Executive Desk Buying Guide
An executive desk is a perfect addition to the office as it offers more functionality and aesthetics compared to a standard desk. Executive desks are often wider and deeper than a standard desk and usually include a few other useful features. A modesty panel is usually found on executive desks and storage solutions are also a priority. If you are looking for a larger work surface with lots of storage, then an executive desk is the way to go.
There are many benefits associated with an executive desk, such as:
Additional space and storage
The different types of executive desks to buy
When selecting an executive desk, it is important to consider the different types of executive desks available. Generally speaking, there are three main types of executive desk:
Melamine desks are constructed from a manufactured wood substrate, or particle boards, such as plywood or MDF, which has been covered in melamine laminate. Melamine laminate is formed through polymerization as a hard, durable and waterproof plastic material. Melamine is an extremely popular material in the office furniture sector and can be made in a variety of colours and natural wood grains.
Wood veneer offers similar benefits to melamine when it comes to office desks - excellent durability, affordability and a wide range of designs and finishes. Unlike melamine, though, wood veneer uses actual wood in its construction. A wood veneer consists of a thin layer of natural hardwood, which is bonded to a composite material. Wood veneer is more affordable than solid timber, and it also has the benefits of offering durability and longevity over solid timber, since timber is susceptible to moisture and warping.
Glass is an excellent choice for executive desks because it provides a stunning, bright aesthetic with incredible durability and minimal upkeep. Glass is surprisingly strong and offers excellent heat and stain resistance. Keeping glass clean is also incredibly simple - oftentimes all that is required is a wipe-down and it looks as good as new. There is also an aesthetic beauty associated with using glass as it looks elegant and sophisticated. Glass is also long-lasting and resistant to scratches and scuffs. It can be a little bit more expensive than the alternatives discussed above.
