          Bring home the best work desk for your space

          With so many styles and designs available, choosing the right work desk or study table can be quite confusing. This task becomes so much easier if you know what you are looking for! Here’s all the information you need before you head out to buy a workstation table or a computer desk for your home.

          Picking the right size and surface area

          If you have limited floor area, you’d probably want a sleek, small desk. Or you can choose a corner desk that can help you use your limited space more efficiently. Another excellent option for small spaces is a drop-leaf study desk where one section of the counter space is hinged and can be dropped when you don’t need much space at the top. 

          If you have ample space in your room, buy a workstation table with multiple drawers and cabinets. These come with ample space to store all your extra supplies and keep your space neat and tidy. 

          Whether you are looking for a small table for your laptop or you need a desk with a large tabletop for your gaming zone, at IKEA we can help you find the best option at reasonable rates. 

          Choose the right material

          Study desks and work tables are mostly constructed with steel, engineered wood or solid wood. A wood desk is super sturdy and easy to clean. A desk made of engineered wood is quite durable and usually costs less than a solid wood desk. If you are looking for a work desk that's modern, affordable and tough, a steel work table might be the right fit! At IKEA, you will find a range of contemporary work table and computer desk designs that combine various materials to give you aesthetic masterpieces for your home. 

          Select a smart option

          Hate being surrounded by a mess of cables and wires while working? Make sure to choose a workstation table that has holes, cord channels and other solutions to keep them hidden. And if you really hate a mess, you’d never want your tabletop to look overcrowded, right?IKEA brings to you a range of work tables with plenty of storage. Choose a work desk or computer table with drawers and cabinets for your files, documents and extra supplies. 

          Consider your work style

           Do you feel most productive while sitting on your sofa? Then a small laptop stand is the best work table for you. Or maybe you do your best work while sitting up on the bed. In this case, you need a bed tray. And if you find it difficult to sit for more than a few hours, a standing work desk might be your best option. If you are looking for a work desk for your home, taking your work style into consideration is crucial. 

          Choose the right height

          Make sure your work desk or study table is the right height to keep away neck and back issues. Plus, working on a desk that isn't of appropriate height can be extremely discomforting. A good desk or desktop table height is when your table reaches up to your elbows while you sit at it. You should be able to rest your arms on the surface with ease. The desk should also have ample space beneath so that there's a considerable gap between your knees and its bottom. 

          Design your desk with IKEA

          Couldn't find what you are looking for? IKEA lets you build your customized modular work by putting together various functional components. Choose from a variety of underframes and tabletop options to create a desk that suits your style. Add storage drawers or a drawer unit to keep your workspace tidy and organized.

          Desk and chair sets for your workspace

          Don’t waste time buying your home office essentials separately. Choose an IKEA desk and chair set instead! But that’s not all we have in store for you! We also offer several options in computer table and chair sets with storage combinations for a complete, functional work-from-home setup. 


          What type of table is best for studying?

          An ideal study table offers ample surface space to work comfortably and enough storage space to keep your supplies. It sits well in the allotted space and complements the decor of the room. Make sure to choose a sturdy study desk that is designed for heavy use. 

          How do you fit a desk in a tiny space?

          Choose a work table that is meant for smaller spaces. Drop-leaf desks, corner workstations and sleek laptop tables are a few options you can opt for. 

          Is studying at a desk better?

          Yes! Having a study table or desktop table can help minimize discomfort, concentrate better and increase productivity. It also allows you to keep everything you need handy so that you don’t waste time searching for books, stationery or other supplies. 

          Which direction is best for the work desk?

          According to Vastu, keeping your work desk in the west, south or southwest direction can help generate a productive environment for work. Alternately, keeping your work desk facing a window will ensure you get sunlight during the day.

          Which table is best for computers?

          Before you buy a computer table, measure your space accurately to pick the right size.  A solid wood or engineered wood desk with a spacious tabletop is a great option for a computer table. Also look for features like drawers, open shelves, pull-out shelves, cabinets and cup holders if you want well-functioning computer table furniture. 

          How do I choose a work table?

          Before you buy a workstation desk, you need to consider factors like size, shape, build material, storage capacity, portability and height. 

          What is a good work table size?

          That depends on your work style. If you just need something to keep your laptop on, a small desk is an ideal option. If you are planning to set up a dedicated workspace at home, you need a large work desk with a spacious tabletop, cabinets and/or drawers.
