If you work, you know that many things depend on your working place. Those are your emotional condition, your health, both physical and mental, and your productivity which results in more or fewer earnings. Thus, a comfortable working place is a must to succeed and feel fine.
Your working place is your desk. Thus, it is crucial to have the most convenient desk ever. Do you know how to choose one correctly? The best manufacturer would allow you to build one directly on their website, online. A special tool called desktop builder will help you to do so.
How to use a desk builder
A desk builder is extremely easy to use. You move to the page with the tool. There, you see your screen divided into two parts. In the left part, your choices will be displayed and the price for the current desk version. In the right place, you will be displayed desk components. You can choose them one by one by clicking on them.
For example, you start with the lifting frame. When you click on the needed option, it will be moved to the left part of the screen, and its cost will be displayed. Then, you choose the desktop. It will be moved to the left side of the screen, and its cost will be added to the cost of the frame. Like this, step-by-step, you can build your preferred desk.
It might happen that the desk size, shape, colour, or any other feature will not be the one that you have expected. In such a case don’t hesitate to ask a company representative whether they can provide you a customized alternative. In most cases, it is possible, and you get a chance to get the desk of your dreams.
When the online version of the desk is ready, you will be invited to move on with accessories. You can choose some of them if you need them.
Adjust the desk correctly
Now when your perfect desk is built and finally has arrived to you, it is time to set it up. Only then, you can count on the best experience from using it and the best results.
Check what height is needed for you to work comfortably in both a standing and a sitting position. In whatever position you are working, consider the following:
- Your elbows shall be bent at a 90-degree angle. The hands shall rest on the desk top.
- The feet shall rest completely on the floor when you are in a sitting position. In a standing position, your knees shall be slightly bent to allow you to shift from one leg to another.
- The back and neck shall be supported in their natural positions.
- The computer monitor shall be installed at the level of your eyes. If it is impossible to achieve, you need to get an adjustable PC monitor support.
Equip the desk with the needed accessories. Depending on your needs, you might choose a document organizer, a pen holder, a drawer for standing desks, a CPU holder, and similar. All the needed accessories you can choose directly on the website where you have purchased your desk.
Don’t forget about such items as a chair and an ergonomic carpet. The chair will take care of your back, neck, and arms when you are working in a sitting position while the carpet will help your feet to avoid fatigue and pains.
Finally, don’t forget that it is more beneficial if you make exercises during your working day. Only then, you will be able to appreciate all the potential of your new desk.
