10 Slim Narrow Desks for Small Spaces

Slim Narrow Depth Compact Home Office Desk

Narrow Desks for Small Spaces

The need for a home office computer has increased. However, the average UK home size has shrunk! This fact is regularly reported in the media.

Indeed, in April the Metro reported Britain has the smallest homes in Europe*. The Royal Institute of British Architects advised the average size of a new one-bedroom apartment is a mere 46 square metres. It can be difficult to find a small home office desk for such a compact home!

Many home office desks have an average depth of 60cm (600mm) or 23.6″. This may well be too deep for some small spaces.
