Whether you work in an office or from home, you likely spend many hours behind a desk. To maximize your comfort and efficiency, you need this piece of furniture to be expertly designed to improve your work and quality of life. For these reasons, you should upgrade to a custom office desk. Here are just some of the benefits of doing so.
Why Purchase a Custom Office Desk?
1. Customizable Storage
When you purchase any old desk, you must make do with the available storage options. This can often mean organizing in a way that doesn’t benefit your workflow, or having to purchase extra organizers or dividers. A custom office desk is built to your specifications, which means you can design the shelves, drawers, and cubbies around your needs. It can also be built into your specific office space. If you have an oddly angled corner or window niche, for instance, you can add a custom-fit floating wooden desk to take advantage of the area.
2. Improved Ergonomics
Staying at your desk to get work done is difficult when it doesn’t fit your size. Tall individuals can experience leg cramping if the desk is too short, or may need to slouch uncomfortably. Conversely, shorter individuals might have to raise their chairs, which can bring their feet off the ground and put extra pressure on their knees. Improper desk and chair height can also contribute to carpal tunnel. Prevent this discomfort and fatigue by having your desk built around your natural sitting position. Custom-designed standing desks can also improve your health. You’ll be able to work for longer periods of time and have fewer issues related to poor ergonomics.
3. Beauty & Durability
Mass-manufactured plastic or laminate desks aren’t always made to last. A well-made wooden desk is resilient and can last for generations with minimum required maintenance. Simply use coasters, dust it from time to time, and polish it occasionally to maintain the natural luster of your workspace. A stylish, sturdy, and well-maintained custom office desk will improve your office’s aesthetics, make the room more pleasant, and impress your clients.
