Computer desks and office desks have been used interchangeably for years. In many cases, what someone may be calling a computer desk is actually just a plain office desk. To tell the difference, you have to look at the features of both. The first is size. Although there is no standard size, you will find that most office desks are larger in surface area than computer desks. This space, on a desk, comes in the form of partitions. The main surface, which is smaller than that of an office desk, holds just the computer monitor. The keyboard and the hard drive are held in shelves which are little compartments within the desk.

They have ports and they are large. These are what are called executive desks and the distinguishing feature that they have is that they dont have compartmentalized spaces beneath. They will have one large, flat surface that takes everything - the screen, the keyboard, the hard drive and everything else. Executive desks are mostly used in the most senior offices. The rest - middle and lower management - use computer desks that are smaller.

The introduction of computers to the whole world was indeed remarkable. It made other scientists curios about the capacity of this kind of machine. During that time this type of machine was still unheard of. However it already managed to fuel the competition for its development. Discoveries were made left and right. It was not at the same country or at the same time but all of these discoveries led to the development of computers. It was not long that home desk computers were then available. Although at first, only rich people can own them. It was still quite expensive during those times since they used gold as one of the materials in creating computers. Gold was a great conductor of electricity but it was also a bit expensive. Its need for power and heat dissipation was lower than the creation of copper. The computer consumes less energy and as a result the user can save on his or her electric bill. Later, they found silicon and other intrinsic materials that are abundant in nature as a replacement for gold in some of its parts. This made the production cost of the computer lower, making it affordable to the market.

They must be subtle so as not to stand out within the offices confines. Most office desks are painted in subtle colors such as grey, black, blue, and white. However, modern offices have been known to experiment with their office furniture in both pattern and color, and hence newer office desks are much different than their earlier counterparts. Desks used in offices must be wide enough to hold several files and sometimes a computer. They must also provide lots of leg room for the person to sit comfortably. Office desks are made to be highly ergonomic as people sit at them for hours on end. Office desks may contain a few drawers which may have locking provisions. There are also hutches that can be affixed to the wall over the office desk. Hutches become very convenient to place important files and books of reference.

A computer desk with all its accompanying electrical cords, and paraphernalia, can take up a lot of wall space which is in short supply. One really good solution to this problem is to use a computer corner desk. Instead of occupying a lot of space along a wall, this corner computer desk simply fits into a corner of the room, and takes up a lot less room. You may be quite amazed at how much more space you have when you install a corner desk. An additional benefit is that the birds nest of electrical cords can now be hidden behind the computer desk in the corner of the room. In other words the desk is very functional and neat.

The modern designs for this desk generally have a frame constructed of metal with a top surface area. This simple design does not usually include any type of storage space, but is made to be very lightweight for moving around easily. You could select a larger style desk that includes the traditional type of side drawers as storage. The traditional student style is also often used as an office desk for the home. It can be constructed of wood or metal and generally does not have an enclosed back area. Some styles may also have shelving underneath a top drawer on the side. All of the various desk items can be found at most furniture stores as well as some department stores. Choosing the right desk will not only create a space where you can be organized, but it will add some décor to the room it is in. If you enjoy collecting antique furniture items, you might find a few original desks in the antique style as well.

As they set it down I know for sure that this was the perfect place for the roll top desk. There was just something that told me that this desk belonged in this room. I awake every morning and still to this day get excited to go to my antique roll top desk to get some work done. The sun shines through the large window and gives enough brilliant light to see without turning on any lights. This is my new favorite room, my get away. When I need to concentrate and get some work done I just take a seat in my roll top desk. It is the best find I have ever found. I still remember the day that I found the desk and will remember it every time I sit down in front of it.

There are L-shaped computer desks which are best suited for offices or homes that have enough space to place the desk against a wall or in a corner. This type of desk is most commonly found in corporate cubicles. The L-shape design provides the user with a large surface are to work on and increased storage capacity. Another type of desk available is a rolling computer desk or also known as a laptop caddy. With the increasing number of people who are switching out their bulky personal computers for smaller and sleeker laptops, the need for a large computer desk often diminishes, especially if it will only be used for a few hours a day at home. They save a considerable amount of space and are highly portable allowing for use anywhere in the house or office. They are small enough to be stored when not in use yet large enough to fit just about any size laptop. Rolling desks are also a great, affordable option for children that only need a desk for a few hours a day to complete their homework on.

While it had the simple and large workspace that sat upon two stacks of drawers, it also featured an additional piece. This piece was fixed to the top and back of the work surface and contained shelves, storage compartments, nooks and drawers - all for storage. Many likened this extra piece to the Carlton house desk or the Bureau a gradin. The piece de resistance of the roll top desk however, was the slatted wooden cover that rolled or slid down through slots that had been carved into the desks raised sides. The slatted rolling top led people to compare it to the cylinder desks that were popular in the eighteenth century, though it is actually related to the tambour desk - a desk that also featured a closure piece of wooden slats. The difference was that while the tambour desk featured slats that retracted to the sides of the desk the roll top desks slats rolled up into the top of the desk itself.

With the trend for people to work from home supplementing an increasing number of people running home internet businesses, home office furniture is becoming more of a necessity than a luxury. However, many people are not prepared to use the cheap type of flat-pack furniture that was once the norm for home offices, and are seeking a higher quality, just like the rest of the furniture in their home. Style, quality, durability and functionality are all important aspects of the modern home desk and office chair, and home offices are no longer fitted with hideaway furniture that is brought out only for work. Now, the office is an integral part of the home, and home office furniture is as much a necessity as living room and dining room furniture. For many homes, the office desk is more than just four legs screwed into a plywood top. It is made by craftsmen and often part of a collection that includes the computer desk and filing cabinets, credenzas and bureaus. Lets have a look at some examples of home office desks and chairs, and how they differ from the old idea of home office furniture.

There are bare desks which are mainly used for keeping the material with which the teacher writes on the board. There is place to keep just enough books on them. Computer desks can be small or large in size depending on what they can contain. Some computer desks are huge enough to contain entire workstations. Computer desks are often affixed in the corner of the home. They contain several shelves to place the keyboard and mouse and even CD racks and cases. Desks are often complemented by hutches, which are cupboards that can be fixed on the wall where the desk is inclined. Hutches are mainly used for storage. Many desks themselves contain drawers and cabinets, which can be locked. Wood is the most popular material for making desks. Wood blends beautifully in homes and complements both ancient and modern decor. Plastic and metal desks are also available, but they are not as good looking as wooden desks.

In my home office I own a computer with a tower which fits perfectly on a surface which is just above the surface of the ground at my feet. There is another pullout surface that is made for the keyboard which is at the perfect height and also works well if you are only using a laptop computer. The computer desk that I own also has a retractable table which will allow you to extend your working surfaces. This is perfect for my home office setup as I can place my work laptop on the retractable arm and use my personal computer as well. When you dont need to use the retractable surface it can just be pushed back into the computer table so that it takes up less room in the office. It is a feature I would recommend highly if you are looking for a computer desk for your office.
