Before the pandemic, at-home offices were largely optional. Now, working from home has been the status quo for some time and will likely continue in the future. Considering the new emphasis placed on home offices, it’s important to love your work space. That’s completely possible no matter the setting with the perfect minimalist desk. Because home office spaces tend to be smaller, the desk is a focal point. It’s where one spends the most time, so deciding on the best option is crucial.

There are a few points to focus on when desk shopping: it’s function (Will it home a computer or serve as a writing desk?), its size or shape, and what materials best fit your room’s aesthetic.  Spruce up any location with one of these new minimalist desks.

Minimalist Wooden Desks

The benefits of minimalism in home décor include versatility and, in this case, double the functionality. With a bevy of finish options, a modern wooden desk can serve myriad of purposes. Choose a spacious tabletop to leave ample room for necessities like a laptop and desk décor. When designing a smaller workspace, like in a living room or bedroom, these versatile wooden desks can easily turn into a console or side table during your off-hours.

Minimalist Writing Desks

Writing desks derive from 17th-century bureaus. In the 1600s, fine wood (like walnut and oak) was a luxury. The originating models featured a sloped top surface that raised open for storage. By the 1750s, modern versions were adapted with flat tops and bottom drawers. Revisit the classic silhouette with a contemporary design. 

Minimalist Standing Desks

When being sedentary for too long is more exhausting than working, itself, a standing desk can be a welcome change. Make your space work for you with an elevated option to fit a modern office. Seville Classics is among the most-loved brands. The desk’s height can be adjusted electrically with a remote control. The SmartDesk Corner from Autonomous offers ample space that can conveniently tuck away. One can also bridge form and function by prioritizing décor aesthetics with an eye-catching, wooden design from UpLift. 

Minimalist Marble Desks

A sleek slab of stone adds an instant element of polish to any room. Consider a marble desk for a modern and elevated office space: one with a clean, minimal, and high-end theme would be ideal. The Cumulus writing desk features golden hardware in a retro pattern and a bottom level for storage. Incorporating several different materials into one piece creates instant interest and luxury. The Augustus desk entails a lacquered top, brass metal legs, and a marble column base.
