Whether you’re continuing to work from home, or have a kid going back to school, remote or in person, an essential for both of you may just be a lap desk. Personally, working from home has been excellent because it means sometimes, I get to work in bed. Imagine going to school or work in bed! With a lap desk, you can transform your bedroom or couch into a great place to work. To help you out, we’ve rounded up some top-rated lap desks.
FOR A DO IT ALL DESK
Sofia + Sam Lap Desk
This lap desk kind of has it all. Not only does it have a memory foam wrist pad, it also has a built in light, to make you look a little better on Zoom or brighten up your space. There is a slot in the back that can fit an iPad, or it can accommodate laptops up to 15”. It also has a pop out slot to keep your phone always at an arm's reach.
FOR AN ADJUSTABLE DESK
TaoTronics Lap Desk
Not only is this an excellent lap desk, it’s also a great tray for eating in bed (hint, hint). The top has clips to keep your laptop from sliding around, an angled surface for ideal ergonomics, and the stand is adjustable so you can get up to the exact right height.
FOR A CUSHIONED DESK
HUANUO Lap Desk
A simple yet comfortable lap desk, this one has cushion pillows on the base so it can rest comfortably on your lap. It has a wrist rest, but most importantly, it’s all light weight and extremely portable, so you can bring it from room to room with ease.
FOR A SIMPLE DESK
Honey Can-Do Lap Desk
This is a fairly simple lap desk, and there’s nothing wrong with that. It has a cushion on the bottom, a handle at the top for easy mobility, and the solid surface will help combat heat emitted from laptops and tablets. It comes in six different colors, too.
FOR A FOLDABLE DESK
Rainbean Laptop Desk
Another lap desk/breakfast table hybrid (if you haven’t gotten the hint yet, you never will!). This one is made from solid wood, and the legs fold up, making it easily storable. Plus, if you put this on a regular table, it can kind of function as a laptop stand. Just saying.
