In an office, organization is a must. Everything from papers to computers, and down to physical files, these things should be organized and must be at their right places all the time.
But often times, we find computers consuming too much of our office space. Thus we resort to larger furniture just to find a place for our computers at work. What is unknown to many is that a corner computer table is actually great when thinking of maximizing office space.
Corner computer tables and desks are great furniture for the office. This can bring elegance to your office that eventually offers a sound working environment. Like any other furniture, corner computer desks come with different sizes and in various designs.
They can be simple to complex designs that are meant to save you space. There are some that are made to just meet the function of keeping your computer where it should be. And there are also some designs of the table that include more functions especially for storage.
The most popular makes of the corner computer desk are wood and metal, preferably aluminum or other light metals combined with glass tops. Wood designs bring more compartments for other items such as a telephone, CDs, DVDs, books, printer, and other stuff needed in an office.
Drawers are also available in computer desks made with wood. For home office, a corner computer table made with wood is recommended. This is to allow users to store more staff aside from what is needed in a regular office.
On the other hand, corner computer tables made from metal can create some really unique but lovely furniture. This includes a three piece table joined as one and placed with a glass top. Other designs include L shape legs decorated with curved bars to create an interesting piece.
When opting for a glass top corner computer desk, one must remember the strength of glass in withstanding the weight of the objects placed on it. Unlike wood and steal, glass tends to break easily when objects place above are too heavy. Computers with LCD monitors are fit for this type of computer table. But for computers that have CRT monitors, wood tops are the best option.
The size of the table is one of the most important factors that needs to be considered when buying. If you plan to use the corner computer desk just to hold your computer, computer monitor (perhaps on top of a monitor riser), then a small workstation is all you need. Opt for tables with measurements 47.5″ (width) x 42.5″ (dimension) or those with similar or smaller sizes. This should give you more room for other furniture you need in an office.
If you plan to use the table for other items aside from your computer system, then large corner computer tables may just fit your need. An L shape table with measurements 51” (width) x 51” (dimension) can be very useful. This provides enough space to store your books, printers, and other things you may need. Suitable heights of computer desks are 29 – 31 inches high. These measurements give your legs an allowance and prevent you from bending when using your machine.
A good corner computer table must also have the CPU placed below. Placing the CPU on top of the table may hinder you from accessing other things that you may need. Having the CPU installed below the table is the best idea since these will give you easy access to the entire table.
