How To Create A Professional Desk Configuration

Medina Desk
When the average office desk won't cut it, furniture shoppers are forced to go custom. That being said, with a little preparation and know how, the task can be effectively accomplished without breaking the budget. In today's post we'll teach you how to create a professional desk configuration using popular components from the Mayline Medina collection. Enjoy!

Medina Desk ReturnWe chose the Medina office furniture collection because it's been 2016's best seller. This full service furniture line from Mayline offers trend setting desks, conference tables, and reception stations needed to furnish all your professional interiors. Medina desks and workstations are available in a wide range of attractive finish options to help shoppers personalize their space.

Medina CredenzaAll professional office makeover projects start with effective space planning. Before you rush out and select a new office desk for the home or business, take the time to measure your workspace. Take note of entry ways, windows, and power outlets that will affect the functionality of your desired layout.

Medina File PedestalWith dimensions on hand, you'll be able to choose between 2 main office desk sizes. The Medina collection offers both 63" and 72" wide desks that should work well for just about any interior over 7.5' wide.

As you'll likely need a bit more operational space, consider adding a universal bridge. This is an extension or return that can work effectively on the right or left hand side of your desk. The Medina collection offers 48.5" wide returns that really come in handy.

Medina U Shaped Desk ConfigurationWith your stand alone desk and return, you will have formed an L shaped workstation that can be used along walls or in corner applications. To further enhance your layout, a 63" or 72" wide credenza can be added to form a full U shape. In 2016, U shaped desk configurations have been the preferred choice of business executives.

No workspace is complete without the right combination of storage products needed to stay organized. Lucky for you, the Medina offers plenty of solutions to choose from. Start by maximizing your floor space and adding an overhead hutch unit. Medina hutches like the MNH63 and MNH72 models can be mounted directly over your credenza to simultaneously improve workspace appeal. Matching lateral file cabinets, executive storage cabinets, and desk pedestals are also available to improve organizing potential. These units can be placed underneath your desk surface, credenza, or placed along walls to pull the elements of your interior together.

Ergonomic Monitor ArmLast but certainly not least, to make your desk configuration the best it can be, you'll need 3 key ergonomic products. The first is a dual screen ergonomic monitor mount. With a dual monitor mount you'll be able to raise your computer screens up to eye level and reduce eye strain while simultaneously increasing usable desk surface space. Secondly, you'll want to add a sit to stand keyboard tray as they promote continuous movement in the workplace, improve blood flow, and reduce fatigue. Last but not least, an under-mount CPU holder will help protect your important digital files against theft and water damage. A CPU holder will also help to create more knee space under your desk. Brands like Symmetry Office and ESI Ergonomic Solutions offer all 3 of these essential ergonomic accessories.

By now you should have a full U shaped desk configuration from the Mayline Medina collection. Your station should be outfitted with the top 3 ergonomic accessories needed to reach peak performance levels in the workplace. If you're looking for additional ways to improve your office interior, consider the addition of a new ergonomic office chair, as well as a task light and folding white board cabinet.
