Corner Desks Under £200 – Our Pick of the Best
It doesn’t look like home working will be going anywhere anytime soon. We’re currently in the midst of the third lockdown and the guidance to work from home where possible remains in place.
So that’s as good an excuse as any to rejig your home office. For me, it’s been a tie between going for an adjustable height desk or a pretty corner desk with some storage. And in the end the latter nabbed it.
Thing is, we don’t all want to splash hundreds upon hundreds fo kit out an office. So let’s take a look at some budget options.
As quite the fan of the L Shaped desk myself, here’s my pick of the best available for under £200.
Corner Desks Under £200
Vasagle Le-Shaped Corner Desk With Shelves
So this is one pretty corner desk! The colour is stunning and the shelves are useful too. To be honest, with open shelves like this I tend to use them for more decorative items rather than as practical storage. Nonetheless, it’s pretty and would suit a more rustic looking room.
FMD Corner Combination Desk
This is one of the bigger L shaped desks on our list but we’ve highlighted it as one of the best too on the basis of ALL THAT STORAGE!
We’ve had this one ourselves and the storage really is impressive. With a couple of the boxes provided and plenty of space to buy more canvas boxes, you can store files in here effectively or use it to hide the clutter lying around your office to give it the semblance of tidy. Not saying I do that, of course. But some people do.
Blue Horizon Corner Home Office Desk
This is the cheapest corner desk on our list and is probably the best for super tight spaces. At one point I was working literally in a storage room and this would have even fitted in there. So if you are looking for a little work space that will help you to make the most of what is a tight fit, then this could be worth looking at. It even manages to work in some storage space. You’ll probably want to pair this with a small home office chair.
EUCO L-Shaped Computer Desk
One of the main appeals of the EUCO L shaped office desk (apart from the storage) is the fact it’s available in a lot of different colours including black and dark brown. So you can choose one to match your office design or just your personal preference.
L-Shape Computer Desk with Shelves
This is very similar to the EUCO one above but in a different colour and it’s one we thought worth a mention as a standalone given the popularity of the grey colour choice for desks in general.
The Quick Buying Guide for Corner Desks
A few things to check with any corner desk you think about buying:
- Check the measurements. They’ve all got measurements listed on Amazon and it’s important you check them and measure against your room across all measurements (including height)
- Is it flat packed or assembled. These all come flat packed, but if you’re like me (and honestly, I’m pretty much as useful as a goldfish with a screwdriver when it comes to assembling flat pack) you might to want to opt for one where you can choose to add on assembly. Sometimes it’s just much better to have someone else assemble it for you
- Check the reviews. As with anything, a corner desk will have people saying nice things and not so nice things! Read them all and look for the pros, the cons and then also look at how the seller is responding. With a particularly big product, returning it’s a pain so you want to know the seller is supportive in the event of any problems
- As soon as your l shaped desk arrives, if you plan to self assemble, make sure you’ve got all the pieces in the box first. Nothing is quite as annoying as getting half way through a flat pack assembly only to find you’re missing one tiny piece that throws the whole thing off
