Desks for every day, work or play 

Everyone’s work, hobbies and studies are different. Find desks that reflect this diversity and are designed for different needs and preferences. With the IKEA desk collection you’ll find gaming desks optimized for a gamer set-up, ergonomic office desks, space-saving corner desks and everything in between.

Many desks are height-adjustable, meaning you can switch between standing and sitting throughout the day with the push of a button, turn of a hand crank or by adjusting the table legs. Other desks have collapsible tabletops, allowing you to add more surface space if your project gets messy with papers and stationery. Small kids desks are designed to inspire creativity and help with homework, while storage desks with drawers make organizing a breeze.

From rustic solid wood desks for the home to glossy white standing desks to glare-reducing matte black gaming desks, there’s a desk for every style, purpose and project. Easily create an affordable and modular office space wherever you work with table and desk systems, choose laptop tables to take your work anywhere or find everything you need in ergonomic support with desk and chair sets. Productivity, gaming or tackling your latest art project has never felt more comfortable.

Selecting the right height in desks is easy

The standard height for a computer desk is between 28-30 inches, with some desks falling below and above this range to accommodate all heights. Of course, that gets easier with IKEA desks with adjustable height that can be paired with adjustable height desk chairs.

It’s easy to determine which height is most comfortable for you. When sitting down, the desk should reach up to your elbows. You should be able to comfortably rest your arms on the surface at a roughly 90-degree angle. There should be roughly 14-16 inches from the top of your knees to the bottom of the desk. And from the bottom of the desk to the floor, there should be roughly 24 inches. Finding the right positioning and ergonomic support in your workspace gets even easier with height adjustable desks.
