How To Find The Right Desk For You

At CIS Interiors, we design and manufacture a variety of desks, and we understand that finding the desk that suits you and your space isn’t as easy as it sounds. That’s why we’ve created these top tips for finding the right sized desk.

What Height Should Your Desk Be?

If you’re between 5ft and 6.5ft tall, then the height of your office desk needs to be around 712mm to 762mm for you to sit comfortably when using a regular-sized desk chair. 

If you’re taller, you may want to look at and invest in an adjustable desk instead, which will allow you to move the top and can be used in a comfortable sitting or standing position.

What Width Should Your Desk Be?

The minimum width for your desk should be around 610mm. Anything smaller than this, you’ll find that may struggle to fit necessary equipment or items on it comfortably. 

You’ll also want to consider where your desk will be set up, what exactly needs to be put on it and how long you’ll be using your desk. If you use a desk for long periods of time, you may want to look at a larger sized desk. 

What Depth Should Your Desk Be?

To ensure you have enough room to be able to work and have the equipment you need on your desk, the depth of the desk should be between 508mm and 762mm, with a minimum width of 610mm. It’s better to have extra space, rather than too little.
