Finding space in and around your home for a suitable workspace can sometimes be a little difficult. If like many others you’re now working from home more often then you need a suitable space to focus on your work. Setting up the perfect home office is essential so that you may organise yourself effectively and provide a space in which you can be most productive. Finding the right furniture will help you achieve these tasks and create that all important home office environment.
Many of us wont have spare rooms in which to setup these work environments so squeezing in a work area in and around existing rooms is going to be important. Therefore, you may be looking for a small desk that can fit into your bedroom, or become part of your living space.
In this post I’ve taken a look at some of the best small desks from handmade crafts men and women. Each desk is handmade by small businesses with an ethical outlook on their environmental impact. I’ve included a few different style desks here ranging in budget. There are corner desks for those that like to be tucked away, folding desks for those who need to minimise further when not working and computer desks best suited to those who have more computing requirements. (Extra screens etc.)
Lets kick things off with a few corner desk options
