August 6, 2018

Making the most of a small work area can be challenging. With these corner desk ideas, you will be able to save on space while creating a beautiful and functional workplace at home.

A corner desk is one of the best ways to really maximize space in your office. I really went back and forth when we were designing HQ (this is the way we lovingly refer to my home office where all the Designer Trapped magic happens, LOL). I love how corner desks are available in tons of styles and sizes, so no matter your office dimensions and look, it is easy to find the perfect one.

Anytime I am thinking about a new piece of furniture, I always look at DIY options first because they are almost always more affordable. And they are WAY more budget-friendly in this case! Some of these DIY corner desk tutorials are as little as $50! But if you are in a rush for time or not feeling a DIY, or you just really want to purchase something (which happens to me too sometimes) there are tons of corner desks you can buy. I picked my ten favorites for you and they are below the DIY's if you want to skip straight to the ready to purchase desks :)

Can you believe all these awesome options? I ended up having way more room than I realized, and I needed a second table I could move around for taping videos and crafting, so I decided to go in a different direction. But I just had to share all these awesome options for computer desks with you! I see a few I would seriously consider building if I decide one of the girls needs a corner desk, and a few I would love to splurge on ;).
