Computer Desks

A computer desk provides a solid workspace, whether at home or in the office. They come in several sizes and configurations to fit nearly any space, and with many features designed to improve organization and productivity. Shoppers at Staples can find a solution from top brands including Altra, Sauder and Forest Designs.

Wide Range of Sizes and Styles Available for Any Space
Computer desks come in many sizes ranging from compact carts with wheels to expansive U-shaped models that offer lots of workspace. Smaller units work well in dorm rooms or in a nook area where little floor space is available. Executive models work well in a professional office while corner computer desks offer a combination of functionality and space-saving capability, making them a versatile option for both the home and workplace.

Many desks are made from a combination of materials including wood, glass and metal. Those with metal frames often have a wood or glass top, which adds a look of elegance to the unit. Industrial desks are typically constructed of steel, meant to stand up to constant use in heavy-duty settings such as in a newspaper pressroom or in a warehouse.

Multiple Features for Organization and Productivity
Most desks combine several features to increase efficiency. A slide-out keyboard tray saves desktop space while also promoting a proper seating position. It slides out to the user, eliminating the need to bend or hunch over the workspace to type or navigate. Drawers help organize office supplies such as notepads, folders and important documents. Utility drawers let you keep writing utensils close by, especially if there's not much surface area available.

Open shelves and hutches increase storage capability and offer room for binders, photo frames and peripheral devices such as a printer or fax machine. Cabinets help keep supplies and important papers secured, and locks ensure that sensitive contents are only available to authorized persons with a key. Those with caster wheels make it easy to transport the workstation between rooms, which comes in particularly useful for hospitality settings. Some have a collapsible frame that folds flat when not in use for convenient storage purposes.

Do Computer Desks Come Assembled?
While many models do come assembled, some small computer desks may require assembly. Larger units, such as executive and industrial models are often delivered right to the office, ready to use. Computer carts, L- and U-shaped models come with the necessary hardware and sometimes even the tools to build them.

What are Some Considerations for Choosing a Desk?
Not every space can accommodate larger desks, so it's important to measure the area where you plan to put the unit. Consider the type of environment you're placing the desk into. Labor sites require a strong model that can withstand the environment, while those in a dorm room can suffice with a smaller model made with engineered wood or metal. Lastly, consider its use and how you plan to use the surface area in terms of file racks, bins and other organizational supplies.
