Matching the type of student desk to the user

The style, size, and design of student desks and carrels often have a direct impact on the productivity of users. Desktop computer users require more surface area to work than those with a laptop. You should also take into consideration the addition of a printer, desk lamp, and other necessities when choosing the size of the desktop. Built-in storage areas hold pencils, pens, notebooks, and other homework necessities, while a one-piece armchair desk helps maximize the use of floor space in classrooms. Consider a height-adjustable table that grows with the student or is customizable to the user, or opt for open-front designs that can be placed facing one another to facilitate communication in teams. Cubbies and workstations work well for younger children when paired with multi-color rugs to create an interactive study area.

Benefits of study carrels in the classroom

Study carrels create a distraction-free work area for standardized testing, reading, or daily work. Tall sides reduce the chance of conversations with peers or wandering eyes during important exams. The simple square design makes it possible to place the units side by side to save space, or they work as a standalone piece of furniture that tucks well into a corner for maximum solitude. Metal glides protect solid-surface floors, while cord management systems make it possible to reduce clutter from cables and wires. Most designs offer plenty of leg room to accommodate any size office chair.
