These days, many people choose to work from home instead of commuting to an office, making the home office or study a very important part of the house. Even if you don't work from home, it can be useful to have a designated area for using the computer, working on hobbies or taking care of those necessary chores like paying the bills. You can choose to dedicate a whole room in your house to an office, or you can opt instead to focus on the study's most important element—the desk. In this ideabook, we will be looking at a variety of desks to suit every taste and need. You are sure to find something that is right for your home office!
This angle-shaped desk is a wonderful design for those of us who like to have a large work space. The shape, in effect, allows you to have two desk areas within easy access, giving you lots of room to spread out your books and papers. The design is an especially good choice for small office spaces, as it allows you to make the most of the space that you have.
This sturdy desk commands an air of attention and respect, ensuring that you are in charge of whatever projects you undertake here. The desk's placement in the middle of the room is partially responsible for this impression of power. In addition, the dark colour and simple lines suggest classic luxury, while the wood brings a warm, comfortable tone to this study. The same material is used on the shelves lining the walls, a detail that helps create one unified look in the room.
This small table is the perfect way to squeeze an office space into a space-lacking room in your home. Because its design is so simple, it can be used for a variety of purposes: by simply removing the chair, you can transform this piece of furniture from a desk to a sideboard, end table or just extra counter space.
For those who are more creatively inclined, this drawing table provides the perfect work space for sketching and planning. Its simple, classic design brings an elegant, timeless look the space. Here, when paired with the exposed piping shelves and metal and wood stool, the desk takes on an industrial style, but it could just as easily complement a rustic, country home.
If you are struggling to fit a work space into your home, try forgotten spaces like the niche underneath the stairs. Because this is a small area, it is important to avoid a cluttered look, something that can be accomplished by using simple, streamlined pieces like this desk and chair.
Another place, besides a home office, is to place a desk in a child's room. Children, especially as they get older, need to have somewhere for studying and doing homework. Designating a specific place to complete these tasks will help them to develop future work habits. The bright cheerful colour of this desk makes it a good fit for a young person's space, but its simple and elegant design, lends an air of sophistication, which is perfect for serious studying.
The gorgeous, mid-century modern desk, is a prime example of the clean lines we see in Scandinavian design. Its curved shape makes it very practical, by providing a large amount of work space, but qualities like the silhouette and the quality of the wood ensure that style is just as important as its function.
