A tasteful desk for your home office anchors the room, making it a place where you can be happy to work every day. Taste is personal; what you may love, someone else may not. Explore a range of options to discover what appeals to you the most. When you have several ideas in mind, evaluate whether the desks are functional as well as tasteful. Then choose a desk you love and incorporate it into a home office design that will keep you productive and comfortable.
Wall-mounted desks utilize closet space in a studio apartment or guest bedroom in a small home. High-style options go well beyond a piece of plywood on hinges. Although if you are artistic, you can certainly make that look work, too. Chrome, acrylic, wood and synthetics make slick modern designs that you can hide away when they are not in use. Find them at specialty furniture stores.
Pair a large, heavy, elegant wood desk with a handcrafted wicker chair, outfit it with a stylish table lamp and face it towards a couch upholstered in light-colored cotton canvas to create a home office that welcomes visitors. A tasteful home office desk can blend right into a living room when it is kept free of papers and clutter. Complete the room as if it were exclusively a living room if you will frequently host company and want them to feel at ease.
A long, narrow stainless steel table against the wall can feel sleek and efficient in a room where you will spend lots of time working and little time socializing. Mount a large computer screen on the wall to increase your desk space and keep the look streamlined. For storage, use rolling file holders and moveable drawer units -- this keeps the look clean and airy, with a feeling of movement rather than a static look.
