It’s very dainty to find a home office that doesn’t have a computer of some kind. The use of word-processing programs and Internet access alone has become so widespread that you now expect to find computers everywhere and especially in a home office.
A height adjustable desk is the pinnacle of computer desks for your office. Because they all come in different shapes and sizes and one desk generally doesn’t fit all. Having a desk that’s the wrong height can make you uncomfortable and irritate.

Certainly, it can lead to bad posture while working which in turn can lead to back problems. If you can’t find a height adjustable desk then make sure you have more than ample leg room underneath the desk; your legs should not be cramped or restricted in any way.
Some computer desks come with a sliding tray for your keyboard and mouse. These are ideal when you’re working with limited space but just make sure that your keyboard is between 28 and 30 inches above the floor.
Every computer obviously has a monitor of some kind and the height the monitor is placed at whilst you’re working is equally important. Your desk should be set up such a way that the upper edge of the monitor is directly at eye level with your seated position. This will prevent you looking upwards or downwards while you work.
Another key point with a good computer desk is storage space. There’s nothing more annoying than having to stop what you’re doing and go searching for a stapler or notepad.
You won’t always just be typing at your desk. You may have documents you need to read or sign or just some paperwork that needs filing. Your desk should have enough room for this and more. Many people buy a desk without taking this aspect of working from home into account – you can never have enough space on you desk; more is always better.
