For this post, I have put together a collection of the best kid’s desks currently available. Looking for more ideas? See my guide to all kids furniture. Also see my top recommendations for armchair for kids and table and chair sets.
UPDATED: 11 November 2020
MY TOP PICK:
A personal choice, but my favourite is the Junior Pop-up Desk from The Paper Hive Company, because I love that it is 100% recyclable and is so easy to build and pack away in under 20 seconds.
If you want to create a space for your kids to get creative with art and crafts or to sit and do their homework, then a desk is the perfect solution.
Once you know the space you have available look around for something that will fit into that space nicely.
Also choose an age appropriate desk and think about what they are going to use the desk for i.e. art with lots of supplies will require a larger desktop than say one which will just be used for a computer.
