Features of children's desks
Many children's MDF desks come with stools that tuck neatly underneath the desk when they are no longer in use, which saves space and prevents tripping.
Storage compartments are a popular design feature where the hinged flap your child will work on top of can be opened, revealing space to safely store pens, pencils, crayons, paper, pads and other items.
Children's desks are ideal for both homework or arts and crafts as the large work areas and inbuilt storage make it easy to complete a project or homework assignment.
Types of children's desks
Medium density fibreboard (MDF) is an engineered wood that is very strong and durable, making it ideal for the everyday use of a desk. Likewise, chipboard is also another popular material for children's desks.
Wood effect desks can be found in a number of design styles with coloured desks such as blue and pink, plus more neutral tones such as 'natural' wood colours. For younger children, themed designs with classic children's characters such as Winnie the Pooh and Minnie Mouse add a sense of fun and help children to engage with the tasks they are completing.
Ergonomic MDF desks feature adjustable chairs and tables. For example, the top of the desk can be slanted to an angle that is comfortable and easily reached, which in turn helps support good posture. Similarly, the height of the chair can be adjusted for comfort.
Other desks combine a writing area with inbuilt compartments to house storage bins for toys, helping keep play areas tidy, especially in the bedroom .
For older children, wood effect computer desks more akin to an office desk are available. These typically come with inbuilt drawers or small cabinets for storage.
