Sunroom Writing Desk

By Kate Riley February 20, 2017

I bought my first investment house in Vegas a few years ago and I stay there whenever I visit. I’ve rented the home in the past but it’s vacant right now and for a few months. My favorite space in the house is the sunroom. When I’m there, I try to get a few hours of work done on my laptop so I wanted to give the sunroom more of a home office feel, especially since it will be rented full time by the summer.

My sweet cousin Natalie is in nursing school and she often comes over to study in peace and quiet, and she’s kind enough to water the plants in my absence. I thought a new desk in this space would serve her needs too. I bought this one from World Market and added a little ivory knob to the drawer too. Lamp, clock, and art are from Target.





I adjusted the furniture placement, moving the round thrift store table over to the left and the console table to a different wall. I also added some simple artwork above.





Writing desks are less bulky than the ones that offer drawers on the sides. What they lack in storage they make up for in their ability to showcase good looking legs. They also multitask! A writing desk can play the role of a console table, an entryway drop spot, and even a bedroom vanity, which makes a writing desk a very versatile piece.

  1. Thanks for all the desk ideas, Kate! I’ve been looking for a desk and your budget-friendly suggestions are so helpful!

  2. Hi Kate! Your posts always inspire me, I was just looking for a little desk for my child, the x-legs ones are a good solution in narrow spaces like mine.

  3. Love this room! So beautiful, fresh, and warm with all of those potted plants. A perfect place to get some work done! Also a great idea to use a writing desk for a console in an entryway. Never thought of that before!
