When choosing the best furnishings for a home studio space, you'll find plenty of choices of recording studio desks. Your choice of studio desk is just as important as a desk for a home office, as it will likely become the hub of your recording space.

So, how do you pick the ideal desk? Here are some options and ideas to consider:

Choosing the best studio desk

When it comes to music production, you need an effective studio desk to work at a high level of quality and efficiency. A dedicated workspace increases productivity by allowing for easy access to your best tools. Therefore, you'll need enough surface area for things like keyboards and mic stands in addition to your computer.

Before you start desk shopping, take measurements of your essential tools. Knowing that a desk has enough room for the basics is the best way to begin.

Build your own standing desk

Standing desks are just as prevalent among studio trends as home office trends - and for good reason. Standing desks provide many benefits, including increased circulation and better posture.

While you could spend thousands of dollars on a height adjustable desk, you can also DIY a simpler option. Include an extra tall swivel chair or stool, so you can sit or stand even with the increased height.

For the secret maximalist

On the other end of the desk spectrum, you'll find furnishings completely decked-out with bonus features. Think built-in cup holders, headphone holders and USB/power outlets. Attachments and cable management features are huge bonuses, as music production gear comes with myriad cables and wires to wrangle.

These are only a few pointers to follow when comparing studio desks, but keeping them in mind during your process will help you prioritize your needs.
