Marina Wright. Home Desk. February 05th , 2018.
I was at a yard sale a couple of weeks ago and I spotted a roll top desk. It was exactly what I had been looking for to liven up my home. A roll top desk has a sense of style all its own and few pieces of furniture could compete with such a classic. I decided that I had to have it and immediately approached the owner with an offer. He was happy to accept it and we, with the help of his son, got it lifted and safely packed into my van. My own son and husband will be thrilled to lift in out when I get home (I am sure about it). When I reached the driveway I left the desk to take a look around my house to find a spot for it that would benefit from such a beautiful piece of furniture. I wanted a spot that had a lot of natural light but the room would need to be big enough to fit the desk as well. I found it; the perfect spot was waiting impatiently in the spare bedroom. This would be a great spot for the roll top desk and it had a large window that was facing east. The room was only used a few times a year when we had a get together so I figured that it was a perfect room for it.
Simple is Often Enough. Maybe you prefer something less traditional, or you have children around and expensive office furniture would not be practical. A less ambitious secretarys desk might suffice for a laptop and three-in-one printer, which is all many people use nowadays. A 58 inch wide Paula Deen letter-writing desk offers all the space you need, plus room for files and documents. Designed for the home office, this is in white and easily cleaned. Its 30 inch depth is more than enough for a laptop and printer - and a telephone of course. You could add a filing cabinet if you need one, or a bookcase or display cabinet to complete a small but very functional office that would suffice for most purposes, whether you are running a home business or working from home for an employer.
In many homes, and smaller business offices, finding room for a large bulky computer desk can be a significant problem. A computer desk with all its accompanying electrical cords, and paraphernalia, can take up a lot of wall space which is in short supply. One really good solution to this problem is to use a computer corner desk. Instead of occupying a lot of space along a wall, this corner computer desk simply fits into a corner of the room, and takes up a lot less room. You may be quite amazed at how much more space you have when you install a corner desk. An additional benefit is that the birds nest of electrical cords can now be hidden behind the computer desk in the corner of the room. In other words the desk is very functional and neat.
A quite private space for studying can be as dazzling as a handcrafted desk or as simple as a chair and TV table. The key is to make the study desk fun, intriguing and a place that emits personal style. Outline the needs and requirements of the one using the desk. A math-challenged "tween" might prefer a cubby with space for electronic gear such as iPod, computer and headphones. A bedroom is the usual place for such a desk because it has to be away from exterior temptations. A buzzer which could be heard in another part of the home could signal when help is needed with an assignment. Keep the door to the study area closed and patrolling the area from time to time could stop kitchen trips and unmerited diversions such as TV.
I helped to supervise as my son and husband carefully moved the desk through the front door and up the stairs and into the spare room. As they set it down I know for sure that this was the perfect place for the roll top desk. There was just something that told me that this desk belonged in this room. I awake every morning and still to this day get excited to go to my antique roll top desk to get some work done. The sun shines through the large window and gives enough brilliant light to see without turning on any lights. This is my new favorite room, my get away. When I need to concentrate and get some work done I just take a seat in my roll top desk. It is the best find I have ever found. I still remember the day that I found the desk and will remember it every time I sit down in front of it.
