admin Tips & Advice

Investing time into finding the right computer desk for your work style is important. Chances are, you or your company is going to be spending a good chunk of change on your computer desk purchase and you’ll want to get it right the first time. Below we’ll run through a few things to consider when selecting your computer desk, like your budget, working style and personal preferences, which are three important considerations when looking to buy the best computer desk for you.

1.) What’s Your Budget?

This may sound like an obvious point, but you’d be surprised how many people shop around with no set budget in mind for what they need. It isn’t a bad thing, it’s just not an efficient use of your time. Before you start shopping, start thinking about what you’re looking for and identify the minimum and maximum amount you’re looking to spend (or are allowed to spend). This will help you in your search for a desk because you’ll already have an idea of what you’re looking for and can avoid getting caught in a rabbit hole of countless computer desk options while conducting your search. Here at Officescene we have big range of office furniture for any kind of budget. Let us phone you and discuss the best furniture according to your budget.



  • Make a list of your “must-haves” in a desk
  • Identify the least and most you’d spend on a desk

2.) Identify Your Work Style and Space

The first place to start, aside from setting or getting a budget, is to identify how you work and the amount of room you have to work with.

If you have extra space and have a budget on the higher end, then an l-shaped desk, an executive desk, or u-desk are all viable options. Below, we’ve broken down each desk into a little bit more detail for you:

L-shaped Desks

L-shape desks are great for those who want a little more desktop space to work on. The nice thing about l-desks, is that they can easily tuck into a corner, be placed in the middle of a room, or alongside a wall. And, if you need additional storage, you can easily add a hutch.

Executive Desks

Executive desks can come in a variety of shapes and sizes, however, the traditional executive desk is thought of as a double pedestal desk with elaborate features like reeded pilasters and intricately carved details like you see in the executive desk below.

Depending on your work style and available space, consider the following:

  • What are the dimensions of your office or workspace?
  • How much desk surface do you need?
  • Do you prefer to stand up periodically throughout the day?
  • Think about functionality fit. Would one configuration work better than another?

3.) Quality, Durability and Assembly

Have you ever heard of the phrase “you get what you pay for”? This is especially true when it comes to office furniture and selecting your desk.

  • Budget on the lower side? Consider our Jigsaw, Value and EcoScene ranges.
  • Have some room in your budget to work with? We recommend our Lola, Status and Neo Ranges.
