Office Depot Tip: When making a decision about the right computer desk to buy, first consider who will be using it and then how often and what the wear and tear might be.
For a student's room: Choose a computer desk that's easy to clean such as a washable surface with lots of storage and a desk that is on the smaller side due to having to fit into a bedroom or dorm room. Surfaces that are laminate or melamine can be a great option so that they clean up like new.
For an executive, something that looks rich like solid wood or glass to impress anyone who visits is a good option. An executive's desk isn't going to take the wear and tear that a home office or student's computer desk might take.
For a home computer desks are regularly used by multiple members of a family and are often within reach of small children. Choose something with lockable doors that's also not difficult to keep clean. An armoire desk, a roll top desk or desks with lockable credenza are all good options. This way, you can lock up items that are not meant for everyone's eyes or fingers. Choose something that's easy to clean as well.
