Student Desks for Educational and Classroom Settings
Sturdy, functional student desks are central to any pupil's work life. Much as in the professional work lives of many adults, the desk is one of the main locations where students get work done, whether it's homework, research or study. Gone are the days when one desk fit all. Today's crop of desks come in a range of styles, from traditional to transitional, modern and contemporary. Brands like Marvel and Safco manufacture desks of different color schemes, shapes, sizes and materials, including metal, wood and polyvinyl. There are rolling student desks, computer desks, deluxe writing desks with drawers, adjustable desks, and desks for arts and crafts. With so many choices, it's possible to find precisely the right desk for any student or learning environment.
Traditional Student Desks With Attached Storage Options
Research suggests a link between cluttered desks and the ability to think creatively. Go figure. Luckily, desks with attached storage options are able to sustain clutter or cleanliness. Drawers or metallic mesh book baskets located under desks conveniently hold books, paper and sundry items. The mesh book basket on some brands is removable for students who require more leg room. Other desks include an additional lower shelf for more storage. Traditional open-faced or lift-lid student desks include an accessible compartment for stowing reading materials and supplies. Desks with steel, distressed oak or maple frames are sturdy and can stand up to long-term use. High-pressure laminate tops over particle board resist stains and scratches. Student desks with wheels or non-mar swivel guides move easily without destroying floors or pulling back muscles. Many desks are adjustable, so students can tailor the desk's height in 1-inch increments for comfortable positioning. Economy shapes allow for different configurations of multiple desks to fit into most spaces.
Computer Desks, Writing Desks and Training Desks
Computer desks, writing desks and training desks extend work space in a dorm, at home, in the classroom or the lab. Some are simple foldable and portable desks, while others are home office-size wood desks with drawers. Computer desks have open frames with stationary or sliding shelves for printers, a keyboard tray, a compartment for motherboards or other peripherals. Many styles accommodate laptops or desktops for added convenience, and sleek dimensions allow desks to fit comfortably into limited floor space. Many computer desks have a total weight under 30 pounds, so they're manageable on moving day. Writing desks have large surfaces for home office technology and drawers for storage and organization. Some double as computer desks, with grommets and grooves for discreet cable management. Training desks with locking rear doors stand side-by-side in classrooms or libraries. Work surfaces include wire grommets, vertical wire management within C-shaped legs, and removable rear side plates for side-by-side cable connections.
