How To Choose The Right Executive Desk

Oxford – Curved Executive Desk

Building an office space requires attention to detail. Ideally, it should cater to all of your requirements so that your productivity is maximised and everything is within your reach. Your workspace’s most crucial element is a work desk – a perfect space where you can sit down and start working without any distractions or setbacks. It is, therefore, essential that you pick the right work desk when the time comes. The wrong work desk might detrimentally impact your productivity and discourage sitting down for work.

Especially in this quarantine era where we are far away from our office space’s comforts, many of us are trying to create the ideal workspace at home. Ensure that when you make your purchases, you pick an executive desk that works for you and not against you.

Based on your line of work, you can look forfeatures that suit your needs – for a large variety of unique executive desks; it would be a good idea to go for a reputable executive desk supplier, like Auraa Design.

What Kind of Work Do You Do?

Like all products in the market, there are work desks of various kinds designed for multiple purposes:

  • Working on computer
    If you are mostly into computer work, you can find a CEO desk explicitly built to explicitly built for grandeur and can accomodate a lot including a wide screen computer. There are desks available that have built-in caches and compartments to hold the various external components of your computer, if any, like the CPU, as well as wiring channels that can hide the cords and cables. You may also want to look for power outlets that are built into the desk so that you can operate multiple devices simultaneously. All of these features will help you keep your desk clutter-free and clean.

  • Paperwork
    On the other hand, if you deal with many physical documents and books, you may want to opt for a spacious Executive Desk with Credenza. Keep in mind that aside from your laptop/computer and electronics, people with a lot of paperwork will need to keep files, stationery, and books handy, so if you pick a smaller desk, you will eventually have to purchase another one. To prevent this, select a sizeable roomy desk, like the Alexia U-Leg Wooden Executive Desk sold by Auraa Design. The comfortable L-shaped design helps you organise better, enabling you to set up two simultaneous workstations on one perfect desk.

  • Multitasking/Sharing
    L-shaped desks are also helpful if you work from office or home as there is plenty of space to maneuver. These are also called ergonomic desks as they help easy movement and working.
    But if you are in a family environment that is a little claustrophobic and tight when it comes to space, you may want to look for a portable computer desk or even sit-stand computer desk or also called a height adjustable desk so that you can work healthy without occupying too much space for your desk. 


Let’s Look At Ergonomics

A desk buyer’s nightmare is purchasing a beautiful piece and realising it is not comfortable at all – which is why you should check your measurements before you buy an executive desk. Here are a few things you may want to keep an eye out for-

  • First of all, your legs should fit inside your desk comfortably with plenty of room for air. Standard desks are around thirty inches from the floor, which should be suitable for most people, but if you are not of average height, ensure that you estimate the ideal size for you and shop accordingly. 
  • There should also be at least a foot length of space between you and your desk, as well as between the desk and the wall or other furniture. Make sure that even if you buy a giant desk, it will fit in your room comfortably. 
  • The positioning of the keyboard drawer is also something to look out for. Sometimes, traditional desks may not be the best for the worker who uses computers a lot, especially when it comes to posture and comfort. Such workers should go for either computer desks with adjustable height desks or ones with legs adjusted according to your needs. 
  • Lastly, if you have kids running around your home office or a lot of traffic moving around your office, you may want to pick an executive desk without sharp edges, like the Oxford Curved Executive Desk sold by Auraa Design.


There are also various other choices in terms of the desk surface material – laminate, metal, wood/veneer, or even glass are popular options that look chic. Make sure that your desk seems durable and resistant to damage from both biotic and abiotic factors. A quick way to ensure a desk’s quality is to check out its drawers – the corners of the woodcut should be sturdy and without fraying. 

Last but not least, make sure you purchase your desk from a reputed online retailer like Auraa Designs so that you can rest assured about the warranty and longevity of your CEO desk.
