Home Office Guide: How to Find the Best Desk [2024]

Creating a perfect home office starts with finding your ideal desk. A desk can make or break your work flow, so it’s important to understand everything that goes into choosing the right one. Let’s show you how to find the best match – including a few office tips you might not have known about!

How to Choose a Desk that Fits You

So, if you’re like us, chances are you need to be mindful with how you move throughout your day (lest we accidentally sneeze wrong and throw out our back). To help you choose an office desk that won’t send you to the chiropractor every other week, we made you a quick Ergonomics checklist:

  • First of all, when you sit down, you want to make sure that your hips and pelvis are slightly higher than your knees.
  • Your monitor should be high enough to meet your eye level when sitting up straight; this helps you to maintain the ideal posture.
  • When typing, check to see that your hands and wrist are flat on the keyboard and that your elbows are bent at a 90 degree angle. Most desk and chair combinations make that tricky, but having a standing desk allows you to customize your exact height preferences for optimal sitting and standing postures.

Standing Desks for the Home Office

Home Office 101: a good desk makes for a great work day.

Wait, did someone mention standing desks? We love standing desks! They are so vital to keeping your body free of aches and pains. It can be tricky to remember to take breaks and move your body when you’re super into an important project. A customer-favorite Geller desk, available at Costco, has a smooth motorized function that can be raised up to 47 inches in height. But the best part? The GetActive Timer makes it easy to switch from sitting to standing with an alert when it’s time to alternate positions. It’s like having your very own movement coach.

Home Office Size: Big or Small, Our Desks Complement it All!

Use this desk in your home office or in the family room.

If you’re using a multipurpose space, like a guest bedroom or family room, it’s best to match the look of the existing décor for a sense of harmony. For a functional look, the Twin Star Home® Adjustable Height Desk (shown above) is a lovely choice. Clean lines and an ash gray oak finish blend in seamlessly with your existing furniture, while the up/down buttons help you customize your height preferences. This desk is perfect for anyone trying to conserve space and keep up a tidy look with four hooks to help you wrap extra cables into a neat circle.

An electronic standing desk is a perfect home office staple.

If you have a full room to work with, however, you have much more flexibility. If elegance is a top priority, you can’t go wrong with the Tedford Adjustable Glass Standing Desk, featured above. A smooth silhouette with a gleaming glass top and cherry stain on the sides offers a sophisticated look to set the tone for a productive day. Helpful details include a timer that reminds you to stand and three USB ports that keep your devices powered.
