One thing worth noting is that you should consider ordering ergonomic desks for your employees or for yourself. Ergonomic equipment is designed to put the least possible stress on the body, preventing or reducing long term overuse injuries. One feature common with ergonomic desks is a slide-out drawer underneath the desk where a computer keyboard can be stored. This drawer can be adjusted to different heights and angles for comfort, and this feature provides extra space on the desk since you will store the keyboard underneath. You can find much more information on ergonomic office equipment through a little research. Regardless of which type of desk you choose to purchase, it is always wise to find a comparable model to try out in person so you can get an idea of how comfortable the desk will be and what issues may arise before you make a purchase. You do not want to end up with office desks that are not useful because they are too short to accommodate a tall person's long legs or are too small to fit a computer and a printer at the same time. Most importantly, you want your desks to be functional.
The materials used for your desks are largely a personal choice, influenced by the look you wish to achieve. Melamine faced chipboard (MFC) is the most common material used and is usually available in a wide range of wood effect finishes and some basic colours. Laminate desks finishes are usually slightly more expensive and offer some additional colour choices. Solid wood desks tend to be very expensive and are usually reserved for executive offices. A cheaper alternative is a wood veneer desk - a cheaper material, such as chipboard, with a very thin layer of real wood applied. An important indication of quality is the thickness of the desk top. Thickness can vary between 18mm and 30mm depending on the quality of the desk. This can determine the rigidity of the desk and 25mm minimum is recommended unless the office desk has a strong under-frame.
Flat Top Desks: these are the most popular type of desk being the most versatile, particularly when a large work space is required for paperwork and/or computer equipment. Various sizes are available from the smallest 36" (91cm) width up to larger workspaces of 72" (183cm) or greater. The depth of the desk is important - the narrower the desk the closer the working material is to the user - a deeper desk allows more storage but some of it may be out of arms reach.
If you are ordering desks for an entire office, you should consider the fact that the needs for each desk may differ depending on the job of the employee and the function of the desk. Do not assume that placing a bulk order for a number of the same desks will be a wise purchase for your office. Consider each employee's position and recognize that some may need different desks than others. One employee may work primarily with paper files and will need a desk with drawers and storage space for folders and supplies, while another may only need enough space for a computer. Thinking about these things beforehand will save you the expense and stress of ending up with a useless desk and needing to order another.
