    U Shaped Office Desk Buying Guide

    Considering a U Shaped Desk?

    Functional, spacious, versatile, appealing and impressive – U shaped desks can transform an office space. This desk style makes a statement in your home or work office, easily coordinates with other furniture in your space and works well as a computer desk with options for keyboard trays and grommets for cable management. Generally larger in size, this desk forms a U shape using three primary components: a main desk in the front, credenza in the back and connecting bridge, available in different widths and often right- or left-oriented. If considering a U shaped desk, keep in mind how it might enhance your productivity, desired aesthetics and your budget. It is also important to note the desk’s dimensions to ensure comfortable positioning in your office.

    Seeking Extra Work Surface and Storage Space?

    If abundant work surface and storage space are top priorities, U shaped desks deliver. This desk style permits extra surface space for conducting work, housing essential resources, laying out large documents, incorporating guest seating and concealing confidential materials. View Regency’s OneDesk series, Global’s Zira series, Bush’s Quantum series or JSI’s Brogan series for options that may work well in your office.

    The extra space also aids in other business needs like multi-tasking and facilitating in-office meetings. For example, if you are working on a project and conducting day-to-day business, a U shaped desk allows you the space needed to simultaneously work on both, utilizing resources like files and paperwork and your computer, printer or other electronic media.

    As part of today’s focus on business efficiency, personal offices are more commonly serving as multi-functional spaces, holding meetings, conference calls and more. Many U shaped desks such as Mayline’s Brighton series, Offices to Go’s OTG Casegoods series or Cherryman’s Amber series are available with bow fronts so visitors have a place to review materials, complete paperwork and collaborate on projects. To enhance the in-office meeting experience further, you can also add a coordinating table to the front of the desk configuration.

    When it comes to storage, options are plentiful – from banks of drawers underneath the desk or within the credenza to the addition of a lateral file pedestal or hutch. The credenza is a great place to incorporate storage to ensure you have plenty of room to work freely at your desk. Common credenza storage options include drawer pedestals, lateral file pedestals and cabinets. The addition of a hutch on top of the credenza provides more storage without taking up valuable work surface or floor space.

    For versatility in storage options, check out the following manufacturers: Offices to Go, Global, Mayline and Cherryman. If you are looking to add drawer banks to your selection, order additional storage furniture or change a standard product storage offering, call us at 877-709-9700 to speak with a representative for assistance.

    Make a Statement and Transform your Office

    Not only are U shaped desks extremely functional, they are aesthetically pleasing and leave a lasting impression. An office, especially a home office, is often viewed as a reflection of a person’s own brand or image. Furniture Wholesalers understands the importance of image and aesthetics in creating an office space and offers desks equipped with numerous features, unique styles and finishes.

    Want to accent a hutch with metal trim, open-display shelving or glass doors? No problem. Simply call us at 877-709-9700 and we can help you meet your personal style needs by recommending an office desk or product line with coordinating furniture such as tables, bookcases, lateral files, guest seating pieces and more.

    Prior to purchasing a U shaped desk, measure and confirm desk and office size and space, and give thought to the placement of office essentials. When looking at how a U shaped desk should fit in your office, allocate 3-to-3.5-feet of space along the side for easy movement. Also, keep in mind that the credenza is approximately 2-feet in depth, and for adequate spacing at the front of the desk, allot an extra 3-feet.

    Depending on the type of work you conduct, consider how you will position your resources. For example, if you have frequent guests, you may want to place your computer monitor in a location that restricts viewing access. If that location is underneath your hutch, check your monitor size to ensure it will fit properly.

    Remember to account for doors and windows to eliminate obstructions. You need space to open and close doors, including closets, and will want to receive plenty of natural light to enhance other light sources like overhead lighting and desk lamps. When purchasing an office desk, don’t forget to budget for a desk chair.
