What to Look For in a Modern Office Desk

As you shop for modern desks or a computer desk, there's a few points to keep in mind:

Do You Use a Computer?

Obviously, you're here, so... yeah!

But, more specifically, when and how do you use a computer? How does your office desk need to accommodate it? Do you want to store a CPU out of sight, or do you work from a laptop?

What Else Do You Need to Store?

Aside from your computer, your office has other knick knacks and paperwork.

Consider if you need filing cabinets or shelves to keep your books and work materials organized. As you shop, take into account how you use your spaces now, and what you hope to achieve with a new office desk!

An easy customer organization idea: use a crate to store items on shelves.

Where Will You Place It?

Where do you plan to place your office desk?

A great place is in a corner of one of your bedrooms. But, given today's #WFH requirements, you might need to places yours in an entryway, kids room, or even a dining room!

Regardless, save yourself some headache, by carefully planning and measuring your intended place. Then search for a desk that fits your needs.

How to Complete Your Office Space

Once you choose a desk, take a look at your space with new eyes. Are there missing items? You may want to shop for matching bookcases, a modern area rug, or even a white office chair or mid century modern accent chair. Or create a guest room with our favorite folding sofa bed!

Consider Price

Let's face it: we're not all Elon Musk (phew!). An office desk isn't Twitter: some willy nilly weekend purchase. And you don't have All. The. Money.

When it comes to price, at Modern Digs we try to strike a balance. We don't carry the low end stuff because, let's be honest, it doesn't hold up well!

Instead we search for top quality brands that bring a great mix of value. Don't forget to account for how an item ships, available deals, and other ways to save. Perhaps try and catch a sale.

If you're like us, you spend a good amount of time working. Your desk should reflect that investment in yourself!


When it comes to finding the perfect piece for your home office or computer desk, there are plenty of options to choose from. Whether you're looking for a stylish and elegant office desk that will perfectly accent your space, or a functional modern office desk with plenty of storage space, we've got you covered.
