Deciding what the main task that will be performed at the desk is, and how long a person will be spending in the area each day is important to selecting the desk that is needed. A person who will not be typing on a computer for much of their day will need a desk that is a different height than an individual who will spend their entire day typing on their computer.
The desk you choose for your home office space is probably going to be the biggest piece of furniture in your entire home office. You may need your desk to perform a variety of tasks, so it is important that you choose it carefully. Most people don't put very much thought into the selection of their office desk. In fact, you may be tempted yourself to head out to the nearest store and purchase the first desk that you see.Before you do that put some thought into what you need from your new desk.
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.
Modern desks reflect contemporary styles. Some are little more than writing surfaces with, perhaps, one drawer for the storage of writing materials. Others contain a number of drawers (sometimes accommodating hanging files), platforms designed to support typewriters or computer keyboards, and other elements that reflect modern work and home needs.
