In the modern interiors of many rooms you can find the presence of a desk.
In this article, we will look at several of the most sought-after varieties, methods for designing the working area, the most common materials, the basic requirements before choosing, and also answer the question of interest to many, how to choose a desk?
Varieties of desks
No employee and student can not do without a good desk. We go around such a piece of furniture not only for work, but also for maintaining correct posture and order.
Immediately before choosing, you should decide on the location of the table, as well as its optimal cost and suitability for a certain age.
All writing desks have several varieties:
Hidden - it is compact, in most cases it is disguised as other types of furniture in the overall interior system. Such a model in a closed form is a structure in the form of a fairly large cabinet, and the table top located near the wall can be decorated in the form of a picture.
A table built into the windowsill is a great option for small apartments. This type is presented on the photo of the writing desks, and in this case the main advantage is the presence of a large amount of light.
Corner option - the model is quite compact, but roomy, giving the opportunity to install a computer for work.
A no less common model is considered rectangular. This is a traditional classic version with a massive tabletop. Only retractable shoemakers can be supplied with it. An excellent choice for a room with a large free space.
Materials for the manufacture of a desk
As a rule, the choice of material characterizes the status of the owners. In this case, this is not about material well-being, but about the main functionality and for whom it is intended.
The cost and duration of operation also depend on the materials. The main most suitable materials include:
DSP. It has a relatively low cost, but at the same time it is considered the most popular variety. The main disadvantages are the rapid deterioration and the possibility of formaldehyde release, which can adversely affect human health.
MDF. A bit more expensive than the previous version, but much safer. This is a great option. Able to replace wood.
Natural wood. It is an attractive and durable option, especially if elite breeds are used, but this option has a high cost.
Plastic. It will not last long, but is perfect for those whose price is the main argument for the purchase.
Glass is an unusual variant, distinguished by its stylishness and requiring careful care.
Metal is considered less popular. It is suitable only if it fits into the overall interior, and this variety can be custom-made to suit individual ideas.
Choosing a table based on age
All the features of the models are directly related to those for whom it is purchased this piece of furniture.
So, for example, when choosing an “adult” table, you shouldn’t focus on certain details for a long time. In this case, it is important that it be sufficiently roomy and functional. Do not forget about the overall interior.
With regard to color, shape and material, here it can be based on individual preferences. Do not forget about the most optimal height, which will allow not only to maintain posture, but also to evenly distribute the total load on the back area.
For schoolchildren, a desk must meet several requirements, for example, an optimum level of height, width of a tabletop, good illumination at any time of the day, and the availability of a suitable chair.
As materials it is better to use natural materials that are safe and durable.
Separate attention deserves the choice of a table for two children. In this case there are several options:
- common worktop, divided into two working areas;
- one table top. Having two perpendicular workplaces;
- the presence of a wall on which the upper tier includes a berth, and the lower one - a working area.
In this case, the children have enough free space.
Multifunctional models of desks
There are varieties of desks, which have additional functions that allow you to properly organize your work space. In this case, excellent assistants will be:
- sliding panel for keyboard placement;
- the presence of a niche for the power supply;
- the presence of shelves and racks;
- adjustable modules.
On how the desk will be equipped depends on how functional it will be used.
