How to Choose a Home Computer Desk Correctly

By Davidson Subscribe to RSS | January 22nd 2012 | Views:

For a long time computers have been an inalienable attribute of everybodies' life. Today it is difficult for each person to imagine their full absence both in offices and at our homes. People, both adults and teenagers and even children spend in front of their monitor considerable part of their work and free time. I hope you understand how important it is to pave yourselves the way for the highest possible comfort during your work time.

On that, how rightly your home computer space will be organized, depends how fast you will get tired, and even the size of the risk to get some diseases, connected with constant tension and incorrect carriage.

So, we start to choose a desk for you and your computer. I hope, you have already got a computer and you have a free place in your room, where you are going to work with it. By the way, some doctors recommend to have bluish walls in such a room. Probably, I’ll have to recolor a part of the wall soon.

The first, what we pay attention to, is the size of the desktop. The desk should have sufficient depth to secure the correct distance from your eyes to the monitor. Usually this distance is equal to the length of your arm or some inches longer. This rule is connected with the fact, that our eyes exert themselves more, when they examine something nearby. A computer desk can have a special shelf for the monitor, but you should decide yourselves, whether you need it. The second rule is: The monitor's center must be a little lower than your eyes , when you are sitting at your desk.

A desktop can be of any shape, that you like, or that suits your room better. In my opinion, it’s very comfortable, when a desk has a concave shape in that place, where you sit. It allows to put the elbows comfortably on the desktop and to take the tension from the shoulders away.

Computer desks often have a sliding shelf for a keyboard and a mouse, which is under the desk’s surface. It’s up to you, whether to use it or not. There is the only inpotant thing to secure yourself a comfortable position during your work, with a shelf or without it.

The next, you pay your attention is the presence of a special shelf for the system unit. You should know that your computer must have enough air for cooling. In another aspect, it is desirable that the vibrations from the system unit do not go to the desktop, where you put your arm. For some people it is important, especially if they have an old computer.

Whether you need additional shelves and pedestals for your PC, it’s up to you to decide. It depends on the fact, what you are going to place on the desk and what you are accustomed "to have at hand". If you have got a printer, a scanner, a telephone, speakers and your favourite cactus, you can’t do without additional shelves. I even shall not ask you, whether you have got a cat, which likes to warm itself at the monitor. Think about this yourselves.

In my opinion it is very convenient when a computer desk has special chutes for arranging wires into them. It not only adds your working place careful look, but also protects the wires from undesirable becoming tangled and from bends.

That’s, perhaps, all I wanted to write about the choosing of a home computer desk.
