When I first saw the Sauder Arbor Valley Computer Desk with Hutch in Antiqued Black Paint, I asked myself the question, as I often do, whats different about this desk?
What struck me was the dozens of pieces that it had. As I studied the desk further, read the customer reviews and saw how other people used it, I realized that this desk has a feature not many others have: Customizable ability.
Not Just A Computer Desk With Hutch
While many desks, including this one, have a CPU cabinet to both hide and protect the tower, a slide out keyboard tray and a drawer large enough for files, this one has some thing else.
No, I’m not talking about the hutch with shelves for books, disks and software, although it certainly has that, what this desk has is several ways to finish it to meet your needs.
While normally the hutch would prevent me from recommending it for anything but a home office, (you don’t want to have your back to customers,) the hutch is easily removable. All you need is a bottom piece similar enough in color to lay underneath it, and you have both a hutch and a matching low eclectic bookshelf. I say ‘eclectic’ because with all the many types of shelves it has, it will be a stunning bookshelf.
Its dimensions of 57.36″ H x 62.21″ W x 23.5″ D means it can easily hold both a monitor and a printer with or without the hutch. You can also leave off the back privacy panel to make room for a shredder or to get to the cables easier. However, the privacy panel has a small shelf, making it just perfect for modems and routers.
Buy This Desk If…
- you are a person with enough space who enjoys putting things together according to your tastes.
- the antique black fits in with your existing decor. Careful because this is not just a black desk its an antique black desk or distressed black desk.
You do not see the fun of designing a desk to suit you. If you think things need only be assembled one way or no way, then you should probably look at a different desk.
Even though the desk is technically ‘black’, antique black does not look like contemporary black and will be sorely out of place among contemporary blacks.
My Final Verdict On this Sauder Computer Desk With Hutch
This is a sturdy well made desk with endless possibilities. The antique black is at home in many décors. Although it’s wonderful as is, you can customize it ever so slightly so it will accommodate the way you work and live.
A substantial, yet fun, desk like the Sauder Arbor Valley Computer Desk with Hutch in Antiqued Black Paint, needs a chair to go with it. And I recommend the Distinction Leather Semi-Attached Gooseneck Leather Chair (Swivel Tilt). The dark wood and leather back go extremely well with the antique styling of this desk.
