If you are working at home, then you won’t really want to keep replacing any furniture that you require. Whilst you can get away with less than you need if you were working in an office block, there are certain things that you definitely require, and most definitely a desk that you can do all your important work at.
Your own requirements will most probably differ depending on your type of work. Nicky has a wooden table which she sews from; designers may need a table that tilts such as this:
But here we are going to look at glass work desks. And in particular, glass work desks that cost less than £100.
A glass work desk can look much smarter than a wooden or metal one. Of course you need to ensure that the desk is made of safety glass. Whilst they can be quite heavy, you wouldn’t want something that you are going to be spending your working hours at to be flimsy, would you?
Without doubt you will need to be able to assemble your desk at home, and ideally in the final location. That will save carrying it from one room to another – see what I said about being heavy above.
The size you go for will depend both upon your work requirements, but also the size of room you have. If you are aiming to put your home office in the unused space under your stairs, then you will not have room for a great big desk. Equally, if you need lots of work space, then it’s no good opting for a budget priced small desk – you’ll end up with your work in piles on the floor!
If you are using a tower computer, rather than a laptop, will you need a keyboard shelf? Does it have a hole near the back for cables to thread through to the screen?
What about paperwork? Do you need a shelf (maybe more than one?). Do you need built in drawer units? Or maybe you have your own filing cabinet already, so you just need a plain workdesk.
Here’s three of the best glass work desks for under £100. Which is your favourite? Mine is the Beyindfashion table, but the Royal Lifetree has some great reviews if you find your budget is a little lower.
