The first thing you have to consider is what you need out of your workspace, will you need a large desk with plenty of worktop space for a desktop and keyboard or will a petite desk with enough room for a laptop and stationary be suitable enough for you?
Think about storage options too... if you have files and paperwork to store then consider buying a desk with enough drawers to keep these things neatly put away. Corner desks can also be great options for those that need to keep a printer, label makers and stationery all in one place for easy access. And with the extra space you can always fill it with personal homely touches such as plants, photo frames and lamps.
One of the most important factors that you will also need to consider when choosing your desk is of cause what style you want to go for. Think about what theme and colour scheme you want in your workspace and incorporate the style of desk with other furnishings in your home so that it all ties together.
It’s important that you love the space that you will be working in as it will boost your motivation to step into that space and increases your interest level to work, being comfortable and happy in your workspace will also help to settle any anxiety that you may feel about working and therefore will help maintain a healthy mindset.
