We love a white desk in any office, but they work particularly well in limited spaces. Something about the chic, sophisticated finish of a small white office desk makes a room feel bigger and bolder. 

Clearly, we are not the only ones who feel that way. The white compact desk trend has sky-rocketed in 2022. Buying a sitting or standing desk for small space offices is the first thing remote workers across the country are doing. 

Here are 20 of the most popular designs and a few tips on how to pick the best one for you. 

Three Top Tips for Picking the Perfect Small White Office Desk

Three Top Tips for Picking the Perfect Small White Office Desk

white desk setup has always been a firm favorite for people with minimal space. In fact, a small white desk is one of the most iconic staples of the modern-day office. Because of the immense popularity, there are plenty of varieties to choose from (as you are about to see!), but how can you narrow it down to suit you? 

Here are our three rules of thumb when it comes to picking the best white compact desk. 

Shape matters- match the desk to the layout of the room

Desks, like rooms, come in many shapes. Even if you find a very compact design, it may still feel wrong if the shape doesn't match the rest of the area. 

If you have an odd-shaped office, consider a corner desk that tucks discreetly out the way. Long skinny space? Look for a desk with similar dimensions! U-shaped desks do not work well in angled or curved rooms, just as square desks can make long rooms feel out of balance. 

Consider the bulk of the frame and how well it works

Consider the bulk of the frame and how well it works

A narrow white desk can still have a bold, heavy frame, and a large desk can be made out of minimalistic steel. The frame of the desk doesn’t necessarily take up any more space, but it does impact the overall aesthetic. 

Before choosing a small white office desk, think about what style of frame you like and what design is going to look best in the overall finished layout. 

Don't over compromise on strength

Something people tend to forget about when planning their small desk setup is how much weight the piece of furniture needs to hold. There is no point in buying a beautiful but tiny desk if it can't support your monitor and necessary extras. 

Always look at the weight capacity and the dimensions with equal priority.
