Great desk options for a home office
I spent part of my Halloween weekend this year redoing my home office. I’d been working on this for a while, and found that the hardest thing to decide is what desk I wanted to set up. There are so many different styles and sizes and shapes for desks, that it took me a while to decide on this nice wooden one. But if you’re going to redo your home office, here are a few things that might help:
The size of your desk will depend on what you’re going to keep on it and how much space you need. Your desk may double up as storage for other things like mail and bills, or maybe you want to store a few books within easy reach, so keep the shelf space and drawer space in mind. I chose a solid wood computer desk with plenty of writing space, a set of drawers and a few small shelves.
This computer desk was perfect for me, because it gives me all the space I need and I can pull down the cover to hide any mess when friends come over. Computer desks usually come with open shelves for a desktop CPU, printer and keyboard. If you buy one with drawers, they can be used for storing your hanging files, books, bills and other items. A computer workstation desk comes in many ergonomic models too.
If your work involves a lot of paperwork, then a writing desk is a functional option that looks great. These are usually only good for writing, as they aren’t made with space for a desktop and there are usually only one or two drawers. It can also double up as a laptop computer desk.
If you want to keep important papers or files safe and secure, an executive desk is the ideal style. They often come in sections, so you can choose exactly the right size for you. The most popular is a L-shaped executive desk that gives you plenty of space to work from home. But this is only a good option if you have a lot of space at home.
Keeping things organized in your home office with the right desk can save a lot of space and make it easier for you to work fast and efficiently.
