Choosing the right desk for your home office will make a huge difference to your comfort and productivity.
There’s a lot to think about, and with so many different desks to choose from (you’ll find hundreds over at Kit Out My Office), it can be difficult to know where to begin, and what to look for.
Make sure you get the perfect desk to match your home, budget and requirements with help from the tips in our expert guide on how to choose a desk for your Home.
Made to measure
Before purchasing your desk, the first step is to plan out the space. Think about where you’re going to position your desk, considering the location of light, doors, and power points.
Once you’ve decided where you’re going to place your desk, you’ll need to measure out the area, to see how much space you’ve got to play with. Before buying a desk, you can also use masking tape to place an outline so you can visualise how much space it’s going to take up.
When thinking about size, you’ll need to remember to leave room for your office chair and any additional storage, and to allow enough space to move around/access your desk comfortably.

Home office storage is invaluable – however organised and efficient you are, you’ll still need space for your stationery, papers and office supplies.
Those with smaller home offices may want to consider home office desks with integrated storage, which generally provide a better, more space-efficient solution.
Home office desks with storage come in a wide range of styles, from simple under desk drawers, to multi-level storage systems with overhead cupboards, under desk pedestals and integrated drawers.
If you want a larger desk and workspace but don’t want to compromise on storage, you may want to consider investing in separate under desk storage solutions.
Colour and finish
It’s important to remember that your office desk will be going into your home, so it has to look good!
Office desks come in a wide range of different wood grains and colours, with something to suit every home. When choosing a finish, it’s best to select something that matches or complements your existing furniture and décor.
At Kit Out My Office, we offer desks in a range of 16 colours, including a range of light, mid and dark wood tones, through monochrome black and white, to the vibrant shades of our HD Colour Desks.
