Normally the purchase of traditional office furniture can be accomplished by perusing stores that sell chairs, tables, lamps, cabinets, and other pieces needed for working. However, computer desks can be very steep. Are there any inexpensive options? Yes.
Cheap computer desks are easy to come by - you just have to be a little creative and willing to do some hunting. So, if you’re looking for an affordable workstation, keep reading for a few great hints and tips on where you can find innovative and creative desks on the cheap.
Reclaim a shop or hardware table to use as your next computer desk. They’re the right height, extremely durable, reasonably priced and even offer a contemporary and chic industrial look. For added durability, apply a few coats of varnish to protect your work surface from glass rings or wet spills.
Build on your workshop style and put up a workman’s peg board over your desk. You can then use it to hang your whiteboard or work and computer supplies like network drives, hubs and other computer peripherals and accessories.
You will be able to make your own desk easily and simply. Using a basic pattern for a table or a specific desk plan, you can construct cheap computer desks with a single sheet of plywood and for well under $50.
If you don’t own a power saw or are uncomfortable doing your own cutting, you can often have your wood cut for you free of charge at your local hardware store. That means you’ll only be dealing with the final construction and finishing of the desk. Keep in mind though that most hardware stores, to ensure employee safety, limit their cuts to pieces that are at least 12 inches long.
Grab a used or antique find at a nearby garage store or flea market and transform it into the computer desk of your dreams. Whether it’s an old dining room table or classic linoleum table, you can make it work. Of course, you can always buy a used desk too.
To score some great finds of old desks or tables, keep your eye on local garage sales. While consignment stores, charity shops and flea markets may have good finds, they often don’t have the great deals you can pick up at garage sales.
So, it may not be as fun as building your own desk or digging through garbage for a gem, but Ikea offers a huge selection of cheap computer desks. While their desks aren’t made from the finest materials or to the highest standards, they are affordable and capable of filling a short term need.
