Desks & computer desks

Whether you’re working from home, unlocking new game levels or putting in hours at the office, desks and computer desks are essential for tackling tasks and we have lots to choose from. We even have standing desks to keep your body moving by allowing you to change your position from sitting to standing throughout the day.

Turning desks into tailored workspaces

The right prerequisites for productive work aren’t something we take lightly. Which is why we make it easy to adjust an ergonomic working height, form timely desk constellations, or simply find a handy deskside hook for your bag.

A wardrobe to study closely

A study space doesn’t have to be big to do the job. Or take a big bite out of your budget. With a TORALD desk – with all you need, and only that – it doesn’t even have to take up room in any of your rooms.

How high should a desk be?

The standard height for a computer desk is between 50-70 cm. Within this range, most people should be able to find a height that fits.

Depending on how tall you are, and what kind of desk chair you use, you can determine which height is most comfortable for you. A few general guidelines for a good desk height are:

  • When sitting down, the desk should reach up to your elbows. You should be able to comfortably rest your arms on the surface in a roughly 90-degree angle.
  • Underneath the desk, you should have roughly 35-40 cm from the top of your knees to the bottom of the desk. And from the bottom of the desk to the floor it should be roughly 60 cm.
  • Remember that your height and your sitting position might influence your optimal desk height, but since ergonomics can go a long way in supporting your body and warding off fatigue, it’s worth spending a little time on
  • Try sitting by a desk or dinner table and measure the height to make a calculated choice.

What type of desks can I find at IKEA?

Everyone’s work, hobby and study are slightly different. Our desks reflect that very diversity, designed for different needs and preferences. At IKEA you’ll find gaming desks optimized for a gamer set-up, ergonomic office desks, space-saving corner desks and everything in between.

Many of our desks are height-adjustable, meaning you can switch between standing and sitting throughout the day. Other desks have collapsible table tops, allowing you to adjust the surface space if your project gets messy with papers and stationery. Small desks for children are designed to inspire creativity and help with homework, while storage desks with drawers make organizing a breeze.

From rustic wood to glossy white, there’s a desk for every style, purpose and project. Productivity has never felt more comfortable.
