Choosing the size and shape of your desk should be a consideration of personal style - how do you want your office to look - with a practical consideration of the space available - how many desks do I need in the office? If you are constricted by space, many compact design office desks are widely available. Rectangular bench desks offer an excellent space-saving design coupled with shared structural components to reduce costs. Call centre pods, usually in circular clusters of between four and eight desks are another compact, space-saving option. If you have more space, ergonomic shaped desks such as single wave, double wave and radial - or crescent - desks provide a stylish office look with plenty of desk area. Desk sizes usually vary between 600mm to 1000mm deep and are available in widths between 800mm and 2000mm. If standard under desk pedestal drawers are to be used, 1400mm wide desks are the minimum I would recommend to provide adequate leg room. If narrow pedestals are to be used, 1200mm wide desks are the minimum width I would recommend.
Modern business organizations are becoming aware of the benefits of an open plan office versus a traditional departmental office layout. As modern building techniques progress, large open office spaces, without the restrictions of internal structural walls and support pillars are rapidly becoming a common sight. An open office space is like a blank canvass to an interior designer, who has the freedom to make the best of the space available.
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.
