The first and most important requirement for a corner glass computer desk is that you should really like it and fit perfectly into the interior. Otherwise, pay attention to more practical and less original models.
In the room of any urban style, a computer glass table will look not just appropriate - prestigious and expensive. And it doesn’t matter how much it actually costs - even simple, not “designer” and relatively inexpensive tables made of glass look status.
Glass computer desk is very original. Its surface with brilliance, cold, smooth, perfectly complements the interior in the styles of avant-garde, hi-tech, modern, techno.
Structures made of glass and metal can be played in a futuristic interior. The simplicity and conciseness characteristic of glass furniture are in harmony with minimalism.
Steampunk is not so popular style, requiring a thoughtful design solution, but such a table can fit into a fantastic setting.
As a rule, we choose an angular model due to its small size and functionality. Glass computer desks are compact, but functionality is not their strong point. They are inferior to brothers from more familiar materials in ergonomics. No impressive shelving - a superstructure of several shelves is possible, no drawers, and the lower filling is also shelves.
Such a table is hardly suitable for a workplace, at which you will spend 8 or more hours a day.
Glass is always cool - this feature of it can cause discomfort during prolonged use. Glass does not suppress sounds: in a small apartment everyone will know that you have decided, for example, to mourn over a computer.
By purchasing any glass furniture, whether it be a computer table, coffee table, TV stand, you are committed to maintaining perfect order and cleanliness. The smeared countertop with fingerprints and a dusty system unit under the transparent surface of comfort will not add.
Imagine how you will work, where you will store papers, disks, stationery. The capacity of the corner tables in comparison with the straight ones is greater, as a rule, all the necessary objects are located at arm's length.
But we must remember the limited capabilities of glass structures. The model itself cannot be big.
The choice is limited to compact and medium-sized options.
- Compact ones suggest that a person working at a computer will be facing a corner. These are tables with a diagonal arrangement. Under the countertop, they usually have several shelves where you can attach the system unit. Often there is a small add-in. Made of transparent or frosted glass, such an angled computer desk looks very elegant.
- With the increase in size and storage space becomes more. Among medium-sized models, there are tables with a diagonal-perpendicular arrangement - the user can fully deploy to one of the walls. They are often equipped with a whole block of lower shelves, which is located under the longer part of the countertop.
It is necessary to determine the place for the system unit, monitor, keyboard.
The simplest models of glass computer corner tables may not have space for the system unit. Think about where you will put it. Maybe you should immediately buy a visiting shelf. For some models, it comes with the kit.
The exit shelf is very convenient: the system unit can be put deeper without taking up space on the side.
Another common option - the system unit is placed on the bottom glass shelf.
Remember that the distance from the eyes to the monitor should be about 50 cm. If the tabletop is 60 cm or more wide, the monitor can be located directly on it. If the countertop is already, then there must be a stand under the monitor.
A sliding shelf for the keyboard is not found on all models and it is often made of plastic.
The fact is that plastic is much better than glass, dampens sounds, so if you want to reduce the "noise" of the work, look for just such a model.
Where to put?
Conventional corner computer desks are designed to stand in a corner and save space. A glass table is a choice in favor of originality of design, you can think about the original placement in the interior. The table can be placed in any part of the room, creating a working area.
Be sure to immediately consider connecting the computer to power.
The demanded material of the frame for glass tables is steel. Wood is rarely used. As a rule, to a wooden-glass table you can pick up a separate stand with drawers, hanging shelves. To complement the interior with a cabinet or TV stand, made in the same style. Such sets will refresh the eclectic and fusion interiors.
If the place for a table is defined, and it is unlikely that you will move it, pay attention to stationary models. If the location is in question, or you understand that you will have to move the table often - you need a mobile model. This is an easy-to-move roller skate.
An interesting solution for the interior in high-tech style will be the table "soaring in the air." The console model is mounted on the wall, and if it is located a little lower, it can well cope with the functions of a TV shelf.
It depends on you whether you will build the interior so that the corner table attracts attention, or if you prefer it to “dissolve”. Glass furniture never clutters the room, and a transparent corner design is quite capable of creating the illusion of free space.
Glass can also be opaque - opaque, colored. The most common color is, of course, black. Black glass countertops will look beneficial in the interiors of Art Nouveau, hi-tech, classics. However, if you are gravitating towards the avant-garde and futurism, it is worth setting the goal to find glass furniture in a bright palette.
In addition, the countertop does not have to be monophonic and uniform in texture. It is possible to apply drawings using photo printing, engraving, sandblasting. But, in any case, the glass should be shockproof, at least 10 mm thick. Then your computer desk will be completely reliable.
