Corner computer desk are one good way to avoid wasting some space. A corner computer desk can fit in a corner of your office and can have shelves, CD and DVD racks as well as drawers to accommodate many of the other items you need to have in your office. This style of computer desk will really save quite a bit of space.
Corner computer desks are available in many different models and finishes. Of course solid real wood desks are top quality furniture, and desks in cherry, mahogany, oak, pine or walnut are very popular. Computer desks can also be purchased in the less common exotic woods if your taste is for something out of the ordinary.
In some modern offices high tech glass and metal furnishings, including computer desks, are trendy and this may be the choice for you. Low cost corner computer desks are manufactured from pressed wood with an applied simulated wood grain finish. These popular desks will look quite good but they never of course have the quality or appearance of real wood.
