Best office desks of 2022: top desks for home working and more


We’ve sniffed out the best office desks in a range of different categories, so you get the best value for money.
The best office desks will help you work comfortably and safely, whether you’re in the office or at home. Office desks prioritize pragmatism over aesthetics, which is why most of them would stick to conservative color schemes designed to blend seamlessly in an office environment. So, while there are so many options out there, including budget-basement ones you might be tempted to get to save money, you’re better off investing that in an office desk designed with your well-being in mind. We’ve compiled the best office desks have to offer, all of which pair beautifully with an ergonomic office chair (opens in new tab) or even a great gaming chair (opens in new tab). We haven’t tested them ourselves, except of course where it’s made clear that there’s a review on TechRadar Pro. You may also want to have a look at our best standing desk buying guide. However, we’ve done our thorough research of the desks in question, comparing relative specs, available features, build materials, feedback across various online forums, and customer reviews. We’re also taken into account factors such as support, warranties, and overall value proposition. So, you can rest assured that our top picks are truly the best out there. Office Hippo’s professional desk is our pick for the best all-rounder. It’s suitably well-built and sturdy, as well as offering a good range of different sizes, with a palatable price tag. The desk is fairly easy to put together – we own one ourselves, and managed the task with no bother – and it’s very solid, with the actual desktop being an inch thick. As mentioned, you can get it in a variety of sizes, including the largest model which is 180cm wide, and comfortably allows for two people to work side-by-side, with plenty of space for a couple of monitors, and a printer or multifunction device between. The smaller models, at 80cm or 120cm, are perfect for a single desk, or in the latter case someone who wants a roomy single desk to fit plenty of stuff on. The Office Hippo is plenty deep enough at 80cm, as well. One neat extra worth mentioning is that there are nifty cable management holes on either end of the desk. As mentioned, we’ve owned this desk (which comes in a range of different woods and colors) for some years, and have been very happy with it, so can definitely recommend it as great value for money considering the not too wallet-damaging asking price. You should be able to get hold of this in the US as well as the UK, but those State-side who can’t find the Office Hippo (or an economical way to get one shipped over) should look at this Bush Office Desk from Walmart (opens in new tab), which is another sturdy product that’s a very similar size and style, complete with cable management holes. If you need an L-shaped desk to go in a corner (or elsewhere for that matter), then this model sold on Amazon represents great value – particularly with a $20 off coupon at the time of writing. The frame is made of steel and the desktop itself is MDF, plus a neat extra touch comes with the addition of leveling studs on the feet which can be adjusted in order to provide extra stability on an uneven floor. Not only is it sturdy, going by online feedback, but this office desk is easy to assemble. The Casaottima also comes with a small shelf – for a monitor, or perhaps speakers, for example – which can be attached to the left-hand or right-hand side of the desk.
