Executive Desks

When we hear the term, executive desk, we may tend to think of a desk made for an Executive.

But, the term really refers more to the style of the desk versus the position you must hold in order to sit and work at one.

An executive desk tends to be large in scale and generally includes several drawers for storage. Because they are so large, incorporating drawers in the design is an easy and practical addition.

If you opt for an Executive Desk for your home office, just be sure that you have the space for it…did I mention, they are large.

Standing Desk or Stand-Up Desk

The newest of all desk designs is the stand up or standing desk.

For those who are looking for something completely different, you may want to opt for a stand up desk – an office desk that you work at while standing.

I have heard it said that sitting is the new smoking. And most of that time, for many of us, is while we are at work sitting in front of out computer screens.

The same people saying that too much sitting is bad for your health claim that standing may be much better for you. I happen to agree.

After taking the plunge myself a few years ago, I will never look back.

I stand all day long without issue – for the most part.

If you are not sure if you can handle a full day of work standing, you can choose to install an adjustable height stand up desk.

Some adjustable height desks have a manual mechanism and some have an electronic one. The electronic ones are easier to manipulate and change heights and are generally, more expensive.
