This list gathers together names for all the major types of desks into one place, as an easy interior decorating resource. Types of desks to help in selecting setting furniture for the office or home. There are many choices to make when picking out desks. Most importantly, space limitations will determine the kind of desks chosen for a given area. There's also the general style of the decor in the space already, the materials the desks are made from, cost calculations and value as well as attempts to make best use of the shape and layout of the room.

When choosing desks, it's important to focus on how it will be used and what function it will service in the home or office. Is this going to be primarily for decoration? Something people will rely on daily for utility? Does it need to fit the aesthetic of the room it will be in, or can it be stored elsewhere or hidden out of sight, so its look and feel won't matter as much? Finally, some people will decorate with attention to the flow of the room, which will make picking out just the right kind of desks all the more important.
