More Than Just a Desk

More Than Just a Desk

Making the most of underused space is a great way to gain a home office. Instead of a small chest or credenza in your entryway, replace it with a desk! In this type of setup, a laptop desk is a perfect solution. When closed up, it requires no more space than a lateral file cabinet and gives you a spot to set keys and mail when you walk in the door. When open, it features a spot to set your laptop, plus it offers plenty of storage, file drawers and more! A small chair set to the side provides a spot to sit down and take off your shoes when you come in the door. Then when it's time to get to work, you can pull the chair up to the desk.
But sometimes you just don't want your workspace on display for all who enter your home. That's when stationing a desk into your bedroom, no matter how small, can be a great alternative. Try placing a small desk far enough away from the wall to tuck a floor lamp behind it. That way, you can still take advantage of task lighting but without sacrificing valuable workspace. And to prevent this setup from feeling like it belongs in a college dorm, simply hang "grown-up" artwork, gallery style, above the desk. Problem solved!
