Our collection includes a huge range of fabulous home office desk designs. Being able to work from home comfortably is vital for many of us, and, even if it’s not there in order to carry out the day job, a home office desk is vital as a space to do research, keep in touch with friends and family remotely, shop from home, study, and so on. Desks are also a must-have for kids’ rooms. Think about the area you have available when you’re buying a home office desk. We have desks of all sizes so you can fit one into a large space or a small room. Consider, too, whether you want the desk to be on show all the time, or prefer one that can be concealed when you’re not using it. If the latter is the case, take a look at our home office armoire in which both screen and keyboard can be hidden away behind the closed doors when you’re not at work. We offer both straight and corner home office desks in our range. For maximum work space you might like to consider a corner desk that offers two desktops at a right angle.
Storage options for desks
To get the right design from our range of desks, it’s best to think about how much storage you want inside the desk as well as the dimensions of the desk. If you need plenty of room to put away paperwork, stationery, reference material and so on, you’ll want to opt for one of our desks with pedestals. Pedestal desks have a top supported by either one or two – or even three in the case of a corner desk – pedestals that can provide either cupboard or drawer storage. If, on the other hand, it’s really the worksurface of the desk that’s crucial and you don’t have very much to put away in the piece of furniture, take a look at the desks with drawers, like our French, Tuvan and Swedish desks and tables. These still offer enough room to put away pens, pencils, notepaper and more, though, so you can keep the desktop uncluttered. If the desk is part of another room, these can also be good options because, with a laptop or tablet tidied away, they can appear as an elegant addition to the room’s furniture without giving away their home office function.
Do you need a modular desk?
You may find the perfect desk in our range of designs – we have functional and stylish options for dedicated home offices and shared spaces. Alternatively, you might like to opt for a modular desk. One of these is a sound choice if you want to individualise your work area – or a child’s study space – without paying the high price tag of bespoke design. There are both straight and corner modular desks in our range, allowing you to create a desk that fits both the room and your work needs perfectly. With one of these designs, you can specify cupboards, shelves and filing drawers for your desk, refining your design with our online planner until it’s just right. With the modular corner desk design, you can even add extra pedestals and tops until the desk is the ideal workstation for your needs. Whether you opt for a modular desk or one of our designs, you can choose its paint colour from our range of beautiful paint shades, as well as picking the knobs and handles you prefer.
How to expand desk space
If you like the idea of keeping more to hand on your desk, take a look at the extras which can be added to our designs. For the New Hampshire single pedestal desk, consider a set of shelves. These are positioned to the rear of the desktop and as well as the shelves themselves, the design has room for a pinboard at the base, which can be upholstered in a fabric of your choice. For modular desks – and other desktops – take a look at our desktop shelves. These can be used singly or jointly to form a row, so you can add the storage you need within easy reach. Also handy is our desk gallery. This introduces two drawers and three cubbyholes to the rear of the desktop, plus has a small shelf running along the top. One of these can help keep a desktop neat and tidy without intruding on the work area available. All these designs can be painted in the same shade as the desk itself for a seamless expansion of the piece.
