While some homeowners run their business from home including meetings, why use a boring desk when there is a possibility to turn your workspace into a creative zone? Your desk, in particular, plays a vital role in any office space, especially one at home – it has to be comfortable and functional.

Where should you place your home office desk?

For someone who works from home, determining where to put the desk is always mind-boggling. So where should you place the home office desk? You should always set up your desk in an area that doesn’t have much traffic, is properly ventilated and has ample light (natural light is preferable). It must accommodate all your needs, supplies, and equipment you use often. Basically this space must be free from distractions. Remember to minimise clutter and tidying your desk helps you focus and working becomes easy. Add a few personal touches, like family photographs, goals, motivational quotes to make it feel more comfortable.

In this post, we shall see how we can turn a dedicated area of your home into a smart office and functional desk that offers a lot of space for your work, study or hobby needs. Now let us look at some creative home office desk ideas.

A Foldable Desk

A rotating or a sliding desk adds extra workspace when you need it and saves space when not in use. You can use such spaces in your home more efficiently when you need it with a sliding desk. This impressive design fits on the walls and utilises less space but lends a far more productive work experience. And because it can be tucked away when not in use, you can get all the benefits of a larger working space as well.

A Floating Desk

Have you ever hit your little toes on the leg of a desk and cried in agony? Not enough legroom to stretch your legs? Then how about a floating desk? A floating desk is getting increasingly popular because it saves space and looks modern. If you are cramped in an area, this is an ideal way to save space due to its lightweight design. One way to make it, even more, cooler by building matching floating shelves over it, as this combination looks sleek. It is ideal for modern, Scandinavian, industrial, minimalistic and many other styles of interior design.
