These last few weeks of working from home have had as pining for the spacious, single-use desks that our offices used to offer.
There we didn’t have to share our working space with children having breakfast, partners doing bills or flatmates playing Monopoly.
And though we might vow to appreciate the dedicated workspaces we so took for granted before the coronavirus pandemic, it doesn’t mean that we can’t make things better for ourselves in the interim.
Buying yourself a desk might feel like an extravagance, especially at the moment where budgets feel tighter than usual, but we’ve found some affordable alternatives.
All these desks offer space and organisation but, crucially, are under £50.
From floating desks to a compact writing desk, we’ve rounded up a selection that will keep you sane and productive. The rest is up to you...
