Choosing The Best Office Desk For A Small Space

20 May 2022

Pandemic working has seen many of us trying to squeeze our office space into the smallest of areas, even resorting to the kitchen table. If you are not lucky enough to have a spare room that you can convert into a spacious office, you may need to make efficient use of a very small area. Luckily, there are plenty of clever solutions for those of us who are short of space. Whether you are setting up your workspace in the poky box room or trying to squeeze comfortably into a tight corner in the living room, there are space-saving solutions ready to save the day! While it may be tempting to snuggle up on the sofa with your laptop on your knee, this is not good for your work productivity or your posture! Just imagine how distracting direct access to Netflix all day can be!

Our handy office desk ideas will help you as you start the hunt for a suitable office desk to fit into your small space. You don’t need to compromise on style or practicality either. Whatever your budget, there will be a space-saving option on the market for you.

Consider A Corner Desk

If you have an unused corner hidden away in your bedroom or front room, why not make use of it by investing in a space-saving corner desk? Corner desks provide maximum working space while making use of awkward corners in the home. They can prove particularly useful if you need to fit in two computer screens, as many of us do these days. If you opt for a modular design, you can move your desk around and add additional pieces if you find yourself with more space. Many corner desks have built-in storage solutions, allowing you to store away your items and keep your working area clutter-free.

As well as being very practical, corner desks can be aesthetically pleasing, sprucing up a bare corner of the room. Accessorise it with some fun trinkets or a fresh vase of flowers to brighten up your space and inspire you.

A Floating Solution

Have you heard of floating office desks? When you are really tight on space, a wall-mounted desk area can provide the perfect solution. A major benefit of a floating desk is the amount of floor space that it saves. While you may be worried about setting up a floating desk, they are very easy to install. Many of them have the option of folding up to create even more space when they are not in use. They are generally much cheaper than a full office desk, so will suit those on a tight budget. Floating desks can look really stylish and can be mounted at the most suitable height for you.

What About A Standing Desk?

A sedentary lifestyle is linked to many physical health risks, including diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Prolonged periods of sitting can also negatively impact our mood, raising the risk of mental health problems, such as anxiety and depression. As research supports the many benefits of standing desks on your general health and wellbeing, many workers are embracing them.

There are plenty of height-adjustable standing desks on the market that are designed specifically to fit into small spaces. A compact standing desk can help to improve your posture, boost your productivity and stimulate your blood flow, leaving you feeling refreshed, revitalised and ready to roll!

Maybe A Desk Converter?

Not all of us have the budget to invest in a brand-new standing desk. Or maybe you have a compact desk already, that fits perfectly into your small office space, but you would like to take advantage of the benefits of a standing desk. A desk converter, also known as a desk riser, could be the perfect solution for you. This nifty gadget sits on top of your existing desk, allowing you to adjust the height of your workstation so that you can either sit or stand whilst working.

With a small footprint, affordable price point and practicality, desk converters can transform your small workspace into an active and inspiring area.
