The All-in-One Home Office: A Desk with Shelves and Drawers
These budget-wise desks with drawers and shelves transform any blank space or corner into a modern or traditional home office in an instant.
While desks may seem pretty much cut-and-dry, you'll need to consider your needs, your available space and the rooms' size--even yours--as well as the desks functionality and storage.
I'll mention each desk's features outside of your main pursuit, that being a desk with drawers and shelves, as you go along. And I'm sure you'll find the best desk with optimal storage for all budgets.
Computer Desks with File Drawers: an unexpected perk
This computer desk and the above, white desk is available in a host of finishes and look very much like traditional furniture. I included this desk for its ample storage.
Aside from the typical desk drawers and the hutch's shelves, there's an out-of-the-way shelf for software underneath the desk top, and desk's bottom drawer is a must-have file drawer for hanging files. How convenient is that for easy access while on the phone?
For desk top computer work, there's a nice CPU cabinet and a pull-out keyboard tray.

Deciding Where Your Desk Will Be Going
I'm sure you've decided where you'll be setting up shop but a desk with lots of shelves and drawer space to boot, like this corner desk, you might change your mind.
Small spaces need small desks but you can never go wrong with a room of either size when you relegate your home office to a corner, keeping the clutter from 'growing legs' and sauntering off into never-never land (especially if you have kids, like me).
This modern corner desk has open shelves you can access from either side, and three drawers--one of them a hanging file drawer. I truly believe this desk deserves an award for its smart, ergonomic design: there's not an inch of wasted space!
Here's the rundown on the desk's specs:
- DIMENSIONS (L x W x H): 63 x 59 x 45 inches
Adding Light to Your Work Space on the Cheap
You can add task lighting in the way of a desk lamp, as the images here suggest or you can opt for an under-counter bar light with adjustable lights. I prefer the adjustable lighting to keep eyestrain to a minimum. I'll talk about that later.
For now, these heavyweight desks with shelves and storage drawers by Bush are totally adequate for your home office needs.
Budget-Friendly Mission Style Computer Desks with Supply Drawer & Shelves
Like the images show, this style computer desk is attractive as a piece of furniture, and is well-rated for its size, functionality and comfortable design.
The prices are slightly different but both computer desks are super-cheap without being 'cheap.' I'm familiar with Bush Furniture, and know how sturdy and heavy these desks are, especially with the shelves.
Here's the specs for both the white, black and grey desks:
- Storage Shelf w/ Division Panels
- Supply Drawer
- Attractive Mission Style/Hardware
- CPU Cabinet
- Integrated Keyboard Shelf
- Large Desk Top/Work Surface

Economy Computer Desk with Shelves and Drawers
This desk with two drawers and shelves, has it all for storage capacity, style and price. It's a serious piece of furniture for us work-at-homers, glued to our PCs as there's accommodations for the CPU and printer along with a slide-out keyboard tray.
Too, the back is simply a panel, so if you need more than the one hole for your electronics' cords, it's an easy fix; simply punch or cut out another.
Sauder Computer Desk with Shelves and File Drawers
This desk is one of the larger pieces I've seen without being imposing in smaller spaces.
NOTE: I'm familiar with Sauder and their furniture is laminated wood product, which is very heavy and durable.
Dimensions: 48" W x 23" D x 59" H
Well, which desk did you find most attractive? I'm half utility/ half appearance, so I'll forgo the drawers, opt for the photo boxes as storage 'drawers' and enjoy the desk's shelves, shelves and did I say, 'shelves?'
