Size: Does it fit the room? Can you access the desk and other parts of the room? Is it a comfortable height (small adjustments can be made - but only small changes)? Kneehole height and width? Check the depth of the desk so that the work surface can actually be reached?
Davenport desk: A small desk with an inclined lifting desktop giving access to a large compartment with ample storage space for paper and other writing implements. Escritoire: A small portable writing desk with a sloping front door hinged at the bottom edge that can be opened to provide a writing surface. It is usually larger than a lap desk.
Glass And Steel Desks - These can be very affordable or quite expensive. Some of the least expensive L shaped desks are made from glass and steel. They can be ideal for smaller corners but have minimal features. The corner usually has a raised platform for a computer screen and there is a small platform at the bottom in the corner for the CPU. Other than that however there is little built in storage included.
Design Style Color and Material - Do you need feet rest in your desk? Should it have keyboard holder that slides inside when not in use? Home office desks are available in a variety of designs styles colors and materials. Choose a desk that matches your needs and preferences. Select a desk with sober color. It will match well with any type of interior theme. You do not want to be distracted by bright colors while working. Office desks made of expensive wood or steel can be expensive. There are computer desks that can be assembled and disassembled quickly. Such a design is easy to move and transport.
Desk and Table Combinations: As mentioned above there are circumstances where more work space (or meeting space) is required. In this instance a combination of desk and writing or library table could be appropriate (or boardroom type table).
PC or Laptop - A laptop does not require a desk with too many slots. A simple flat top desk is sufficient for the purpose. However a desktop computer requires proper slots in the desk to accommodate all the computer parts. Make sure the desk can accommodate additional computer accessories like printer. Less space is needed for an all-in-one printer but more space is needed if the printer and scanner are two separate units. If you use a landline phone or fax machine then the desk should have the space or slot for such a device.
