WHAT CAN HABITAT'S DESKS BE USED FOR?
At Habitat we offer an extensive range of desks, each designed to suit a variety of needs. For example, if you always work remotely, you'll want a substantial home office desk; practical and utilitarian with plenty of designated work space. If you tend to use a desktop computer, then you’ll need a computer table, and so on. The key is to make sure your desk absolutely works for you - that's half the job done.
As lovely as the above sounds, we’re well aware that space is the holy grail of property, and it may well be that you don’t have a whole room spare to turn into your professional sanctuary. In this instance, consider a study desk; a desk on a smaller scale that effortlessly adapts into an existing room. Easy to tuck away in a kitchen alcove, they offer a discreet way of utilising space. This could even apply to the kids - if they’ve got homework, these stylish desks give them somewhere to sit down and focus. You can keep an eye on them, while ensuring all furniture remains pleasing to your eye.
Maybe your desk needs aren’t strictly professional, and you simply want something that you can easily pull in front of you while watching TV. In this case, laptop desks are ideal; surf the net, pay the bills and order the weekly shop, without ever having to leave the cosiness of theWorks for us.
WHAT MATERIALS AND COLOURS DO DESKS COME IN?
Ok, let’s talk colour. Studies suggest that blue is the most productive shade, so we recommend following this cue when it comes to painting your walls. Here, a white desk will look ultra chic and really stand out against any shade you choose, be it deep as the ocean or bright as the sky. Or how about a black desk? Black would pose a striking contrast against white walls: there’s always something of the ‘wow’ factor about a monochrome palette. Alternatively, wooden designs never go out of style. Quintessentially traditional, an oak desk or walnut desk are indisputably timeless.
Moving on from the classic, we come to contemporary, with a metal or glass desk an undeniably chic option. Clean and elegant, glass is the perfect choice for those partial to minimalist interior styling, or those who prefer to adopt a fuss-free approach to their working environment. After all, they do say less is more.
WHAT SIZE OF DESK DO YOU NEED?
A large or small desk, that is the question. Remember, size is key. Where is it going? Will it fit? Sometimes the practical element gets in the way, therefore if you have a relatively small space to work with, then a folding desk might be best. It can be there when you need it, tucked away when it’s not. If you have an alcove, then go for a small desk that fits neatly inside the space - almost like it isn’t even there.
If you do have space to play with - go big. Measure the room to make sure you have the freedom - our product pages provide all the information you need concerning dimensions. Aside from the aesthetics, think about the practical angle. How much desktop space do you need? Are you a neat worker, or do you love a little organised chaos? A big desk could help you to keep things neat. Remember; tidy desk, tidy mind.
WHAT OTHER FURNITURE AND ACCESSORIES DO YOU NEED?
Are you sitting comfortably? We hope so. Studies suggest that sitting slumped over a desk all day can be damaging to your health, so it’s imperative you find a chair that encourages good posture. You’ll also want to make sure that your chair blends in stylistically. At Habitat we housein quirky, retro designs, or classic styles and modern shapes. There’s something that works for everyone. (And they’re just what the doctor ordered.)
Whenever you look up from your notebook or laptop, you’ll want to see more than four walls. Bookcases and shelving offer a practical solution to storing work books and study guides, while also providing ample space for you to add decorative items, such as ornaments and artwork.
And all that pesky paperwork? This is where oursolutions can be of assistance. And if you need a little help focusing, our range of table lamps will no doubt show you the light.
