Desks for the Busy Professional

“An organized space creates clarity and clarity attracts success.”

April 26 is National Administrative Professionals Day. This day recognizes all the hardworking administrators, administrative assistants, secretaries, and receptionists who contribute to keeping offices running smoothly. Handling all the demanding tasks that come through a busy office takes organizational and multitasking skills that are on point. It also requires a desk where they can stay organized, store paperwork, answer phones, take notes, and more.

What desks are best for busy professionals? Amish made desks that offer custom options to accommodate computers, phones, and keyboards, as well as provide ample work space and storage fit the bill. Here’s a look at how different desk styles will support busy professionals throughout the workday.

The Computer Desk

A computer desk like the Amish Lincoln Computer Desk with Optional Hutch provides essential work space. It can comfortably house computer equipment, and provides room for paperwork and supplies. Computer desks are practical and built for efficiency.

The Secretary Desk

The perfect combination of function and form, secretary desks feature a drop-down surface that when closed hides work in progress. Secretary desks are typically smaller in size, allowing them to fit into spaces large and small. The Amish Deluxe Secretary Desk with Doors is topped with a lovely bookcase.

 The Standing Desk

A commitment to staying healthy is built into the design of standing desks. Standing desks allow you to burn calories and improve circulation while you work. The Amish Bradford Stand Up Writing Desk adjusts to allow you to work while sitting or standing.

The Armoire Desk

Shutting the doors of an armoire desk creates a sleek, clutter-free office space. These desks are space savers because they use horizontal, rather than vertical space. The armoire desk is designed to hold all computer equipment while providing a comfortable work space. The Amish Mt. Eaton Computer Armoire Desk is a beautiful, handcrafted cabinet with a complete built-in work station.

The Writing Desk

Originally, writing desks were used to write letters by hand. Modern writing desks provide a stylish, minimal work station for laptops and notes. They are often used in home offices, foyers, and hallways. They also make great candidates for reception areas or lobbies. The Amish Shakespeare Writing Desk offers a positively inspirational design.

The Roll Top Desk

The solution to quickly tidying up a work space is found within the roll top desk. This old-fashioned style is revered for its pull-down top that conceals clutter in a hurry. With storage features like cubby holes, slots, and small drawers, roll top desks provide a place for everything. The Amish Berkley Roll Top Desk is perfect for staying organized.

The Partner Desk

Partner desks join two workspaces with a desk in the middle. Built for two people to face each other while working, they are a great option for collaborative environments. Ample storage is provided with the addition of storage drawers, cabinets, and shelves. The Amish Bridgeport Partner Desk with Optional Three Piece Hutch offers plenty of file and document storage space.
