When it comes time to select the furniture for your new office at work, then you will probably select the desk first. Since it is the focal point of the room, your executive computer desk is the most important furniture choice that you have to make. Make sure that you choose a desk that is big enough for you to do all of your work and store all of the necessary items you need to do your job. The best executive desks are large enough, have enough storage, and have innovative ways to hide the computer wires and computer components.
Do not be swayed by the ornamentation of a fancy executive desk that does not have any functionality. Even if the wood veneer and carvings are beautiful, the desk will not be a good decision if you cannot get your job done. You need to have a large work surface and plenty of drawers or slots to hold paperwork and the necessary office supplies. There is nothing more annoying than having to interrupt your workflow to go find paper clips or a stapler.
Perhaps the most important thing you should think about when choosing your executive desk is where your computer will go. Make sure that the desk has computer features like holes in the surface for wires and a cabinet or shelf for your computer tower. Computers are an essential part of everyone’s work day. You will not be able to get your job done without a computer so it is important that your desk be able to accommodate this piece of equipment.
If the desk does not have these computer features and you really want to get it anyway; then you might consider a credenza. Many professionals actually put their computer and other hardware on a second works surface known as a credenza so that their fancy executive desk can stay free of electronic clutter.
