Purchasing a Desk Buying Guide

A child’s desk is an important part of their furniture that provides them with a quiet space where they can be creative and express their imagination. Purchasing a desk will provide your growing child with a space to write, read or work on their computer which will promote their education and development.  At we offer many different styles to choose from that will compliment a variety of bedroom settings.


What Will You Use A Desk For

Deciding on the main use of the desk before purchasing will make your decision easier. Different styles of desks can be used for different situations for example if you are studying art, a slanted desk may be more approprite or if you are studying and need a computer then a desk with computer features will be handy.



Small Desk

Small desk are ideal for writing and doing homework, they are also perfect for smaller bedrooms with limited space.

Slanted Desk

Slanted desks are perfect for drawing as it allows your child to work with better angles when sketching. The slanted design also encourages kids to draw without hunching forward causing future back problems.

Computer Desk

Computer desks require more space as they need to accommodate the desk top tower as well as other key features of the computer. Most computer tables feature a pull out shelf that you can place your keyboard on freeing space on the work top for your pc screen or paperwork.

Storage Desk

Storage desks are the most popular desks as they provide a substantial work space as well as storage drawers for placing stationary or important paperwork.  

Which Material Do I Choose?

Children’s desk designs come in many materials and attractive finishes that make it fun and inviting for your child to want to study and do their homework. Wood material is a good choice as it offers a durable strong feel that can with stand heavy use.
Metal children’s desks are another option, sturdy and stylish, they are generally recommended for older kids who are less likely to hurt themselves.  Other finishes include particle board, gloss finish and glass which offer a more elegant style and are better suited to teenage style bedrooms.


Measuring Up

Before purchasing your desk you need to measure the area where you plan to place your new desk to ensure it fits into the space. Measuring the width, length and depth is important to make sure it tucks neatly into a space and will not intrude into a walk way.

If you have low ceilings or light fixtures around the area where you will be placing your desk, measure the height of the desk and consider if the space is adequate for the use, for example placing a desk in a loft with a slanting roof may not provide a big enough space.


Caring For Your Furniture

Cleaning your furniture every time after use will ensure the longevity of it, in most cases simply using a damp cloth to wipe the surface. Over time, natural or solid wood will feature wear, just use wax to maintain its lusture. For glass or gloss products using soapy water will help to reduce any stains occurring during usage.
