How to Guides

Maximise your corners >

Finding space to squeeze a desk into your home can often mean making the best use of your corners. Corner desks are functional and space efficient in small rooms. They can be made of a variety of materials and come in a wealth of styles to suit all taste and budgets.

Choose a desk to fit your décor, whether your style is modern or traditional there are many options available from multiple retailers. If light is an issue, choose a glass corner desk or choose a desk with a White Gloss reflective finish to bounce light around the room.

Benefits of a Corner Desk

1) Utilise underused corners with maximum impact
2) Create a productive space to work reclaim your sofa, bed and dining area from work!
3) Add an additional surface which can also be used for entertaining and storage


How to Choose a Corner Desk

Work out how much space you have to fit a desk. Measure both the front width and the length/depth of your available space. Take note of any features which means you have to move the desk away from the wall e.g. skirting boards at floor level, wall sockets, etc. Decide if you need a corner desk with storage, or whether you have ample storage areas close at hand. Do you sometimes need a larger work area? Then an extending/rotating corner desk might be more suitable. Some corner desks have extendable arms which sit underneath the desk until you need it.

Don’t have a suitable corner? Not to worry, some corner desks can be placed against a wall to make a home office area instead.
