Looking at getting a new work desk? There is more to office desks in NZ than meets the eye. Our range is comprehensive, so we’ll have a desk that suits your office layout, décor and budget. We’ll happily guide you through our selection and point you towards something that will perfectly fit in with your requirements. In the meantime, here are just a few things to keep in mind while you’re searching:Ergonomics
As we become more aware of the importance of good posture, particularly if we’re sitting at our desks for hours, ergonomics becomes more than just a buzzword. Look for a desk that aligns with your height, and gives you plenty of room underneath. Ensure your screen sits about 50 centimetres and at a slightly downward angle from your line of sight. Height adjustable desks will let you alternate between standing or sitting or you could invest in a deskalator that sits on top of your desk and allows you to change posture during the day.
Consider how much you need to place on top of the desk. Screens? Lighting? Keyboard? Trays? Cluttered desktops kill productivity and make for an uncomfortable experience while you’re working. Our desks range from 1200mm in length to 1800mm, so you can find a desk that works for you and can contain all the items you like working with and having within easy reach.
If you don’t have the luxury of having a filing cabinet, shelving and cupboards nearby, you’ll want to look for desks with drawers for storage. Lockable drawers will be ideal for storing confidential information and more sensitive material.
How much room do you have and how many desks are you buying? If you have a smaller space, our corner desks and L-shaped desks might help you make the most of the room you have in your office. Or, shared desks might be a great way to create flexible workstations, and promote collaboration if you’re buying for a team of people.
While you’re in the market for a desk, why not look at office chairs as well? If you are buying a desk for ergonomic reasons, then a chair is just as important in promoting the correct posture.
