About Writing Desk Bureaus

A desk in the home can often look cluttered and out of place. In fact, most desks end up being a dumping ground for just about anything, making them quite an eyesore. What's ingenious about a writing desk bureau, however, is that you can hide away all that clutter in less than a second by simply closing up the desk. A writing desk bureau is therefore perfect for downstairs use, where you don't necessarily want your work clutter to be on display all the time. Unlike a simple writing desk, a bureau is more like a hidden home office with any combination of inner and outer drawers, shelves and compartments for storing, filing and keeping your work space organised. There are primarily two types of bureaus: those with a roll down top (often better for compact spaces) and those that drop down with a hinge to form a writing surface. Some writing desk bureaus come with a lock and key, which allow you to keep things such as laptops and phones hidden from prying eyes or little fingers. Classic writing desk bureaus are traditionally not very practical for desktop computers, mainly because of the wires, however, modern ones tend to be modified with pre-drilled plug holes in the back to accommodate them. That said, with the advent of laptops and tablet PCs, this isn't really a problem any more. Bureaus come in all shapes and sizes, and because they've been around since the 1600s there are some very attractive antique or reproduction ones to be found, the most popular and affordable being the Victorian pine variety.
