Desks are flat table surfaces used for doing work. Designed specifically for use in workplaces, home offices and schools, desks are sized for reading, writing, and/or computer use. Variations in desk designs may incorporate built-in storage above or below the work surface, while the most basic desks are reduced to just the flat table surface. Desks were traditionally built from wood, though today they are designed of metal, plastic, or glass.

How tall is a typical desk?

Desks have an average work surface height between 28”-30” (71-76 cm) from the floor.

How big is a desk?

Desks are designed with a range of styles and sizes with common overall widths between 30”-60” (76-152 cm) and depths between 20”-36” (51-91 cm).

What is the seat height of a desk chair?

Desk chairs, or office chairs, have seat heights that vary between users with standard seat heights that range from 16”-21” (41-53 cm).
