Time for a new home office desk? I’m sharing the best modern cheap desks you can buy online for a stylish and functional home office design.
Working from home is all the rage these days. And if it’s time to set up a dedicated home office or distance-learning space, the first thing you’ll need is a great desk.
But how do you know which inexpensive desk will work best for your home office setup?
I’ve rounded up my favorite cheap desks from around the web, and organized them by size and shape to help you find exactly what you need at a price you can afford.
Quick disclaimer: I’m looking at size, function, style, price, and reviews, but I haven’t actually seen these desks in-person. I encourage you to read reviews before you buy!
Desks for Small Spaces
If you live in a small apartment or dorm room and need a desk that can fold down when not in use, these options are perfect! They’re also great if you only need your desk occasionally.
Some of them have a drop-leaf, some fold up completely, and others are wall-mounted and have a very small footprint.

Small Corner Desks
If you need to set up your home office in the corner of your dining room or living room, a small corner desk might be the perfect solution.
A small rectangular desk is great if you’re just working on a laptop.
Large L-Shaped Desks
If you have a dedicated room for your home office, a corner desk is often a great way to make use of the space. The key to a stylish corner desk is to keep it light. Notice that these desks don’t look massive and bulky, even though they provide plenty of workspace. I recommend you forgo a large bookshelf add-on above the desk.
