and office supplies organised and easily accessible.
  • Cable Management: Look for desks with built-in cable management solutions, such as discreet cable holes or channels, to help keep the workspace tidy and prevent cable clutter. This feature promotes a clean and organised working environment.
  • Material and Durability: Consider the quality and durability of the desk materials. Opt for desks made from sturdy materials like solid wood or metal frames to ensure they can withstand daily use and last for years without significant wear and tear.
  • Aesthetics: Consider the overall design and style of the desk, ensuring it complements the office decor and creates a professional and cohesive look. Consider factors such as colour, finish, and any additional decorative elements.
  • Assembly and Maintenance: Consider the desk's ease of assembly and maintenance requirements. Look for desks with clear instructions and minimal effort to set up. Additionally, choose desks that are easy to clean and maintain to ensure long-term usability.
  • Price and Value for Money: Evaluate the desk's price in relation to its features, quality, and durability. Consider the long-term value the desk will provide to the organisation and weigh it against the initial investment. Avoid compromising quality for a lower price, as investing in a durable and functional desk will save money in the long run.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best size desk for a computer?

In the UK, common office desk widths are 1200mm or 1600mm, which can also be referred to as the desk's length in some contexts, especially when describing rectangular desks. The term "length" can refer to the longer side of the desk, so for a more spacious work area, a desk length of 1600mm is preferred.
