Modular furniture is always distinguished by special convenience and functionality. In the case of combining a computer table with a cabinet, a comfortable workplace for a nursery or an office is obtained.
Features of the
Often, a computer desk is used not only for working on a PC, but also as the main workplace. In the rooms of children and teenagers, it plays the role of a place for study, creativity and reading. It is not very convenient to get up all the time to get the book necessary for work from the closet, especially if the home library is in another room, for example, the living room. Therefore, there were computer tables with a wardrobe that allows you to store books nearby.
This piece of furniture provides a spacious console with space for an LCD monitor or laptop, and you can also write on it. Book shelves surround the work area, making it easy to reach the volume you need. It will be convenient for students and schoolchildren to store notebooks, albums and other educational materials in the closet.
Also, the cabinet can be equipped with small closed or open niches. The latter, as a rule, are used to install the system unit inside. However, if you have a laptop and not a computer, you can use it as you see fit. Closed compartments are used to put papers, books, textbooks or toys in there, if we are talking about a children's room.
Computer tables combined with a wardrobe come in different models.
A computer desk combined with shelving is an ideal option for organizing a place to work and study at home. Large tables can replace a separate bookcase. Smaller tables with shelves can be used to store essential books and reference books next to the computer.
In addition to stationary computer tables combined with a wardrobe, there are folding and pull-out pieces of furniture. They can be an ordinary cabinet, where the work console is hidden. However, with one movement of your hand, it is easy to extend the work panel and turn it into a desk or a place to work on your computer.
In recent years, such transforming tables have gained immense popularity primarily as furnishings for children's rooms. They combine several pieces of furniture at once, which makes them an economical and ergonomic option.
With roll-out shelves
Additional shelves can be pulled out from under the table top. There you can put a keyboard from a desktop computer or use it to store paper for a printer. Pull-out shelves at the bottom of this item are used to arrange office equipment.
With multilevel table top
Worktops in corner tables adjacent to different walls can be located at different heights. This is done for zoning, separating, for example, the area of / u200b / u200bwork on a computer from a writing area.
Sometimes it seems most convenient to hide the console until the time when it is needed, for example, if the desk is not used daily or is the subject of a living room headset.
In such cases, the secretary comes to the rescue. This interior element originated in France and is a small cabinet with drawers and niches for storing things, where the working panel has a folding mechanism.
These are modern models of computer tables with additional shelves above the table top. They can be used to store books, notebooks, CDs and decorative items. For example, a large amount of free space allows you to decorate your work area with framed photos and souvenirs. They can help inspire you while working at your desk.
Another popular replacement for the classic desk model. It is a mini-chest of drawers with a high back wall and drawers, which are located not only as usual under the table top, but also above it. The upper compartments store writing supplies and other important small items.
It is a very archaic design item, which is usually an element of baroque and classic interiors, and serves as a decorative detail rather than a functional one.
If you wish, you can hide the workplace in a closet. The sliding doors are easy to open to reveal the console. The chair can also be stored there. This technique helps not to clutter up the bedroom or living room space with additional furniture. Also, this option will appeal to those whose workplace is always an artistic mess. Roomy shelves can be arranged above the workplace.
Sometimes modular headsets combine in one element not only a workplace, but also a wardrobe. Although at first glance this division seems unusual, it is not entirely true. An array of cabinetry separates the computer desk from the rest of the room, creating a work area. It is believed that clear zoning of the room helps significantly in the process of work or relaxation, since a conditioned reflex is developed.
Therefore, people who find it difficult to focus on business at home, you can think about buying such a model. It is very economical while providing ample storage space. Sometimes there is a sleeping place above the tabletop. Such models are popular in the rooms of children and teenagers.
Corner computer desks come in a variety of sizes and vary in the height and width of the table top, as well as the dimensions of the accompanying accessories.
Even in a small bedroom, it is possible to install a corner table with bookshelves or a pencil case. Its tabletop may be narrower than that of the office giants, but it is quite enough for a comfortable work. Large comfortable tables are most often located in apartments in living rooms, when it is decided to allocate several zones in this room, including the work area, or in the offices of offices and private houses.
They are also ideal for children, as the spacious worktop can accommodate all the textbooks or sketchbooks and creative materials needed for homework. Often, when doing crafts for this purpose, the floor is used, but a large computer desk can solve this problem.
The most preferable models are medium in height: about 80-90 centimeters. They are suitable for an adult of average height or a teenager. The lines of children's furniture have special dimensions that correspond to the height of a child of a certain age.
The width of the table top also starts at 80 centimeters. This is a more individual indicator, and the appropriate model should be selected based on your own needs and the size of the room.
Modern production allows us to produce furniture of any color: from natural with a woody structure to bright and aggressive. It is recommended to choose more neutral options, especially for office furniture. Ebony or light wood tables are ideal for any decor. Tea tree-colored furniture looks beautiful.

Bright plastic tables are most convenient in children's rooms, but you need to be prepared for the fact that such furniture will soon get bored or have to be changed during repairs.
