Desks with Superstructure: very popular in Victorian times and earlier. These desks - which take many forms Dickens desks bankers desks roll top desks Carlton House Desks etc - have a raised structure at the back of the desk with drawers small cupboards or pigeon holes for stationery. Many of these desks were designed to stand against a wall and have a relatively plain or even unfinished rear elevation. Some desks have flat writing surfaces some have raised writing slopes with storage underneath - those with the slope are becoming popular again since the slope provides an ideal "work station" for a laptop computer.
L shaped Bow Front Computer Desk - While still offering some space savings these desks are a little bulkier that traditional L shaped desks but usually take up less wall space. Made from either PVC or wood these desks are sturdier than the cheap fiber board desks. The bow front desks also take up less wall space.
Standard or Customized Design - Standard ready to use home office desks are already available in the market. You simply visit the furniture store take a look at various desks and buy the one that meets your requirements. You can find all types of standard designs. You may have to visit different stores to find exactly what you need. The advantage of a custom-design desk is that it can be made exactly according to your specific needs. You may have your own particular design in mind. The furniture maker will design your home office desk exactly the way you want it.
Antique Writing Furniture - Flat Top Desks: these are the most popular type of desk being the most versatile particularly when a large work space is required for paperwork and/or computer equipment. Various sizes are available from the smallest 36" (91cm) width up to larger workspaces of 72" (183cm) or greater. The depth of the desk is important - the narrower the desk the closer the working material is to the user - a deeper desk allows more storage but some of it may be out of arms reach.
