So it looks like the work from home life isn’t going to let up as soon as we’d like. While some workers are allowed to get back to the office, many are opting to continue working from home to reduce the risk of catching and spreading coronavirus. If you’ve been holding out on buying a desk for your home, you might finally be tempted to give your dining table, sofa or bed a break. Costing less than $200 each, these are the best cheap desks on the internet.
Furinno Computer Desk
Listen, it’s a cheap desk and it’ll give you somewhere to work on without breaking your back. And the side shelves are a nice touch for something that costs less than dinner for two.
Mind Reader Home Office Computer Desk
Roll your new desk wherever you please to work while standing up. It has an adjustable height and two tiers for optimal working conditions.
Ikea Micke Desk
Leave it to Ikea to make an under-$100 desk that doesn’t suck. The Micke has a simple design with ample storage space and a clever storage system for hiding cords and wires. “The goal was to create a real dream product with maximum functions in a minimum space,” Henrik Preutz, Micke’s designer, writes on the website.
Thinktoo Wall-Mounted Desk
For those living in tight quarters, opt for this wall-mounted desk that provides a plethora of storage.

This solid wood desk with a metal frame adapts to whatever you need it to be: work desk, gaming hub, writing table, etc.
Zinus Soho Rectangular Table
Shoppers might recognize Zinus as a mattress brand, but it dabbles in other furniture categories, too. The Soho table is a no-frills work station with a smooth vinyl top and steel frame. You can work on it and eat on it, but don’t call it a dining table. Maintain a healthy distance between your living spaces and your work space.
Barry Floating Desk
For those tight on space and working on a tighter budget, this floating desk from Wayfair carves out a little working area for you to get things done. The two drop-down shelves keep things hidden away for an added dose of storage to what might already be a too-tiny space.
Heng Console Table
The Heng desk looks a bit like an elementary school-style desk with its rounded corners (no waist bruising) and all-wood design. Hide your notes in the cubbies, but you probably have no one to pass them to.

You may not have a corner office, but you can have a corner desk. This L-shaped desk from Amazon features a large work surface with a useful storage nook.
SHW Home Office Desk
For a more minimalist, streamlined version of the SHW desk above, this option features an engineered wood surface with a white steel frame and no shelving.
Ikea Alex Desk
For a splash of color, buy a blue Alex desk from Ikea. At about 52 inches wide, the desk requires a bit more space than the other low-profile desks on this list. But who’s to say you don’t sit two people right next to each other? (Respect social distancing rules unless you live with said person.)
Home Depot Computer Desk with Shelf
Throw your laptop or computer monitor on the desk's shelf to bring it closer to eye level so you aren't huddled over and hurt your back. Additional accessory storage is great for those who want to turn this work desk into a gaming station.
Designa Computer Desk
For an industrial-style desk, check out Designa's two-tiered option, which allows for dual monitors and has ample space for decor.
