If you have the skill, you can design and build your desk to make it fully customized for your work needs. If a space for your home office is sufficient to a corner of a room only, an L-shaped desk will be the best choice of design. Create a computer desk on one side and a writing desk on the other side. If you require a lot of storage, add cabinets and drawers on each side of the table and build shelves that can be placed on the wall.
