How To Choose The Right Student Desk in Australia

Student desks are one of the most important features of any educational setting. There are a variety of things you should take into consideration before choosing your next classroom desk purchase. Often, just learning about all your options is the biggest thing. However, thinking about build quality, material and shape is also a great place to start. A computer desk has different features to an exam table, so you need to choose the right desk for your specific needs. With a flexible range of primary school and high school desk options, Empire Office Furniture is here to help you choose the best school desks and tables for your classroom layout. Read below to discover more about the different school desk design options to consider.

The Shape of the Desk

School desks are made in a variety of shapes, including rectangular, trapezoid, semi-circular, and more. The shape of your desk will depend on how many students you need to accommodate as well as their ages and sizes. Rectangular desks are great for small classrooms with limited space, while larger classrooms may benefit from trapezoid-shaped desks which provide more space between students. Semi-circular desks are perfect for group work or collaboration activities while square or round tables can be used in multipurpose areas such as libraries or cafeterias.

Material Selection

When choosing the materials for your student desks, durability is key. You want to select materials that will withstand everyday wear and tear but not break the bank either. Depending on your budget, you can choose from a variety of materials like metal and compact laminate which can provide a long-lasting desk solution that also looks good in any learning environment.

Size Matters

Consider the size of each desk when selecting furniture for your school’s classrooms. It’s important to select student desks that fit comfortably within each classroom while still giving students ample space to do their school work. After all, if students feel too squashed in then they may be distracted by their peers instead of focusing on their learning! For primary school students, select smaller sized desks while high school desks need to be larger to ensure they have enough space. Keep in mind that adjustable height furniture can also be beneficial if you’re dealing with multiple age groups in one room.


From exams to group work, there are a variety of school activities that require different styles of desk. Folding desks, for example, are great for setting up exam halls, offering an option that is easy to pack down and store when not in use. Similarly, adjustable-height desks are perfect for long-term use where students can extend the desk legs as they grow. Desks with castor wheels also bring another dimension to the classroom, and are great for grouping individual tables together during group tasks to encourage collaboration and creative thinking. Consider the type of activity you imagine your students doing at their desks and let that guide the decision-making process.

Why Does Quality Matter With Classroom Desks?

Avoiding the repeated cost of new resources is always a priority for educational institutions. There is nothing worse than purchasing classroom furniture, only to quickly realise that it is not going to make it through the whole year. Below, we break down the features of a quality desk and explain why each of them are important to create better learning environments.

Comfort & Ergonomics

Quality student desks should be designed with comfort as a top priority. One way to achieve comfort in the classroom is to make sure that all the desks have adjustable legs, so students can find the right height for their individual needs. This is especially important if your classroom has students of varying ages and sizes or if the classroom is used by different age groups across the school day. Additionally, ergonomic features can help reduce fatigue while studying or writing.

Durability & Design

When choosing student desks, it’s important to make sure that they are durable and will last for many years. Laminate and steel frames offer superior durability over cheaper alternatives like particle-board. Additionally, design features like drawers can add convenience and encourage organisation among students who might otherwise let their textbooks pile up on the desktop. All these features combined will ensure your school tables and desks continue to look and function great, even after years of use!

Functionality & Flexibility

Finally, when selecting quality desks for your classroom it’s important to consider functionality and flexibility. For example, some models feature wheels, making them easy to move around as needed without dragging them across the floor. This makes rearranging classrooms an easy task.

What Are The Different Types Of Student Desks?

When choosing your next set of classroom desks, it’s always worth understanding what’s out there. As educational furniture continues to evolve and innovate, there are perhaps more options available than you once thought. Below, we investigate the different models available, and how they may work in your classroom.

Traditional Desks

When most people think of a student desk, they likely imagine a classic wooden or laminate surface. These are some of the most common types of desks used in classrooms because they offer plenty of space for students to take notes. They usually come in a variety of shapes and sizes so that you can select one that best fits your learning environment.

Adjustable Desks

Another type of desk that is becoming more popular in classrooms is adjustable desks. These are great because they facilitate learning across different age groups as the desks can be adjusted as needed. Adjustable desks also come in many different sizes, shapes and colours, so you have plenty of choices when it comes to selecting one that fits your classroom space. From a small white desk to a large table with a colour top, adjustable student desks are perfect for customisation.

Collaborative Desks

Collaborative desks are quickly becoming some of the most sought-after choices for classrooms because they promote teamwork among students. These types of desks typically feature rounded corners or multiple chairs attached together so that several students can work together on projects or assignments without having to worry about taking up too much room. Individual desks with castor wheels can also quickly transform into collaborative desks, and offer a highly versatile and efficient alternative to larger desk options.
