Executive office desks can be custom ordered in numerous sizes, shapes and styles. These are perfect for in management offices, for business owners, CEO’s, upper level management in corporations and businesses big and small where good impressions need to be made. A typical executive desk set will include matching storage cabinets, hutch and other accessories to make the executive office complete.
Normally an executive desk will be purchased as an entire matching set. This helps to provide adequate work flow for paper work as well as space for hosting meetings with customers, clients and staff. Most executive desks are installed into small business to corporate level offices. These desks create a private space while still making a bold impression on visitors to the office.
Executive Desk Accessories to Consider
It is common to install a stand-alone U-Shaped executive desk into an office however to keep the room clean and clear of any clutter that might accumulate in your office there are some important accessories to consider. Additionally these items can help to improve daily workflow and improve productivity.
The main desk can include a bow front to make meetings with clients and staff more productive.
A credenza desk with hutch along the back side of the executive desk lends the high end executive feel most people are looking for.
A sit-stand electronic height adjustable bridge between the main desk and credenza can be considered or if the office is large enough, installed as an additional workspace where executive level staff can place their laptops. The option to be sitting or standing throughout the course of a work day can improve productivity and provide a more productive environment to work in.
Task lights can be mounted below hutches to provide lighting and work as an accent in the office.
Keyboard trays can be installed below the desktop which help to extend the desktop and the amount of space on the desk for paper work.
Drawers and adequate storage in the office should not be over-looked. Desks can quickly become cluttered without adequate space if the desk does not have enough drawer based storage.
Lateral Filing Cabinets can be added to the office to provide executives with a place to file their paperwork. Additionally a bookcase hutch can be placed on 2 drawer lateral filing cabinets while larger lateral filing cabinets are generally stand-alone pieces.
Storage cabinets make a great place to store anything the executive might use but wants to keep cleanly stored away when not in use. A bookcase hutch can also be installed on top of the storage cabinet to provide more storage.
Many executive offices include round meeting tables for 4 to 6 people.
Wardrobe cabinets are perfect for making a space to hang coats or more formal business attire for meetings.
Overhead storage cabinets can be mounted to studs in walls to provide storage space for books, binders and other items that are better stored out of sight.
Paper-flows can be installed under a hutch to offer space to neatly store paperwork for current projects.
A tack board can be installed onto a hutch to work as an accept piece or as a space to pin up often referenced documents.
A highly ergonomic and comfortable chair should be considered for all executive spaces. A high end desk paired with a low end chair will not give a good impression. A good set of chairs make great accent pieces to a room and should be comfortable for sitting in.
Executive Desk Configurations
Most executive desks are configured in a U-Shape however some may be setup as a straight typical writing desk with credenza behind the executive or in an L-Shape. Ultimately, this will vary depending on the dimensions of the room and the planned usage for the space.
When setup as a U-Shape there is typically a bow front main desk, a bridge to the right or left side of the executive and a credenza desk with hutch in back. This setup can be done with a variety of laminates and hard woods and can combine accents like glass doors, task lights and other decorative pieces to help create the style you are attempting to achieve which could include modern, contemporary or a traditional look.
Height Adjustable Executive Desks
The option to install a height adjustable workstation for executives is becoming increasingly popular. In most cases a height adjustable space is installed as a separate piece in addition to a full executive desk or as a modular piece, normally the bridge of the executive desk. These height adjustable workstations provide superior support to executives and allow them to sit or stand throughout the course of a work day. Ultimately, this allows more comfort while at work and the ability to get more work done in a regular work day.
Types of Executive Desks
There are many types of executive desks to choose from and these custom desks can be ordered in just about any style or configuration you might need.
U-Shape Executive Desks - These are the most common type of executive desk. With this type of desk, the work surface wraps around to create a workspace that surrounds the executive. It is most common to have 2 sets of drawers on this type of desk along with a hutch behind the executive and additional matching furniture in the office to give the space a full and complete feel.
L-Shape Executive Desks - Less common but still an option and in most cases a credenza with hutch is still installed behind the executive. An L-Shaped workstation is commonly installed into larger offices where large amounts of storage will be placed along the back wall of the office.
Traditional Executive Desks - A traditional executive desk is normally in a cherry, oak or mahogany finish. These desks in most cases include a bow-front main desk and work space and a detached storage credenza desk with a hutch directly behind the executive. This particular setup lends a level of class and luxury that is un-matched by other setups.
Modern Executive Desks - Most commonly a modern executive desk will consist of a dark walnut (close to black) finish and might include white laminates, frosted glass accent pieces and high end stainless steel or silver drawer pulls.
Solid Wood Executive Desks - Still a very popular option however less common than it’s laminate counterpart. Solid wood desks are very heavy but can far outlast any other desk and be refinished as time goes on and small repairs need to be made. Solid wood desks are generally installed into very high end and high class work spaces where only the top of the line will do. Many of these desks will include accents that can’t be found with standard laminate desks.
Wood Veneer Executive Desks - These are a common alternative to a solid wood desk and offers a large number of wood grain and solid surface finish options.
Luxury Executive Desks - These desks are no expense spared and usually consist of a full matching furniture set with high end guest chairs, heavy duty office chairs and accents in all of the right places. A luxury desk set can be customized with your choice of finish, thick tops and even built in seamless modular height adjustable work surfaces.
Small vs Large Executive Desks
Executive desks don’t have to be huge, in many cases they may be small and compact. A jr executive desk might consist of a small main desktop and a small storage credenza with a hutch while still offering the numerous accents you might desire in an executive desk set. Sizes of desktops, bridges and storage credenzas can all be customized to meet the needs of your space. So in many cases lengths and depths of workstations can be drastically altered to create the exact workspace you need.
Some people find that a large oversized desk might be way too much room for them and ultimately end up as a mass of clutter and dis-organized paper work which in a smaller space they are more frequently forced to put away. So whether the desk is big or small, each has it’s advantages and though most people go straight for a large desk, sometimes there are advantages to having a smaller desk. The best executive desk is squarely determined based on needs of form and function in your office space.
Custom Executive Desks
Ultimately, the choice is yours when it comes to an executive desk. When we are speaking in terms of high end manufacturing and desking for executives, almost every option available to you will have customizations and accents that you can make to the desk and usually receive shipped direct to your business in 3-5 days. Some desk setups may take longer in terms of weeks for custom manufacturing which largely depends on the materials and manufacturer you choose to create your desk.
When selecting your desk, it is advised to have a professional provide you with a 2D floorplan of your room along with 3D renderings of the finished space. Without laying out the entire room you may over or under buy where your room may have too much or too little furniture. Finding a happy medium where the room is full with 36 inch walk spaces is the best option and will lend the most when creating your executive office suite.
