Any office whether its your home or corporate work place, for working with proper concentration and productivity, you need a proper chair and the desk that helps you maintain the right posture. While buying the proper desk for office especially for programming, you need to have a proper desk and in this post we shall run down to few of the best desks available for your home-office setup.
The best ergonomic desk for yourself should have proper height. I suggest the one that will keep your computer or laptop monitor right in front of your eyes i.e you don’t have to turn your eye balls or lean down or up your neck to watch what’s on screen.
Also, the keyboard area needs to be at the place such that your hands stay ‘L’ positioned. Same goes for your leg, your chair must have height that your leg stay perfectly positioned on the cushion area of the chair and stays inclined in ‘L’ shape and your back should stay straight at the same time. You can read more about how the programmer’s chair should be in this post.

3 Best Desks for Programmer’s Office and Home Setup
Disclaimer – The below listed desks are my own personal opinions. I am in no ways responsible for your defected purchases or late deliveries.
You’ll have to assemble the legs to the top part, to get it stand and ready for work. Don’t worry the process is pretty simple and all the instructions are explained in very well manner in the guide that comes with it.
You can either use this desk for your work or just for the stuff to keep on it. I recommend buying 2 of those for fitting in your large office. That would make the setup look really good and also comfortable to work for programming.
Coming to the drawer, it is the slider drawer with the wheels mechanism. Although its height is not adjustable, it should be good in terms of ergonomics for people with 5 to 7 inch of height. Ofcourse you can adjust height of your chair for better sitting posture.
The only con of this table is, it comes with no extra drawers other than the one for keyboard but the keyboard drawer is nice and roomy to keep other things (notebook or pen).
Well, this might be the best ready made easy to setup desk for your work but building one on your own gives you an opportunity to customize as per your requirements. Refer this article on lifehacker and get started with building your own desk for computers.
On the right side it has a shallow compartment to keep your files and it is perfectly sized to fit in your duffle bag. Below that there are 2 drawers one is a standard sized and another is a bigger one which can store all your pile of files and also you can keep it orgranized inside.
The middle part gives perfect room for your legs and you’ll feel very comfortable stretching your legs there.
On the left hand side, there’s a tray for all your gadgets to place. It is soft cloth covered tray which keeps all your devices safe and organized. Also you will find there the USB docking station to plug the chargers of your devices. Good thing is, the gadgets tray and docking station are placed at perfect place which keeps all your gadget wires away from your actual working area.
It also has a roomy compartment with the glass door to store your other things. This table does not have a seperate keyboard drawer but it provides enough room on top to settle your monitor and keyboard. Conclusively, this is the perfect L shaped table for your office with enough leg room to program comfortably in your office for longer time.
The multiple compartments and seperate sliding drawer for keyboard makes it the best desk for programmers. Overall size of this desk is very small and hence it occupies very little space in your room. There are 2 open compartments to store your essentials and you get one standard size drawer to keep the things in safe. The desk area is pretty good to settle your computer monitor and CPU side by side. However you may have to adjust a little if you have a bigger display than 32 inches.
As I said earlier, it is the perfect desk for your home-office for programming, however you can also use it for keeping your books and place some showpieces on it as it also has an 2 level book shelf. For the price that it comes for, I think it provides the best value for the money and it is the best desk for people who are looking for compact sized adequately roomy desk for their home-office setup.
So these are my most recommended desks to the programmers. They are ergonomic, well-built and perfect for prolonged computer usage and keeping everything organized.
