Whether you work from home full-time, have a cool side-hustle you tackle in the evenings or just need somewhere to do some life-organising, it can be hard to motivate yourself to sit down and actually get to it. A desk that looks great not only creates a definitive workspace to help you get in the zone, we all know we’ll be happier to work somewhere we love, instead of trying to clear a space on the kitchen table.

We’ve found some stylish desks that deliver on practicality as well as good looks, so there’ll be no room for excuses why you still haven’t finished that project or sorted that tax return. From clever hidden storage to organising ideas, take a look at the desks that are our new productivity inspiration.

It’s all white

The Cupertino desk from BoConcept looks sleek and minimal, but in fact has three hidden storage compartments inside to keep all your belongings close-by, but out of sight. It also has built-in spaces for all the inevitable charging cables, from phones to laptops, to make sure your desk stays streamlined and clutter-free. Desk, €719 and Adelaide chair, €489. boconcept.com

Tidy table

If you’re working with a lot of paper, finding a system to keep it organised is essential unless you want to waste time searching for pages. As well as traditional under-desk drawers, this setup has made use of the wall too. Newspaper racks provide a simple way to file documents, and a magnetic board gives a place to display inspiration, reminders, ideas, or even just some photos. Kvissle wall newspaper rack €17, Spontan magnetic board €12, Spontan magnets €2.75 for a pack of four. ikea.com

Wooden workspace

Go for simple design with this classic Hubsch desk. It has three hidden drawers, while its natural oak finish means it will work with almost any colour. Pair it with this shelf to give a place to keep papers safe or display magazines. Wall shelf €160, desk €800. hubsch-interior.com

All-in-one

We don’t all have the luxury of a separate room to dedicate to an office space, so Made’s wall-mounted desk is perfect for integrating a work area into another room. Combine it with a complementary shelving unit for a combined storage and study space. Jory modular desk €329, and Jory modular shelves €249. made.com

Take a stand 

If you work from home full-time, you need to consider the desk you choose carefully. After all, you’re going to be putting in some serious hours there. We now know that hours sitting for a long time in one position isn’t good for us, so this String Works desk can be adjusted to standing height, allowing to you vary your working position. Your back will thank you. Around €2027. nest.co.uk
