Office desks include styles and features suited to a professional, office environment. Learn more about office desk construction, types, features, and care.
There are several factors to consider when selecting an office desk that will best complement how you work and your work space. The following guide walks you through the different types and features of office desks to help you stay organized and is beneficial to your work performance.
An L-shape desk offers plenty of surface area for equipment and multitasking. Well-suited for corners and large areas, an L-shape desk is connected by aperpendicular wing, referred to as a “bridge” or “return”, which determines the perspective while sitting at a desk. Determine the appropriate configuration according to choose your comfort when selecting a “right return” or “left return”.
A U-shape desk carries a similar format to the L-shape desk. In this case, a bridge connects two desks forming a “U”-shape. The layout of the space will determine the configuration a U-shape desk. If sitting at the main desk and the bridge is at your left, it is a “left bridge” U-shape desk; if the bridge is at your right, it is a “right bridge” U-shape desk. A U-shape desk is well-suited for large areas and offers ample space for supplies and equipment.
An open desk plan offers countless ways to configure your space, from adjacent to a wall, to the center of a room. Unlike L-shape and U-shape desks, open desk plans typically comprise only one principal desk and no accompanying furniture pieces. Ranging in various sizes, open desks can refer to computer desks, executive desks, credenza desks, secretary desks, laptop stands, and conference tables. (See “Office Desk Types” to learn more on these styles.)
Wood office desks offer an attractive, natural look that comes in a variety of colors and finishes. Genuine wood desks are typically more expensive, and are more prone to signs of wear from rigorous daily use.
Metal constructed office desks offer solid construction that is ideal for desks that will be subjected to long-term heavy use of high-traffic areas. Metal desks offer sleek appearance.
A plastic finish offers many benefits including affordability and durability. While plastic constructed office desks may not offer the same aesthetic value of wood or metal, plastic office frames come in a wide variety of colors to complement any aesthetic. Be sure to seek a quality plastic, or thick, high pressure laminate to ensure your office desks will withstand daily use.
Finding the appropriate desk that will suit both your functional needs, and the size of your space can prove daunting. Your office desk needs to fit the work area while allowing enough leftover space to comfortably maneuver around. The following guidelines can help:
The type of office desk you select will depend on the style and function you set for your office space. There are many different types of office desks to select from which offer unique benefits:
A computer office desk is designed to improve the efficiency of an office, offering room and workspace to hold computers, various hardware, and file storage. A computer desk is the standard option in selecting an office desk, and comes in many styles, colors, and sizes.
Executive desks convey a professional image that is appropriate to upper management. A larger scale means executive desks are designed to hold even more supplies and equipment than standard sized computer desks.
A conference desk helps to gather a group of people to hold meetings and assemble a group of people for a conference. Much like an executive desk, conference desks are large in scale with a stately appearance. Conference desks are occasional tables, and are rarely used for everyday use.
Also known as a writing desk, bureau, or secretaire, secretary desks are petite-sized desks that typically come in two heights: low and high. Because of their smaller profile, traditionally secretary desks have been placed at corners of rooms (but can be placed just about anywhere). Most models entail lower drawers, a pull-out writing surface, and storage overhead to contain various supplies.
A credenza desk is traditionally designated to be paired with a primary or L-shape desk as a secondary work surface. They serve as the perfect side table and often contain a stack of shelves, small drawers, or other nooks to contain storage.
Laptop stands, or vertical risers, are the smallest version of office desks that are specifically used to hold a laptop. Best used in casual environments, laptop stands are modified end tables that can be used by the sides of seating for a convenient surface area to work.
File cabinets are an enclosure of drawers that helps organize extra paperwork. The two most common types of file cabinets are vertical files and lateral files. File cabinets will frequently fit under desks to keep files close at hand.
A feature common to secretary desks, a roll top refers to a cylindrical covering that can be pulled over a tabletop surface to help cover shelves, nooks, and other compartments on a desk.
Add extra storage on top of desks and credenzas.
A pull-out panel gives you an extra work surface for an added area that can be conveniently used for extra tasks.
Specially designed holes installed at the back of desks allow you to organize and conceal cable wires to keep getting wires tangled across workspaces for effective wire management.
Prevent water rings and spills by using coasters. Wipe away any spilled liquid as soon as possible with a dry soft cloth. Maintaining a consistent humidity level (ideally 50%) will prevent wood from warping.

If you have a rolling chair, you might want to try out a chair mat. These mats can reduce back stress from rolling, protect your floor from scuffs and spills, and reduce static electricity that can damage electrical equipment. Even if your floor is protected by a carpet, you may still want a chair mat – carpets make it difficult to roll your chair, increasing your chance of back pain from the strain of rolling. A chair mat will make it far easier to roll and subsequently reduces back pain.Shop Chair Mats
Though some large, multi-piece, ornate executive desks can cost between $1,000 and $10,000, a more standard home desk typically costs between $150 and $700, with a wide variety of options on the lower side of that range. If you’re looking for a piece that won’t break the bank, there are certainly lower-cost options in the style you want.

When selecting an office desk, the most important consideration is ensuring the desk meets your specific needs so you can perform your job to the best of your ability. Before perusing office desk options, make a prioritized checklist of what you require to work effectively. This should include how you work and what you need to work. Once you determine these important factors, you will have a better idea of what to look for in an office desk. Then, you can move on to other considerations, such as the office space available to you, your budget, and the image you are trying to portray or aesthetics you desire in a desk.
How you Work: Do you spend a lot of time doing paperwork, drafting or drawing plans, or typing on a computer? Do you often hold meetings in your office or have frequent visitors?
Your Work Needs: Do you use a printer, more than one computer monitor or require extra storage for files or supplies? Do colleagues present ideas or review materials with you at your desk?
When assessing an office desk, focus on the following:
For those who travel or spend ample time out of the office, a unit with built-in, lockable drawers and file cabinets will deliver added security and privacy.
If paperwork fills your day, a keyboard tray could be a helpful space-saver, and an L-Shaped or U-Shaped desk with a bow- or table-front would offer additional surface space.
If you operate with more than one computer monitor and a printer on your desk, make more space by placing your printer on a credenza or other piece of office furniture, such as a bookshelf, or add a small table to the front of your desk.
If you hold meetings and collaborate with others in your office, or frequently shuffle papers for revisiting later, a modular desk paired with similar office furniture, might be a good choice, as would an L-Shaped or U-Shaped desk.
Many people seek surface and storage space in an office desk. If you are struggling to achieve both, take advantage of vertical space by adding an overhead storage hutch, and try to maximize your entire office space.
“Maximizing your total office space can provide more desk surface space and storage.”
Before buying a desk, measure the size of your work area. Allow 3.5-to-4-feet of space behind the desk so you have room to move, and between the desk and credenza, if using one. Allow 3 feet for door swings and 3 feet to at least one side of your desk, allowing you to walk to your desk chair comfortably. When using guest chairs, allow for 3 feet from the front of the desk to the back of the chairs.
If you have limited space, a smaller desk such as a computer desk can come equipped with pull out work surfaces, drawers, hutches or shelves. A corner desk is another option for small spaces, as well as home offices as many times spare bedrooms containing multiple doors or windows are converted to offices. Make sure windows and doors are unobstructed when positioning your desk and keep in mind that window blinds can help with unwanted natural light.
“Pairing your office desk with the space available offers a more efficient, productive work environment.”
An established budget will often determine what kind of office desk you can purchase. If your budget doesn’t allow you to get everything you want upfront, consider buying in phases – and don’t forget to budget for an office chair.
Additionally, your desk should portray the image and aesthetics you desire. Is your office environment contemporary, modern or traditional? Do you need to have an executive presence? Do you prefer a wood or laminate?
Office chair. Consider budgeting for an office chair when purchasing an office desk. Seek a chair that provides comfort and support to encourage proper posture, reduce fatigue, aid in appropriate blood flow, and minimize the risk of repetitive stress syndrome.
Furniture series. Consider viewing the entire furniture series of the office desk you are purchasing. Many desks are part of a series, and may include other beneficial items for your office such as lateral files and bookcases.
Finish and durability. Consider finishing and durability options. Laminate surfaces offer higher durability, feature a variety of finishes and styles. Wood veneer surfaces sport catalyzed lacquer finishes, which are much more durable than desks made in the past. These finishes also provide an elegant appearance.
Office setting. Consider how the desk will function within your office setting. For a home office that doubles as another room or social space, a computer desk on castors can give you the freedom to roll the desk out of the way if needed. In a corporate office, if your organization is growing or employee roles are often changing, you might want a modular desk, which can adapt to a variety of settings.
Before selecting “buy” – ask yourself these final questions.
When selecting an office desk, the most important consideration is ensuring it meets your specific needs so you can perform your job to the best of your ability.
Make a prioritized checklist of what you require to work effectively, including how you work and what you need to work.
Also look at the office space available to you, your budget, and the image you are trying to portray or aesthetics you desire in a desk.

Learn everything you need to know about choosing the perfect workspace with our expert office desk buying guide below…
Before you start shopping, it’s important to know a little bit more about the products available on the market today. Here’s a brief overview of some of the most popular types of office desk available:
These are large desks with one wider side, which was originally designed to accommodate the old-style CRT monitors. They’re still really popular and are ideal for office workers who require plenty of workspace, legroom or space for integrated storage.
However, wave desks do take up a lot of room, so if you’ve got a small office, are short on space, or don’t need all that workspace, then you may find bench desks provide a better, more space-efficient alternative.
As the name suggests, corner desks are large office desks designed to fit into the corner of a room. Depending on the layout of your office, this can be a great way to make better use of every bit of available space. They can easily be placed back to back, or in four-way clusters to create multiple workstations.
Corner desks often come in ‘L’ shapes, with both left and right-hand variations available, so if you’re planning on buying a corner desk, think about where you’re going to position it before you purchase.
Bench desks are rectangular, goal post or table style desks, which are designed to be laid out in rows. Smaller and more cost-effective than radial desks, bench desks are a versatile solution that’s perfect for modern, open-plan offices.
Over the past few years, bench desks have become increasingly popular. This is because office IT equipment has got smaller, and the move towards digital working has reduced the need for office storage.
In addition to the low cost and space-efficiency, one key benefit of bench desks is their modular nature. Bench desks are designed to work together, which means you can easily add to the system as your business grows.
Compact and minimalist, writing desks don’t take up a lot of space. They’re designed to be positioned against walls, providing a good solution for hot-desking areas and occasional workspaces. They work great in bedrooms or studies and they can feature storage solutions inbuilt.
The downside is the lack of working and storage space, which means they aren’t really suitable as main workspaces for desktop computer users or those in administrative, paper-heavy roles.
The kind of office desks that are right for your business will depend a lot on the industry you work in, and the working practices of your employees. Here are just a few of the things you need to consider when choosing the right desk options for you:
Different jobs require different sized desks. Those with admin and paper-heavy jobs need larger desks, whilst occasional computer users and those who primarily do field work can get by with much smaller spaces.
As a rule, it’s better to slightly overestimate the amount of space your employees need – this will help to provide additional flexibility and capacity for if things change. Having said that, office IT equipment is getting more space efficient, with slimmer monitors, smaller computer towers and wireless technology reducing the need for space.
The size and layout of your office will have a big impact on the kind of office desks that are right for your business.
Ultimately, it’s about striking the right balance. You need to ensure that everyone has enough desk and storage space to work effectively, whilst minimising wasted space.
This may mean splitting up the office space and investing in several different types and size of desk, to cater for all your different employee roles. Mixing desktop sizes and shapes, but using the same legs and colours is not uncommon in larger offices.
Office desks have a big impact on the overall working environment, and you can use them to define the feel of your business.
For traditional, professional businesses with multiple departments and individual offices or cubicles, having larger, separate wave desks, pedestal desks, corner desks and self-contained workstations will help to define each room.
In more contemporary, creative and open plan offices, modular bench desk systems can be perfect. They work particularly well for businesses looking to create occasional spaces for flexible group working, hot-desking and for collaborative spaces.
Your office furniture is a direct reflection on your business. When choosing office desks, it’s important to pick designs that suit your business in terms of colour, style and brand. With modern styles and materials available for furniture and accessories in an office, it is easier than ever to make a first impression to visitors and improve employee satisfaction.
For example, a contemporary design agency will probably want to achieve a different look and feel to a more traditional accountancy or law firm. With that in mind, these are the 2 main considerations when it comes to aesthetics in the office:
Office desks come in a selection of different materials and finishes, in colours and styles to suit every business. These include everything high-end solid wood finishes, through to the more cost-effective MFC printed/coloured wood tones, contemporary whites, or even vibrant statement colours.
Picking quality, matching furniture that fits in with the style and feel of your business will help to create the right working environment, and create the right impression with clients.
Whilst it’s important to choose furniture that fits in with your brand, there’s a lot of evidence that injecting some bright colours into your workspace can provide a significant boost to workplace harmony and productivity.
At Bluespot, our Kaleidoscope office furniture range features a selection of high-quality, affordable office desks, finished in a range of vibrant colours to suit your business.
Whilst cloud storage and the shift towards digital technology has slightly reduced the need for office storage – the paperless office is still a pipe-dream for most businesses.
Providing each employee with enough space for all their files, papers and office stationery will provide real benefits in terms of productivity and office organisation.
Choosing desks with built-in pedestal drawer storage can be is a great, space-efficient solution for businesses wanting to free up space in the office.
When purchasing office desks, you’ll want to have a firm eye on the future of your business.
As your business grows and you employ more staff members, you’ll need more desks for them to work at. Planning for this when you buy your office furniture can help to reduce costs in the long run.
Choosing a flexible, modular system, like one using bench desks will make it much easier to extend and expand your office as your business grows.
Keeping a keen eye on costs is essential for any business, but it’s important to think office desks in terms of their long-term, lifetime value. Think about the function of a desk and the impact it will have on productivity, and make sure you invest in the right, high-quality pieces, the first time around.
Whilst it’s tempting to skimp on office furniture and buy the cheapest desks you can find, this is likely to be a false economy. When it comes to office desks, you get what you pay for, and buying higher-quality pieces can pay dividends in terms of the lifespan, durability and appearance.
Prices for office desks vary from manufacturer to manufacturer. For high-quality office desks from Bluespot Furniture, you can expect to pay from under £100, right up to around £500, depending on the specification and storage features of the model you choose.
