If you are looking for a new metal desk, odds are you will find desks with metal bases and drawers, but with tops made of some kind of laminate. The all-metal desks of old seem to have fallen out of favor. The McDowell Craig company however refurbishes old steel furniture. This may be an option for you, or you may want to try finding a second-hand desk in your area. A good metal desk can last for many many years with little maintenance.

When shopping for a laptop bag, make sure you get something that is well made. Check how the straps and handles are attached to the bag. In my experience, this is the first thing to break when a bag is cheaply made. Also look at the stitching and make sure it is not frayed anywhere. If you are going for a leather bag, make sure it is well cured, you do not want it to discolor and stain your clothing in the process.

Most people keep their computer monitor at one set height and never move it again. But if you ever feel neck strain from being at your computer all day, it might be a good idea to mount your screen to a stand that can be adjusted in a multitude of ways. If you want to stand at your desk, if you need to turn your monitor vertically, if you often show other people what is on your screen, or if you simply want to determine the optimal placement for your monitor, this type of mount could be a good thing to invest in.

If you’re trying to make your home office look a little less “office grey”, consider buying office furniture in different colors. For example, a steel-grey looking file cabinet can be swapped out for a black office storage cabinet that is not only as functional, but just plain cooler looking. Also, since the storage cabinet is black, you can use it in other rooms as well without it looking too out of place.

Whether for a child’s room, guest room or tiny office space, a small computer desk can accommodate one’s work and entertainment needs nicely. Most small computer desks provide enough space for a laptop or flat screen monitor, and come equipped with a mouse and Keyboard drawer. And some desks even come equipped with stationary drawers and a hanging file drawer for most, if not all, of your document storing needs.
