+$If you spend a lot of time working in front of a computer, you'll know how important it is to have the best desk possible for your budget. Anyone who has sat at an uncomfortable desk all day will know the associated woes. A desk that’s too low or too high can cause you back problems; too much or too little space can hinder your organisation and distract your creative flow. So when it comes to buying a new desk, where do you start?

+$There are a few key factors to bear in mind, and you’ll need to decide which are most important to you. Are you all about ergonomics? Do you want an adjustable desk so you can sit or stand as you work? Is cable management important to you? Overall design? Does the desk need to match your chair (see our+$best Office Chairs+$post for inspiration)? Are you solely basing your decision on price? Or do you just want something with a decent warranty in case something goes wrong?

+$Whatever your requirements and budget, we’ve rounded up five of the best desks of 2019 to help you choose the right option for you.

Best desk: Tribesigns Modern Minimalist desk

+$01. Tribesigns Modern Minimalist desk

+$A simple but sturdy computer desk

外形尺寸:+$47 X 23.6 X 29.13" |高度可调:没有|电缆管理:没有

+$Sturdy And Robust
+$Adjustable feet for uneven floors
+$No Storage
+$Not Height-adjustable

+$If you want to keep things simple, try+$Tribesigns' Modern Minimalist desk+$. The legs are made from heavy-duty power-coated steel, which might be more hardcore than is strictly necessary for most of your design studio or home office needs, but will certainly take anything you can throw at it (and the industrial look is pretty cool, too).

+$At 47-inches wide, this is the smallest desk in the range. UK readers might struggle to get hold of the wider models, if you're based in the US there are 55-inch and 63-inch versions readily available too. There are also a range of different frame/tabletop colour options to choose from. The top is made from laminated MDF, which is durable and easy to clean.

+$What you see is what you get here: there's no inbuilt storage, and you can't change the leg length (although the feet have adjustable pads you can use to keep the desk stable on uneven floors).

+$Ergotron produces a whole range of ergonomically focused desk options, but our favourite is perhaps the+$Workfit-TL+$. This is a desk topper – it sits on your existing workstation. You can switch between standing and sitting by lifting the paddle on either side of the desk and raising or lowering it. The process is smooth and the tabletop remains well balanced throughout (you won't need to worry about your Macbook sliding off).

+$The lowest setting is just an inch or so above your existing desk, and the topper can be raised up to an extra 15 inches (a good level for even the tallest users). There are zip ties and cable management piping to keep your wires under control when adjusting your desk.

The two built-in shelves provide space for you to keep your things, so the worktop can stay clutter-free. It's available in a wide range of colours to suit your office decor.
