By: A.Deakin | Posted: 03rd November 2009

Many people prefer to work a 9 to 5 job as they find it not so much stressful. Most of those people have offices where they work on computers. But there are so many factors which decrease the productivity of our work and ruin our health. One of those is computer desks. For example, if the monitor is too close to us (because of the desk's small size) we will surely have problems with our eyes.

If your office is a comfortable environment, that would increase your level of productivity. When you are comfortable settled down in your chair and work without any distractions and obstacles, you will do your work much faster. That proves that if you spend little money on a desk, you will return on the money as you start to do much more work for less time.

Perhaps, you wonder what the criteria are for the perfect computer desk. There are actually a lot of things you should know when choosing a comfortable desk.

First, you need to choose is how big you want your computer desk to be. It mainly depends on how many computer appliances you have. Make sure you have enough room to put all your computer equipments such as fax, printer etc. However, you do not want your desk to be covered with these machines, and you also need to have room for reading contracts or signing them.

If you work on a computer, probably you do a lot of data entry. Having a good position to your keyboard must be extremely important for you. It is not a good idea you put your keyboard on the surface of the desk next where the monitor, printer and the other appliances are. You had better have another section which can slide and allow you 'hide' your keyboard under the surface of the computer desk when it is not needed.

It is a good idea you have room for storing your documents (especially if you do not have a cabinet). Even if you do not need to store any documents, you can put some books there and make it a little library in your office. It will affect on the atmosphere in a positive way.

Another aspect you should give attention to is the style and the material of your future computer desk. Make sure it suits well to your office and makes it even more attractive than it is. In most cases desks made of wood are the better choice as they show hospitality. If you are a businessman you can also get a metal one as it shows respect, honor, and a doze of cold feelings.

Once you have chosen your computer desk, you had better get a new comfortable chair as well. You have no idea how important a chair is for your health especially when you spend so much time a day sitting on it. A bad chair can cause some serious problems with your backbone or waist. It will make you feel tired and will decrease your productivity really a lot. Never underestimate the importance of the comfortable chair in your office as it is a main factor of your successful day at work.

When you understand how important computer desks and chairs are for your comfort at work, you have found the key to the higher quality of work for even less time.
