How do we decide on a desk suitable to our needs? There are a few things we can look at,

  1. The space available.
  2. The office layout.
  3. What duties do we want to perform.
  4. Cost.
Lets have a look at some common desking setups


Certainly the best choice if simplicity is for you. The size of your desk can vary as per your individual needs or available space. This is also a good option if you are running on a low budget.

Easy to manufacture and can be done in a knock down (kd) form to easily assemble and dismantle.


The beginning of big things. The core desk is the most versatile desk and is suited for both small and large spaces. The big advantage here is that you can add extentions on as the need arises or the space allows.



Bench desking systemsoffers itself to flexibility and the ability to satisfy an infinite variation of designs and operational combinations.


This is ideal if you have a small space available and do not need all that extra desk space. Most computer desks are fitted with castors (like the wheels on a chair) enabling you to easily move your workstation to another room or area if the need arises.



Ample workspace, especially if you tend to use a lot of files or large plans. The L-Shaped desk is ideal to seperate "your space" from the rest of the office. The disadvantage though is that the L-Shaped desk is not churn friendly. A left hand desk will always be a left hand desk and vica versa.
