17 Days Of Homeoffice Desk Styles- Day 17

Wood Desk Finishes


Grey wood finishes impart a calm, neutral tone, with a modern edge. Less warm and traditional than natural wood, yet brighter and less serious than an all black model, they strike a fine balance.

Wood Desk Finishes

As the most common desk construction material, wood models come in a range of finishes, with the most popular being natural, white, black, and grey.


The natural wood tone, whether stained lighter or darker, is by far the most common desk finish available. With a classic look that conveys timelessness, it’s no wonder these have remained popular to this day.

Desktop Material


Laminate surfaces overlay a protective material on top of the wood construction.  This coating is usually plastic of some sort, meant to keep the desk stain and warping resistant. These are not the most luxurious desktops, but they provide practicality, versatility, and peace of mind.

Desktop Material


A metal desktop is the ultimate in utilitarian design. Resisting stains and scuffs, and remaining cool to the touch, it’s another modern material that’s often paired with a modern design desk, like glass. Metal desktops can be paired for a high contrast look with traditional wood constructed desks.

Desktop Material


Glass surfaces add a boldly modern touch to any desk. Paired with wood or metal construction, the glass expands visual space and lightens the entire piece of furniture. Often removable for cleaning, maintenance, or moving purposes, glass desktops can be found in a variety of shapes and configurations.

Desktop Material

The desktop itself is where you’ll make contact with the desk, and where the vast majority of interaction with the furniture occurs. Whether concealing storage below or acting as a simple table top, the material determines most how the desk looks and feels while it’s being used.


Wood surfaces are the most traditional form of desktop. These often manifest on top of an all-wood desk, but can also be mounted atop metal frames

  1. Standing Desk (i.e. Adjustable Height Desks)

In recent years, there’s been a lot of health discussions around how unhealthy it is to sit for extended periods of time.  The result is the growth in the popularity of stand-up desks due to the purported health benefits of working part of the time at a stand-up desk.

There are 3 main types of stand-up desks:

  1. A desk accessory that gives you the option to work at your regular desk standing up
  2. Entire desks that can be raised and lowered.
  3. Static stand up desks that are always in an elevated position.

  1. Roll-Top Desk

Growing up my parents had a spectacular antique roll-top desk in they living room they had bought at some old antique store and refinished.  However, you don’t have to buy an antique one; you can still buy them new as well.

A roll-top desk is one where a hood rolls down over the desk surface to secure all contents.  While not the most practical desk, especially for computing, it can be a beautiful piece of furniture in any office, living room or master bedroom.

3 configurations:

  • Drawers on both sides;
  • Drawers on the left side; and
  • Drawers on the right side.
