Desks are a popular furniture item in homes today due to their multifunctionality. They give you a space to work from home, a spot to sit and socialize with friends during zoom calls, and even provide you a designated area for your hobbies. Desks come in a wide variety of styles, so before you go out and buy one, it’s important to think about what its main purpose will be in your household. Some of the most popular desks to look for are desks for home offices and desks for homes with minimal space.
Desks for Home Office
Over the past year, working from home has become the new norm for many people. This has inspired a lot of individuals to turn their extra room or nook into a home office area. For many, this meant buying a new office desk, but how do you know which desk is the perfect work-from-home desk? Of course, the answer will vary from person to person and depend on what will help you be the most productive. If you need a lot of space for all of your documents and office supplies, then a U-shaped desk or a desk with a hutch might be of interest to you. If you’re tired of sitting in an uncomfortable chair for eight hours as you type away at your computer, then a standing or sit-stand desk might be a perfect fit. When it comes to desks for the home office, there are loads of options out there. Check out the different styles down below to see which one fits your needs best!
Desks for Small Spaces
If you live in a place with minimal room, such as a studio apartment or a tiny house, have no fear! There are plenty of desks for small spaces available to purchase. Whether you need a nook to use your laptop or a spot to sit and draw, there are many desks out there that are compact and won’t take over your space. Have an empty corner in your room that you’re not sure how to utilize? Try fitting a corner desk in there! Not enough floor space in your bedroom? Consider a floating desk that attaches to your wall instead. Look through the different desk styles below to see which type will fit best in your small space.
Writing desks tend to be smaller in size and are a great option if you love to write or draw. These kinds of desks aren’t typically made to hold desktop computers, nor do they have good cable-management features. However, many writing desks today are made with laptops in mind, meaning you can continue to write that novel that’s saved in your computer files.
L-shaped desks, while larger, are meant to fit nicely in the corner of a room. They offer more workspace and storage compartments while trying to take up minimal room. These can work in any space, acting as a computer desk or just a spot to place decor and family pictures.
As the name suggests, a corner desk is meant to fit in the corner of your room. Though it may sound similar to an L-shaped desk, corner desks are much smaller and do not span as much wall space as an L-shaped desk does. These are great desks for smaller spaces that don’t have a lot of room to work with. These are also a perfect way to fill empty corner spaces that may not otherwise be used, while still preserving room for other pieces of furniture.

Hanging Writing Desk: by Coaster
A floating desk, much like its name, gives the illusion that it’s floating. These desks have no legs but are mounted to a wall instead. These can be much better than traditional desks for people who live in homes with small rooms, or those who are going for a more minimal look. These are better suited for laptops rather than desktop computers since they don’t have as much tabletop space. When they’re not holding your laptop, they can double as a lovely display shelf for smaller decor items.

Though it falls more in line with furniture style than desk type, it’s still worth mentioning that modern desks have become very popular today. Modern desks tend to have simple, sleek designs with very little embellishment, which is the opposite of traditional desks with their ornate designs and old-world looks. Modern desks are truly a sign of the times, many of them coming computer-ready with wire-management features and even built-in outlets. Not a fan of modern design? Check out some other design styles!
