Movable accessories: If a sit-stand desk isn’t a good fit for your budget right now, consider raising only a portion of the surface, either with adjustable accessories or a fixed-height desk with a height-adjustable tray. You want to have space for your mouse, keyboard and possibly a tablet," explains Freeberg. "Ergonomically, laptops are terrible for you because they’re at a set height that is generally too low and the keyboard is usually attached to the monitor, which is too far. You want it on your lap where you’re typing. Look into a tablet stand or laptop stand.
Desk, a table, frame, or case with a sloping or horizontal top particularly designed to aid writing or reading, and often containing drawers, compartments, or pigeonholes. The first desks were probably designed for ecclesiastical use. Early English desks derived from the church lectern were massive; after the development of printing, they gave way to smaller, portable chests with sloping lids—called writing boxes—some of which featured drawers and letter holes. The lids on most writing tables and also on the later writing cabinets (with drawers below and cupboards above) were hinged either at the front or back; those hinged at the front often were supported in a horizontal position by slides that could be pulled out of the framework, by hinged stays fixed inside the lid, or by a combination of both.
If you wish to attach dividing screens to your desks, ensure that a good quality screen system is compatible. Screens are usually compatible with 25mm work tops and most modern desk manufacturers offer a screen system to suit their desk ranges. Dividing screens with management rails – to mount monitors or filing trays – often require return screens for stability. The quality of an office desk and the price are undoubtedly linked and costs can vary considerably depending on the manufacturer and the quality of the product. Investing in good quality office furniture which should last for many years, makes economic sense in the long-term.
Other considerations are modesty panels and cable management. A modesty panel screens the front edge and sometimes the sides of the desk to prevent seeing underneath. Modesty panels are often included as part of the desk design but are sometimes an optional extra. Cable management allows the power and data cables for your computers and other equipment to be hidden from site in a tray under the desk or, in some office desk designs, through the leg frame itself.
