There key functions are to keep your working area tidy and clutter free whilst also holding all of your most used items in one convenient easy to reach place.
What should you consider before purchasing a desk tidy?
Number of Compartments - The number of compartments you need your desk tidy to have will be driven by a few factors. Firstly, how much room do you have on your desktop? There is no use buying a large tidy if you only have a small desk corner in which to fit it into. You also need to consider what you intend to keep in your desk tidy. Lots of small shallow compartments are ideal for pins, clips and rubber bands but pretty useless for pens and pencils so keep in mind the potential usage before buying. The good news is that there is a great selection to choose from so whatever your requirements there will be plenty of desk tidy options for you.
Material - Typically desk tidies are made from either plastic or metal which normally takes the form of a mesh. There is little to choose between the two options as both are manufactured to offer a sturdy and long lasting product. Plastic offers a wider choice of colour options as metal mesh desk tidies are generally limited to silver, grey or black. Metal does however offer a more industrial look which is popular in many offices currently.
Desktop Sets - Many desk tidies form part of a desktop accessory set that allows you to co-ordinate your stationery items. Generally the sets will include desk tidies and letter trays as well as items such as staplers, hole punches, and magazine holders. Look out for top brands such as Rexel , Sigel and Leitz who all have their own range of accessories.
