We all like the idea of working from a laptop in our local artisan cafe or filing that report from the sofa but, in practical terms, a designated work space can make you much more productive. Whether you’ve got the pick of a spare bedroom, or find yourself relegated to a nook in the corner of your dining room, we’ve got the perfect desk to get you organised.
Types of desks
Shapes and sizes
You'll want to choose a desk that’s a suitable shape and size for your space. If you’ve got plenty of room you might want to go for a wide or long desk to give you lots of space to spread out. However, if you’re short on space, a narrow or compact desk will be best for you. Check out our corner desks, ladder desks or designs with storage too.
Colours and materials
If you're setting up an office space in an existing room, you'll want it to blend in seamlessly with the rest of the decor. For neutral interiors, you can't go wrong with a glass topped or grey, black or white desk. We also recommend our walnut or oak desks for classic style. Looking for something a bit more out there? Try our brightly coloured or on-trend marble effect, concrete or plywood styles.
Desks with storage
Desks with shelves
Super handy if you're short on space, a desk with shelves is an ideal place to stack books and office accessories. Make it worthy of a #shelfie by adding a few plants and accessories.
Best desks for small spaces
Even if your pad is on the small side, there are ways you can make room for work. So, if you’re not blessed with huge amounts of space, but have a desire to create a functional and on-trend workspace, check out our best space saving desks below.
Choose a complementary chair
A comfortable office chair is a must if you want to stay motivated. If dual purpose is a key issue due to lack of space, select a style that can work as a desk chair by day and a dining chair by night.
