Office table is always the central element in an office space. It’s also for most of the working adults spend the majority of their work day. So it is worth to invest some time into determining what your perfect office tables looks like.

Here’s what you should consider when choosing your office table:

1. Working Style

The first thing to consider is how you’ll be using your table. Do you generally work on your computer? Do you deal with a lot of paper? Or is it a combination? In any case, figure out what your working style is before you start your search for your perfect working table. This will ensure that whatever table you end up settling on, will align with your day to day work patterns.

2. Configuration

There are a number of different types of table configurations you can opt for. You’ll be spending a lot of time at your desk so make sure that you select a desk configuration style that is suited for your office space. Do not forget to consider the ergonomics chair that accompany  your table.Types of tables configurations include L-shape, U-shape, Y-shape, Rectangular shape, Cross shape, corner desk and center of the room.

3. Space

The amount of space you have for a table area will narrow down your choices even further. Do you have a big office or do you work out of your small room ? Lucky for us, there are a ton of options for either situation. You want to look at executive desks for a large office, or compact tables for a smaller work space.

Regarding space, you’ll also want to figure out how much surface area you need for a table. Will there be a lot of electronics and cables on your table ? How much storage would you like at your table?

4. Surface

Keeping in mind your working style, think about what material you’d want your table to be. The most common ones are laminate, metal/steel and wood. If you’re doing work that required applying pressure to your desk a sturdy wood desk is most suited. On the other hand, if you’ll mostly be using a computer to work a laminated board desk is ideal.


5. Alternate Options

If you’re ready to steer away from the traditional desk, there are options for you. If being ultra compact is your goal, consider a table that fold up to tuck away your work. If you want to experience the benefits of a standing desk, that’s another option. Finally, a fun options, if you are so inclined, is the foldable table. It’s sturdy, and portable.
