There are three main factors that need to be considered when designing a desk for a home office. The first is to account for all of the items that will need to be stored and/or displayed. One common mistake is to not properly measure for the items that will need to be integrated and then being stuck with a completed custom design that is not function.
The second consideration is the location and size of the entire space where the workstation will be. Once the sizing configuration for the workspace has been determined, it is key to see if it will fit in the accompanying space to scale.
The third factor to consider is what style and design you are looking for. In all likelihood you will be spending many hours at the desk and it is essential to have a comfortable, functional space.
For this project the client wanted a corner unit where they could display books and accessories.
