Modern Computer Desks

Whether your office has modern decor or you want a simple desk with a streamlined appearance, Staples has the modern desk you need. With computer desks, modern writing desks and other options, you have a number of styles to choose from.

Choosing the Right Office Desk
The modern office desk has many designs, colors and attributes. Some are tall, letting you stand while you work, while others have a large surface to support large desktop computers or work materials. Office desks with casters roll easily when you need to move them, and minimalist desks take up little space with simple, clean designs. The right office desk fits the decor of the office while giving you the space you need.

Benefits of a Modern Office Desk
Modern desks have features like computer monitor stands and extra storage. Desks come in various colors, from maple, pine or walnut to black or white, and some even have tempered glass tops. Modern desks have the advantage of added keyboard drawers, wire organization holes where plugs pass through the desk to reach outlets, and spaces for charging stations.

What Types of Desks Are There?
Standing desks give you space to work while standing without an office chair. Computer desks have keyboard trays and spaces for desktop towers. Modern writing desks have flat surfaces with no other hutches or compartments, giving them a sleek design that doesn't draw attention or take up too much space. Ergonomic desks keep your elbows at a 90-degree angle, reducing strain, which helps keep you productive during the day.

How Tall Should a Desk Be?
Most desks should be between 29 and 30 inches tall to allow a chair to fit underneath and a person to sit comfortably. Desks for standing are higher, with many adjusting in height to meet the needs of those who are taller or shorter. To get the right height for your desk, first purchase the chair you want. The desk should stand tall enough that you have a forearm-to-upper-arm angle of 70 to 135 degrees. This angle keeps your neck, shoulders and back aligned, so you have less strain on the neck and a lower likelihood of headaches or back pain.

What Is a Standing Desk?
A standing desk provides a work space for people who want to work standing up. The desks adjust, allowing the desk to go up or down depending on the height of the user. The ability to adjust the desk also means it functions as a normal office desk for sitting and working. A standing desk has many health benefits, including negating the effects of sitting too often. Standing burns more calories and has been shown to reduce back pain, which sometimes results from sitting in a poor postural stance. Sitting at a traditional desk could result in sticking the head and neck out, which pulls the spine out of alignment. A standing desk does not allow for this, instead making the user stand straight to use the desk correctly.
