How to choose a computer desk

After getting acquainted with the nominees, the top products of the current year, you just have to make a choice. Before you buy something, evaluate the models in question on a number of criteria – materials, how environmentally friendly they are, dimensions, whether there are shelves and add-ons. Make sure that the shape of the structure will fit into the interior.

Material

The primary indicator of quality is the materials of manufacture. Most often, PC tables are made of:

  • solid wood – an eco-friendly, aesthetic material with a protective layer of varnish that requires careful maintenance (minus – expensive);
  • veneer – aesthetic products, as an alternative to the first option, they are available, without differing from solid wood (minus – cheap base material);
  • metal (steel) – the best indicator of strength, aesthetic, products that can withstand heavy loads (minus – heavy weight);
  • glass is an eco-friendly material that looks beautiful in the interior, in addition, it visually expands the space, does not deteriorate from moisture, scratches (minus injury risk);
  • plastic – a table top can be made from it, which is lightweight, presented in a wide variety of colors, easy to clean, affordable (minus – weakness before load, damage);
  • Chipboard – a budget option that imitates wood due to a special coating (minus – poor resistance to moisture, damage);
  • Fiberboard – the bottom, rear facades are usually made from such material;
  • MDF is an expensive solution, a countertop is made from it, it is more environmentally friendly than chipboard, fiberboard.

Which one to choose depends on financial capabilities and personal preferences. The more expensive the furniture, the higher the indicators of environmental friendliness, service life, aesthetics.

Environmental friendliness

Be sure to check the environmental class with the seller before buying a kit. He talks about the level of toxicity, safety for human health. The higher it is, the less glue, formaldehyde, varnishes, protective coatings are involved in the design. The best indicator is E-0.5 and E-1.

The size

Compare the dimensions of the structure declared by the manufacturer with the possibilities of the space of your room. The generally accepted sizing guidelines are as follows:

  • the average length of the countertop is from 90 to 160 cm;
  • the optimal width of the working area is from 60 to 90 cm;
  • table height for medium height – from 70 to 80 cm.

And you can calculate the ideal indicator, taking into account your height. The man takes his height, multiplies it by the constant 75, and then divides it by the average parameter of 175. The woman does the same, but divides by 162.

The presence of a superstructure and shelves

You should also choose a kit by the presence of shelves, drawers, add-ons. Shelves can be:

  • open for the location of decor items, quick access to things;
  • closed on rollers, with a door, without it;
  • built-in, where you can place acoustics and other equipment for PC;
  • stationary, autonomous under the system unit and other items;
  • retractable, usually used to accommodate the keyboard.

Pay attention to the design features of the boxes. They can be retractable or open through the door. Well, if they work silently, smoothly.

The form

An equally important indicator is the shape of the countertop. It can be of several versions:

  • rectangular (linear) – a classic, like a simple and stable desk for a student;
  • rectangular with a notch in the middle – a convenient model for long work, here you can put your elbows on the table, reducing the load on your hands;
  • corner – a triangular shape of the tabletop for installation in a corner, one elbow can be placed on it when working;
  • L-shaped – an angular design, where one side is longer than the other, it requires more space, can be used for zoning;
  • U-, T-shaped – a combined version of different modules of linear tables or a stationary design, as the best solution for collective gatherings;
  • L-, U-shaped – a model with an enlarged working area, where you can install several monitors, computers.

You can also distinguish products in shape with straight, rounded edges, corners. Safety and comfort depend on this parameter.

Which computer desk is better

Which option to choose from the named 10 nominees is a purely individual question. If appearance is important to someone, durability and quality are more priority for others. Therefore, we do not give specific recommendations, but taking into account the advantages and disadvantages, we highlight the following positions:

  • Tex Greta-4 – a small-sized model with a pull-out shelf for the keyboard, an area for the system unit, plastic thrust pads;
  • Skyland CD 1059 – comfortable design with a two-section pedestal, edges with rounded edges, support with thrust bearings;
  • Merdes Domino Nelson SR-500M – a stylish modern design with geometric lines, the presence of a superstructure, a stable pedestal;

  • TetChair ST-S-240 is a glass gaming computer table on wheels that can be easily transported indoors, all the necessary shelves and compartments for computer peripherals and equipment.

Once you get to know the top products of 2021 and the criteria for their evaluation, the task of finding the right model no longer seems so difficult. The main thing is to decide on the purpose of the kit, the location (home, office), and also indicate in advance the possibilities of your budget. Comfort, posture, vision will depend on the correct purchase.
