PC Desk Wanted - Childproof (door fronts to hide PC)

I am trying to find a PC desk with the following requirements:

Light wood/effect, Beech if possible.

Quite large as have a big tower PC and bits.

Not a corner desk.

Under £100.

Childproof so has doors (don't have to be able to lock them though), so hides the PC/printer.


I've scanned the internet pages of Staples, PC World, Argos, B&Q etc but no luck.

Please help ;-)

Hi,

Ikea

Good Luck!


A bit of a long round-trip to get stuck in narrow corridors with pushchairs getting wacked into the back of my legs :x

May be my last option though!

I posted a reply earlier to someone after a corner desk, the one I have from argos is also available as normal desk:

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/6210478.htm

As it's a modular desk you can add end pedestals to it, such as:

Scroll down the page of the desk and you will see all the options for end pedestals at the bottom. Just add what you want.

The units are quite deep, so should could be big enough for what you want.
The desk I have (corner with double cupboard and single cupbaord) is very nice, much better than it looks in the Argos pics.

Look at post number 1628.

Look through the forum above also, you may find others people have posted.

Interesting and nice setup (on OC forum), It would be great if I could do the corner desk solution but can't! I'll try and figure out how to fit everything together how I want it. Ideally I want the PC inside a cupboard so will check the dimensions etc, and probably have to cut a few holes in the back.

Thanks

(and hopefully won't have to go to Ikea :))

Just gone for the Argos desk, the dimensions seem to add up so here's hoping!

Will arrive on Wednesday.

Thanks for the advice :thumbsup:

Glad it fits what you wanted. Will have to post back when you get it set up. Out of interest, which parts did you go for ?

Hope the PC fits inside the cupboard, as you measured it I guess it should. They are quite deep, that was one thing that surprised me about the desk.

I also notice towards the end of that thread on OC forum (post 1811), someone is looking at getting the above desk, and putting the double cupboard under it (by not fitting the top to the cupboard). Interesting idea, may be useful if you need to save space !
#8
Yep my plan exactly, gone for 2 of the Morgan Beech Finish Single Door Cupboards, wanted a pedestal that locked but out of stock!
I am going to put both cupboards under the table at each end (hopefully) so leave the tops of the cupboards and hope they fit under and fix to the table too.

I'll report back :thumbsup:

Will be interesting to see if that works, can't see why not as it should fit under ok. May just need some sort of brackets to fix the cupboard to under the desk.
Only thing I was thinking is does it leave enough leg room ? not measured it so odn't know what it would give.
Guess you could leave 1 cupboard under the desk and the other next to it, if you have the room ?

Anyway, good luck with it. Hope it works out. I'm certainly glad I bought mine, so much bigger than my old desk, and the finish is very good for the price.

Received the desk and pedestals yesterday, so after a few hours last night I have managed to put both of them under the desk!
Leg room isn't too bad but there isn't enough room for a chair to fit in (unless I get a narrow chair! The width is just a bit smaller than the width of a pedestal so not too bad), my knees are under the desk fine and it isn't uncomfortable so I'm happy with this arrangement.

As for fixing the pedestals to the desk, they stick out a bit at the front, but only enough to fit more-or-less flush with the front of the desk anyway as this jutted out a bit - so doesn't look too odd.
I had to leave the tops off the pedestals and also decided to leave the backs off so cables can be run.
Yes had to use 4 small brackets to fit the pedestal sides to the desk, so nice and secure now! Also screwed through the side holes to fix the pedestals to the desk sides (unused for door hinges & holes at the back that allw units to be fixed together) so more stable now.

I only used one of the Pedestal shelfs, this also is bracket fixed (due to no back board present so nothing to stop it falling off!)

I suppose if a bit more DIY orientated could have made a neater job and possibly left the sides of the pedestals that are alongside the desk sides, but then would have had to modify the back etc to fit flush so didn't bother.

All in all its a nice desk and not going anywhere for a long time so happy with my new setup and the quality for this price :)

Thanks again for the recommendation Richierea.

Glad you got it sorted and like it :)

If you can get round to putting a picture up I would be quite interested in seeing it :thumbsup:
