Style and Design, Office desks are created in a variety of styles to match the needs of every design. Many contemporary desks are fabricated with modern materials of metals, acrylics and glass. Traditional desks are typically built out of hardwoods including Maple, Oak, Mahogany and Cherry. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and each has its advantages and disadvantages. L-shaped office desks are ideal for large offices where space is limited. The L-shaped naturally utilizes corners effectively and makes the most of its space with additional storage and a larger desktop surface.
So when buying an office desk, make sure that you are not just ensuring that it possesses all the characteristics required of desks but that you can be a little creative with its design. A plethora of designs are available, of which antique desks are an important variety. These desks are specially meant for the offices with a classy and sophisticated look. If you have a fetish for antique stuffs, then antique office desks are the ones for you. These desks will impart an antique and classy look to your office which is bound to attract the attention of the clients and visitors.
The rollers should be sturdy enough to support the drawer, even when fully extended. Another tip is to check the material the desk is made from. Wood desks should be made of solid and hard wood, give the desk a tap or knock to see how it sounds. You want to hear a solid thud and not something that sounds like an echo. Metal desks should be constructed from metal that does not bend or flex when weight is placed on it. You can easily and quickly check the quality while walking around a showroom and this will help ensure you don’t end up buying a lemon desk that doesn’t stand the test of time in your office.
You cannot just jump in and start painting without priming it first. Apply a layer of primer to the desk after sanding it and leave it for a day to let it dry properly. Once the primer dries, you can go ahead with the painting. For painting you would need a paint brush and roller. Apply the paint properly and since the desks require a second coat of painting, let the first coat of paint dry. Once it dries, add the second coat of paint. To give the desk a bright and polished look, apply varnish after painting it. Once you are done with this process, your desk will be ready to use. Though painting an old office desk does not call for skill, if you are not sure about your expertise, get a professional for the job.
