Ellen Grey Corner Desk

5 corner desks for small spaces

When you have lived in a large home for many years and decide to downsize, you may need to adopt some strategies and solutions to help you make the best use of your small space.  There is certainly no reason to compromise on organization and style – a small space can be even more organized and beautiful than a large space. Corner desks work well in small spaces, helping to turn unused corners into functional  areas.

A corner desk is usually designed as a triangular wedge that fits snugly into a corner. If you do plan to use it for work, choose one that has built-in storage, either drawers or shelves, to keep essentials off the surface.  Choose a colour and style to compliment your existing decor and check measurements to make sure that you will be able to sit comfortably.
