Small desks are ideal for home office workstations, shared workspaces, and small private offices. We stock a wide selection of high-quality compact desks that are beautifully made and built to last.&nbsp;</p> <h2 dir="ltr">Small Desk Storage Options</h2> <p dir="ltr">While compact desks have a limited footprint, many come with similar features to other desks&mdash;just on a smaller scale.</p> <ul> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Drawers</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">A file drawer or file storage</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Adjustable height so it can be used as a standing desk</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">A corner desk design, perfect for home offices and shared workspaces</p> </li> </ul> &nbsp; <h2 dir="ltr">Materials Often Used in Commercial-Grade Small Desks</h2> <ul> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Laminate: Because laminate is an engineered material, it can be constructed to withstand high levels of impact and consistent wear. There are different grades of laminate, with some more durable than others. High-performance laminate can be one of the best materials for corporate office settings because of its ability to withstand wear and tear.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Wood: Solid wood and hardwood desks are as beautiful as they are timeless. They also come with a couple of drawbacks: They&rsquo;re heavy, making them difficult to move, and they aren&rsquo;t as durable as many performance office furniture materials. Because of this, wood desks are usually best used as a home office desk rather than in a commercial office setting.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Engineered wood: Engineered wood pairs affordability with durability. If you&rsquo;re looking for the &ldquo;solid wood&rdquo; look but don&rsquo;t want to pay the price tag that matches it, engineered wood can be an ideal alternative.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Metal: Metal is lightweight, affordable, and durable, making it a popular material for office desks, especially in modern silhouettes. You&rsquo;ll most commonly see it incorporated in desks with mixed materials. For example, you might see a laminate or wood top paired with a metal frame.&nbsp;</p> </li> </ul> <h2 dir="ltr">The Most Popular Desk Styles</h2> <ul> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">L-shaped desk: L-shaped desks are made of 2 parts&mdash;a desk and a return. The main desk is typically larger. The return is the smaller, often more narrow side, designed to be used as an additional workspace.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Standing desk: Standing desks, or adjustable-height standing desks, allow users to move between working in standing or seated positions.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Executive desk: Executive desks are large desks that usually come with 2 pedestals (filled storage cabinets, filing, or drawers) on either side.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Writing desk: Writing desks have a tablelike design that consists of a spacious work surface and minimal built-in storage.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Compact desk: Compact desks are designed for small spaces. You can find compact writing desks, L-shaped desks, and compact U-shaped desks, providing you with work surface options even when square footage is a challenge.&nbsp;</p> </li> <li aria-level="1" dir="ltr"> <p dir="ltr" role="presentation">Corner desk: Corner desks are designed for use in the corner of a room. They differ from L-shaped desks in that the desk has a rounded surface in the corner. However, many people use the terms &ldquo;L-shaped desk&rdquo; and &ldquo;corner desk&rdquo; interchangeably.&nbsp;</p> </li> </ul> <p dir="ltr">Learn more in the <a href="https://www.nationalbusinessfurniture.com/blog/complete-guide-to-office-desks">Complete Guide to Office Desks</a>.&nbsp;</p> <h2 dir="ltr">How to Measure for a Small Desk</h2> <p dir="ltr">Measure the size of your office to determine how large of a desk will be possible within the space. When measuring the square footage of the area where you&rsquo;d like to put your desk, allow at least 2 feet of space around it.</p> <h2 dir="ltr">How to Measure for Office Desk Delivery</h2> <p dir="ltr">Measure doorways and stairwells and check against the desk dimensions to ensure the desk will make it into your office. If you need to navigate slender doorways or narrow stairwells on the way to your room of choice, then you may want to consider getting a smaller desk or one that comes ready to assemble (RTA) to make sure that it will fit.</p> &nbsp; <h2 dir="ltr">Need Help?
