Bench Desk FAQs
What size desk do I need?
- For permanent staff, allow a minimum of 120cm per person for a comfortable working space.
- For touchdown or temporary desks this can be reduced to 100cm. Either way, the depth of the bench desk should be between 150cm and 160cm.
- We suggest you allow 240cm x 160cm for 4 person desk, 360cm x 160cm for 6 people and 480cm x 160cm for an 8 person set up.
How many people can I seat at a bench desk?
Long office desks are practical enough to accommodate all sorts of seating arrangements - from an intimate group of 4 to large teams of up to 20 people, but the size of many offices means that arrangements of 4, 6 and 8 person large office bench desks are most popular.
Can I add more people to the desk at a later date?
Most of our office bench desks are modular, giving you the flexibility to easily add extra seating as needed. Modular desks can simply be added to at the ends with minimal disruption. For more information on future-proofing your office ask our experts on 020 8840 6298.
Can I split a bench desk into smaller desks at a later date?
Yes you can! And it’s easier than you might think to split an extra long desk. Simply order some extra legs or desk supports - these will allow you to divide up one long desk into several smaller desks for ultimate flexibility.
Can I choose a bespoke desk size?
With a large variety of standard sizes on offer, you might not need to, but if you want to fit your desk into an exact space it’s possible to have one made to size.
If you are looking for something different we can make a 3 person office desk to make your furniture really stand out.
Does a bespoke desk size cost more?
Bespoke sizing can be surprisingly affordable. Because all our quality bench desks are made to order, a small change to the size won’t usually make the desk a lot more expensive than a standard sized model.
