Corner desks are a great way to maximise the space in your office in any environment. Many people prefer to install themselves in a particular part of their office, and if you share the office with a colleague or family member to work, then a couple of corner desks may provide a great solution in allowing multiple people to work in a single environment.

5. The Floating Desk

Floating desks are another way to maximise on space in your home office by taking away from a centralised working space and moving it towards a wall. Floating desks are great for computer stations that require a PC and filing to be hidden away under the desk, freeing up space for you to work on its slightly smaller surface. Floating desks are great for smaller offices here space is at a premium and light computer work is required from your job. There are many smart DIY Floating Desk ideas that can beautify your room or office very easily.

6. The Partners Desk

A Partners desk is a wonderful type of desk that allows one or more people to work at a centralised station.

They come in many different styles from modern, sleek and simple to traditional antique desks, as well as brilliant reproduction versions that leek as elegant as the originals but have all of the modern trimmings that modern offices require. Great to be used with a colleague and even better to be used as a single desk, If you need to interview clients or are speaking to people from behind your desk on a regular basis, then nothing beats a classic partners desk to furnish your new office.

7. Modern Glass Desk

For a while now glass desks have been popular for their clean lines and professional finish, and modern glass desks have improved in many ways on their original designs. With multi-layered surfaces, modern glass desks offer a large area to work on, without being too overbearing on style and colour. Most modern desks come with all the refinements you’d expect from a professional office desk, such as ports for computer monitors and electrical outlet sockets to bring your office into the digital age.

Whatever is your choice of desk for your office you only need to think of a few factors in determining which will best suit your style. Think of the size of your office and choose a desk that suits it. Having a desk that is too big for your room may feel uncomfortable, as well as having a table that is too small. Choose a style that goes with your office decor, as well as the type of office you run to give your clients and customers the best impression.
