A desk takes the place of a nightstand in this bedroom, yet it blends in so smoothly that it doesn't immediately read as a work area. Keeping the finish and style consistent with the bed helps to integrate the two visually, and the large piece of artwork mounted above takes some of the focus off the computer.
Tip: If you use a computer in a bedroom workspace, consider a laptop model so you can tuck it away at bedtime — that way, you'll be less tempted to check email in the wee hours.
Bedrooms are often designed so that windows flank the most natural spot to orient the bed, which can make furniture placement tricky. If yours is the same way, choose a low desk that won't obscure the sunlight and the views.
A bay window makes a natural bump-out for slipping in a desk. If it's in the budget, consider a similar remodel to gain a few extra feet of floor space.
If you don't have a full wall to use, how about a corner? This desk warms up what would have been a dead zone without it.
