Desks in the study room used to be designed mainly for reading and writing text on paper. A comfortable desk should have a well lit, spacious flat surface to place our stationery and paper/books.
The design of a comfortable desk has evolved with the development of computers. We now have to consider whether the desk is close to the socket, whether the light is going to reflect on the monitor… and what is expected to be on our desk is no longer just pencil and paper, but also another common medium for recording text – our keyboard.
I always clean up my desktop to make sure there is enough space right in the middle to place my 15.5″ laptop.
