Spread the love

We are living in difficult times. The world is ‘closed’ and people have no other choice than to work from home. Thanks to the 100 nanometers tall virus.

Whether you own a home business or work outside & are just locked in the home, you need a good desk where you can put your files, computer or books.

When working from home, you need to invest in a solid wood computer desk with keyboard trays for your home office.

Right??

You now are the owner of a business and you need to invest in a desk.

But the question is…….which desk to spend money on? What are the features of a good desk for the home office?

Some people will not mind sitting on a sofa leaning forward on a laptop. Why worry about a special desk? Isn’t so?

Sounds logical but this approach will backfire in the long-run because it’s so not good for your back and hips to sit without a support and bear the pressure as the result of leaning forward.

People who make and invest in an ergonomic chair are not fools, are they? Leaning forward has negative effects on your shoulders and arms in the long run.

It is so important to sit on a supportive chair with some features in it to fully support your back.

You need a good chair and a good desk.

Okay, but why a special desk for a computer keyboard?

Do you wish to put the keyboard on your laps or anywhere at the monitor’s level? If yes, then you will hurt your wrist in the long-run. Such an approach will also slow down your writing.

Features of a good home office Desk:

Okay, I understand everything but how high and wide should a desk be?

When spending money on a table look for these features.

Table height:

The Minimum height (how tall is the desk) needs to be 30” or76.2cms

Adequate space to put thighs:

There has to be an area where you can put your legs and don’t have to lean forward.

The good thing about this desk is it being resistible to scratches. It has a powder-coated finish enough against scratches.
