If you don't have much space and need an extra workstation, which is a given when more than one person is working from home, then you'll need a laptop desk. These desks can be quite small and compact, but they'll get the job done when you're in a bind. While there are better-looking permanent solutions, these will perform well if you choose well.
1. The Mox Storch: Created by the Swiss designer Nando Schmidlin for the furniture company Mox, the Storch desk gets the job done pretty nicely. We like how it uses a wall for a pretty decent-sized desk.
3. DIY Super Slim Laptop Desk: This DIY solution is made from IKEA parts and fits the bill for a compact laptop desk, while remaining unobtrusive and utilitarian. Since this desk was cobbled together, you can easily add some storage in the form of baskets or small drawers.
5. The Best of Laptop-Sized Desks: Check out these Flickr Finds that will allow you to try out new solutions to your desk problems. Laptop desks can be made out almost anything.
