How Do You Know Which Used Office Desk Is Right For Your Office?
To find the answer, first ask yourself these questions:
- What does the layout of your office look like right now? Do you have a segmented space with contained offices? If so, traditional desks might be a good fit for your office. Or, do you have an open office style? Some of our new, modern office workstations might be a better fit.
- How much space do you have to use? If your office space has a lot of open room and you want to improve the productivity of your employees, you can invest in some of our larger desks with left-hand or right-hand returns to give your employees more room to work. However, if space is at a premium, our credenza style or pedestal style desks are probably a better fit for your office.
- How much storage space do you need? If your employees are in need of extra storage space, you might want to invest in our new workstations, which typically come with file cabinets or hutches for extra storage. Some of our larger desks come with plenty of drawers for storage as well. And, of course, you can always check out our used file cabinets!

Frequently Asked Questions About Office Desks
What Is the Average Size of a Desk?
Average desk sizes have been getting smaller since we use less paper in offices these days and rely on our laptops and/or smartphones. Depending upon the type of work you do and the office space available, you should choose a size comfortable for you where you can keep the items you need within easy reach. Common office desk dimensions are 48 inches, 60 inches, or 72 inches in width by 24 inches, 30 inches, or 36 inches depth—but these days, you can get a variety of sizes to suit your tasks and your space.
How High Should a Desk Be?
Your desk, whether it is a traditional desk or standing desk, should be at the height of your elbows so your shoulders are relaxed and your hands rest comfortably on the desktop or keyboard. Use a keyboard tray if necessary, and adjust your desk height (and chair) to achieve the elbow height goal. Keeping wrists relatively straight (in line with your forearms) helps to stave off carpal tunnel and other painful repetitive motion ailments.
In addition, make sure there is enough room for your legs to move under the desk without banging your knees. Static (non-adjustable) desks typically come in at 28 inches to 30 inches high, but if you choose an adjustable model (and an adjustable desk chair), you can customize your desk height to fit your needs.
How Much Do Desks Cost?
As you might imagine, there are desks at every price point. For guidance, just let our staff know your goals, staff size, business sector, and other details and we can recommend attractive, comfortable, and durable furnishings for your workspace. If your budget is especially tight, consider our high-quality used office furniture. With office turnover and redesign common, we have access to a wide variety of gently used office furnishings. We also carry the latest desk designs and offer related services like space planning, office furniture delivery, and office furniture disposal.
Getting Creative with Your Desk
If office space is truly at a premium or you’re working remotely at home, consider a corner desk—provided you arrange proper lighting and that you’re not cramped without room to move your legs. You may prefer a writing desk, with just enough room for your laptop or an old-fashioned notebook, facing a wall with an idea board in front of you for inspiration.
Many individuals have abandoned the desk in favor of a work table, which could work well for you unless you have a need for desk drawers. A large desk or work table can convey power, and many executives have used desk size as a sign of their position in the company. This can still work, especially if negotiations will take place across your desk. You can use your desk style and/or color to underscore your branding or convey the style of your business or industry. You could also work for part of the day using a counter or a sit-stand desk, which you can pull up to counter height.
