Have you found that ideal small computer desk to optimize your working space around your desktop, or laptop? Home offices or small office spaces warrant the careful planning of your office furniture in order for you to feel comfortable at work and remain productive.
For really tight spaces there is one model that is just a perfect fit. That means you can find a small computer desk designed for corners. Some even come with a hutch if you need additional storage options without taking up more lateral space.
If you have a small traditional desk in your attic and want to save some money, you can always add adjustable shelving and trays to use it as a computer desk. Visit your local hardware store and get help to find the right accessories to turn the desk into a functioning unit.
Some small computer desks have attached bookshelves that can really help you stay organized and neat, especially if your new work center is out in a prominent place in your living area. Most of these units also come with at least one storage drawer that can be used as a catch-all for paper clips, pencils, tape, and other small items. A pullout keyboard tray will allow you to keep your desktop work area small.
When considering style and colors for these useful office furniture pieces, you will see that there are many to choose from: whether you want more of an “office look” with a white or black finish, a glass top for contemporary style, or a fun brightly colored small office desk, you should find a model to suit your tastes. If you are into hot electric colors you should look into the youth section.
I remember one small business owner that had a rather tight office space and was already equipped with several small computer desks. Nevertheless, he still felt too crowded in his office. That’s when I suggested he swaps his small desks for ones with glass tops on a metal frame. After trying this out for a few days he contacted me, amazed at “how roomier the office had become”.
To create a warm or cozy office, or simply to match existing wooden furniture, you should choose a small computer desk made of wood. There are more and more choices available, even in these more compact sized models. Whether solid wood like oak, maple, birch or ash is your pick, other more ecological alternatives exist, like recycled hardwood or softwood bonded with strong resins, or various desks with scratch and stain resistant melamine finished shelves.
Unless it is intended for a very spotty usage, you should definitely want your small computer desk to come with some sort of warranty. These vary by brand, sometimes even by model. While you should expect a stronger and longer warranty from higher priced office furniture, you should check it out before any purchase. What is important is that you are satisfied with the unit, so dealing with a reliable source is critical.
