Best Folding Desks for Your Home Office

If you’ve been holding out for a real desk at home, it’s time to make it happen. With 60% of the American population working from home during the last few months, this new #WFH trend isn’t going away anytime soon. Let’s find you a real desk that is stylish and doesn’t look like a card table, shall we?

Best Folding Desks for Your Home Office

If you already have a real home office, chances are good that you could use a second work surface, or someone else in your home will need a desk of their own. I’ve gathered a few good candidates from Amazon because–yes–you can get decent furniture online if you know what to look for.

A folding desk is a great option, especially if you feel like your home office situation might be temporary or changing, or if you are buying a desk for an older child who might want to take it with them when they move again. As always, I’m providing these affiliate links to make it easier for you to find just the right organizing solution.

At just $65, this folding desk that requires no tools at all to set up couldn’t be easier to bring home. It folds down to just a few inches, so you can store it behind a sofa or guest room headboard.


This cute folding desk has a sanity-saving top shelf which also folds down to double as a slanted prop surface.

The dark desks just seem so heavy to me, so I went on the hunt for a white folding desk and found this one. It’s better suited for small spaces, and would work well if, for example, you needed two desks for two children. It also has the advantage of storing the top with the legs due to its hinged design.


This folding desk in a natural color is very compact but has just a smidge more storage. It doesn’t fold as compact as some of the others, but it’s a bit more stylish and would be perfectly at home in your living room. It’s very similar to the “Cory” desk from Urban Outfitters.

Looking for one more good folding desk option for you, I checked out the Origami line, which also includes folding Origami bookshelves, and found this colorful folding desk from Origami. Again, no tools required, but this one offers a very large work surface in a desk that only weighs 38 pounds. At just $104, it’s a strong contender.

If you need flexibility and easy setup, these folding desks are a great place to start.

I want you to love the space you work in, whether it’s a dedicated room or just a corner at home.
