Whether you work remotely or at the office, having a good desk can be a great asset for your home. Isn’t it always better to have a work surface you can use specifically to do some writing or work on? A modern writing desk, however, is much more than a simple workstation.

While buying one is not a huge investment, this simple home office furniture solution can be very purposeful. There are many ways in which you can use one, and we’re here to help you discover some of them. Investing in an executive desk or an L-shaped desk might be a more binding option due to the size. However, a small writing desk is space saving, affordable, and easy to fit in any space.

A modern writing desk is the perfect solution for those who need a simple yet reliable workstation. It can work within a variety of interiors, and it’s easy to pair with anything. It can serve as a great primary or secondary workstation.

Now that the world of office work started shifting to remote options, having a good desk at home is essential. And what’s better than getting a multifunctional one? A writing desk is a versatile home solution that can serve so many purposes, even within smaller apartments. 

Let’s look at the many ways in which you can use a modern writing desk in your home.

As a Casual Workstation

If you’re not bound to your desk for countless hours a day but still need a good work surface, a modern writing desk is perfect for you. It doesn’t occupy a lot of space, and it generally works well with most styles and interiors.

You can add it to your living room or bedroom anywhere close to a wall or a window to create a little office space. Most modern writing desks are lightweight and easy to reposition, making decorating and furnishing easy as a breeze. You will be able to change the disposition of your desk whenever you decide to explore different decor possibilities.

A modern writing desk is an optimal solution to add a reliable and sturdy work surface to your place with style and ease. Use it to complete daily tasks, do occasional writing and note taking, and enjoy its wide surface to place your favorite items on top. When placed in a bedroom or guest room, it can also be used to display decor items or organize personal belongings.

Place it next to a bright window if you’d like to get some sunlight when sitting down at your desk. Natural light instantly brightens every place and can serve as a productivity boost when working or writing. 

As an Alternative Surface for Decor and Plants

Even if you don’t spend much time writing or working at a desk, a modern writing desk can still be useful  for you. It can serve as an alternative display solution for plants, decor items, books, and more. 

For example, some people like having a little desk or table in the entryway, so they can take advantage of an extra surface for keys or small items. It also helps keep the entryway organized, and everything is always in the right place.

A good, modern writing desk is usually sturdy enough to hold big computers and heavy items. This makes it a reliable surface for bigger plants that might not be safe to put on shelves. Some writing desks also come with built-in storage such as drawers, making it effectively a storage solution on its own. 

You can also place your writing desk in a hallway or empty space in your apartment to brighten it up. An extra surface to lay things on is always handy, and a great-looking desk would definitely improve the look of an empty hallway. Since writing desks are usually very light and easy to transport, they’re quite versatile and can be easily moved around wherever they are needed.

As mentioned earlier, a modern writing desk looks especially great in a hall or entryway. It’s a great way to add an organized surface for keys, hats, and other items. It’s also very convenient when coming back in with big bags of groceries or other items. The sturdy and ample surface is wide enough to hold both daily essentials and other heavy items you might have when coming back home.

Moreover, it’s a wonderful option if you have many plants and not enough space near your windows. By adding a desk, you’ll gain more space for your plants, and will be able to let them bask in the sun.

As a Secondary Work Desk

If you’re lucky enough to have a separate home office and already have a big primary desk, don’t discard the idea of getting a modern writing desk. You can use it as a secondary workstation and place it in a separate room from your office.

Changing our environment when working can produce very surprising results. When we spend a lot of time cooped up in the same room, inspiration and creativity can run out quickly. This is why it’s great — if your space allows  — to have a secondary workstation.

It all depends on your space availability at home, but a writing desk can really be squeezed into a lot of different spaces. You can place it in your living room in a corner or next to the wall, or in your entryway or even bedroom. Wherever you feel inspired to work, that can become your second work area. 

Anytime you feel like you’re running out of inspiration, take a small break and start working at your secondary desk. It’s really incredible what a change of scenery can do sometimes!

When you’re not working, you can repurpose your secondary desk as a console table or sofa table and use it as a convenient storage and display solution. You can lay out some of your personal or work materials, plants, and other items. It’s always handy to have an extra work surface you can use to lay things on, both temporarily and permanently.
