When you have little space to contend with in a home office setting and you need a large enough area for your computer, phone, printer, fax machine or other business accessories, a long office desk can accommodate these items nicely. By utilizing both the upper and lower areas of the desk, you can store your files, printer paper and whatever else, under the desk and off to the side while everything else can fit nicely on top and in easy reach, while still allowing for comfortable leg-room.

Of course, some would argue that a bigger desk makes one look more important.
