Let's be honest, studying is something many of us dread. Thinking back to all those endless all-nighters we pulled to study for our finals and get those pesky assignments done reminds me how my back will never be the same. We can all agree that those long hours we spent at a desk hurt our backs. Considering how long we spend time on our desks, especially when working from home (WFH) has become a norm, it is essential to find a study desk that would help set the right ambiance and posture and cater to our personalized needs and preferences.
As there are many different study tables, from the different materials to other shapes and sizes, finding the right one for you can be challenging. So here is a list of the top 10 best study desks in Malaysia for the year 2022 that we have compiled to help you a little. But first, here are some helpful tips on what to consider when finding your perfect study desk.
How To Find the Best Study Table That Suits Your Personalized Needs And Preferences
Size and Shape
The shape and size of your table would affect the overall aesthetics of your place. Depending on the size of your area, a study table should match your room size to avoid it looking too out of place. A general rule of thumb is to get a linear table if one has a smaller room, while U-shaped or L-shaped tables are more suited for bigger rooms. In addition, a wall-mounted table would serve ideal for a matchbox room.
A table's ideal height should be one where your forearm can comfortably rest and maintain at 70 to 135 degrees to facilitate good posture. As reading about this may seem a little overwhelming, here is a table ergonomics calculator to make life a little easier.
A study table with drawers would provide convenience as one's daily items are only a drawer pull away. One thing to consider is the durability of those drawers as the weight of the items we plan to put in them may be too much. However, if you're a minimalistic person, and let's be honest with modernization, we only use our laptops, then you can opt for a sleek drawer-less table.
