Personal Computer Desk Buying Guide

Buying a personal computer desk is much more than walking into a furniture shop. There are some important things to consider such as the intended use and your health. Apart from these, you may also be limited to a certain budget. Computer desks have differing designs and source materials. Choosing the right one is also a function of your personal taste.

At the end of the day, you want a desk that provides you with comfort and complements your home.

Here is a guide to get you on your way when buying a personal computer desk in Nigeria.

Consider the use of the computer desk

Will the desk be used for relaxation or for business?

Perhaps, it will also accommodate children beginning their computer journey. In this case, you will need a complementing chair that is adjustable.

You have to think through why you need a computer desk and the people who will be using it.

Have a knowledge of the extra accessories you may need

Usually, a personal computer comes with a CPU, a screen, keyboard, and mouse. Extra accessories are printers, scanners, photocopiers, and routers etc. For a graphics designer, architect or music producer, you may need to clone a PC requiring extra screens.

There are instances where the desk will be designed so another user can join you with a personal laptop. If this is the case, then you have to factor this equipment into your plan when buying a personal computer desk. You may need a drawer for safekeeping of paper and other stationery.

Think ergonomics

Ergonomics is as “an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely”. In a nutshell, ergonomics involves designing/arranging tools for more efficient, safe human use.

A personal computer desk should be designed in such a way that it doesn’t stress you – the user. I have sat on swivel chairs that gave me more discomfort than expected. Special consideration has to go into the type of seat and desk you buy.

There should be enough table surface space so that your PC's monitor is at about an arm’s length from your eyes. The base of the desk should have ample leg space.

Consider the available space

Consider the space where the desk will fit. L-shape computer desks, for example, are great for house corners as they fit perfectly. More space affords you the chance to use bigger computer desks. But if you’re short of space, you may consider a desk with a more minimalist design.

Worth considering is the availability and positioning of power sockets.

Factor in your personal style/taste

The difference in personal taste and styles also play a key role in the desk you choose. Not everyone is a fan of metal finishing.

You may be inclined to the cold touch of a metal desk. Others may like the old feel of a wooden desk. Carefully considering these personal tastes will go a long way in helping you decide the type of desk you want.
