Things to check before buying a computer desk


This is the first consideration. How much are you willing to spend for a working desk? You may need to set a budget range that is suitable for you. For instance, you may set it at NZ$300-450. Also, keep in mind that quality is sometimes proportional to the cost. Here at Agile, you can get a Fixed Height Desk for under $400.

Desk Size

Are you looking for a mid-sized desk? A large computer desk with drawers? Or a simple home computer desk? The size of the computer desk will also depend on how much space you have in your office or work area. 


The concept of ergonomics is not limited to office chairs only. Desk ergonomics helps you ensure that there is enough space for your body while you are using the table. The computer desk that you choose to buy should have clearance for your legs. Usually, standard desks have a height of 29-30 inches from the floor. Additionally, it should have at least three and a half feet of space between you and the desk. Lastly, the desk needs to be at the right height for the keyboard to avoid strain and discomfort while working. 


There are three common surfaces for computer desks. Each kind has its own unique look and can contribute to the aesthetics of your workspace. You also need to choose based on what textures you are sensitive about. 


What is the main reason why you are buying a computer desk? Is it primarily for computer tasks? Then, you need a computer desk with a CPU compartment and cable holes. If you need it for paperwork or a combination of both, you may consider buying an L-shaped model. That way, you have enough space for your desktop and files.
