Versatile Desk Hutches
December 15, 2011
Great for organizing a large, messy office or providing more room in a small workspace, desk hutches are an easy way to gain additional storage space. Coming in a wide variety of styles, you can use it strictly for storage or find a larger shelf design that can double as display space.
When you don’t have enough space to dedicate an entire room as an office and instead have a multitasking living room or guest room it can be hard to add storage to an already crowded space. Since the hutch sits on top of the desk it doesn’t take up additional floor space you don’t have. Smaller writing desks with a low hutch make a nice addition to a child’s bedroom or guest room.
At home or at work, an office presents a number of challenges. Finding a balance between office equipment and creating a pleasant work space doesn’t have to be difficult. All you have to do is find the right desk hutch for your storage needs. Do you have a desk littered with paperwork? Look for a hutch with paper slots so you can free up desk space. Have lots of electronics to store, like a scanner or printer? Choose a larger shelf-like design that features a cord cutout in the back.
Make sure to consider exactly what kind of storage you need. If you like having everything at your fingertips then look for a hutch with open shelving the makes paperwork and office supplies easy to find. Prefer a more streamlined look? Opt for a hutch with plenty of cabinets or drawers for concealed storage that will keep your desk looking neat. When you’re office storage needs change, desks with an optional storage hutch allow you to remove the hutch making them a versatile piece of office furniture.
