We spend a huge portion of our lives sitting at a desk, whether it’s in an office or at home. While you can’t do much with your company cubicle aside from accessorizing and adding your own desk lamp or digital picture frame, you can design a stylish and functional WFH space.

Above all, finding the right home office desk that jibes with your aesthetic and budget is key. But with so many options on the market, it can be tough to choose, particularly if you need the desk to work in a tight or awkward space. That’s why we rounded up the best home office desks that are well worth considering no matter what your setup requires. Read on for our top recommendations, plus a guide with all the info you’ll need before buying.

The Best Home Office Desks

What to Consider

The first thing you’ll want to nail down is how much square footage you want to dedicate to your home office desk, and then look at the desk type, whether it’s an L-shaped, table- or console-style, standing, or a traditional desk with side drawers. There are also workspaces that are integrated into pieces of furniture, such as a shelving unit or hutch. A desk that meets your storage needs is essential, and comfort and ergonomics are ultra-important, and can be influenced by the chair you pair with the desk, so it’s a good idea to shop for the two items together. In terms of materials, there’s solid and manufactured wood (MDF), metal, glass (plus any combination of the aforementioned materials), and some desks feature extras like cord management and integrated USB ports. Style runs the gamut from midcentury modern-inspired and contemporary to industrial and modern farmhouse.

How We Selected

All of the home office desks we feature have average customer ratings of 4 stars or more, and most have earned ratings of 4.5 stars or higher. We feature multiple types—including adjustable standing desks and furniture with integrated workspaces that do double duty in multi-purpose spaces. While comparing home office desks, we took into account overall design, quality of materials, and storage space. We also chose options across price points, from a basic but stylish all-white desk for under $140 to an all-glass Parson’s desk that runs upwards of $600.
