HON BL Laminate Series Office Desk
If you need a simple, basic, and affordable office desk that gets the job done, then this desk by HON BL Laminate Series Office Desk is a good option to consider.
Who is this Product for?
When it comes down to it, this really is a basic office desk designed for nothing more than office work. It’s more or less just a really good-looking desk with plenty of space for all of your office hardware and equipment.
With your purchase, you get the four pieces of the desk, which are the back, the two sides, and the top, as well as the assembly instructions and the assembly hard liner.
Overview of Features
If what you are looking for is a very simplistic and old school style of work desk, then this one is definitely an option to keep in mind. In terms of the look, it’s more or less a box that is open at the front so you can put your legs underneath it. This desk comes in three different color options, all of which look like natural wood.
So, in the grand scheme of things, it’s not a bad looking desk at all. No, we would not say that it’s anything over overly fancy or stylish, but it’s definitely not ugly either.
Speaking of the natural wood look of it, although it looks like natural wood, which is not bad at all, it is of course not made out of real wood. This desk is made out of MDF or particleboard, which in essence is an engineered type of wood.
Keep in mind, if this desk were made out of real wood, it would cost way much more than it does. There is no chance that a desk that comes in at this price could ever be made out of real and solid wood.
Generally speaking, if you only need it for work, it doesn’t need to be made out of real wood, and quite honestly, if you are not an aficionado, you might not be able to tell with your naked eye anyway.
What we do have to say is that this desk is actually very durable. This unit is designed to withstand some serious punishment. Whether you’re just rough with it or you need to constantly move it around, this desk should be able to withstand even the harshest of punishment that you throw at it.
Going back to the point about being able to put your legs underneath it, one of the biggest selling points of this desk is the fact that it has plenty of legroom, which makes it ideal for larger people.
In terms of the size, this is a fairly large desk, and in fact it comes in many different options. The main one we’re reviewing today is 60 by 30 inches, but the largest one available is 72 by 36 inches. All of the options here are quite large, but the point is that if you get this desk, you’re going to have more than enough room for all of your monitors, papers, and more.
Something that you might like about this desk is that it is extremely easy to assemble. A single person can get this desk together in just a few minutes. Moreover, the metal-to-metal fastening system that this desk comes with make sure that it is extremely stable.
Now, what is quite convenient about this desk is that you can actually remove one of the sides and replace it with a corner unit, so you can combine it with a second desk to create an L-shaped desk for even more space.
Usually, we would include something like an assembly tutorial, but quite honestly there are only a few pieces to put together here, and the included instructions are quite clear.
- Easy assembly
- Looks decent
- Plenty of rom
- Lots of leg space
- Can be turned into a corner desk
- Ridiculously heavy
- Included screws may not be long enough for a secure assembly
This desk is very large and heavy. If you don’t need a huge desk and you want something that’s going to save space, an option we recommend is the CubiCubi 32” Computer Desk.
In the event that the desk reviewed here today is not stylish enough for you, a good option to consider is the Walker Edison Ellis Modern Glass Top L Shaped Corner Gaming Desk
The bottom line is that the HON BL Laminate Series Office Desk is simple, functional, durable, and affordable. If you just need a basic desk and you don’t want to spend a fortune, this is a prime option to keep in mind.
