    Desks are typically no more than 30" high..the thickness of THIS top is about 2"..and the drawer FRONT about 4"..( leaving about 3" interior) ... so the total thickness from front view is no more than 6"... leaving enough leg room....

    can the guard be horizontal? i think if you have one above 6" from top...and one at bottom...6" from bottom...?....vertical is too "prison" like...horizontal more modern...if u need more..spaced 4" apart...maybe they are 3/4" x 3/4" sq...but become thinner 3/8" x 3/8" around corner...as a transition...? hope that helps...but not knowing the codes or requirments hard to "cold design" ....cheers- rich

    Don't send creative energy out the window. It may seem like a lovely idea to put your desk facing a window with a view — but before you settle in, consider the feng shui concept of "commanding position." By placing your desk in a commanding position — that is, a place where you can see most of the room (including the doorway), you are likely to feel more secure and in charge of your space. Also, remember the primary purpose of your room — is it to relax or daydream? If so, placing your desk directly in front of a window may be ideal; but if your goal is to work efficiently, another layout may work better for you. Still want to take advantage of the view? Try positioning your desk with the window to one side, so you can look out the window when you need a break.

    Seen from the inside, the same corner window serves a small office space, giving the occupant a great panorama of the surrounding trees. A very nice distraction indeed.

    Home office for two please so we can work comfortably at home. We only need space for two big screens and two comfortable office chairs.
