The place where you sit down to work, pay bills, or just catch up with social media should be comfortable, and it doesn't hurt if it's beautiful, too. Mainly, your desk needs to be a place where you can focus on the task at hand, whatever that may be. Here's what to look for while you shop.
First, you'll need to ask yourself how large of a desk you need. If you just need a place to set your laptop while you write a few emails and check your bank balance, then a small writing desk or secretary will be enough. If you have a desktop computer with a printer, speakers, and other components, you'll need something larger. If you like to have your reference materials nearby, choose something with shelves, drawers, or a hutch.
Next, the room where you'll set up your home office will need to factor into your decision. Large workstations are great for dividing up larger rooms while corner desks are ideal for focusing your thoughts in a cozy room. If the room will be your dedicated home office, then choose something with a bold style and decorate around it. If you're adding a home office area to another room, coordinate the finish and the details with the existing furniture there. A desk with doors may be helpful in a room like this, too, so you can close everything up when you're not working.
Finally, you'll need to think about who will use the desk most. If your inner entrepreneur is telling you to be your own boss, then it could be time to start shopping for home office furniture. Choose a desk that inspires you, whether it's the style that gets your creativity going or just the space to spread out your things. If you're setting up a study space for your child, look for a student desk that has room for a computer as well as an open textbook. If you do a lot of typing, you may want to look for something that comes with a keyboard tray.

    This is a nice small wooden desk. It was fairly straight forward to put together but I think it could have been designed better. First of all they want you to have some wood glue which is not included and you will also need a Phillips or flat head screw driver that is half the normal length because the pre drilled holes are too close to the angled legs to use a normal sized tool. The cross bars that connect the legs could also have been designed better because the pre drilled holes here are too high up on the front legs causing the pull out drawer to rub against the crossbar when installed. Overall a nice small desk though at a reasonable price. I'll keep it.

    The wood is soft (break easily). This is a short term desk till you can find a better one. The frame should be better for the price.

    Not worth the price

    The packaging was excellent so the damage done was done before shipping, the sides, tops and drawers are all scratched and dented, with the fiber wood showing . I had 2 pieces replaces and they were just as bad, if not worse than the originals. I am going to try sending this back for a refund. It was fairly simple to assemble, but make sure you have two people as the pieces are heavy and awkward to work with.
