Step-by-Step Guide to Finding a Desk 

Step 1: Measure your space and know what your maximum and minimum height, width and depth is before you shop.

Step 2: Determine how much surface area you need for creative activities, computers, devices and paperwork.

Step 3: Consider the features you want – do you need drawers? A particular material for certain projects?

Step 4: Figure out what style and finishes work with your decor – or maybe you’re trying out a new look!

Step 5: Select a chair to match your desk

Step 6: Accessorize with storage and organizational tools
