A writing desk is a must for any household. It's where you can get your work done, open your mail, pay your bills and hand write all those polite "thank you" notes. Even if your home lacks a dedicated room for a home office or your available space is limited, Bassett Furniture offers great solutions with a terrific selection of desks for small spaces.

Best Desks for Small Spaces

What are the characteristics of a great desk for small spaces?

Smaller Dimensions

For starters, it should accommodate all the usual activities while filling out a smaller profile. Most conventional office desks reach 30 inches in-depth and up to 60 inches in width. With limited space for your work area, you'll need to find a way to shed a few inches.

Small writing desks present a smaller footprint, offering a surface area between 18 and 28 inches deep. If you're looking to conserve space, width is another variable dimension. Desks for small spaces are ideal at 52 or 54 inches wide.


Another key attribute of a great small writing desk is storage. Desks for small spaces with storage allow you to keep all your workspace neat and organized. That extra storage capacity also frees up additional space in your closets, nightstands, or shelves.

There is no doubt about it; a great writing desk for small spaces will include storage capacity in the form of at least one or two drawers.


Just because you want a smaller desk doesn't mean you need to sacrifice quality. A small writing desk should not look or feel like it will blow over if you turn the air conditioning on or open a window. It should have the same authoritative feel as a full-size executive desk.

At Bassett Furniture, our small writing desks and small writing desks with drawers are constructed with the same craftsmanship, quality, and attention to detail as all of our fine furniture. You get the same high-quality assembly, just in a slightly smaller package.

That said, there is no substitute for the feeling you get from running your fingers along with a beautifully produced, high-quality piece of furniture.

Our advice? Find and pin all the small writing desks that vibe with your home's taste, style and decor. Then, visit a Bassett Furniture store nearest you to get a true feel for them in person.
