Buying Guide

The different types of small secretary desks are typically based on their material and the type of drawers or accessories they have. Alternatively, their basic shape can yield different styles: for example, a small desk could be shaped so that it fits intuitively into a corner.

Small secretary desks can have hutches, fold-out desk spaces, or several drawers under the desk space. They’re typically made out of wood and can be colored to fit the aesthetic of your space—which, in a small home, can make a world of different.

Nevertheless, all secretary desks have built-in storage above the secretary console and you’ll want to get one that has the right amount of storage for you.

Small secretary desks are built to take up a tiny footprint yet give you a place to keep stationery, complete brief tasks, and have a little bit of aesthetic storage.

To meet those goals, look for secretary desks that match your current decor and style aims (e.g., by matching materials and colors to the rest of your home) and have features to support practical storage. These may include shelves, drawers, electronic support (e.g., built-in chargers) and hutches.

We also like to see modern conveniences such as built-in cord management and soft-close drawers to make these fully-functioning parts of your home.

A secretary desk is a piece of furniture resembling a writing desk, used for working from home as well as storing documents and files. They are typically fitted with drawers, one of which is usually pulled out from the front. It is then lowered to provide a writing surface that is flat and secure.

They can store important items, such as passports, books, and stationery. Small secretary desks are perfect for providing you with a work area if you have limited space. As well as being used to work from and archive folders, they can also be used as an entryway console for keeping keys, phones, wallets, and other essentials, or as a bedroom vanity for storing and displaying makeup.
