While most people would love to have a room in their house that was strictly designated as a home office, many are not that lucky. As a result, people place computers and computer desks in living rooms, bedrooms, and just about any place they can. The problem with this is that these desks often look out of place and clash with the existing design and decor of the room.
Fortunately, there are a number of different styles of computer desks available giving you many options to find one that will fit in your room. The first step is to determine the amount of space you have available and than looking at desks that will be appropriate for that space. Here are four unique styles of computer desks that you can choose from.
Mobile Workstations and Carts
Typically, mobile computer workstations and carts have the smallest footprint of any desks taking up a minimal amount of space. Obviously, the most desirable features is their ability to be easily moved anywhere in your house. These desks have plenty of room for your computer equipment along with an extra shelve or two for any peripherals or books.
Computer armoire desks can range from the most simple to decorative and elaborate designs. Many armoire desks are designed to be beautiful pieces of furniture rather than something to simply hold your computer. The best thing about an armoire desk is the ability to conceal your computer and monitor by simply closing the armoire doors. If you want to have your computer in a living room, but would also like the ability to keep it hidden when not in use, computer armoire desks are the best choice.
A computer hutch desk is very similar to an armoire desk without the doors. One benefit of these desks is that they tend to have a lot of storage space and room to place your peripheral equipment like speakers and printers. However, they generally do not look good in open living spaces because you do not have the ability to conceal the equipment as you do with an armoire.
Computer desks can come in a number of varying styles and sizes. Some have drawers, while others may not. You can find corner desks that are l-shaped in different lengths and widths. There are computer desks available in glass, metal, wood, and everything in between. Therefore, it becomes imperative that you understand how much room you have to work with and what styles and designs you favor for your computer desk.
Each of these styles of computer desks come in an array of sizes, finishes, designs and styles so its important to think of your personal preferences and tastes prior to desk shopping. Of course, you will also need to consider how the desk will coordinate with the room's decor.
