Some of us prefer to work from home, some of us prefer the office, but the happy medium between the two is a great quality home office desk from Ryman® UK. No more working from your kitchen table or from the unsupported languor of your bed, not with your very own home desk to work properly from.
For university students returning home over summer or those who study remotely, it can be frustrating to be away from your university campus or study campus. A flat surface in a quiet room can be hard to come by in your flat, student halls, or family home, so any respite from noise is a top advantage to your work! A home office desk provides you with the perfect option to study and revise from home, with enough room for your books, notebooks, revision aids, and laptop. You could even fit a printer on your desk if you so chose to! Our range is perfect for students, because we have perfect options for every room size. A small home office desk will tuck nicely into the corner of your room, and there’s plenty of home office desk ideas to play around with when customising and kitting it out.
For those in the working world, the growth of remote working and roles has been unparalleled. There’s so many opportunities to work for great companies and people without being hampered by simple geography; now you can work remotely with your own flat surface and not feel your productivity suffer. If you’re looking for home office desk ideas, you’ve found the right place. We have pop-up, small home office desks, black simplistic framed desks, and those with built in storage, drawers, and shelving units so they blend into your home decor. There are plenty of different options so your new work surface doesn’t feel like a bolt-on to your home, but rather a part of it.
Require something smaller, or not quite a desk? A home office table doesn’t have to be used as a desk to work at, instead it can be used as a surface to house your printer or scanner - especially if you have wireless devices. This keeps them elevated and off the floor, and at an easy height to use without fuss or worry. Even if you are struggling for space in your already furnished and decorated home, our small pop-up desks make it easy to assemble your workspace and then pack it away again. Don’t forfeit your play space to work if you don’t have to! Not when Ryman® UK has plenty of options for your room.
If your child requires a workspace for projects, homework, and revision for schoolwork because it's getting to crunch time in the school term, then a child’s office desk for them would be a great idea. This helps to teach them structure, separate work from family life, and give them a dedicated space to concentrate on their important sums and worksheets. Even for fun things for drawing, painting, and crafting, a child’s desk is a great surface for glue stick smudges and everything else involved!
Home Office Desk FAQs
Where to put a desk in a home office?
Choosing where to put your new home office desk can be tricky. You need to consider space, productivity, and aesthetic appearance of how the rest of your furniture will fit in with your new addition. The old cliche of writers gazing out of windows from their desk still rings true; we think you should definitely place your home office desk next to or facing a window. The natural light during the day will help ease eye strain for both laptop or computer screens and manually writing in notepads and project books. Furthermore, a gentle breeze or airflow through the open window will be a welcome reprieve on warmer days. If you’re someone who believes in feng shui, or simply doesn’t want their back to the door whilst working, then placing the desk diagonal to and facing the door of your study will make sure you don’t feel uneasy about people coming and going, and not interrupt the stream of energy as put forwards by feng shui.
What do you need for your desk in your home office?
So you’ve chosen your new desk for your home office, now what do you kit it out with? Well, first things first, everything needs its place and an organised desk is a good desk. You need somewhere to properly display your stationery, files, papers, and other assorted equipment in easily accessible yet functional storage solutions. For this, you need desk organisers and storage options such as folder holders, memo pad holders, pen pots, and letter trays. This avoids a cluttered workspace, and as we all know a cluttered workspace can lead to stress and losing valuable bits of equipment.
If you’re creating a home study and work with a lot of documents or paperwork, then you’ll definitely benefit from a printer. We have many different options depending on your needs, whether it's for the occasional print out or regularly printing documents. Some of our models even come with combined capabilities, so whatever you require you can fit it comfortably on your small home office table.
You obviously need to fill your desk organisers with equipment and tools, so naturally you’re going to want a lot of pens and pencils. And, to turn your desk into a home office desk (emphasis on ‘home’) you need to add some flourishes to make it feel comfortable and personal! Personalised homeware, like cushions, canvases, and storage boxes, are great additions to your home office desk and study room in general.
