A black writing desk can do wonders for your writing. Writings desks come in so many different styles and flavors that there is bound to be something out there that is to your liking. While the advantage of this is that there is a desk for almost anyone regardless of their tastes, it does mean that sometimes you may feel a little overwhelmed. What should you look for in a writing desk? What makes for a good writing desk? These are very typical questions people ask when they go desk hunting. Here are some tips to help you make choosing a desk that is right for you easier and simpler.
Before you even hit the showrooms or start looking online for a desk, ask yourself what your budget is. How much you can afford to spend on a desk will ultimately determine the size, shape, style and many other factors of your desk. There are three main categories: modern, trendy and antique. The most expensive of these three is antique. If you have a limited budget then you would be better off looking at modern or trendy desks. These are much cheaper but do not have that special antique look and feel that only an antique desk possesses. While antique desks are highly sought after, the downside of them is that they sometimes are not best suited for an all purpose writing desk.
The main problem with writing desks is that their size is generally smaller than most traditional desks. They are typically slimmer and sleeker and as such you normally have much less space available to use. This might not be a problem if you plan to use pen and paper and nothing else, but if you were hoping to place a desktop computer on it then you may be out of luck. Make a list of everything you plan to put on the desk. Keep in mind that you will most likely be unable to place a full sized computer on one of these desks, and it is recommended to use nothing larger than a laptop. If you do all your writing on a full sized computer then you may find that you are forced to place the computer tower, printer and other devices on the floor or on a secondary table as they most likely will be too large for even the largest of desks. It is always best to make a list of everything you plan to use and place on your desk in advance, this way you will be able to look at the sizes of desks in showrooms before you purchase your next black writing desk.
Budget and personal taste are the two biggest factors that you should pay attention to the next time you go desk hunting. Your budget is perhaps the most determining factor of what kind of desk you end up purchasing, but also be sure to know in advance what you plan to place and use on your desk. This way you can be sure that the writing desk you purchase is big enough to fit your needs.
This writing desk is a perfect solution for an uncluttered look in a small space. I made this one using maple plywood and inexpensive pine boards. More info and free plans:
