I don’t normally work from home, but after having to for weeks during everything going on right now, I had to figure out a quick setup for a home office. I have a second bedroom in my apartment, but that’s been co-opted by my boyfriend and his gaming PC (relationships are about compromise, people) and a standing wardrobe. That meant I had to get creative with what I opted for when it came to a desk. I went for one that fits into my decor choices and easily blends into the rest of my living room. There are so many desk choices, but we’ve rounded up some great options to add to your home that’ll maybe even help you enjoy getting work done.
FOR THE LONG HAUL:
Jarvis Laminate Standing Desk
This standing desk is a favorite by Scouted Staff Writer Dan Modlin. “This standing desk is sleek and beautiful enough to not impede on your home decor, and offers the functionality of an optimized ergonomic standing desk you’ll need for the long haul.”
FOR A BLANK SLATE:
Coleshome Computer Desk
The simplicity of this desk allows you to add any accessory or other pieces of furniture to your looking. You can easily put in an under-desk file cabinet or add whatever desk chair you’d like.
FOR THE RIGHT AESTHETIC
Alaterre Hairpin Live Edge Wood with Metal Console Table
This is the table/desk that I finally decided on when looking for the right one to use while working from home. It fits into our living room decor, so even when I eventually go to the office, it can work as a console table.
FOR THOSE CONCERNED ABOUT BACK PAIN
VIVO Black Height Adjustable 36 inch Stand up Desk Converter
Back pain from sitting at a desk is real, so maybe it’s time to invest in a standing desk. Something like this one, which can switch from tabletop mode to standing with barely any effort is great.
FOR EXTRA SUPPORT
SHW 55-Inch Large Electric Height Adjustable Computer Desk
If you want something that gives you the versatility of a standing desk with a little more space, grab this one. It’s electric (boogie woogie woogie) so it can be adjusted to whatever height you need at the touch of a button.
FOR MORE STORAGE
Nathan James Telos Home Office Computer Desk with Drawer
This simple desk gives you great lines while also providing a built-in drawer for storing things like extra keyboards, papers, supplies, and more.
FOR A WORK FROM HOME COMMAND CENTER
Marcum Solid Wood L-Shape Desk
The classic L-shaped desk is the perfect at-home command center for everything you need to do. There’s space to spread out and room to slide a file cabinet underneath for extra storage.
FOR THOSE WITH LIMITED SPACE
Ladder Shelf Desk
Not only does this double as a bookshelf, it takes up the same amount of space as a normal bookshelf would. It leans against the wall with two shelves for books and tchotchkes, plush a cubby to store your work necessities.
FOR A SUSTAINABLE OPTION
Dims. makes some of the coolest furniture out there and the Eave desk is no different. It’s made to be a table/desk hybrid to fit into any room. It’s made from sustainably-harvested wood and only takes 5-7 minutes to put together.
