While budgets are tight and we don't want to make a huge investment, we aren't looking for a throwaway fix either. Instead, we're set on finding an affordable desk that's built to last as a worthwhile piece inside our space. We hunted down all the under-$150 styles we could find that are (a) still available to ship to your door and (b) not a temporary eyesore.
When the day finally comes for us to head back into our real offices, each of the options ahead will still serve an at-home purpose — whether it's as your makeshift dining table, a bonus storage unit for books, stand-in bedroom vanity, dedicated puzzle and crafting spot, or just your new favorite spot to WFH at.
At Refinery29, we’re here to help you navigate this overwhelming world of stuff. All of our market picks are independently selected and curated by the editorial team. If you buy something we link to on our site, Refinery29 may earn commission.
