Whether you’re going back to school, working on a passion project, or trying to get organized, everyone deserves a zen space to get their work done. Doing homework at the kitchen table, on the sofa, or worse–in bed–is not ideal. Having a designated work desk will keep your organized, focused, and save the rest of your home for relaxing! A good desk will make getting work done a little less stressful. The best desk might even make work enjoyable! 

When choosing a desk, you’ll want to pick one that suits your responsibilities and work style. Take these factors into consideration when picking a desk:

  1. Style – Are you looking for a simple table or a fully functioning workstation?
  2. Size – Are you okay with a corner desk or do you need something more expansive?
  3. Shape – Do you prefer rectangular, L-shaped, curved, or a standing desk?
  4. Construction – Do you prefer wood, metal, or glass?
  5. Storage – Do you require drawers, shelving, or filing cabinets?
