What is the best way to measure the space to fit an office desk in?
Measure both the width and the depth of the floor space where you'd like to put an office desk. The easiest way is to use a measuring tape. Hold the start of the tape down at the edge of the area, and let it run to the other edge. If the distance is larger than what you can stretch to with your arms, ask a friend to assist, or divide the distance up into multiple parts. This can be done by either holding the tape down halfway and continuing running it while letting the first end go, or by marking how far you have measured on the floor or wall, and start a new measurement. If you would not like to draw on your floor, you can position a pointy object like a pencil there instead. Don't forget to avoid dead places where the piece of furniture won't go like electric sockets. Also it may be necessary to take the height of the space and the item into account wherever the ceiling is low like spaces under the stairs.

From the history of furniture: Desks And Secretaries Part 2

Michael Angelo Pergolesi produced a work on Deco- ration," which also showed many furniture designs, and he was distinguished for the exquisite decorations which he painted on such furniture as the Adam brothers de signed. He dedicated his book in the following high- sounding terms: " To the Memory of the Late Most High and Puissant Prince, Hugh Percy, Duke of Northumberland, avIio was a Patron of the Arts, and to whose Virtues this work is Dedicated by His Most Grateful and Humble Servant." The book contains mm over seventy large pages of the most exquisite and dainty designs for ceilings, wails, chimney-pieces, furni ture, frames, etc., and is a mine for those in search of beautiful ornament.

In France also many books on furniture and decora tion were produced. These were brought to England, and from them the English makers drew many choice designs which they copied bodily or adapted to suit their customers. After such a list as this, it does not seem strange that we made good work. Among the illustra tions in these books one is rather surprised to find, com- parath'ely, so few desks and secretaries. Many pieces of furniture for strictly bedroom use, like dressing-tables and stands, have in them a drawer which is called a "furniture drawer," in the description. In this drawer, which was cut up into many compartments, were spaces for pens, ink, writing paper, pins, wax, wafers and all the things which went to make up the writing parapher nalia, before the days of the fountain pen. So much furniture, other than what it appeared to be, was made during the eighteenth century that in many of them could be tucked what was needful to indite a billet-doux, or receipt a due bill.

Questions and answers

How much space do I have to leave in front of an office desk?

Finding the right place for an office desk needs more space than just the size of the item itself, as you will also need about 50-76 cm behind the chair. Keeping this area free means that you can push the chair back to stand up, or swivel to access a cabinet or bookshelf behind you. So altogether you will need an area 100 cm deep free in front of an office desk. For example, 55 cm deep office desks would need a 155 cm deep space in total. It doesn't mean that the room behind the chair is dead space, though, as it can double as the room you need to access drawers, shelves or a filing cabinet.

How can I coordinate colours?

The colour scheme in one's room can be a bit accidental, but it has a great effect on the feelings you get from your space. The two main things to consider for everything colour is balance and associations. Balance means that the colours should be coordinated in some way, so that the room looks like a unit instead of a random collection of elements. Usual techniques to achieve this are considering a colour wheel, and selecting colours that are either quite close to each other (colours that are only different in intensity of lightness do go together, but slight variations in tone or hue can also be fine), or quite far, for example on different halves of the wheel (complementary colours like blue and yellow). Associations with and emotions connected to colours are also important. In all likelihood these emotions are cultural and learnt, which means that they can be quite different in different cultures or for different individuals. The associations can even be contradictory, which makes it even more difficult to use them as a guide. Blue is often associated with productivity, but also calmness, stability and even sadness. Green is clearly the colour of nature, and is considered to evoke safety, luck and envy (though in other cultures envy is yellow instead). Pink is thought to evoke kindness, nurturing, romance and calmness, but it was the masculine colour of choice for clothing over many decades. Red is thought of as the colour of friendship, energy, leadership, desire and anger, which is a very wide range of emotions. But it is clear that in nature, it means danger or importance, so you probably need to put it next to a neutral colour to allow the brain to rest. These emotions are so varied that these guidelines all seem to boil down to just this: pause and consider what the colour means for you.

Our philosophy

We want to allow everyone to live comfortably even if they only have a small space they call home. We search the Internet for thousands of desks, cabinets, bookcases, storage units, beds, tables, sofas and more by size, to find just the right piece for you to go under the stairs to finally get a practical office, or to find that extra long bed that is still narrow enough to squeeze through the door. From the kitchen to the living room, don't live around furniture - have furniture that lives with you.

Did you know? We are also present in many other regions. You can look for shallow 55 cm deep office desks in Australia, shallow 22 inch deep office desks in Canada, shallow 22 inch deep office desks in the US or shallow 55 cm deep office desks in Ireland.
