You currently need to add a desk to your little office, but you don’t have much available floor space to accommodate one. At first thought, you might think that you’re out of luck. However, don’t despair just yet, as there are many desks that are currently on the market that are designed specifically to fit into small spaces, like the one that you have in your office. In this article, I will describe two of these desks to help give you an idea as to what kind of desk you might be able to get.
The Corner Computer Desk
As its name implies, the corner computer desk is designed to fit into one of the corners of your office. It is shaped in such a way that it mates perfectly. Due to its shape and size, the desktop is not big enough to hold a computer and all of its peripherals, but they often come with a hutch above the desktop and a storage rack under the desktop that will give you some of the storage that you need. A corner computer desk with hutch will also keep you from getting blinded by sun glare in the middle of the afternoon, because you’ll be facing the corner rather than being directly across from a window, where the sun can shine right through, onto your screen. The lack of available desk space will also encourage the user to keep his desk clean and organized, making him more efficient.
The computer armoire is another of many popular desks for small spaces. These desks can fit right into a corner and resemble closets at first sight. However, when you open up the doors on it, it reveals a complete workstation with enough room for your computer, keyboard, peripherals, and even a place to sit. Above the desktop, there is usually shelving or cabinetry that will store your less frequently used items, while keeping them within arm’s reach. While they don’t take up much floor space, computer armoires utilize the vertical space in your office to give you the storage capacity that you need.
The corner computer desk and the computer armoire are just two examples of the many desks that are designed to fit into small spaces. Before you buy, you should really look into the pros and cons of each type in order to select the best desk for your needs.
