Working from home leads to creating a space that reflects your personality and that includes a desk that fits your style. Whether you like simply, classic, flashy or modern, there's a desk styles available today.
When I converted a spare bedroom into my office space nearly 2 decades ago, I wanted a built-in desk flanked by bookshelves. Thanks to my husband, that became a reality. Now that I've been working from home, I'm beginning to consider different desk styles. You too? Let's look at some office desk options that will compliment different sized spaces and reflect your personality.
Thanks to technology and digital storage, gone are the days of needing storage like filing cabinets and lots of desk drawers. These days, a simple, open desk without drawers will meet the needs of many who work from home. If you want a simple and airy look, a basic desk like this one might be a good fit.
Consider whether you want your desk to be mobile or not. A desk on wheels gives you the flexibility to move it around as the sunshine streams through the windows or when you want a change of scenery. It makes it easier to clean the the space under it too. Look for wheels that lock so you don't find your desk rolling way each time you move your chair.
Think Outside of The Box
Flex your creative muscles as you consider desk options. Want an industrial look? A workbench can make an ideal workspace. Look for one with height adjustment options to satisfy ergonomical factors. The one below comes with a heavy duty wood surface which will look great even after years of wear and tear.
When you don't have a lot of space, let alone a dedicated room for your office, you might find a wall-mounted desk the best option. The model below provides just enough room for the basics and is a good minimalist approach.
If you want to conceal the clutter (not everyone can live with only a laptop, coffee mug, and plant on our desktop), try the old school roll top desk. Like the one shown below, many come with pullout sections to expand the size of your desktop. When you're finished with your work, pull down the top and get on with your day (great when you have kids...).
Desk For 2
What about those of you who work from home and share an office with your partner? Fitting 2 desks into one room can be challenging. Well, there are many desk options including this 2-workstation setup like the one below. You have the separation of 2 work spaces, but you also have an adjoining space where you can spread out and collaborate.
With so many options available today, there's no doubt you'll find desk style to fit your home office needs. Don't forget about the tax deductions you can take if you're working in a dedicated home office space. We hope you'll check out some of the options above and share your new office spaces with us.
