A com­pact desk/dress­ing ta­ble can work in a kitchen as well as a small study or home of­fice.

Look for styles with lift-up lids or built-in draw­ers for added value. Avoid ma­te­ri­als that can be eas­ily scratched and select some­thing sturdy.

In­vest in a com­fort­able, sup­port­ive chair or stool to slide un­der­neath. Most ranges will of­fer a match­ing seat but if not, take note of the height of the desk/ta­ble and choose a chair to suit.
