Tips for choosing the ideal little desk
1. In the right size
The first tip to choose the ideal desk is to define its purpose of use and the place where it will be used.
The desk is usually placed in a hidden corner of the house, but it does not have to be this way. The furniture can gain prominence and a special place in the environment. You can choose to use it in the living room, bedroom, hallway or office as long as you can reconcile the measures necessary for your tasks with the measurements of the place. The tip is to put the furniture in a quiet room that favors moments of concentration.
Also evaluate what will be placed on the desk. A computer? Workbooks? Printer? The more things to put on the mobile, the greater it will need to be.
2. Functionality and beauty
As said earlier, the desk is an extremely functional piece of furniture, but that does not mean it does not have to be pretty. On the contrary. It is perfectly possible to combine these two elements in a single proposal, provided you have in mind what will be the main use of the mobile.
There are several desk models. Some have drawers, some have CPU support. There are also desks with shelves or space for the keyboard. Whatever the model, the most important is that it meets your needs and is practical enough to organize your daily routine.
3. Style versus material
For the desk to integrate with the rest of the decoration look for a model that follows the proposal of the environment. Rustic-style decorations combine with wooden desks, while more modern environments are ideal for metal and glass. Now if the proposal is to create a laid-back and laid-back decor, a pallet desk might be the perfect solution.
4. Bench, chair or armchair
A self-service desk has a convenient and comfortable place to sit. This place can be a bench, a chair or an armchair. Set the template according to the style of the desk and also based on the time in which you will remain in place. If you use the desk to work, a backless seat may not be the most comfortable option. Take these factors into consideration when choosing the seat for your desk.
5. Buy ready, order do or DIY?
The answer to this question will depend on your analysis of the topics above and how much you want to invest in the mobile. Nowadays it is possible to buy a desk for around $ 200 in virtual stores like American , Houses Bahia or Free market .
Just as it is also possible to make a desk at home or opt for a custom-made project in a joinery, in this case, keep in mind that you may have to shell out a larger amount than the previous two options.
