Shopping for office furniture can be a daunting task. Whether you are shopping for a home office or for your place of business there are several factors to consider such as how much space you have to work with, what type of equipment you need to accommodate and what kind of look you are going for. Below is a basic overview of some of your choices.
Computer Armoires and Hutches
A Computer armoire is the way to go to keep a home office concealed and tidy. Computer armoires come in a variety of sizes and which one to pick will depend mainly on how much room you have as well as how big your computer is. Do not make the mistake of not measuring your space! Armoires come in a variety of sizes ranging from 40 - 60 inches wide and 58 - 78 inches tall (if not taller). This is a great option if you do not have an extra room for an office.
They come in beautiful, elegant woods that may fit into your home perfectly, when you are done with your work just shut the doors and it looks like an attractive wardrobe. A computer hutch is very similar to an armoire, once again these are probably best for a home office. They really can go anywhere that you have room. The main difference is that a hutch will not have doors similar to a wardrobe. It has high shelves for storage and should fit any size computer.
These are ideal for either small spaces or businesses where a computer or other equipment must be mobile. Generally these are best if you don't have many other miscellaneous office supplies that you need to work with. You can find ones that hold a desktop computer with the tower down below, by your feet, or a laptop with a printer. That is pretty much the extent of the home office use. These are commonly used in hospitals and doctors offices as they sometimes have wheels. If you run any type of business where one computer should be mobile this is an ideal option.
Credenzas are long pieces of furniture which will usually have file storage space. This can be a stylish choice for a large home office or business office. They can be very simple without drawers but ample desktop space, or fancy with a more ornamental look. As mentioned before since they are pretty elongated it is imperative that you take your space measurements before choosing the perfect credenza.
Of course an old fashioned desk may be the way to go. Just make sure that if you are working with a desktop computer that your desk has a pullout shelf for the keyboard. This of course isn't really necessary if you are working with a laptop however, it may be perfect for computer storage. You may prefer a corner desk which will give you ample space for the computer and its components such as the printer, scanner or whatever else you may have.
Hopefully after reading this you have narrowed down your options if not singled one out. Just remember to take certain factors into consideration such as whether or not your computer has a tower or if you would like file storage space before you just purchase the best looking piece of furniture on the sales floor.
