Solid Wood Computer Armoire

A solid wood computer cabinet offers an excellent workplace and is an asset to your interior.  They come in a variety of styles, most of which do not resemble the standardized “computer desk” of your local department store.  You can turn this technology, which can clutter your work area, into an imposing facility that will add elegance and grace to any room.  Better still, a well-designed workspace can make your efforts more efficient, while working in an imposing workspace enhances your business presentation – whether virtual or face-to-face.  Your computer desk should reflect your professionalism and expertise.

Choosing your computer desk

People who work with computers are not all the same and have no requirements for their computer desk.  Some may require space for a tower or desktop unit, while others may have a paper-thin laptop desk.  Some people do most of their work virtually, others may do some of their work by hand using traditional materials and a scanner, or need hardback reference books.  The laptop unit takes up very little space, while the traditional materials require shelves or filing drawers to keep the work area tidy.  The required storage space affects the space required on the computer desk.

Match your decor

Not every home has a particular decor, but many do.  If your home is shabby chic, you can have plenty of it when choosing your computer desk.  However, if your interior design is heavily inspired by Victorian, Edwardian, or Tudor, you have more constraints on the appropriate choice for a computer desk.  Cottage or land also has restrictions on design.

Make it sturdy

Solid is a good operational word for computer desk – no one likes it when thousands of dollars worth of electronic equipment fall down in a loud crash.  Fortunately, “Solid” is the best term for the following choices at the computer desk.  You don’t have a choice either – they come in all sorts of styles.  Some brazenly present themselves as computer desks, while others are suitable for hiding the technology behind doors so as not to conflict with a historical topic.  From imposing solid to minimalist features, the options below are sure to find a computer workspace that suits your personality and home decor.  You won’t be disappointed with the variety of style, size and work space.

Desk with hutch

It doesn’t take much to transform this Eusebio by Harriet Bee – Hutch, required for assembly, into a computer desk.  The basics are already in place – the desktop, a utility drawer, and three left sorting drawers, plus (of course) the stable.  Use a drill bit to add small holes in the back of the computer desk so you can pull the power supply through – or add a surge protection strip.

High performance desk

Pre-assembled, large, dark cabinet with a fold-down desk takes very little to convert into a computer desk.  Access holes can be easily hidden in the back of the desk area, and the deep filing drawers can accommodate legal-sized files.  It was designed by Sunny Designs and is an excellent addition to a Victorian style room.

Vanity turned desk

Harriet Bee’s classic Eustice design, this rotated desk, will delight any female executive, from junior high class treasurer to active CEO of the company.  The side panels have shelves at the top and a row of drawers with a center drawer at the bottom.  Instead of a cosmetic mirror, the back is a sheet of cork that is suitable for pinning notes and sorting ideas.  No wiring holes required – the back is open between the desktop and the cork board.

Hideaway laptop desk

Your computer desk doesn’t have to scream “modern”, it just has to be functional.  The Anteus Armoire Desk by Gracie Oaks looks like an ordinary closet when the fold-down desk is in the upper position and the doors are closed.  However, it is just the place to hide a state-of-the-art laptop or tablet that is ready to use right out of the box.

Hand painted secretary

If you love old world charm you will be amazed by this hand painted cabinet with birds and flowers.  If one exudes the virtue of handwritten letters, it is easy to hide a laptop, while the drawers can hold handy supplies for handwritten notes.  The specifics of the design may vary slightly as it is actually hand painted.

Concealed computer desk

When closed, this piece of furniture looks like an old-fashioned wardrobe or similar piece of furniture.  When opened, the D-Art Collection computer cabinet reveals a pull-out seat, a sturdy desk area, spacious pigeon holes, an upper bookshelf and side rooms suitable for a computer tower and a printer unit.

Pedestal desk and hutch

Your home office has never looked better than with this Crafts Pedestal Cottage style desk and stall from Home Styles.  The wood is oak colored, with a formal hutch above, a filing drawer to the right under the desk, and a knee hole for a computer tower to the left.  The device is already prepared for cabling.

Double pedestal desk Hutch

Enjoy an Eagle Ridge double pedestal solid wood desk with a Caribbean rum finish.  The upper stall has doors to hide private (or just plain messy) items, and the plinths contain drawers.  The center can easily carry a laptop unit and has pull-out side compartments for additional work space.  It goes well with cottage or a shabby chic interior design.

Cherry Finish computer cabinet

It looks like an old fashioned wardrobe, but when you open it, it’s the Brookhaven Computer Cabinet from Hooker Furniture.  The clear cherry finish is suitable for any boudoir or salon.  Professional assembly on request.  Overall, it’s a solid piece of furniture that is meant to become a family heirloom.

Slim, replacement, corner stable

The side cabinet and bookcase of the Cabot corner offer minimalist access to a beautiful office corner.  The dark wood might stand out against a pale background, and the desk and bookcase provide ample storage and work space.  The computer desk is on the other side of the corner and accessible from both sides.  Deep drawers provide space for hanging files.
