Buying Children’s Desks for a New School BuildingBuying Children’s Desks for a New School Building

The construction project for your new school is finally almost deemed complete. Boasting a practical division of facilities, organized classroom structures, and a selection of furniture, all you’re missing now are some sturdy and comfortable desks.

Elements of an Efficient Desk

As you’re looking for new desks, there are certain factors you must take into consideration to maximize students’ educational experience. Although a desk may look like a pretty basic piece of furniture, if it doesn’t offer the right support and flexibility, this can be distracting for students, especially children.

A great classroom desk should have:

  • Ample leg space. To accommodate children of varying heights, desks should have adjustable legs and offer an open space.

  • A durable build. School desks must be robust enough to endure pressure and include laminated tops that can be easily maintained.

  • Convenient compartments. School desks must also include built-in drawers and/or sufficient space for students to place their books and study items in.

  • Leveling features. The leveled operation of a desk on an uneven surface can be ensured with swivel glides.

  • Collaborative learning. Differently shaped desks can be pushed together so classmates can work in groups, while for an individual learning experience, such desks can be separated and aligned in rows facing the teacher.

Any desk’s work surface should feature a high quality construction with sealed edges so as to help prevent warping. Well-built desks also offer a quiet operation to avoid having any classroom disruptions due to movement.

A Practical Assortment

Whether you’d like to keep the desks in your new school uniform throughout all children’s classrooms, or would like to feature different types of desks, at School Outlet, you can find the largest variety available on the market. Some of the types of desks we have on stock include:

  • Chair desks
  • Combo desks
  • Cooperative learning desks
  • Lift lid desks
  • Open front school desks
  • Study desks
  • Two pupil desks

If you would like to have a functional desk that comes with a chair to make for an individual workspace, our chair desks and combo desks are perfect for having an all-in-one option. Both left-handed and right-handed students can be accommodated with the different variations of these desks. They come with steel supported backs that allow for flexing the seat back, too.

Teamwork Motivation

Our lift lid and open front school desks make for excellent alternatives for offering storage space for books and study materials. You can encourage teamwork and effective group projects among young students with two pupil desks or by easily combining two or more desks together thanks to their maneuverable and symmetrical composition.

For a unique take on group work, our cooperative learning desks are an excellent way to encourage healthy movement among young students as they learn. These trapezoid-top desks can be grouped in a way that allows children to move freely. Some are equipped with book bins and come with backpack hangers, as well.
