Secretary Furniture Desk Cabinet

Updated

Secretary furniture is charming and can be added to any room in a house. We’ve seen them in bathrooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, entryways, living rooms, kitchens, and of course, offices. They are exceptionally versatile and can be found as extravagant or as subtle as you’d like. Some are built with many drawers that are stacked on top of each other, while others are simpler and made with only a few drawers that sit side by side.

Secretary Furniture Piece with Glass Cabinets

Niagara

This grandiose secretary desk with a solid mahogany top and oak wood base is joined with a dovetail joinery method. It features a gorgeous arched pediment, three shelves, five soft close drawers, and a drop-down cabinet with serpentine-shaped drawers inside.

Designer Advice:

This lovely secretary cabinet is perfect in dining rooms and is a terrific choice for displaying delicate China and crystal glassware while stowing away holiday-themed placemats and extra silverware. Its 100-pound weight capacity is incredible for storing items; however, its solid wood build makes it a lot heavier and harder to relocate. Nevertheless, it adds an extravagant focal point.

Collapsible Secretary Desk with X frame

Grovelane

This simplistic secretary desk comes with a single wood sliding self-closing wood scored drawer and is designed with the minimalist in mind. Choose between four neutral color options: gray wash, antique walnut, natural, and white.

Designer Advice:

Its portable folding mechanism attracts space-saving individuals and those with minimal space in their homes. The small top on this secretary desk is ideal in entryways, teenage bedrooms, and college dorm rooms, and not so much in home offices where one might need a hutch, storage cabinets, or a larger surface area to work on.

Buying Guide

Ideal for small homes since they are a good space-saving measure, but equally suited to a large home where there is no lack of space, the secretary desk cabinet is a versatile and popular piece of furniture which could make your busy life a lot easier. If you regularly work from home, find yourself without even workspace around the house or just want something different to put in your study or living room, a desk cabinet such as this could be the answer. Let's take a closer look at the designs that you will find.

  • Desk Hutches. A desk hutch will add storage on top of your secretary desk.
  • Roll Top. This is a common feature of narrow secretary desks. The roll top is a cylindrical covering which you can pull over a surface so shelves, compartments, and nooks on the desk are covered.
  • Pull-Out Surface. A panel that can be pulled out and tucked away will give you extra work surface that you can use for writing or mounting a keyboard.
  • Cord Accommodations. Modern secretary desks have specially designed holes to conceal and organize cable wires for effective wire management.

Secretary desk cabinet with mirror and shelves

This design is like several pieces of furniture all in one item. It's a great way to get everything you need in one room, even when you are pushed for space. At the top of the cabinet is a mirror, which is either square or circular and has a wooden frame around it. Below this, there may be a pull-out desk, forming the main feature of the cabinet. There are often drawers underneath this for even more convenience when storing your essentials. At the side of the desk, there is a unit of shelves, which may or may not have a glass door protecting it. On the shelves, you are able to store your favorite ornaments, or you can use it as extra storage space for books, paperwork and more. There are normally around four shelves and three to four drawers. The wood may be antique and traditional, or you can opt for a more defined and modern oak or pine wood look.

White shabby chic secretary desk cabinet

If you don't want something that looks too vintage and old in your home, opt for a lighter and brighter secretary desk. White cabinets are able to brighten up your home more, and if they are kept in a natural condition, it's easy to paint over them with a different color in the future if you wish. The cabinet is taller than many other designs, such as the luggage trunk cabinet, and stands at around six or seven feet. The top of the unit often has shelves, covered by a glass door or other form of protection. The middle of the cabinet consists of the secretary desk, which may include other storage space within it as well as the space to do work. Below the desk are either three medium-sized drawers, or more shelves.

Repurposed luggage trunks secretary desk cabinet

A great way to make the most out of luggage trunks which would otherwise go to waste, a repurposed and recycled look is ideal for contemporary homes and is highly practical too. The design takes the form of two or three large trunks, which are turned on their side and affixed together to create a larger unit. The top or middle trunk can be opened and closed to create the secretary desk, while the other trunks can be used for storage space. These desks are often dark in color, and can either be made yourself and then decoupaged for extra design, or bought from a manufacturer.
