A bedroom is a place designed for comfort and relaxation. However, it's becoming increasingly popular to position a desk in this room as well. Having a desk in the bedroom makes it easy to have both a workspace and a place for comfort in one room. There's no doubt that desks can positively contribute to the overall style and aesthetic of the bedroom.

Something to consider when you're wanting to add a desk to your bedroom is the space in your room. Adding another piece of furniture may require more thoughtful consideration for how you'll fit all the furniture pieces neatly into the room. When it's all said and done, you'll likely immensely enjoy the benefits of having a desk in the bedroom.
If positioning a desk in your bedroom is appealing to you, then you're probably wondering how best to do so. We put together a photo list of 10 different bedrooms with desks layouts that you can employ in your home. So, without further ado, let's get to it!
1. Desk Nook
In this room layout, the desk is tucked into a nook underneath the bedroom window. Two wardrobes separate the desk from the bunk beds. This slight bit of separation makes it easy to have one side for play and sleep and the other side for dedicated work. For a child's room, it's important to have two distinct areas.
The desk has been built into the wall, giving the room a seamless look. Plenty of storage exists in the drawers under the desktop.
2. Desk Along The Wall
Positioning the desk along the wall helps create a distraction-free environment. While you're working at the desk, you'll be less tempted to hop into bed since it's out of your line of vision.
Ensure that the desk you place in the room matches the overall style of the room. In this case, even the desk has an industrial aesthetic. The desk chair has a pop of yellow, which complements the other yellow features.
3. Desk Next To The Bed
Since the bed and desk are in such close quarters, you'll want the two furniture pieces to complement each other in style. Two clashing pieces of furniture will look misplaced and disruptive to the room design. The painted black wall demarcates the sleeping area from the rest of the room. A clean, organized desk keeps the room looking well-organized.
With the desk positioned next to the bed, it allows for more open floor space. Take advantage of that by laying down a cozy area rug and stylish pouf.

4. Split Room
Place the desk on the opposite wall of the bed. This style creates a look of an alley, opening up the middle of the room. With French doors in the room, you'll want to be able to easily access them. Maneuverability is also essential whenever you have multiple pieces of large furniture in a room. This room layout has a low profile but high functionality.
5. Sandwiched Furniture
This room layout has a bed that's sandwiched by two pieces of furniture: a desk and a low-sitting table. Both pieces of furniture require chairs, so the bed fits nicely right between them, creating symmetry in the room layout. The blue shag area rug helps tie the whole area together without overwhelming the space.

6. Matching Furniture
Matching furniture helps the desk blend into the room design. You can barely tell the desk is there since it shares the same style as the various bookshelves located around the room. Since the desk is low profile, other design aspects of the room can stand out. Even the pink desk chair complements the other soft pink decor pieces.
7. Against A Window
If you have room between your bed and a window, what better use of space than positioning a desk there? With a desk this close to the bed, it's necessary to ensure that there are at least a few feet of space between the two furniture pieces. The desk has to be accessible after all.
Pushing your desk against the window allows for natural light to flood your workspace. This has the potential to increase work productivity and overall positivity.
8. Corner Desk
Fill in the corner of your room with the addition of a desk. Having a desk in the corner of the room can help limit distractions whenever you're working at it. Whenever you work, slightly face more toward the open side of the room to prevent any feelings of claustrophobia. Decorate both walls above the desk to give the space more life and character.
9. Furniture On One Corner
This room layout features furniture in one corner of the room. The desk, bed, nightstand, and shelves share the space along two walls. This layout opens up the rest of the room for moving about. The all-white furniture fosters a seamless look in the room so that the desk is not an eyesore. Floating shelves bridge the gap between the desk and the bed, tying the two together.
10. Separate Spaces
A layout like this one creates two separate areas in the room. One area is dedicated to sleeping while the other area is dedicated to working. The two steps in the middle of the room help make this setup possible. An area rug in the office space makes it look more livable. You can enjoy the benefits of having designated areas while having everything in one room.
